Not much going on in this week's German singles chart as the highest new entry can be found as low as at #73 and Meghan Trainor spends a fourth week on top with "All About That Bass". The Avener's dance track "Fade Out Lines" regains one slot to #2, while "Geronimo" of Sheppard makes it inside the top three by also moving up one.

At #4, and entering the top five up from #9, is Robin Schulz ft. Jasmine Thompson and "Sun Goes Down".
At #21, coinciding with the release of his third album, Fritz Kalkbrenner scores his best performing single in terms of a chart peak as "Back Home" soars 27 positions. Fritz is most famous for his track "Sky and Sand", a collaboration with his brother Paul, which reached #29 but remained in the chart for the incredible 129 weeks.
The guys from Maroon 5 continue their steady rise with "Animals" as the song moves up nine to #23. Finding somewhat surprising wind beneath her wings is Charli XCX and "Boom Clap" as the already quite old song rebounds to #36 from #60.

After spending the last few months occupying various positions between #50 and #60, a cover performance on the Voice of Germany was the impetus needed by Tove Lo and her global hit "Habits (Stay High)" to finally enter the top 40. The song soars 20 places to #38.
And finally, also thanks to its exposure on The Voice of Germany, country superstar Keith Urban has his first ever top 50 single in Germany as his 2002 track "Somebody Like You" has benefited from a cover on the show and is this week up to #42 from #97.
