Germans continue to be crazy about the bass of Meghan Trainor as her "All About That Bass" smashes the competition for a six week in a row. Robin Schulz and Jasmine Thompson have to stall at #2 with "Sun Goes Down", while The Avener returns to the top three, up one, with "Fade Out Lines".

German rock band Unheilig, around singer Der Graf, is showing no sign of losing any fans as new single "Zeit zu gehen" debuts at #6. Apart from the fact that we haven't got a top-ten new entry in a few weeks, the single is also worth mentioning as it not only marks the first release from Unheilig's 8th studio album but also, as the title suggests it, signals the end of the band's career. Their new album and subsequent tour will be the last but at least Der Graf and co. can be proud of already having six top-ten singles in Germany.
Within the top 20 Maroon 5's "Animals" is advancing two to #11, while "Back Home" of Fritz Kalkbrenner is up three to #17.

The Album Chart
It's rarely seen for an album to advance to the top of the German chart but when it belongs to legend Udo Juergens it could have been expected as his 42nd album "Mitten Im Leben-Das Tribute Album" becomes only the third one in his long career to reach the summit. German musician Laith Al-Deen may have been long absent from the singles chart but his success in the album countdown continues and his latest offering named "Was wenn alles gut geht" debuts at #2. Rapper Curse and "Uns" arrives at #5, while the newest Christmas release of Gregorian called "Winter Charms" enters at #6. "The Basement Tapes Raw: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11" of Bob Dylan & The Band is new at #9.
