For better or worse the German singles chart continues to be quite stable, with positions number one to three remaining the same for a third week in a row. So the parade is once again led by Alan Walker and "Faded" (six weeks @ #1), Stereoact and Kerstin Ott are at #2 with "Die immer lacht", while Twenty One Pilots and "Stressed Out" stick to #3.
The only fresh wind inside the top ten belongs to Sia and "Cheap Thrills". The song moves up six to #6, thus becoming the most successful single of the Australian singer as a lead artist in Germany. In the song remix Sia gets support by Sean Paul, who despite being extremely popular in the country was last inside the top ten in 2013.
At #6 G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha rise one to register a new peak of "Me, Myself & I".
Rising four to #18, Coldplay score their ninth top 20 single in Germany with "Hymn For The Weekend". In their 22nd week in the chart Zara Larsson and Mnek climb four to #24 with "Never Forget You", while Fifth Harmony's "Work from Home" goes up to #29 from #41 where it debuted a week earlier.
The highest new entry comes from Ariana Grande and her latest release "Dangerous Woman". The title track of Ariana's still-to-be-released third album arrives at #30, after "Focus" peaked at #18 and spent 13 weeks in the chart last year.

The Album Chart
In the Albums countdown the soundtrack to local teen film "Mädchen gegen Jungs", the third part of the "Bibi & Tina" series, spends a second week atop the top 100. The last soundtrack to have been more than a week on top of the German albums chart was that of "8 Mile" from 2003. Five years after their previous studio offering reached #2, 3 Doors Down are back with new material. "Us and the Night" debuts at #5. Also new inside the top ten we have German band Luxuslärm and "Fallen und fliegen" at #9.
