Further down the top 20 we can see all candidates for the biggest hits in early 2016 climbing, with Lukas Graham's "7 Years" up four to #6, Dua Lipa's "Be The One" up nine to #12, G-Eazy ft. Bebe Rexha and "Me, Myself & I" up four to #13, X Ambassadors' "Renegades" up 13 to #14 and Sigala's "Sweet Lovin'" up one to #15. Apart from Sigala, these are all debut singles for the artists in the German hitparade. Also shooting itself inside the top 20 in its second week is "Fast Car" of Jonas Blue ft. Dakota, which rises from #41 to #16. Another dance smash - "Faded" of Alan Walker also makes it to the top 20, up to #17 from #30 in its third week. And let's not forget "Exs and Ohs" of Elle King, up five to #20, and a debut single for the singer as well. More or less, ten of the top 20 singles are the first songs with which the corresponding artists have succeeded in Germany.

The Album Chart
In the LP chart, which as of February 5 will also include streaming, another rapper - this time Summer Cem debuts at #1 with career-best "Cemesis" (last week's #1 plummets to #13 - which just shows how frontloaded the sales of these rap albums are). There are three other new entries inside the top three, with the only one worth mentioning is "4 1/2", a mini album of Steven Wilson at #7.
