The first #1 of the new year is the last #1 of the old year: Rockabye by Clean Bandit Feat. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie spends a third week at the German top which marks the 15th consecutive week a British act appears there. For featured artist Sean Paul it is now the longest running #1 hit he appears on as Cheap Thrills alongside SIA left the top after two weeks in April 2016.
Almost exactly a year after Alan Walker's first hit Faded charted for the very first time he can launch a second top 5 hit as Alone goes 8–4 in its fifth chart week.
The first new top 10 hit stops by at #6. Shed A Light is an all star collaboration by Robin Schulz & David Guetta Feat. Cheat Codes. For Robin Schulz this is a return to top 10 status after a year although it is his seventh within three years. David Guetta already has now 18 top 10 hits under his belt–Shed A Light being the third consecutive and it is one of two simultaneous hits as Would I Lie To You sits pretty at #8 still.
As all Christmas tunes leave the list this week we do have 20 songs that were not listed the week before. 18 of them re-appearing in the list–it is the highest amount since March 2010.
