Reese Witherspoon recently used Rosa Linn‘s song “SNAP” in an Instagram Reel asking people to define “crawdad.” But evidently the Hollywood A-lister isn’t the only one loving Armenia’s Eurovision 2022 entry. In recent days “SNAP” has hit the Top 100 in the charts in Germany, the United Kingdom and Italy — an impressive feat that suggests Rosa Linn has the Eurovision song of the summer.
In the weeks after the contest, the Top 3 finishers — Kalush Orchestra, Sam Ryder and Chanel — were among the Eurovision 2022 acts experiencing the most success. But two months later — and buoyed by her success on TikTok — Rosa Linn has watched “SNAP” prove it has staying power.

The song is currently the only Eurovision 2022 entry in the Top 40 in Germany, coming in at #32.
In the U.K. only two songs from Eurovision 2022 can be found on the charts: Sam Ryder’s “SPACE MAN” at #56 and Rosa Linn’s “SNAP” at #67.
It’s a similar story in Italy, where the country’s own Eurovision entry remains in play. Mahmood & Blanco’s “Brividi” sits at #30. Just one other ESC 2022 song is on the list — Rosa Linn’s “SNAP” at # 83.
As our friends at EuroFestival News report, “SNAP” is only the seventh non-Italian Eurovision song to crack the charts there. Five of these won the song contest (with Conchita reaching #25 and Loreen hitting #27).
Besides Rosa Linn’s “Snap”, the only other non-winner to crack the Top 100 was The Ark’s “The Worrying Kind”, which hit #34 after placing 18th at Eurovision. Below you can see their peak position and how many weeks they lasted in the charts.
- The Worrying Kind ( The Ark – Sweden 2007, 18th place) – #34, 3 weeks in the ranking
- Euphoria ( Loreen – Sweden 2012, winner) – #27, 20 weeks in the standings
- Only Teardrops ( Emmelie de Forest – Denmark 2013, winner) – #81, 2 weeks in the ranking
- Rise Like a Phoenix ( Conchita Wurst – Austria 2014, winner) – #26, 2 weeks in the ranking
- Heroes ( Måns Zelmerlöw – Sweden 2015, winner) – #87, 4 weeks in the standings
- Stefania ( Kalush Orchestra – Ukraine 2022, winner) – #53, 1 week in the standings
- Snap ( Rosa Linn – Armenia 2022, 20th place) – #83, 1 week in the ranking (at the moment)
Whether you win Eurovision or place 20th like Rosa Linn did, the song contest is a platform to help get your music out there.
We’d call “SNAP” a sleeper hit, but Miss Rosa Linn is now wide awake!
Much of “SNAP”‘s success comes down to its use on TikTok, where it’s being used on clips about travel, pets and family. Its warmth and sense of nostalgia creates the perfect mood to reminisce over recent trips to waterfalls or gondola rides through Venice with your puppy.
At the time of writing, the “SNAP – High and Fast” sound had been used on 233,200 videos, while the original “SNAP” sound has been used 37,200 times.
Spotify recently added “SNAP” to its Today’s Top Hits playlist — the most-liked playlist across the entire platform. She joined the likes of Glass Animals with “Heat Wave” and Lady Gaga with “Hold My Hand.”
