German Chart Comments - Issue Date 27.12

After a brief stay at #1 for just a week, "Changes" of Faul & Wad Ad & Pnau (I challenge you to remember the artists in two years) drops this time to #2, leaving the way for Pitbull to have his first number single in the country as a lead artist. The superstar  provided in the past vocals to Jennifer Lopez' number one smash "On The Floor" but "Timber" becomes his first proper chart topper in Germany. Kudos also to Kesha, whose participation on the song means that the singer has her second number one in the country after 2009's "Tik Tok".

The top three is rounded up by "Lieder" of Adel Tawil, while the highest new entry comes on behalf of this year's winner of The Voice of Germany. Andreas Kuemmert is the man who unsurprisingly ranked first in the casting show, with "Simple Man" being his winner song. And the single arrives this week fresh at #4. The show had produced two winners before Andreas - Ivy Quainoo, whose career started promisingly before no one noticed that she had a new album out several months ago, and Nick Howard, who I think no one remembers any more.

Inside the top 50 The Voice of Germany is also responsible for #12 where runner-up Chris Schummert has his "The Singer" entering the chart, while Judith Van Hel, which ranked third, is new at #20 with "Fucking Beautiful". The two come from team Samu of Sunrise Avenue fame.

Coinciding with the success of The Hobbit 2 in cinemas, Ed Sheeran's "I See Fire", which is featured in the movie's soundtrack, soars this week to #9 from #53. The song thus reaches the same peak as Sheeran's only hit in Germany - "The A Team". However, the latter enjoyed a relative longevity in the chart, which "I See Fire" would probably not see.

By the looks of it, though reaching a new peak at #22, "Unconditional" is going to be one of the minor hits of Katy Perry. This week sees also the return of "Dark Horse" in the chart at #32. The song, which appeared briefly before the release of Perry's latest album, will be now officially promoted as a third single taken out of it.

After "Can’t Believe It" reached #4 earlier this year, Flo Rida starts slowly with his follow-up offering called "How I Feel". The song enters this week at #24 to be Rida's 12th top 30 single as a lead artist.

Pharrell Williams is definitely among the stars of the year as he provided vocals to two of 2013 biggest tracks "Get Lucky" of Daft Punk and "Blurred Lines" of Robin Thicke. Now, it is time for the man to rekindle his own solo career, which results in "Happy" entering at #30. Easily the song becomes his biggest solo outing in the country, beating the #37 of 2005's "Can I Have It Like That".

As his protege in The Voice of Germany won the show, Max Herre is also enjoying a minor chart success with the MTV Unplugged version of "A-N-N-A (Immer Wenn Es Regnet)" rising to #43 from #51.

And last, we have a new single of Frei.Wild entering as it is the tradition lately in the lower part of the top 50. "Stille Nacht" is thus at #45.

The Album Chart

In another slow week in the album chart Robbie Williams' "Swings Both Ways" is still at #1, cementing its status as one of the biggest releases this year. "Farbenspiel" of Helene Fischer is still at #2, while Max Herre brings his first MTV Unplugged at #3. The ex-Freundeskreis singer has scored two number one solo albums so far.
