In the peak of the summer we have a completely dance top three with Imany's "Don't Be So Shy" leading the parade for sixth consecutive week. It is once again followed by "Cold Water", the smash offering of Major Lazer feat. Justin Bieber & MØ, while Felix Jaehn feat. Alma bring "Bonfire" one step higher to #3.

It's definitely summer when you see Mike Perry and Shy Martin entering the top ten with "The Ocean". The track moves up five to #6. Two positions behind, at #8, arrives the highest new entry for the week. It belongs to DJ Snake with the help of Justin Bieber (who else?) and the single "Let Me Love You". While his previous single "Middle" stumbled in Germany by reaching only #49, DJ Snake is partly responsible for last year's anthem "Lean On", which of course was credited also to Major Lazer. The latter, as you already know, is at #2 with "Cold Water", which also features Bieber on vocal duties. It's a family affair, the German chart...

"Suicide Squad" may be arriving in German cinemas next Thursday but that doesn't stop the songs featured in its soundtrack to storm the upper reaches of the chart (and many say they are the only good thing around the film...). Thus, "Sucker for Pain" of Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign and X Ambassadors rises 17 places to land at #17. "Heathens" of twenty one pilots also makes it to the top 30 by flying from #45 to #26.

Although the name Kerstin Ott may sound unfamiliar, it is actually the woman responsible for "Die immer lacht", one of the absolute hits in Germany this year. The song became famous through the remix of Stereoact, staying at #2 for months. Now Ott is back with her first proper solo hit called "Scheissmelodie". It enters at #31.
