James Blunt's "Heart To Heart" rises four this week and sits at #33 (perhaps the Echo 2014 version with Helene Fischer will boots its sales further), while "Trumpets" of Jason Derulo goes up two to #34.

The second highest new entry comes from local veteran hip hop group Die Fantastischen Vier, who are celebrating their 25th anniversary with a new single called aptly "25". The song arrives at #38 four years after "Danke" reached #36.

The Album Chart
The devotion of the fans of rap music to their stars is enough (at least for now) to prevent Unheilig to debut at #1 in the album chart with its Best Of 1999-2014. Thus Der Graf and his band enter at #2, with the new album "Killa" of Farid Bang coming at #1. This is the second consecutive number one of Farid Bang in the LP chart. "Zodiak" of Chakuza RAF Camora is new at #4, followed by Subway To Sally's "Mitgift" at #5 and George Michael's "Symphonica" at #6. George Michael's 2004 offering "Patience" reached #1. In a competitive week such as the current one Kylie Minogue has to be satisfied with her latest album "Kiss Me Once" entering at #10. In comparison, "Aphrodite" peaked at #3.
