It was expected and took just four weeks for Drake to have his first ever number one hit in Germany with "One Dance" moving up one to replace Sia's "Cheap Thrills" atop the singles chart. The latter retreats to the runner-up slot, while "Faded", the former number one of Alan Walker, sticks to #5.
The highest new entry this weeks comes from the star collaboration of Calvin Harris and Rihanna and their "surprising" new release "This Is What You Came For". Rihanna and Harris' previous team-up brought us #1 global smash "We Found Love". Now Calvin has six top ten singles to his account in Germany, while the list of hits of Riri that have gone among the first ten positions expands to the whopping 24...
"This Girl", the debut single of dance project Kungs vs Cookin' On 3 Burners, expectedly enters the top 10 by soaring 17 positions to #10. While at #17, up from #26, "Panda", the debut single of US rapper Desiigner, makes it big in Germany.
Julian Perretta's "Miracle" advances three to #20, while next to it, at #21, we can find "Sex" of Cheat Codes X Kris Kross Amsterdam. It was at #31 last week.
Speaking of dance tunes, Galantis' third single in Germany called "No Money" finally becomes the song with which Germans have acknowledged the Swedish DJ duo. It skyrockets from #76 to #31 to outpeak previous offerings "Runaway (U & I)" (#58) and "Peanut Butter Jelly" (#76).
"I Hate U I Love U", the single of US newcomer Gnash (with the participation of Olivia O'Brien), which has already topped the charts in Australia, is ready to conquer the globe. The song moves seventeen to #37 in its second week in the top 100.

The Album Chart
In the album countdown local veteran Udo Lindenberg scores his third #1 album with "Stärker als die Zeit" going directly to the summit. The "Sing meinen Song - Das Tauschkonzert, Vol.3" collaboration, which for reasons unknown continues to be considered as an album, arrives at #2, cementing the cult status of the previous two installments. Andrea Berg and her "Seelenbeben" round up the top three, after slipping two to #3 following three weeks as Germany's most sold album.
