German Chart Comments - Issue Date 26.02.2016

As Alan Walker spends his third week atop the German chart with the amazing "Faded", Steroact and the even more amazing take of "Die immer lacht" moves up one to #2, while providing them with their first ever hit in Germany "Stressed Out" of Twenty One Pilots advances three to #3. All in all, we have a completely fresh and exciting top three this week. 

Supported by a just released video, Rihanna and Drake bring "Work" inside the top ten, up six to #6. Thus the number of top-ten singles with Rihanna's participation rises to the whopping 23 for just eleven years. 

Topic and Nico Santos are up three to #20 with "Home", while Flo Rida is close to having his next top-20 track with "My House" also up three to #21. And also up three, to a new peak at #23, are Yall and Gabriela Richardson with "Hundred Miles".

The parade of dance tracks continues with Zara Larsson and "Never Forget You", which climbs eleven to 30. The song, a collaboration with British producer MNEK, is Zara Larsson's second offering in Germany after "Lush Life" turned to be one of the biggest hits of the last months by reaching #4. 

Up one to #31 is "Hymn for the Weekend", the second official release from Coldplay's last studio album. The Chainsmokers and "Roses" can be found at #32, going up from #33.

US singer Mike Posner started his career strongly with "Cooler Than Me" in 2010 (peak in Germany #22) but quickly disappeared from the chart scene. However, now six years later, he is about to have the biggest hit to his name with "I Took A Pill In Ibiza" and especially the remix made by Norwegian duo SeeB. The song was already huge in Scandinavia and is soon to conquer the entire world. 

"Jolene", not only one of the most famous songs of country legend Dolly Parton but one of the best songs to ever see the light (fact), was (of course) never a hit in Germany. Now local duo The BossHoss, with the help of Dutch duo The Common Linnets (of Eurovision fame), has decided to cover it, and the result has slowly crept inside the top 40. It's up two this week to #38.

The highest of only three new entries comes in at #44. "Diese Nacht ist jede Sünde wert" is the comeback single of schlager legend Andrea Berg, who is ready with a new album (which will probably hit several times platinum). Berg, however, has never had a big success with her singles, so the new song easily scores the best placing for a track she has ever released. 

The other new entries: 

91. Charlie Puth - One Call Away
94. Jason Derulo - Get Ugly

The Album Chart

Just for a change the schlager stars managed to beat the rap ones as the latest album of schlager duo Fantasy tops the LP countdown. "Freudensprünge" is the second album in a row of the NRW boys to crown the listing. Thus, rapper Kurdo has to be satisfied with the #2 entry of his "Verbrecher aus der Wüste". And though often rap albums enter the chart higher than those of schlager stars, the latter show much higher longevity in it.
