After becoming one of the biggest stars in Germany for less than a year, with a pair of number two hits on his back, it is not strange to see local rapper Cro having his first number one with "Whatever". The song, which will feature in a new edition of the debut album of the man with the panda mask, shoots directly to the #1 slot, removing Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" to #2 after four weeks at the summit.

predicted last week, "Wake Me Up" of Avicii was destined for glory and I
was proven right as the title soars 13 positions to #3, becoming the
first single of the Swedish producer to enter the top three in Germany.
After leaving the top ten for a week, Bastille's "Pompeii" recoups six places and peaks at #6 this time around.
in the top ten is "LaLaLa" by Naughty Boy, up to #9 from #20, while
outside the top 20, Bruno Mars' "Treasure" also turns in the right
direction by rising six to #23.

French DJ superstar Martin Solveig
has had troubles to bring a worthy successor to his #5 anthem "Hello" in
Germany but now he is on the right course as his collaboration with The
Cataracs becomes his second single to enter the top 30. "Hey Now"
appears at #24.
Jason Derulo's "The Other Side" finally makes it this week inside the top 40 by rising to #36 from #47. It is the seventh track of the US star to enter the top 40 but is still a far cry from his biggest hits.
After "Bring Back the Love" flopped at #98 earlier this year, Swiss DJ Mike Candys is back on better form as his latest material called "Everybody" debuts at #40, becoming the sixth single of Candys inside the German top 50.
Coinciding with his foray on top of the UK charts this week, John Newman makes a welcome new entry in Germany with the great "Love Me Again" at #43. Previously he provided vocals for Rudimental's "Feel the Love" which reached #59.
Mika hasn't been in the top 100 since his "Kick Ass" anthem from 2010 and though his latest album "The Origin Of Love" was released in September 2012, the first song from it to appear in the chart did so last week. Now "Underwater" rises to #46 from #57, becoming the seventh single of the singer, who undeservingly was long forgotten elsewhere, in the top 50.
Armin van Buuren may be one of the most famous DJs worldwide, but his chart career has definitely not mirrored his success in the clubs so far. In 2002 his "The Sound of Goodbye" peaked at #52 but it needed 11 years for a second single on his account to enter the top 100 and now the top 50 as "This Is What It Feels Like" rises eight to #47.
And the other new entries this week:
65. DJ Sammy ft. The Jackie Boyz - Shut Up And Kiss Me
80. Michael Mind Project ft. Bobby Anthony & Rozette - One More Round
90. Dimitri Vegas, Moguai & Like Mike - Mammoth
94. Claire - Games
The Album Chart
In the album top 100 Frida Gold's second album "Liebe ist meine Rebellion" makes a splash by entering directly at #1, outperforming the #14 peak of "Juwel" from 2011. Black Sabath's "13" is stuck to #2, while Santiano's "Mit den Gezeiten" recoups one to #3. "The Weight of Your Love", the fourth album of British band Editors, debuts at #4 beating the previous efforts of the boys from Birmingham.
