"Moscow Never Sleeps" (Russian: Москва никогда не спит) is a song recorded by Russian electronic musician DJ Smash. It was released in October 2007 as a single and it reached the number one on the Moscow Airplay Chart in May 2008.

In 2008, a new version of the hit was recorded in collaboration with Timati. The song was performed on the Muz-TV Awards, together with Thirty Seconds to Mars, Morandi, Jennifer Lopez and stars of the Russian pop scene.

A reworked version of this song, with the alternative refrain "Russia Never Sleeps", accompanied the Russian bid presentation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup[1].


The song is sung in both English and Russian (Я люблю тебя, Москва, meaning "I love you, Moscow"). It is an ode to the titular city of Moscow.
