Expectedly, Robin Thicke has his first ever number one in Germany this week with "Blurred Lines", which rises one to claim the summit from Daft Punk. "Get Lucky" is thus now at #2 after spending two weeks on top, while Capital Cities' "Safe And Sound" continues to stick at #3.

highest new entry comes just outside the top three, belonging to German
rapper Prince Kay One. Just as Kay One, the singer had a top ten hit,
supporting Bushido's "Fackeln im Wind"
from 2010, while as a lead musician "V.I.P." is easily Kay One's
biggest song to date. It comes with the support of The Product G&B,
who have completely disappeared after Santana's number one "Maria Maria"
Though it seemed that Psy's "Gentleman" would quickly
burn out, the song finds some internal strength and shoots this week
back in the top 20, to #12 from #25.
The second new entry comes also
from a German rapper. Yasha had a huge success with "Lila Wolken", where
he provided a helping hand to Marteria and Miss Platnum, with the hit
reaching #1 at the end of last year. Now, he is back solo as "Strand"
debuts at #19.
Up five to #21 OneRepublic's "Counting Stars" advances
towards the top 20, while in its second week Bruno Mars' "Treasure"
soars to #25 from #91. The two songs are the third singles from
OneRepublic's and Mars' current LPs.

Fergie was last in the top 30 as a lead artist back in 2007 with "Big Girls Don’t Cry" - a situation which now changes as "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)" from the Great Gatsby soundtrack moves three to #29.
#36 Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull move up a place from #37, while
Rihanna's next official single - "Right Now", a collaboration with David
Guetta (who else?), is up five to #43.

Up two to #44 is Duke Dumont
and his "Need U (100 %)", while at #50 Lana Del Rey barely makes it in
the top 50 with its Great Gatsby anthem "Young & Beautiful". Thus
she has an unharmed string of top 50 singles in the country, though her
previous three never made it inside the top 40.

The Album Chart
dominance of German artists in the LP chart continues for yet another
week as Xavier Naidoo scores his fifth number one album with "Bei meiner
Seele". He is followed by Beatrice Egli, Tim Bendzko, Sportfreunde
Stiller and Santiano in a perfectly looking German top five. The second
new entry comes in the shape of "...Like Clockwork", the latest album
of Queens Of The Stone Age at #7. The debut album of local newcomer
Maxim, called "Staub", enters the chart at #10.
