Imany is far from being shy as her "Don't Be So Shy", in remix of Filatov & Karas, spends two full months at the summit of the Germany's singles chart. And it still has no official video... The song is once again followed by Major Lazor feat. Justin Bieber & MØ and "Cold Water" at #2 and Felix Jaehn feat. Alma and "Bonfire" at #3.

In fact, eight songs retain their last week positions in what is more-than-steady top ten in Germany. Fresh wind is only brought by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign and X Ambassadors and their Suicide Squad anthem "Sucker for Pain" as the song shoot itself up the chart, from #17 to #8. As anticipated over the last few weeks, Disturbed's "The Sound Of Silence" has finally arrived inside the top ten and it rises three to #10.

"Heathens" of twenty one pilots, the other great track from Suicide Squad, lands inside the top twenty, up eleven to #11. It is the second offering of the US rock duo to make it so high, next to their massive hit "Stressed Out" from earlier this year.

The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey have already crowned the difficult-to-crack Billboard Hot 100 chart with "Closer" and they are now on their way for big things in Germany as well. The track is up eight to #12.

The highest new entry belongs to local rappers Bonez MC & RAF Camora feat. Gzuz at #26 with "Mörder", the second single from their soon-to-be-released studio album. The song arrives at #26, just a position above their previous chart entry - "Palmen aus Plastik". The latter enters the top 30 for the first time by climbing six to #27, in what appears to be surprising chart longevity for German rap songs.

The next radio-friendly hit can be found at #32 in the shape of "Human" of Rag'n'Bone Man, which soars from #63. It is the first chart entry for the British singer.

Dutch DJ and producer Martin Garrix has cooked up another dance smash with the help of Bebe Rexha, one of the top newcomers of 2016. "In The Name Of Love" goes up to #33 from #54, to become Martin's fourth top 40 single in the country. It is the third appearance for Bebe Rexha in the top 40, as the singer gained fame with G-Eazy's "Me, Myself & I".

After the success of "Holland" (peak #18 and one of the hits of Germany's summer), local duo 257ers have another top 40 single on their hands as "Holz" moves nine to #35. And finally, although I don't expect it to rise any further (now, with the 2016 Olympic Games already behind us), Katy Perry's sports anthem "Rise" enters the top 40 at its rear end. It's at #39, up from #47.

The Album Chart
No less than eight new albums find their way directly inside the top ten of this week's LP countdown, led by Die Lochis, the YouTube sensation from Germany and their first ever album "#Zwilling". "The Last Stand" enters at #2 to become the best performing album of Swedish power metal band Sabaton. It is followed at #3 by "Midgard" of local folk-metal group Faun, also a career-best, and at #4 by "Brave Enough", the latest from Lindsey Stirling. It is actually her third LP to peak at #4. The German rap scene is presented at #6 with HB13 and "Bang Bang", while Faun's colleagues from Feuerschwanz enter the top ten for the first time with "Sex is muss" at #7. The schlager and party genre is responsible for the remaining two top-ten new entries - at #8 we have "Das Beste" from Daniela Alfinito (she has had so far only one album charting in the top 100) and at #9 lands the latest from Dorfrocker called "Heimat.Land.Liebe".
