Hate it or love it, it's a second week for Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty" at the top of the German singles chart. He is followed by Olly Murs' "Dear Darlin", which recoups two positions and sits comfortably at #2. Thus the song now needs only a little push to become Olly's second number one, next to "My Heart Skips A Beat". It at least matches the #2 peak of "Troublemaker". The top three is rounded by Avicii's "Wake Me Up", which is down one from #2.

Further down the top ten,
"Papaoutai" of Stromae advances this week to #6, proving that Germany
unlike UK welcomes foreign and non-English music on its shores.

once again what a chart force they are, Linkin Park bring "A Light That
Never Comes", their collaboration with Steve Aoki, this week to #8 from
#27 where they entered seven days ago. It's the sixth top ten single of
the US rockers in Germany.

A couple of weeks ago I expected
Eminem's comeback single "Berzerk" to be his next top ten single, but as
the song slipped to #28 last week, I thought I was definitely wrong.
Still, boosted perhaps by physical sales (do they matter any more?)
"Berzerk" moves up eighteen and can be found at #10. The song does
becomes Eminem's 13th top ten single - a feat which only a handful of
male artists can be proud of.
At #11 Family Of The Year's "Hero"
continues its rise, up from #19, while French project Klingande and
"Jubel" is also on the right path, as it moves in its second week from
#30 to #12.

The schlager music can be the definitive ruler of the
album charts at the moment, but as I've written before, there have been
only a few singles matching this success (and curiously most of them
come from male musicians). The things are, however, starting to slowly
change as this week we see "Fehlerfrei" of schlager princess Helene
Fischer entering at #20. It heralds the release of Fischer's new album
(which will most certainly hit the #1 slot soon) and becomes the first
ever top 20 single of the star. Her best performing song so far chart-wise
has been "Ich will immer wieder … dieses Fieber spürn", which peaked at
Five positions behind Helene, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
register their third top thirty single with "Same Love", which climbs
seven to #25.

After entering the top 50 last week, Bastille continue their climb with
"Things We Lost In The Fire", which somewhat surprisingly shoots itself
to #31 from #50.
Britney Spears' latest "Work Bitch" is also on the
rise, as the song moves up four positions to #37 in its second week in
the countdown. Now with a released video, it may even go higher.
also have a re-entry of Cologne-based band Voxxclub with "Rock mi" at
#45, while Passenger is following his global smash hit "Let Her Go" with
"Holes" at #50. The song is up from #57.

The Album Chart
giving up the throne in the albums chart to Die Aerzte (they are now
down to #5), schlager queen Andrea Berg expectedly returns to #1 with "Atlantis". "Mechanical Bull", the
latest album of Kings Of Leon debuts at #2, missing the #1 peak of their
previous LP. Sting's "The Last Ship" is new at #3 becoming a yet
another top ten album of the veteran star. Dream Theater's self-titled
LP arrives new at #4. Two years ago the rock band peaked at #3 with "A Dramatic Turn of Events". Katie
Melua's sixth studio album misses the top three unlike her four
previous recordings. "Ketevan" can still be found at #6, two places
above the soundtrack to "Metallica: Through The Never". "Immer In
Bewegung", the fourth album of local band Revolverheld, comes in at
#9 and for now becomes their worst performing one in terms of peak
