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?

Rosa Linn enters Top 10 of Worldwide Itunes Chart

Rosa Linn continues her success beyond her Eurovision participation.  The song Snap has entered the charts in more than 30 different countries, even outside of Europe.  Moreover, Snap reached the top 10 in the Austrian, Dutch, Swiss, Irish, Swedish and Norwegian charts.  The single was even number 1 in Belgium and in the UK indie charts.

Snap has got more than 100 million Streams on Spotify, a record that only 10 Eurovision songs have so far.  After surpassing the Italian song “Brividi”, Snap became the most streamed song from the Eurovision Song Contest 2022!

Last month Snap achieved another milestone once again when it entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States.  This marks the second Eurovision entry in the 21st century and the 12th Eurovision song that have gone this far.  However, the good news for Rosa Linn have not stopped there.

Today Snap entered the Top 10 of the Worldwide iTunes Song Charts, going up five places since last week:

Rosa Linn represented Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 where she finished in 20th place.  However, as the news show her final result did not have a negative impact on her career.  On the opposite, her participation in Turin gave her enough exposure to further launch her career.

Rosa Linn signed a record deal with Columbia Records, one of the biggest music labels in the world that also features world stars like Adele, BTS or Harry Styles.

We will be looking forward to follow Rosa Linn successful career!

We can say that it’s something everyone expected and “Snap”, with more than 2 million streams daily, is now the most streamed song of Eurovision Song Contest 2022 on Spotify, surpassing 110 million streams.

“Snap” by Rosa Linn, didn’t manage to be high in the scoreboard on the Grand Final, but it managed to travel and get streams throughout the whole world, having a place in the charts of more than 40 countries (including the USA and the United Kingdom). 110 million streams and counting, Armenia’s song for this year’s contest is now the song with the most streams from Eurovision 2022 and the ninth most streamed song in the contest’s history!

The TikTok’s dynamics

The above 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 509k and her likes to 9 mil.

Just a “snap” away from the eighth place of every song in the contest!

It’s just a matter of time before “Snap” is on the eighth place of the list with the most streamed songs of the contest, as “Think About Things”, the song that would represent Iceland in the cancelled 2020 contest, has 119 million streams, around 9 million more streams than “Snap”

Congratulation to Rosa Linn for her huge commercial success!

Armenia: Rosa Linn wants to represent the country next year again!

The 22-year-old singer Rosa Linn is conquering the charts all over the world with her Eurovision viral hit ”SNAP”. Almost three months ago she represented Armenia with that song and unfortunately placed 20th, earning only 61 points, however it is the country’s best result since 2018. A couple of days after the final, it went viral on TikTok and rapidly kept gaining popularity ever since. The song is charting in Latin America and the US, as well as in countries in Africa.

Recently she has spoken to BBC and has said:

I’m from Vanadzor, in Armenia, which you probably don’t know where it is in the world, and I’m so, so happy. As a child I’d dream about this.

Once we hit the one million streams a day I was like ‘Oh My God’, I’m checking my numbers on Spotify every day and I see them grow and I just can’t believe it.

She also has stated that she would love to come back next year for Armenia!

Rosa Linn said she would “love to” represent Armenia next year.

“I really loved everything at Eurovision. I loved it before as a fan, but when you experience it, it’s magical.”
