As will.i.am & Britney Spears' megahit "Scream & Shout" refuses to lose any steam, it stands for a ninth consecutive week on top of the German singles chart. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" is this week at #2, inching up a position from #3. At the same time UK singer Passenger has his first top three single with "Let Her Go", up from #5. Whether Germany would be the next country where he will be number one only the next weeks will tell.
After storming the global
charts, and especially USA where he is at #1 for a fourth week,
sensation Baauer and his "Harlem Shake" enters the German countdown this
week at #10. Needless to say, this is the first single of the US bass
music producer in the chart.
Pulcino Pio and the shamefully
catchy "Das kleine Küken piept" peaks in its third week on the list at
#15, up from #20, while Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" is up
one notch to #17.
Veteran German rock band Silly, founded in
eastern Germany in the GDR era and reformed in 2005, makes a rare
appearance in the German singles chart with "Deine Stärken" at #21.
down the chart, on the rise this week are Follow Your Instinct and "My
City" at #24, up from #34, The Lumineers and the great "Ho Hey" at #26,
up from #35, as well as Bruno Mars' "When I Was Your Man", the follow-up
to "Locked Out Of Heaven", at #32, up from #36.
Hurts, whose "Wonderful Life" and "Stay" reached the top three in
Germany a couple of years ago, are back with their second album and this
week the pilot single "Miracle" debuts at #25 - a somewhat
disappointing new entry for Theo and Adam.
Macklemore & Ryan
Lewis' huge success with "Thrift Shop" has triggered the interest in
their earlier singles as "Can't Hold Us" is moving up the charts and
this week can be found at #39, an increase by ten positions.
Del Rey continues to release singles from her "Born To Die" album and
"Dark Paradise" this week enters at #45, becoming her sixth top 50
single in the country.
At the low end of the top 50 American
rapper Theophilus London is enjoying his first ever success in Germany
as "Wine & Chocolates" climbs four to #46. At #50 German rappers
Prinz Pi and Casper bring their collaboration "100x" fresh to the chart.
And the other new entries this week:
58. Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding - I Need Your Love
66. Dú Maroc feat. Jonesmann - One Touch
74. Sofi de la Torre - Faster
86. Marie Meimberg - Ich glaube
91. Wiz Khalifa feat. Sam Curtis - No Sleep
The Album Chart
album chart continues to be ruled by Heino and his "Mit freundlichen
Grüssen". Dido's newest release, "Girl Who Got Away", becomes her fourth
album to chart inside the top 3 as it enters at #2 this week. A position
behind the British singer, Steven Wilson, the founder of Porcupine
Tree, has registered his first ever solo top 10 album with "The Raven
That Refused To Sing And Other Stories"
