Following a slow start last week and now reflecting a complete week of sales, Katy Perry's and Lady Gaga's newest material storms the upper reaches of the chart as "Roar" moves up nine to #3 and "Applause" is up 13 places to #5. Thus, Katy Perry has her fourth top three single (and the seventh top ten one), while Lady Gaga scores her tenth top ten song in the country.

The girl power continues at #6 where Ellie Goulding advances three and registers a new peak position with her "Burn". Also on the rise is Belgian Stromae as "Papaoutai" becomes his second top ten single next to #1 "Alors on danse". The song, which has already crowned the charts of the French speaking countries, is up from #23 to #8. It's also great to see Olly Murs' "Dear Darlin'" becoming his third top ten single in Germany as it climbs six to #9.

Schlager singer Jürgen Drews, who had a couple of top ten hits in the 70s, is back in the top 20 as his newest single "Kornblumen" debuts at #15. Four years ago he had a top ten single with "Ich bau dir ein Schloss", while his "Ein Bett im Kornfeld" reached #1 in 1976.


Local project Follow Your Instinct, who had a minor hit with "My City" (peak #24) earlier this year, has teamed up with Alexandra (remember her?) Stan for "Baby, It's Ok". The team-up proves a success as the song enters this week at #17. The Romanian singer of course had a number one smash (and only chart entry so far) with "Mr. Saxobeat" in 2010. 


Following a three-year absence local duo 2raumwohnung is back with a new album and the first single taken out of it called "Bei Dir bin ich schön" comes in at #29. The duo is most famous for its "36 Grad" hit, which reached #22.


At #30 Imagine Dragons are steadily on the rise with their third single "On Top Of The World", which climbs 19 positions and is currently in a desperate need of a video to become big.


Following "Am seidenen Faden", which reached #11 before a couple of months, local singer Tim Bendzko returns to the chart with a second single from his current album. "Programmiert" appears this week at #32. 

Further down the top 50, we have on the rise Empire Of The Sun's "Alive", up two to #39 and Martin Garrix' "Animals", up seven to #41.

And finally, the controversial "Willst du" of hip-hop singer Alligatoah makes it this week inside the top 50 by moving 13 positions to #43. It's the first single of Alligatoah in the countdown.

59. Carlprit - Here We Go (Allez allez) 

71. Darius & Finlay feat. Jai Matt & Nicco - Get Away 

86. Daniel Schuhmacher - Rolling Stone
90. Bodybangers feat. Tony T - Break My Stride


The Album Chart

Following their #3 album "Sturm aufs Paradies" from 2011 German medieval metal band Saltatio Mortis score a career-best this week as "Das schwarze IXI" debuts straight at #1. Santiano are once again at #2, while Austrian rapper Nazar charts at #3 with "Fakker Lifestyle" - his most successful LP so far. Also new at #6 is the latest album of Travis called "Where You Stand".
