Spotify: “Snap” has surpassed Måneskin’s “Zitti e Buoni”, becoming the 2nd most-streamed Eurovision song of all times!

We have already talked about the fascinating story of Rosa Linn’s “Snap”, which despite its mediocre success in ESC, is doing great on the streaming platforms.

As of today, “Snap” is not only the most popular Eurovision 2022 song on Spotify, but has also managed to become the 2nd most streamed Eurovision song, surpassing “Zitti e Buoni” by Måneskin.

“Snap” has managed to muster 358 million streams, a few streams more than the ESC 2021’s winning song, and the former’s run doesn’t seem to be stopping there. The only question that remains, is whether Rosa Linn will be able to break Duncan Laurence’s record and surpass the 849 million streams of “Arcade” and become the most streamed Eurovision song of all time!

Below you can watch the new music video of “Snap”, that was released a few time ago:

Spotify: Snap has surpassed Alexander Rybak’s Fairytale, becoming the 3rd most-streamed Eurovision song of all times!

We have already talked about the fascinating story of Rosa Linn’s Snap, which despite its mediocre success in ESC, is doing great on the streaming platforms. As of today, Snap is not only the most popular Eurovision 2022 song on Spotify, but has also managed to become the 3rd most streamed song of ESC, surpassing Alexander Rybak’s Fairytale. 

Snap has managed to muster 218 million streams, a few streams more than the ESC 2009’s winning song, and the former’s run doesn’t seem to be stopping there. The table below illustrates the dynamics of the song, which is now in the 18th position of the Global Spotify Chart, being on said Chart for more than 87 days.

How far do you think Rosa Linn’s Snap can go? Will it manage to become the most-streamed Eurovision song of all times? 

Armenia: Listen to the Italian version of “Snap” by Rosa Linn!

A few hours ago, the representative of Armenia in Eurovision 2022, Rosa Linn, realeased a new version of her worldwide hit song “Snap”.

The Armenian entry for Eurovision 2022 ended up in 20th place on the Grand Final, but rose to fame some time later thanks to its success on TikTok and is now one of the most streamed Eurovision songs of all time!

After releasing a slow and high pitch version, this time Rosa Linn released a version of her song in a whole new language! For this version she collaborates with Alfa, an Italian singer, who sings along with her, parts of her song in Italian.

Listen to the Italian version of the song “Snap” by Rosa Linn and Alfa:

“Snap” recently broke a new record of streams by becoming the 6th most streamed Eurovision song of all time leaving Loreen and “Euphoria” behind in 7th place and is only a few million streams away from surpassing the legendary “Waterloo” by ABBA.

Spotify: Snap surpassed Måns Zelmerlöw’s Heroes, continuing its wild run!

We have already reported the fascinating story of Rosa Linn’s Snap, which despite its mediocre success in ESC, is doing great on the streaming platforms. For two days now, Snap is not only the most popular Eurovision 2022 song on Spotify, but has also managed to become the 7th most streamed song of the Contest, surpassing Måns Zelmerlöw’s Heroes.

Today, Snap has managed to muster 147 million streams, 4,5 million more than the ESC 2015’s winning song, and the former’s run doesn’t seem to be stopping there. The table below illustrates the dynamics of the song, which is now in the 18th position of the Global Spotify Chart, being on said Chart for more than 60 days.

Therefore, and despite the admittedly small loss of momentum on the platform (38,607 less streams compared to the previous week), it is almost certain that the Armenia’s song in ESC 2022, is threatening more popular Eurovision songs on Spotify.

And while the two most popular Eurovision songs (Arcade and Zitti e buoni) are considered a rather unattainable goal, the same cannot be said for Soldi, which has 207 million streams, 60 million more than Snap. By rough calculations, and provided that Rosa Linn’s song won’t lose much of its momentum, Snap is likely to surpass Soldi and become the 3rd most popular Eurovision song within the next two months.

Billboard Hot 100

Two weeks ago Snap managed to be placed in the 97th position on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming only the second Eurovision song in the 21st century (after Arcade) to do so. Unfortunately for Rosa Linn, her song’s run on the Hot 100 didn’t last for more than a week. The entrance into Hot 100, as well as its ranking, is dependent on the number of streams through streaming platforms, sales, and airplay in the US.

Worldwide iTunes Song Chart

Despite maintaining momentum on Spotify, Snap appears to be losing ground on iTunes. And while a week ago the song had reached the 7th position on the Worldwide iTunes Song Charts, today it’s ranked 13th, having a slightly downward trend.

The dynamics of TikTok

Snap’s success seems to be related to the even greater singer’s success on TikTok. Prior to the Competition, Rosa Linn had, on her personal TikTok account, 5k followers and 85k likes. Today, her followers amount to 555k and her likes to 9.5 million!

It is not the first time that TikTok has been used as a springboard by Eurovision artists. The most typical example, perhaps, is Duncan Laurence’s “Arcade”, the winning song of ESC 2019, which, after its delayed success on TikTok, has today exceeded 900 mil. streams, becoming the most successful Eurovision song on Spotify.

Thus, despite the (justified) reactions expressed this year by fans, journalists and correspondents of the ESC, the strategic partnership between the EBU and TikTok (with the latter taking on the role of “Official Entertainment Partner” for Eurovision 2022) does not appear to be an one-off collaboration.

How far do you think Rosa Linn’s Snap can go? Will it manage to overtake Soldi on Spotify or will it run out of gas somewhere along the way?

Azerbaijan: Nadir Rustamli wants to represent his country once again!

Nadir Rustamli, the singer who represented Azerbaijan in Eurovision Song Contest 2022, said that he wants to return to the contest.

The latest representative of Azerbaijan in Eurovision has stated in his personal social media that he would like to represent his country again in the future. These are his words:

” My followers started a social media campaign for a new participation in the contest. I didn’t want to represent my country right away the following year. But if my fans want it and the invitation comes through, I would like to participate again because I don’t want to fail my audience and my listeners”.

Nadir Rustamli represented Azerbaijan in Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin with the song “Fade to Black” and ended up in 16th place in the Grand Final with a total of 106 points. On the same time he is the first artist to qualify for the Grand Final while getting zero points from televote in the semi-final.

Spain: TVE’s participation in the Eurovision cost 680.000 Euros

After many years, Spain took the 3rd place in the Eurovision song contest 2022 with Chanel and “SloMo”. Since 1995, which was one of the best results for the country, Spain has taken a lot of low positions, but not anymore. Chanel managed to bring Spain back to the foreground. The Spanish broadcaster TVE published the cost of this year’s participation which stands at 600.000€.

The budget of Spanish public television for the Eurovision song contest was significantly increased compared to last year. TVE spent almost 200,000 Euros more, compared to its participation in Eurovision 2021.
Specifically, TVE spent 680,000 Euros in total. Of these 302,150 Euros was the participation fee, the rest were the other expenses like the hotel, tickets, payments and for the stage performance.

Eurovision 2022: Watch the Live-on-Tape performance of Belgium!

The live-on-tape of the countries that participated in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest in May in Turin will be shown this year through the official Eurovision channel on YouTube.

From June 14 to 23, Eurofans will have the opportunity to watch the live-on-tape appearances of about thirty of the forty countries that took part in this year’s contest.

Today, it is the turn of another country of the second semi-final.
