The nominees for the 2021 MTV EMAs are finally out and Måneskin are nominated for “Best Group” and “Best Rock”. This is the first time that an Italian artist is nominated in three categories (including “Best Italian Act”) and the first ever for an Italian band to be nominated “Best Group” and “Best Rock”.
The MTV EMAs 2021 will take place in Hungary on November 14th, 2021.
With over 3.4 billion streams overall and more than 43 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Victoria, Damiano, Thomas and Ethan ranked #24 on Spotify’s Global Chart with “MAMMAMIA”, the new single released on October 8 and followed by a videoclip: it’s the highest debut amongst all the new Friday releases and the band’s highest one so far.
With their raw, energetic and distorted sound, Måneskin are taking rock’n’roll back to the forefront of the world’s charts, perfectly mixing it with contemporary tastes. Twenty-year-old Victoria (bassist), Damiano (vocalist), Thomas (guitarist) and Ethan (drummer) started out as buskers performing in the streets of Rome in 2015 and, just a few years later, conquered the world, becoming one of the most popular rock bands of the new generation. They got currently over 3.4 billion streams overall and more than 43 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Following the great success gained by the album “Il ballo della vita” (which was released on October 26, 2018), the band went on a long tour across Europe and performed at the best music clubs and festivals in Italy, and then, on October 30, 2020, released their new single “VENT’ANNI”. Måneskin won the 71st Sanremo Music Festival with their song “ZITTI E BUONI”, and then conquered the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, winning first place and enjoying remarkable success worldwide, earning in just a few weeks several gold and platinum records in more than 15 countries. Their second album “Teatro d’ira – Vol. I” was released on March 19, 2021 and will be followed by sold-out tours in the major European cities and at sports arenas across Italy that will kick off in 2022, as well as an event concert at the Circo Massimo in Rome on July 2022. On July 15, 2021 the video for “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” premiered worldwide on YouTube, topping 6.7 million streams in just 24 hours, becoming a hit song in 67 countries and climbing to #20 on the global top artists chart. The song also vaunts a stunning version in collaboration with rock legend Iggy Pop, released on August 6, 2021. Måneskin have broken a number of unprecedented records, peaking to #1 on the Spotify Global Top 50 Chart with “Beggin’” that, together with “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE”, cracked the UK Singles Chart – both songs in Top 10 – thus becoming the first Italian band in the history of music to crack the UK Top Ten Chart with two singles at the same time. On September 25, 2021 Måneskin performed as headliner with Ed Sheeran and Doja Cat at the “Global Citizen Live 2021” in Paris. On October 8, 2021 they released their new single “MAMMAMIA”, that debuts at #24 on Spotify’s Global Chart, the highest debut amongst all the new Friday releases and the band’s highest one so far.
