Two months ago David Guetta with the help of Sam Martin, but thanks mainly to producer Avicii, debuted at top of the German singles chart and is still there, untroubled neither by Marlon Roudette and his former #1 "When The Beat Drops Out", which continues to be at #2, nor by Ella Henderson and her amazing "Ghost", which sticks to #3.

In its second week on the list, Calvin Harris' "Blame" soars ten positions to #4, becoming the second top ten hit in the career of the British musician. As for John Newman, who provides the vocals, this is also his second top ten single, beating the #6 peak of "Love Me Again".
At #8, in its third week, The Script's "Superheroes" shows some inner strength and moves up two.
Nothing is on the way of Meghan Trainor and her worldwide chart domination with "All About That Bass" as the debut single shoots itself from #24 to #9.
"Problem", the previous single of Ariana Grande, reached #19 not so long ago, but her second foray in the German charts (as a lead singer) in the shape of "Break Free" advances this week eleven positions and occupies the 12th slot. It also beats the #15 peak of "Stay the Night", the best performing single of local producer Zedd, who is responsible for the Grande's hit.
Also in the right direction is Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off", as it climbs six to #13.
This week's highest new entry comes from Australian band Sheppard, which has taken the family name of three of its members. "Geronimo" has already topped the charts Down Under and Germany is the first country where it starts its assault on Europe. The song debuts at #15.
Further down the countdown Lenny Kravitz' "The Chamber" moves up six to #26, while Revolverheld's "Lass uns gehen" becomes the band's tenth top 30 single as it rises thirteen to #28. As it won the Bundesvision song contest last weekend, we can expect the song to go even higher next time around.

Duke Dumont's previous single "I Got U" was a minor hit in Germany as it peaked at #22 several months ago. Now the British DJ is back with "Won't Look Back" entering at #41.
And finally let's spare a thought for Nicki Minaj and her a**, sorry, "Anaconda", which rises ten to #48 in its fourth week in the chart.
The remaining new entries:
#71 Kraftklub - Unsere Fans
#74 Juli - Insel
#80 Lenny Kravitz - The Pleasure And The Pain
