German Chart Comments - Issue Date 15.03

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.

Further 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.

British duo 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.

Lana 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

The 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"
