Italy’s Måneskin enter UK Top 10

Rome band cracks UK Top 10 with I Wanna Be Your Slave.

Italy's Måneskin, fresh from Eurovision victory, has entered the top 10 of the UK singles charts.

The glam-rockers from Rome climbed to number seven on Friday with I Wanna Be Your Slave, the follow-up single to their Eurovision-winning song Zitti e Buoni.

The new track has become the biggest hit by a Eurovision-winning act for nine years, according to the BBC, after Sweden's Loreen reached number three with Euphoria in 2012.

Zitti e Buoni, whose lyrics are in Italian, peaked at number 17 in the UK charts.

The catchy track recently landed in the Top 10 on Spotify's global chart – another first for an Italian act – racking up over 100 million plays on the audio streaming platform.

Måneskin's breakthrough success in Britain comes after a feature article in The New York Times suggested the Roman band was on the cusp of global stardom.
