It’s been almost one month since they took victory at Eurovision 2021. However, Måneskin’s march towards world dominance is showing little sign of slowing down. Billboard’s latest global chart features three of their songs, while the band is poised to score a top ten hit in the UK.
Måneskin on the Billboard Charts
In the immediate aftermath of their win in Rotterdam, the Italians joined France’s Barbara Pravi and Ukraine’s Go_A inside the Billboard Global Chart (excl. US). However, while the latter two have fallen outside of the top 100 in the weeks since, the “Zitti E Buoni” hitmakers are actually strengthening their grip. The top 100 now features three of their songs — their Eurovision winner, the Wiwi Jam at Home favourite “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” and a cover of “Beggin” — a track that’s been a hit for many acts throughout the years, including the Four Seasons and Madcon.
Damiano, Victoria, Thomas and Ethan are even performing well after the US figures are factored in. Both “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” and “Zitte E Buoni” feature on the overall global chart too.

Måneskin set to enter the UK top 10
Måneskin have already cracked the top ten in charts all over Europe, including Sweden, Belgium, Finland and their native Italy. They now look set to do the same in the United Kingdom, albeit with the album track “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” rather than their Eurovision-winning entry “Zitti E Buoni”.
According to the latest chart update, which factors in sales and streaming figures for the first half of the week, “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” is charting at number eight. Should they maintain this momentum for the rest of the week, they will become the first Eurovision act since Loreen in 2012 to achieve a top ten hit in the UK. “Zittie E Buoni” and “Beggin” also feature further down the update.

- 8. “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE”
- 65. “Zitti E Buoni”
