Still a slow period atop the German singles chart, where Jennifer Lopez's "On The Floor" clocks up a fifth week. Once again J.Lo. biggest challenger is Snoop Dogg and the David Guetta remix of "Sweat".
For a change, this week we have a powerful new entry straight in the top three. The song in question belongs to Jessie J, the extremely hot newcomer from UK. "Price Tag", her second single, has already made history in UK and is also climbing inside the USA top 100, thus unsurprisingly it lands at #3 in Germany. In comparison, Jessie J's pilot single "Do It Like A Dude" peaked at #41 several months ago.
Further in the top 10, we have another new entry, coming from LMFAO & Lauren Bennett & GoonRock, whose "Party Rock Anthem" launches directly at #7. The song has already been a smash in UK, but though it's not the worst out there, I'm still not getting the appeal.
Inside the top 10, we should also mention a new peak by Caro Emerald's extremely popular "A Night Like This" at #4 and the #11-#10 climb of Pitbull and his "Give Me Everything". The latter already has a video, so I guess only big things lie ahead of the single.
At #12 Aloe Blacc shoots back in the top 20 with his second single "Loving You Is Killing Me", which still has to rise in the top 10 to match the success of "I Need A Dollar".
It's now obligatory but yes, once again, Adele's "Set Fire To The Rain" goes up and enters the top 20 for the first time in its steady climb.
The third highest new entry comes from Groove Coverage at #22. The German act is responsible for dancefloor anthems from the early 2000s, such as "Moonlight Shadow", "God Is a Girl" and "Poison". Continuing the tradition "Angeline" is once again a cover, this time of "Lotusblume" by German band Die Flippers, but nevertheless it so reminds me of the great VIVA days, that all I can do is love it!
It's better late than never, but despite the success of O Zone and Edward Maya, Romanian singer Inna has never had a top 30 single in Germany. And she even had a top 10 hit in UK! Now all this changes, as "Sun Is Up" enters new at #26, beating by ten positions the #36 peak of "Amazing".
Enjoying a steady career after their Eurovision performance exactly a year ago, Norwegian band Madcon bring another single in the top 30. "Outrun The Sun" comes after "Glow" reached #4 and stood in the top 50 for ages, and "Freaky Like Me" peaked #9.
At #41 German punk band Broilers (a great name btw) finally makes it to the top 100 with its "Harter Weg". The band has been active since the mid-1990s, but this is the first time the commercial market smiles at it. Anyway, if you, like me, have been unacquainted with the Broilers, they are worth checking out...
Though I expected "Friends Turbo", the latest single of super band Scooter to soar quickly, it actually faded to #59 last week but this time rebounds 16 positions and peaks at #43. It still is the least successful single of H.P. and co. but at least enters the top 50. The song, which features in the soundtrack of #1 movie "New Kids Turbo", is based on Scooter's 1995 hit "Friends", which reached #3.
Between the 50-100 positions we have only one new entry, belonging to heartthrob Nick Carter, of Backstreet Boys fame. "Just One Kiss" is the third solo single of Nick to enter the top 100 after the 2002 "Help Me" peaked #18 and the 2003 "I Got You" flopped at #87.
The Album Chart
Five new albums enter the top ten this week, with veterans Beastie Boys leading the pack with " Hot Sauce Committee Part Two", which enters at #3. The guys have had only one number one album in Germany - "Hello Nasty" from 1998.
Despite being #1 in the singles chart, Jennifer Lopez fails to capture the same kind of magic in the LPs, where her "Love" album enters at #4. Nevertheless, apart from the misjudged "Brave", all albums of the latino star have entered the German top five so far, with "J.Lo" reaching the summit in 2001.
"Mir so nah", the third solo album of Cassandra Steen, comes new at #5, becoming her most successful in terms of peak positions.
A great news for fans of club music as ATB brings his eight album "Distant Earth" straight at #7, a position, which the DJ has never reached so far in his long career.
The last new entry in the top ten belongs to House MD, or as his friends call him Hugh Laurie, who has conquered the music scene with his blues albums "Let Them Talk", which comes in at #8.
Once again the top two positions remain unchanged, occupied by Adele and Herbert Groenemeyer, whose freshest new single can be heard via the link below.
