She won Eurovision 2018 with a song of female empowerment, and they were among the favourites to snatch the crown before Eurovision 2020 was cancelled. But it would seem that Israel’s Netta and Russia’s Little Big have a lot more in common than an ability to slay the song contest. Apparently they’re all huge fans of the moustache.

Their new collaboration Moustache celebrates that strip of hair left to grow above the upper lip. Thematically it nods to at least two earlier Eurovision acts, both of whom competed at ESC 2014: Twin Twin, who sang “Moustache” (a critique of materialism), and Conchita Wurst (who became the world’s most famous drag queen sporting facial hair).

The song opens with Little Big frontman Ilya Prusikin suggesting he’s down with women who don’t conform to traditional standards of beauty. These rules span from head to toe. He sings: “I like women with a big-big bass, big blue eyes and hair on the face. I-I-I like women that are full of grace, big moustache, sun cream on the face.”

Little Big and Netta celebrate the “Moustache” in new collab

Netta, who shares the post-verse with Little Big’s Sonya, suggests that her moustache brings plenty of guys and gals to her yard: “Too many, too many, too many, too many, too many, too many lovers.”

If anything, the sensation of her ‘stache gives said lovers a thrill: “I know you like me, now don’t be shy,
come get a-closer, and close your eyes, now tickle tickle…”

The video, set on a beach, showcases a series of women with moustaches. Signage forbids razors and encourages facial hair. The video also shows the lengths that hair-hungry Netta and Sonya will go to for extra volume and length. Following a Moustache beauty pageant, they grab the winner and shave off her facial hair, which they add to theirs.

Moustache lyrics — Netta & Little Big

Verse 1 (Ilich)
I like women with a big-big bass
Big blue eyes and hair on the face
I-I-I like women that are full of grace
Big moustache, sun cream on the face
(Gimme…)

(Netta & Sonya)
Too many, too many, too many, too many
Too many, too many lovers
Too many, too many, too many, too many
Too many, too many, give me more
Too many, too many, too many, too many
Too many, too many lovers
Too many, too many, too many, too many
Too many, too many, give me more

(Netta)
I know you like me, now don’t be shy
Come get a-closer, and close your eyes
Now tickle tickle, sexy in disguise
(Hey!)

(Netta)
I know, I know you like my moustache
I-I know, I know you like my moustache
I know, I know you like my moustache
I-I know, I know you like my moustache

Verse 2 (Ilich)
I like women with a big-big bass
Big blue eyes and hair on the face
I-I-I like women from the top-top league
Swimsuit little but the moustache big

(Netta & Sonya)
Too many, too many, too many, too many
Too many, too many lovers
Too many, too many, too many, too many
Too many, too many, give me more
Too many, too many, too many, too many
Too many, too many lovers
Too many, too many, too many, too many
Too many, too many, give me more

(Netta)
I know you like me, now don’t be shy
Come get a-closer, and close your eyes
Now tickle tickle, sexy in disguise
I know you want me, me

(Netta)
I know, I know you like my moustache
I-I know, I know you like my moustache
I know, I know you like my moustache
I-I know, I know you like my moustache

(Netta)
I know you like my moustache
I know you like my moustache
I know you like my moustache
I know you like my moustache
