Going viral! Måneskin options in TikTok and Spotify summer season hits charts
They are the Italian rock band that won Eurovision 2021 with “Zitti e buoni”. But now Moonlight still have something to celebrate. Her single from 2017 “Beginning” was named one of the hits of summer 2021 by the social media platform Tick tock and music streaming site Spotify.
Moonlight’s “Beggin ‘” tops the TikTok summer charts
Måneskin originally released “Beggin ‘” in 2017 as one of the songs they performed during their competition on X Factor Italia. The song was a cover of the classic Northern Soul song first recorded by the Four Seasons in 1967. Måneskin recorded their own version with their signature attitude and performed it in the second week of their X Factor experience.
After Måneskin’s Eurovision win, her newfound fans discovered the group’s back catalog. “Beggin ‘” turned out to be a popular track used in TikTok videos, with TikTok’ers from around the world adding Damiano David’s distinctive growl to their clips.
TikTok has published a list of the top five songs used in video creation in the UK – with Måneskin’s “Beggin” conveniently taking first place.
The group is in good company. In second place is the legendary American singing group Destiny’s Child with their 1999 hit “Bills, Bills, Bills”, while in third place is Van McCoy’s 1975 disco classic “The Hustle”.
The top 5 are rounded off by two more recent releases, the fourth being the new single “Bad Habits” by British singer Ed Sheeran. In fifth place is the track “The Magic Bomb” by the Vietnamese producer Hoàng Read, who is best known on TikTok for accompanying the “Chopping Dance” and the question-and-answer meme.
