Klingande celebrates a fourth (non-consecutive) week atop the German singles countdown, with Avicii's "Hey Brother" still at #2. At #3 Kassel-indie sensation Milky Chance moves up a position to enter the top three for the first time with "Stolen Dance".
Loathe it or admire it, but "Wrecking Ball" of Miley Cyrus has not only received two weeks ago the award for best video of M(moron)TV Europe but due to the additional publicity rises up ten to #6 in the German top 100. Thus it becomes the only song of the provocative star to enter the German top 10. Scandal definitely sells.
Though we're still in the waiting zone for a video and a proper promotion for this one, Lady Gaga's
Last time around I complained about the poor chart success of Robbie Williams and his latest "Go Gentle". This week he manages to make the situation a little bit rosier, with the single rising 15 to #25. The top ten, however, is still out of reach.
At #27 Drake, up from #35, is definitely going home, if the home is the top 30, as "Hold On, We're Going Home" is gaining in strength with every single week. At the same time, at #29, though for a moment it seemed that "The Fox" is not gonna be huge (it is still not) in Germany, the Ylvis party smasher at least manages to climb this week inside the top 30 by moving 13 places.
A "Wetten das" promotion and a new album behind her, it's time for Celine Dion to finally return to the brighter side of the German hitparade. In its second week on the list, "Loved Me Back To Life", the title track from Dion's freshly released album, soars to #38 from #80. Her last appearance in the chart was with 2007's minor hit "Taking Chances", which peaked at #25.
At #39 The Moody Blues return to the chart with "Nights In White Satin", with the hit from 1967 already reaching #18 in the past. Its resurrection is thanks to a recent beautiful performance on The Voice Of Germany.
The highest new entry comes as low as #46, belonging to Frei.Wild and "Verdammte Welt" and as it is 100% certain that it won't make it for a second week, let's move on to #47. There Kid Ink rises 20 with "Show Me", a collaboration with Chris Brown. Kid Ink's only top 100 single so far has been "Money and the Power", with a peak #70.
And some thoughts for the second highest new entry, which makes it barely inside the top 50. "Don't U Feel Alright" is the third single of dance project DJane HouseKat inside the countdown. In 2012 "My Party", surprisingly, peaked at #4, though I'm not sure that anyone actually remembers it.
And the other new entries this week:
52. Selig - Ohne dich
53. RY X - Berlin
59. Klingande - Punga
61. Justin Bieber - All Bad
70. Steve Aoki, Chris Lake & Tujamo - Boneless
87. Eminem feat. Sia - Beautiful Pain
88. Tinie Tempah feat. Ella Eyre - Someday (Place In The Sun)
94. Yvonne Catterfeld - Pendel
97. Icona Pop - All Night
98. OneRepublic - Something I Need
99. Jabberwocky feat. Elodie Wildstars - Photomaton
The Album Chart
This year it is extremely rare to see an album standing for a second week on top of the charts but Eminem manages the feat as his "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" is still #1. And that despite the heavy competition from The Rolling Stones and their latest "Sweet Summer Sun - Hyde Park Live", which comes at #2. At #3 Lady Gaga fails to make a greater impact with her much anticipated third album called "Artpop". Her first two albums both reached #1. "Lieder", the debut solo album of Adel Tawil, can be found at #4. Also new inside the top ten, is The Beatles' "On Air - Live At The BBC Volume 2", which arrives at #8.
