18th of July 2014: Is Robin Schulz the artist of the year?

A fifth week at the top makes Prayer in C the second longest running number 1 of 2014 so far. Only Happy by Pharrell Williams performed better with eight weeks at the top.
If one count the remix of Mr Probz' Waves as a full and regular Robin Schulz entry than he is the most successful artist of the year by now collecting nine weeks at the top so far.

As the number 1 also the rest of the Top 10 is almost frozen. OneRepublic manages to climb a further place to number 3 with its Love Runs Out and Helene Fischer now spends a 29th week inside the Top 10 with her Atemlos durch die Nacht. It now matches the result of Butterfly by Daniel Gerard (1970) and A Song Of Joy by Miguel Rios (1971) which are so far the two songs with the second longest Top 10 appearance. The absolut record still stands at unbelievable 42 weeks for Ein Stern (der deinen Namen trägt) by DJ Ötzi & Nik P. from the year 2007.

The only song new inside the Top 10 comes from British Drum'n'Bass act SIGMA that vaults four places to number 8 with their production Nobody To Love

One of the very rare significantly moving tracks is Chandelier the very first solo single charting in Germany by SIA. The track so far sneaked through the lowest ends of the list for five weeks reaching only position 81. Now with the full released album 1000 Forms Of Fear in the back the single can leap to number 44. In France the song right now reached number 1.

The second significant mover is Zuhause by Adel Tawil Featuring Matisyahu. The track was released on the album Lieder and supported as a single track by special versions performed on SWR radio. Just before every match of the German team at the FIFA WM Adel Tawil changed the lyrics and recorded the track newly. The song now jumps 96–50.

Due to the WM also the inofficial anthem of the Bundesliga (and following EM) of 2012 re-enters the list. Tage wie diese by Die Toten Hosen adds a 83rd chart week at number 81.
