"Beggin'" was just a modest hit for The Four Seasons, reaching #16 in the US when it was released in 1967, but it made a global impact when it was reworked by various outfits.
The song got some attention in the UK as a Northern Soul standby, and in 1968 it was covered by the British group Timebox, who took it to #38 in their country. The song was revived in 2007 by the French DJ Pilooski, who made a remix that went to #32 in the UK. Then in 2008, a Norwegian group called Madcon reworked the song
into a worldwide smash that landed at the top of the charts in many European countries, including France, Belgium, and their native Norway. This version also reached #5 in the UK and #79 in the US.
When the Italian band Måneskin covered it in 2017, it was a minor hit in their home country, but in 2021 Måneskin won the Eurovision Song Contest, which drew lots of interest in their back catalog and sent their version of "Beggin'" up the charts around the world. It reached #6 in the UK and #13 in the US.
