Sometimes songs take a while. This applies, for example, to snap by Rosa Linn. She participated in the Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Armenia and only 9 weeks after her participation, the success in the Top 40 follows. The Depth, Kalush Orchestra and Space Man is snap the fourth issue of this year’s festival to make it onto the list. The song by the 22-year-old singer owes its success to TikTok where snap has been popular for weeks. This week we add Armenia as a new nationality in the Top 40 because never before was an act from that country in the list. So now via Rosa Linn at number 37.
23 (–) CALM DOWN- Rema
A sultry guitar, a clicking rhythm and a tune with many repetitions that is also pleasant to the ear. There is no guarantee or formula for a summer hit, but these are the elements that help. Rema makes good use of it in Calm Down. Last week it was already the Alarm Disc on Qmusic and now the 22-year-old singer from Nigeria is making his debut in the Top 40. Calm Down is, at number 23, the highest new.
