Mustii will represent Belgium at Eurovision 2024 with the song "Before the Party's Over." The entry has just been released along with a music video

Belgium was the very first country to announce its representative for Eurovision 2024, which will be held in Malmö in May. Mustii was the chosen act by Belgian broadcaster RTBF, and he has now released his song for the upcoming music contest.

The song is titled "Before the Party's Over," and along with the song the Belgian singer also released the music video for it:

A curious fact about this song is that, besides Mustii's vocals, it features the voices from fans all over the world. Back in January, Mustii had asked the fans to join him for the part "I got a soul on fire, I'm gonna make moves tonight. I got a soul on fire. I'm gonna raise roofs tonight."

"Before the Party's Over" is meant to reflect Mustii himself as when he was announced as Belgium's representative, he wanted it to focus on such:

– My idea is to go to the Eurovision Song Contest with my own DNA. I don’t want to lie, I want to be sincere and authentic. I don’t want to create a fake character.


Thomas Mustin, or simply Mustii, is a 33-year-old Belgian singer and actor who has been in the entertainment industry since 2012.

Even though he's set to represent Belgium at Eurovision 2024, his first steps in the arts industry happened on a French TV show, "À tort ou à raison," as well as in the theater. Since then, he's starred in multiple shows and movies. It was in 2014 when he released his first musical effort, "The Golden Age," which became a hit in the country. Many singles and a lot of recognition followed (including several awards), as well as two studio albums: "21st Century Boy" and "It's Happening Now."

In addition to Eurovision, 2024 will mark Mustii's return to Drag Race Belgique where he'll now be a permanent judge on the show.
