Finally some movement atop the German singles chart as David Guetta's "Dangerous" gives up the number one position after being there for seven non-consecutive weeks. It's up to British singer and newcomer Kwabs and his amazing "Walk" to rise up one and claim the throne. Curiously, the song flopped at #71 in his home country. While David Guetta falls to #3, we have a new entry straight in at #2 coming from Clean Bandit and their latest collaboration with Jess Glynne called "Real Love". Their previous one "Rather Be" reached #1 in the course of the last year but was followed by a misfire by Clean Bandit and "Come over" (peak #76), while Jess Glynne had a brief success with "Right here", which peaked at #25.

Need Your Love" reached #12.

It's up four to #12 for "Blank Space" and Taylor Swift and up one to #13 for Mark Forster and "Flash mich".

appearing inside the top 20.

Avicii's "The Night" continues its ascent and is now at #29, up five, while the second highest new entry belongs to Kanye West and his unusual collaboration with one Paul McCartney. Kanye has been absent from the charts since "Niggas in Paris" peaked at #40 in 2011, while Sir Paul was last in the German singles chart in 2005 with "Fine Line". "Only One" debuts this week at #32.

Following AaronChupa and Martin Tungevaag, Norway's next DJ export is ready to conquer the German chart. He comes under the name of Kygo and "Firestone", which soars to #33 from #84. The song, with added vocals by Conrad, has already topped the Norway's chart and has been a top ten hit in Sweden.
The last time Sasha, who had a brief success all over continental Europe with "If You Believe" in 1998, was in the top 40 was in 2009. Now his comeback single "Good Days" rises 19 places to peak at #38.
The next Europe-wide hit to start conquering Germany comes from Jamaican singer Omi, whose "Cheerleader" has been remixed by German DJ Felix Jaehn and has already been a solid hit in Sweden and Denmark. In its second week on the German top 100 the song climbs from #69 to #42.
Up fifteen to #45 is Ariana Grande's collaboration with The Weeknd called "Love Me Harder". It is the third single of Grande in the top 50 as a lead artist.
