release of a provocative video sees "Can't Remember To Forget You", the
somewhat boring team-up of Shakira and Rihanna, soaring ten to enter
the top ten at #9. It is thus Shakira's tenth top ten single in Germany
as a lead artist.
Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" is also heading towards the top ten slots as it climbs eight and is at #12.

his first solo single called "Money On My Mind". The song, which comes
after the huge success of Naughty Boy's "La La La" (peak #2), to which
Sam provided vocals, is new at #14.
