German Chart Comments - Issue Date 20.09

Avicii's "Wake Me Up" is still unmovable from Germany's number one slot as it stays there for the tenth consecutive time. Though many have expected "Roar" of Katy Perry to be this week's winner, the song sticks to the runner-up position. Up two to #3 is "Dear Darlin" of Olly Murs. Though it's a great song, its performance is somewhat surprising as it is the third single taken from Olly's current album, while previous one "Army of Two" flopped massively at the low end of the chart.

John Newman's "Love Me Again" rises also two and is this week at #6, while new in the top ten is "Animals" by Martin Garrix, which advances eleven positions and sits comfortably at #8.

Following the #4 peak of "Im Ascheregen" from August this year, local rapper Casper releases the second single from his soon to be launched new album. Thus, "Hinterland" comes this week at #11, becoming the highest new entry in the top 100 and also the third song of Casper to enter the top 20. 


Earlier this year UK singer Birdy had a huge hit in Germany with "People Help the People", which despite not being much successful in her native country reached #3. Now, she is ready with new material and the magnificent "Wings" enters fresh at #15. There're still no signs that the song would make any chart news in the UK though. 


She is currently all over the gossip columns with her erratic behaviour but that doesn't stop Miley Cyrus to finally bring her global hit "We Can't Stop" in the top 20. So after some wait, the song has caught the attention of the record-buying public and shoots this week to #16 from #39. It beats the #17 peak of Miley's best performing single in Germany so far - "7 Things" from 2008. At #25 we can also find Miley Cyrus' next single - the notorious "Wrecking Ball", which after heading in the wrong direction last week, climbs this time around to #25 from #72. It is her fifth top 30 single in Germany.

The influx of YouTube stars bringing songs to the chart continues for yet another week as local Internet presenters Gronkh & Sarazar, also known as Die Superhomies, bring "Elektrotitte (5000 Volt)" directly at #17. 


Two positions behind, Coldplay arrive with "Atlas", the main song from the forthcoming Hunger Games movie sequel. The song comes after "Princess of China" reached #41 and is the fifth top 20 single of the British band.

At positions #22 to #24 we have three songs definitely on the rise - "On Top Of The World" of Imagine Dragons, up one to #22, Alligatoah's "Willst Du", up seven to #23, and Family Of The Year's "Hero", also up seven to #24.

By entering at #26 "Run Boy Run" becomes the first proper hit of French musician Woodkid, who has been more famous as a music videos director so far. "I Love You" has also entered the German chart but has reached only #61.


And finally, Ivy Quainoo, the winner of the first edition of Germany's The Voice, is ready with her second album and "Wildfires (Light It Up)", the pilot single, this week enters at #44, a far cry from the #2 peak of debut single "Do You Like What You See".


And the other new entries this week:

52. Andrea Berg - Das Gefuehl  
63. Chvrches - The Mother We Share 
67. DJ Bobo & Mike Candys - Take Control

The Album Chart

Nothing can stop schlager queen Andrea Berg to have her seventh number one album this week as "Atlantis" storms the album chart with massive sales and cementing the genre dominance in this countdown. Thus Schiller's "Opus" has to slip a position to #2, while Arctic Monkeys' praised "AM" debuts at #3, falling short of the #2 peak of "Favourite Worst Nightmare". At #4 2raumwohnung have their sixth consecutive top album in the shape of "Achtung Fertig", while the latest live DVD of Madonna with her "MDNA" tour appears at #5. Also new in the top ten is Rise Against's "Long Forgotten Songs - B-Sides & Covers" at #7, Kontra K's "12 Runden" at #8 and Goldfrapp's "Tales of Us" at #9.
