It's a second week for Daft Punk and "Get Lucky" on top though their reign can soon be over as Robin Thicke's phenomenal "Blurred Lines" soars eleven positions and lands at #2. And yes, Pharrell Williams takes part in the two hits, go figure... At #3 Capital Cities' "Safe And Sound" is simply refusing to exit the top three.

Up six to a new peak
at #4 Sportfreunde Stiller are having one of their biggest hits to date
with "Applaus!! Applaus!!". Now only number one "’54, ’74, ’90, 2006"
has charted higher in the Sporties' career.
Also advancing fast (and
hopefully not furious) is 2 Chainz & Wiz Khalifa's "We Own It" as
the Fast & Furious 6 song moves up 23 positions and enters the top
ten at #5 in its second week. It's easily the best performing single for
the two US rappers (Maroon 5's "Payphone" excluded).
countdown, OneRepublic are destined to have a third hit from their
current album in Germany as the (great) "Counting Stars" shoots itself
from #51 to #26 and becomes the ninth (out of ten) single of Ryan and co
in the German top 30. The previous two singles from the "Native" album
reached the top 10.
At #30 we have a re-entry of "Stern des Südens"
of Bayern-Fans United, which is of course attributed to the huge success
of the German football club over the last few weeks.
Gatsby" is occupying the top places in the cinema charts, Fergie's
anthem from the movie "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)"
moves in its second week up 9 positions to #32.
It's also a new peak for
Bastille's "Pompeii", which finally enters the top 40 at #36, up from
#50. Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull also return this week to the top 40 as
their single "Live It Up" rebounds from #70 to #37. It is however a far
cry from the success the two global stars are used to in Germany.

highest and only new entry inside the top 50 is the dance anthem "Bang
Bang (Explode)" of newcomers Df&S vs. Ceresia & Ron Carroll at
#42. For now the summer is definitely lacking any strong dance tracks
but the next weeks will probably amend that.
And finally, Duke
Dumont's UK number one "Need U (100 %)" makes it this week to the top 50
as it soars from #77 to #46. It's the first single of the British DJ in
the German charts.
And the other new entries this week:
69. Kamaliya - I'm Alive
90. Ke$ha ft. will.i.am - Crazy Kids
91. Bruno Mars - Treasure
The Album Chart
a triumph for German acts in the album chart as Tim Bendzko's sophomore
album "Am seidenen Faden" debuts directly at #1. His debut peaked at #4
two years ago. Now Bendzko is followed by Sportfreunde Stiller's sixth
studio album "New York, Rio, Rosenheim", which becomes the third LP of
the band to peak at #2. They of course have two number ones on their
account. The top three is completed by Beatrice Egli's "Glücksgefühle",
which is down only one in its second week on release. Also new in the
top ten is the debut album of Gleis 8, the group which has taken Anna
from Rosenstolz after the duo break-up. "Bleibt das immer so" comes in
