"Toy" (Hebrew transliteration: טוי) is a song recorded by Israeli singer Netta, and Israel's submission in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. The track was written by Doron Medalie and Stav Beger, and produced by the latter.[1][2] The song was released on 11 March 2018 along with its official music video clip, which was directed by Keren Hochma. The song was leaked online a day before the official release.[3]

The song won the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, with 529 points. It marks Israel's fourth Eurovision win along with 1978, 1979 and 1998.[4] The song reached the top of the charts in Israel.[5]

The song became the most viewed video on Eurovision Song Contest's YouTube channel on 27 May 2018 and is the third most viewed song from Eurovision, after Occidentali's Karma and Grande Amore (both entries from Italy, 2017 and 2015)[6][7]

Lyrics

The song's lyrics are mostly in English, with the exception of the Hebrew phrase אני לא בובה‎ (ani lo buba, "I am not a doll"), and the slang word סטפה‎ (stefa, meaning a pile of banknotes).[8] The Japanese word baka (バカ "stupid") is also used extensively and the Pokémon character Pikachu is used once.
