For several months, Eurovision fans have been waiting for a potential duet between song contest winners Måneskin and Ukrainian fifth-placers Go_A. However, in an interview with Kateryna Osadcha on her programme Svit’ske Zhittya, Go_A frontwoman Kateryna Pavlenko revealed that the plans are off the table.
With the Roman rock group set to fly to Kyiv in the near future, Kateryna was asked whether fans of both groups could expect to hear the collaboration during Måneskin’s concert in Ukraine. Kate was rather short and answered:
“Let me immediately say that it won’t and just forever close the question.”
Kateryna added that it had to do with several “legal questions” with regards to the management and the label of Måneskin. Although an idea for a song was ready, it’s currently off the cards. The “SHUM” singer added:
“It is true that the European music market works a little differently than in Ukraine. It is not a question of earnings, but in general, a question of collaboration. Maybe it will happen, in the future, when there’s more free time, and we will realise that song. We will see.”
A potential Go_A and Måneskin duet has been rumoured ever since the contest took place in Rotterdam in May. The two avant-garde groups quickly bonded behind the scenes and spoke about their mutual wish to collaborate.
Earlier in the Summer, unfounded rumours spread that Go_A and Måneskin had indeed recorded a song together and were ready to release it. Already then Kateryna said that it had been fake news. At the time the singer also revealed that they had been dealing with certain legal issues.
