Eurovision’s Rosa Linn signs deal with Columbia Records
Records of Colombia signed the Eurovision star Rosa Linn (pictured), who represented Armenia at the 2022 World Song Contest. Linn joins a roster that includes global artists like BTS, Harry Styles, Lil Nas X and Adele, among many others.

The singer took to Instagram to show her gratitude for penning the deal: “Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could say this, but I’m officially a signed artist to Columbia Records. A label that is home to so many of my idols. My life has changed faster than I could have imagined. Thank you to all of you who supported a girl from a small town in the heart of Armenia, and thank you for loving and listen to ‘Snap’ I’m so happy this song connected us all and now I’m ready for the next chapter of our journey.
