Blinding Lights continues to dominate Dutch radio in April

'Blinding Lights' by The Weeknd was, for the third consecutive month, in April the most played song on Dutch radio. The hit was on air no less than 765 times at the various public and commercial Dutch radio channels. "Blinding Lights" is followed by "17 Miljoen Mensen" by Davina Michelle & Snelle with 562 plays. Racoon's "Het Is Al Laat Toch" was heard 478 times and completes the top 3.

This is shown by data from SoundAware, the company that registers for the music industry, among other things, what music is played on Dutch TV and radio stations. 'Blinding Lights' continues to be popular with Dutch radio DJs and listeners at home. The track also can be found almost continuously for months in the highest regions of the various charts.

Six Dutch hits

In addition to the hits by Davina Michelle & Snelle and Racoon, the Top 20 also contains four hit singles by other, partly, Dutch artists. Duncan Laurence can be found in 13th place, followed shortly by Martin Garrix in 14th position. Rock bands Kensington (18) and Di-Rect (20) complete the Dutch contribution.

Record company Universal Music is the main supplier and provides half of the tracks, followed by Sony Music with six and Warner Music and 8ball with two scores each.

SoundAware measures and reports on a daily basis the use of music on Dutch public and commercial channels, among others on behalf of the Stichting Nederlandse Top 40, various media agencies, record companies and radio stations.
