Iceland’s brand of Eurovision Mathematics may be trigonometry, but for Armenia it’s addition, as Rosa Linn has been included on part of British pop star Ed Sheeran’s 2023 Mathematics Tour and her Eurovision 2022 entry “Snap” continues its climb up the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
For a fifth week, Armenia’s entry for Eurovision 2022, Rosa Linn’s “Snap,” is still hanging on inside the Billboard Hot 100.
Coming into the United States’ main singles chart at Number 97 and peaking three weeks later at Number 93, before sliding back down to Number 99, “Snap” hit a new high this week at Number 90.
“Snap” is the first Eurovision single to hit the Billboard Hot 100 since Duncan Laurence’s Eurovision 2019 winner for the Netherlands, “Arcade,” reached Number 30 during the summer of 2021. The last Eurovision entry prior to “Arcade” to land on the chart was Gina G’s “Ooh Aah… Just a Little Bit,” which reached Number 12 in 1997 after making 8th place for the United Kingdom at Eurovision 1996.

In addition to Linn’s steady ascent up the Billboard Hot 100, English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran announced his Mathematics North American 2023 Tour, with Linn set to be included on five dates.

Linn’s ascent up the Billboard Hot 100 is unlikely to stop anytime soon as her song also broke another Spotify record. “Snap” is now the 5th most played Eurovision entry on Spotify after surpassing ABBA’s Eurovision 1974 winning entry “Waterloo.”
