Although Dutch singer Mr. Probz had to retreat from the number one slot two weeks ago, his "Waves" (and especially the Robin Schulz remix) returns there this time and spends a second non-consecutive week as Germany's most beloved single. Thus, Pharrell Williams' "Happy" is down to #2 after being #1 for a total of eight weeks. Up one to #3, and entering the top three for the first time, is Clean Bandit's "Rather Be".

Also registering a rise of one place to new peaks we have Avicii's "Addicted To You" at #7 and Cris Cab's "Liar Liar" at #9.
The highest new entry this week can be found at #10 coming from Der Graf and his group Unheilig with their Eurovision offering "Als wär’s das erste Mal".
Unfortunately, or not, the song placed second in the ranking for
Germany's choice for the music contest in Denmark but the single at
least has the honour to be the fifth top ten track of Unheilig. Last Der
Graf was in the chart in 2012 with "Stark 2012", which reached #23.
#11, up from #15, Sam Smith's "Money On My Mind" is heading towards the
first ten, while at #15, up from #25, Coldplay's "Magic" becomes the
sixth top 20 single of the British band in its second week in the

Australian singer Vance Joy and his amazing "Riptide" had
already succeeded in being a relatively big hit in the UK and the time
to conquer Germany has finally come as the single debuts at #23.
the release of a video, Sido's "Liebe" has returned on the upward path
as the single moves up eight and is this week at #24.
A couple of new entries arrive at #31 and #32 coming from Kylie Minogue and Linkin Park, respectively. "Into The Blue", which heralds the release of Kylie's 12th studio album, comes two years after "Timebomb" flopped massively at #56. Linkin Park are also ready with a new album with "Guilty All The Same" being the first release from it.

Speaking of Eurovision earlier, I should now mention that the song which actually beat Unheilig to represent Germany arrives at #41. "Is It Right" marks the debut of girl trio Elaiza in the chart and we should expect it to be higher in the weeks to come.
And finally, a quick mentioning to Der Tourist Feat. Friedrich Liechtenstein, whose curious "Supergeil" moves up nine to #50, coming on the wave of the song use in a local supermarkt chain advertising.

The Album Chart
It may have come in the autumn of last year, but "Farbenspiel" of Helene Fischer spends yet another week as Germany's most bought album. It is followed by "G I R L" of Pharrell, which sticks to #2 where it entered seven days ago. New at #3 is the latest offering of Mike Oldfield. "Man on the Rocks" becomes the first appearance of the veteran artist inside the top three after three of his eighties albums reached #1. At #4 "Alles was du willst" turns into the most successful LP of local band Luxuslärm, while rapper Olexesh is new at #7 with "Nu eta da". The top ten is closed with the "Best Of" collection of every granny's favourite Argentinian - the one Semino Rossi.
