Mustii reveals « Before The Party’s Over », Belgium’s Eurovision entry

Belgium’s Eurovision Song Contest 2024 participant, Mustii, has unveiled the vibrant and collaborative music video for his entry, ‘Before the Party’s Over,’ a song that transcends borders. The release not only marks a significant moment for the artist but also emphasizes the Eurovision Song Contest’s enduring theme of unity through music. The song immediately climbed to 7th place in the bookmakers’ predictions.

The song, a collaboration with Pierre Dumoulin and Ben Leclercq, stands out for its unique approach. More than a thousand anonymous voices responded to an online call, coming together to create the powerful final chorus. The collaborative effort beautifully encapsulates the Eurovision ethos – ‘United by Music.’

Mustii, also known as actor and singer Thomas Mustin, shared the inspiration behind the song, drawing from Chekhov’s Three Sisters to articulate its essence. “I wanted this song to be an optimistic, euphoric surge. A gradual journey from the intimate to the final outburst (in both form and content),” he explained. The lyrics encourage living life to the fullest, embracing intensity, experimentation, and breaking free from comfort zones. Mustii poetically draws parallels between a night of revelry and the journey of life, emphasizing the importance of fully embracing oneself before the inevitable end.
