Macklemore and Ryan Lewis this week have the honour to have two songs in the top ten simultaneously as "Thrift Shop" is at #4, while
Inside the top 20, it's a new peak for Ellie Goulding's "Lights" at #11, up from #17, and Taylor Swift's "I knew you were trouble" at #12, up from #15.
The highest new entry belongs to legendary band Die Ärzte and their latest single "Waldspaziergang Mit Folgen" at #17. It is the fourth single taken from their "Auch" album and the fourth to penetrate the top 20. This makes Die Ärzte's career since 2003 relatively steady with only "Himmelblauperfektbreit" performing worse with a peak of #26.
At #18 The Lumineers finally make it in the top 20 with their global hit and debut single "Ho Hey", up from #22.
Further down the countdown, local newcomer Leslie Clio scores her biggest hit as "I couldn't care less", her second single, moves 16 places and peaks at #25. Bruno Mars' "When I was your man" is this week up three to #26, while Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding enter the top 30 at #28 with "I need your love", an increase from #42. It's the third top 30 single of Calvin as a lead artist.
This week also sees US rapper Wax on the way of having a major hit in Germany as his "Rosanna" climbs 25 places and enters the top 50 at #32. With these lyrics it's destined to be a smash...
At #38 Lena is following the #2 peak of previous single "Stardust" with the somewhat underwhelming new entry of "Neon (Lonely People)" - the second single from Lena's current album.
Finally, dance project Italobrothers is having its second single in the charts as "This Is Nightlife" debuts at #41. It comes after "My Life Is a Party" peaked at #43 last year. The new song is based on "Ecuador", the hit of Sash! from 1997, which then reached #7.

The Album Chart
After David Bowie finally had his first number one in Germany's LP chart last week, it's time for Justin Timberlake to follow suit with the much anticipated "The 20/20 Experience". The third solo album of the supertalent beats thus the #11 peak of "Justified" and the #3 one of "FutureSex/LoveSounds".
Schlager star and granny favourite Semino Rossi debuts this week at #2 with "Symphonie des Lebens". Rossi has already has a #1 and #2 albums, though the curious fact is that the latest is produced by the one and only Dieter Bohlen. The schlager influx continues at #3 where duo Fantasy have their best performing album ever with "Endstation Sehnsucht". Some quality this week can be found at #8 where French Woodkid debuts with his first album "The Golden Age".
