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.”

‘Snap’ is the song I keep listening over and over, I just love her and it keeps growing on me 2 months after the contest.

I mean, it’s not my sort of music at all…and I didn’t rank it highly this year, but all the best to Rosa Linn and it is always good to see a Eurovision song experience success away from the content.

I am usually thrilled whenever ESC song achieves success but not with this one. As someone said – ‘wannabe American’ that is desperately trying to be something she is not – a Valley girl. Its a bit cringe to be honest

the new zealand chart is a “bubbling under” one, described in the methodology as “the fastest-moving songs that haven’t made it to the main top 40 yet”. i hope to see her rosa linn in the main chart soon !

It is Americanized song in every way possible: lyrics, melody and even the style of singing/pronunciation. This is why it is doing well. It has nothing to do with Armenia and we call these types of acts ‘wannabe American’.

That’s nonsense. Pop doesn’t belong to anyone. I don’t want to live in a world where acts are just allowed to do a stereotypical performance with traditional instruments, though I like those songs. But no country or act should be punished for singing a pop song.

Of course it is not only about the song being pop, or in English. It’s the whole singing style, clothes she wears, expressions she uses, pronunciation that just screams ‘(wannabe) American’. Even her stage name was chosen with the idea to pass as American

Rosa Linn is releasing the music she wants to on her own terms and seeing success for it. Could we perhaps support her instead of this race to diminish that happens every single time a song breaks through beyond the bubble?

It has nothing to do with Armenia? Let’s see the writer, composer and the singer is Armenian so I’d say it has everything to do with Armenia lol

I guess you’re right because even her stage name is americanised. I don’t really see the problem with these types of acts, though.

Probably the most radio friendly song of the year, no wonder it does very well. But I don’t get why people are surprised that It didn’t do well, Eurovision is about performance and impact and snap got lost between so many entries. Glad it does well now

Right, because Ukraine’s entry was all about the performance and the impact it had and had nothing to do with the country it was from.

The last time I remember a non-winner becoming so big after the contest was Gina G. I wish a similar success for Rosa Linn. Not just for her but it might also boost Armenia’s chances of victory in the near future, who knows?

Eleni Foureira’s Fuego was algo big, I didn’t remember it when I was writing the previous comment. My bad.

Soldi was pretty big post-Eurovision for a few months which made me feel bad for Duncan Lawrence but thankfully his song suddenly became viral on Tiktok and the rest is history.

There’s plenty of songs from Eurovision & national selections that could become popular and even hits worldwide, but they’d need more exposure and promotion.

These news are a good thing for Eurovision’s success and to all artists who want to get themselves into the spotlight.

Eurovision and TikTok are a match made in heaven. I think we can expect many past and future ESC songs becoming worldwide hits thanks to TikTok. US music lobbys have no longer a monopoly on who gets to become popular

We saw this happening with Arcade and Beggin’ last year. Definitely, I can see this happening again and more often.
I’m actually thrilled, because many songs deserved a better recognition back in the day and TikTok is giving them a new life and making them shine no matter the year they were released 🙂

Maybe the reception on Tiktok for ESC entries should be taken into account besides public and jury votes since a lot of fans think it is so important now.

I so so so love this for her! She was criminally underrated in the finals and her song always had radio-hit potential. Congrats to Rosa Linn, hopefully she’ll have some follow-up hits.

while it was always clear that it was the song with the biggest tiktok potential from this edition, i would’ve never expected it to actually blow up. i can only hope that its momentum extends to the americas and to asia while it keeps growing in europe. smashing 1, 2!

A successful year for Armenia, wine JESC and the Eurovision song getting worldwide recognition albeit ending up 20th!

Armenia’s momentum of success after their victory in the last jesc. It proves again that the final ranking in Eurovision doesn’t really reflect the quality of the acts, it doesn’t systematically and unfortunately award the good songs and the song with potential and I like to see Armenia proving it in the best way.

All the Esc producers, all the eurofans and all the Eurovision voters look only at the bookies ranking and only that, it’s the Esc Bible unfortunately, so forcefully the D-day some really good acts who are not “loved” by our so dear bookies are totally unfairly forgotten which is a shame…

Or even songs from national finals; for example, Fantasy Island which became a hit for Tight Fit.

great for her she’s such a humble and sweet person and it makes me so happy to see her pop off. just shows that one doesn’t have to win esc to succeed afterwards.

Well done to Armenia and Rosa Linn! I liked the song since I first listened to it, it’s super catchy, cute, sweet, nice melody and rhythm. Her voice fits the song and overall it’s a very nice song I am still listening to 2 months after ESC. 20th place in the contest? Don’t know if it was worth it or not but to be honest it did not stand out from the rest. Perhaps a different staging concept, a simpler one would fit better and let Rosa Linn showcase her talent and voice.

I think sadly Rosa may have had a lower finishing position, or maybe not even qualified at all, were it not for the staging or having the last spot in the semi-final.

I agree that the staging was actually beneficial, but I doubt with as good as she is vocally and how likable the song is that she was ever at risk of NQ. It’s not a standout song by any means so I’m unsure what staging would’ve worked better, yet that does make it perfect background music for Tiktoks. It’s also well suited to summertime so we might have a mini Arcade on our hands. Congrats to Rosa Linn!

Agree, was never at risk of NQ. I wonder though if such an elaborate staging as this would have seen, for example, North Macedonia through.
