In her song “SNAP,” she says her heart’s been on fire “since June 22nd,” the day she lost the love of her life. 

But now fans of Rosa Linn have a new date on their minds — October 7 — the day she released the gorgeous and engrossing new music video for her Eurovision hit.

In the original music video, released in the months before the contest, we saw a frail girl in a flying house. Now that girl has grown into a smouldering woman who feels every note and trauma more deeply. 

Rosa Linn’s new SNAP music video

Reflecting her recent good fortune — signing with Columbia Records, being invited to open for Ed Sheeran in North America, going viral globally on TikTok and charting in the United States — our girl now looks extra expensive. From the large gold earrings to the gorgeous beige pantsuit, she’s growing and glowing and keeping that slay alive.

The re-imagined video conveys her emotional turmoil well. Seated in the backseat of a vintage car, she travels through an endless expanse of arid terrain, reminiscent of parts of Arizona and California. The car lacks a driver, as if Rosa Linn, trapped in her emotions, is operating on auto pilot. She pounds on the seat, a more violent expression than we saw in the original video. Her heart isn’t just on fire — it’s full-on exploding.

As the video progresses, the boundary between dreaming and reality seems to blur. We see her step out of the car, dancing with people who may or may not be memories of lovers past, and a screen shows vistas from all over the world, including her beautiful homeland Armenia. 

Like so many members of the Lonely Hearts Club, Rosa Linn takes refuge in a diner (which, to this author, looks strikingly similar to the one in Episode 5 of the Netflix series The Sandman, where John settles to watch people and cause trouble). After a tipple Rosa Linn drives into the darkness, unable to exorcise the memory of her ex.

God I love this song so much. What a masterpiece.

Almost 7 months after its release, this song has run its course and it’s time for a new tune. It’s totally pointless to invest in a new clip, and rightfully so, the song has plummeted in the UK charts upon the new clip’s release.

The UK chart likes to keep fresh music and songs get put on Accelerated Chart Rate after 10 weeks if sales have declined. The only radio station that played SNAP was BBC Radio 2 and they didn’t do it for long because she doesn’t have a fanbase and she isn’t a recognised artist here. Her next single with Duncan could have been played upon its release if she collaborated with someone more well known but I doubt it will because neither of them are known here. The UK radio doesn’t like TikTok songs.

so basically they wanted to shoot a music video for the US audience. That’s the point of the new clip here.

At least for now, idk, I’ll never dismiss the possibility of her springing up again in 5-10 years with another song

She should focus on that rather than a new music video for a song that already has one.

Why can’t she do both? She also has a duet coming out with Duncan. Also, I think her management wants to move her brand away from Eurovision which explains the new music video.

If her management team want her brand away from Eurovision it might not be a good idea to do another music video on her Eurovision song while releasing a new song with another Eurovision personality

They are marketing her new single as a duet with Duncan Laurence the winner of 2019 Eurovision. They have to because Arcade is a TikTok song and he hasn’t had any other big hits outside Netherlands and most people who know Arcade don’t know him as an artist. I’m just glad it’s not with Ed Sheeran he likes to collab with everyone he meets.

Feels too Americanized and the video doesn’t fit the vibe. The original was better :/

Both videos remind me of Alanis Morissette, the Ironic video. The hat and the car ride.

her success makes me so happy but she can’t ride SNAP’s wave forever. everyone wants to hear what else she can do besides snapping 1,2

she’s releasing her next single “would do it again” in a few weeks. snap is already being pulled from playlists so they’re getting the next rollout ready.

What a huge downgrade from the previous MV.

The original video was her stuck in her house writing breakup songs and she wanted to get away so she made her house fly and eventually she was smiling and said “don’t need you anymore”. The new video is being frustrated and not getting over her breakup which doesn’t fit the song.

These labels are milking her so hard. Giving her cheap a$$ looking music video that doesn’t even fit the song. The original video was creative at least. When Snap dies out they will dump her like anyone else.

They actually seem to be investing in her since they got her an opening slot for part of Ed Sheeran’s summer 2023 tour. There’s a long time between now and then for her to show if she’s got potential beyond Snap.

Nothing wrong with the original video just feels like another way for her label to Americanise her and make money
