If there were any doubt about which Eurovision 2021 act is the most likely to succeed commercially, it’s been stomped out and set on fire twice over. Måneskin — the nonchalant kings and queens of Italian rock — have stormed the German charts. Their cover of “Beggin'” has hit #1 in its third week on the chart, while “I Wanna Be Your Slave” is sitting at #4. It’s been on the Offizielle Deutsche Charts for five weeks, having peaked at #3. Their ESC winner “Zitti e buoni” is holding strong at #37.
Måneskin’s “Beggin'” hits Number 1 on the German charts

Måneskin have managed to overtake Olivia Rodrigo, the American popstrel who has been dominating the global charts with her song “Good 4 U” (it’s currently #1 on the Spotify Top 200 and has topped the charts in more than 20 countries).
Just for some context: Germany is the fourth biggest market for recorded music in the world. It sits behind only the US, Japan and the UK. The market pulled in about $856 million last year — and it seems that Måneskin are well-placed to grab some of those coins. Germany’s live music industry is also huge. It’s no wonder the Italian four-piece made one of their first foreign stops post-Eurovision in Berlin.
Måneskin have two Top 10s on the Official UK charts
Last week we told you how Måneskin managed to hit Number 7 on the Official UK Chart with “I Wanna Be Your Slave”, making them only the fourth Eurovision act to crack the Top 10 in the past 12 years.
Well now they’ve gone a spot higher, taking that song to #6. Meanwhile, “Beggin'” has jumped up 63 places to spot #10 after a viral spin on TikTok. Yes, that mean the groups has two Top 10 hits in the UK as well. Olivia Rodrigo is at #1.
As the Official UK Chart reports: “The rockers make history as the first Italian act to have two Top 10s on the UK singles chart simultaneously.”
Elsewhere in Europe…
On the Official Irish Singles Chart in Ireland, the band are at #5 with “I Wanna Be Your Slave” and #11 with “Beggin'”. Their Eurovision winner “Zitti e bunoi” is at #32. Olivia Rodrigo is at #1.
This is pretty amazing. The band are at #2, #3 and #4 in Eurovision 2021 host country The Netherlands with “Beggin'”, “I Wanna Be Your Slave” and “Zitti e buoni.” Olivia Rodrigo is at #1.
And it’s a similar story on the HITRADIO Ö3 charts in Austria. Olivia Rodrigo is on top — again — but Måneskin take spots 2 and 3 with “I Wanna Be Your Slave” and “Beggin'”, while “Zitti e buoni” is at #9.
VG-lista has Olivia Rodrigo at #1, but Måneskin are holding their own at #2 (“I Wanna Be Your Slave”), #6 (“Zitti e buoni”) and #7 (“Beggin'”).
