I had to look this up because I don't listen to this type of commercialized pop usually. So, I'm from Switzerland and local artists do notoriously bad here. Why exactly that is the case is a difficult question. I think it boils down to a mix of anglophile attitudes among young people (at least in regard to music), mixed with the fact that we have a small population and therefore a limited number of talented musicians. This is why the following two songs were apparently the most popular local songs of 2017 in Switzerland - but if you look at their actual ranking in the charts, they didn't even make it into the top 50. The top 10s are pretty much all American songs.
Anyway, here we go:
"Schachtar gäge Gent" by Züri West
"Sin Ti" by Loco Escrito
