The positions one to four are once again unchanged this week as Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" spends a comfortable fourth week on top of the German singles chart. It is followed by Mr. Probz' "Waves", Pharrell Williams' "Happy" and Helene Fischer's "Atemlos durch die Nacht".

The chart marks also the first ever top ten single of George Ezra as his "Budapest" moves up seven to #5.
band Mando Diao has been absent from the German top 100 since 2010 when
their MTV Unplugged version of "Down in the Past" reached #53. Now,
however, they are back with the pilot single of the "Aelita" LP. "Black
Saturday" arrives at #8 and has the honour to be the second top ten hit
of the group next to modern classic "Dance with Somebody", which reached
#2 in 2009.
The profile of German rapper Kollegah has been
increasing over the past few months and it is thus not strange that the
third single from his current album becomes also the singer's first ever
top ten hit. "King" debuts this week at #10, beating the #15 peak of
"Alpha" from earlier this year.
Now with finally an official video,
"One day(Vandaag)" of Bakermat is destined to have even a brighter chart
future and the song moves three to #12 this week.
The trend of
electro songs becoming huge continues as "She Moves (Far Away)" of Alle
Farben feat. Graham Candy soars to #18 from #70 where it debuted a week
earlier. Alle Farben, born Frans Zimmer, is a German DJ and this is his
first ever chart foray.
Aloe Blacc is on his way to have a third top
20 single as "The Man" rises to #22 from #43, while "Strong" of London
Grammar re-enters the top 100 at #28. Also on the rise are "All Night"
of Parov Stellar, up nine to #35 and "Best Day Of My Life", the debut
single of American Authors, up 15 to #46.

The Album Chart
Helene Fischer is once again number one with "Farbenspiel", despite the
arrival of "Space Police-Defenders Of The Crown" of local power metal
