A second week for Avicii on top of the German singles chart with "Wake Me Up". He is once again followed by Robin Thick's phenomenal "Blurred Lines" and Cro's "Whatever" at #2 and #3, respectively.

One place up,
and already at #4, we can find Naughty Boy and Sam Smith's catchy "La La
La", while further down the top 20 Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding
advance two to #15 with "I Need Your Love" and Bruno Mars finds his
"Treasure" at #18, up from #19.

Controversial local rapper Shindy
finds himself this week not only at #1 in the LP chart but is also
credited with the highest new entry in the singles chart with "Stress
ohne Grund" at #19. The collaboration with Bushido is the first song of
Shindy as a lead artist to enter the countdown, though he had taken part
in another Bushido song as well as in the "Finale wir kommen" single of Kay One (peak #29 in 2012).
At #22 we have on the rise John Newman's "Love Me Again", up from #36, and at #33 Genetikk's "Lieb's oder lass es", up from #37.

debuting at #38 last week, Jay-Z' "Holy Grail" moves up a notch to #37,
while the second new entry of the week can be found at #40. German medieval metal
group Saltatio Mortis has been active since 2005 but "Wachstum über
Alles" is their first single to ever manage to crack in the top 100.

The Album Chart
Before I finished my comments it had become clear that Shindy's "NWA", the debut album of the aforementioned rapper, is going to chart for only a week as it was banned from the chart due to too offensive lyrics. Why it is banned in its second week is not exactly clear but that is enough for Shindy to spend a week at #1 before disappearing completely from the next chart. Also new at #2 is Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" - the first album of Thicke to enter the top 100, while Pet Shop Boys' latest, called "Electric", enters at #3.
