ANSWERING ALL YOUR MÅNESKIN QUESTIONS

You've got Måneskin questions; we've got answers. First off, and most pressingly: The Italian rock conquerors will be on David Massey's Arista in the U.S. David is so thrilled he can barely finish his insalata di polpo e patate (paired exquisitely with a 2008 Casa d’Ambra Ischia Bianco).

Secondly, the Eurovision winners' cover of Frankie Valli's "Beggin'" remains steadfastly at #1 on Spotify's global chart (and Top 5 U.S.) and Top 10 on Apple Music's global chart. (You may recall Primary Wave's splashy deal for the Valli/Four Seasons catalog not so long ago, which seemed like a canny move at the time and now looks positively visionary.) The group's own "I Wanna Be Your Slave" is trending Top 10 on the Spot's global rundown.

Thirdly, the accent is on the first syllable. If you think Måneskin is an odd name for a band from Rome, you're not wrong; their moniker is the Danish word for "moonlight." You may thank bassist Victoria De Angelis' Danish heritage. The quartet, fronted by the charismatic Damiano David, won the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest with the blistering Italian number "Zitti e buoni."

Lastly, the diacritical mark over the "a" in the band's name is called a ring, and Måneskin now joins GIVĒON in the pantheon of artists requiring the most formatting. Thanks, guys!
