Måneskin’s rapid rise since their Eurovision victory is showing in the United Kingdom, with the Roman rock band doubling up in the latest weekly charts announced this afternoon.
Last week, their winning entry “Zitti e buoni” debuted at #17, the highest charting Eurovision winner since Måns Zelmerlöw’s “Heroes” in 2015. This week, the band have gone one better with a second song appearing in the chart on the power of hype alone!
“I Wanna Be Your Slave”, one of the most popular songs in English from their recent album “Teatro d’Ira – Vol.1”, has jumped up to #24 in the official UK chart, next to “Zitti e buoni” which drops to #25. The only other Eurovision entry in the top 100 is Daði og Gagnamagnið’s “10 Years”, dropping from #43 to #81.
This makes the band the first Eurovision winning act to have achieved a top 100 in the UK with two songs since “Rainmaker” achieved the feat for Emmelie de Forest in 2014, and the first to see both tracks enter the top 40 since the last British winners Katrina and the Waves.
The band’s album also continues to climb in the British album chart, now sitting at #49 after a climb of 22 places.
Where will Måneskin go from here in the British charts? We hope it’s only up from here for the band!
