27th of March 15:

Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do does not falter a bit. It still stands at number 1 position in its sixth week. And already has written chart history as I reported past week.

Nailed at number 2 OMI's Cheerleader is due to the hands on by Felix Jaehn. It is the 12th chart week of the song at all and the sixth consecutive at number 2. Well–just before this run it had a short week at number 1 as well.

With Lost Frequencies and Are You With Me going 5–3 there is a slight move going on at the top end. And perspectives are good for getting the track a number 1. It is now the most successful Belgian production since MILOW's You And Me (In My Pocket). That is exactly four years ago.

New inside the Top 10 James Bay is. His Hold Back The River goes 14–6 in its ninth chart week. And new at number 10 British trio Years & Years comes in with it debut single King. So the Top10 once again is deeply in British hands. Seven out of ten productions come from the island. Counting the tracks by its origin (or at least the origin of artists involved) we see the best sold 14 songs with participation of Europeans. This result eclipses the one of May past year.


TV influenced re-entries
Although the current season of Deutschland sucht den Superstar is aired right now the biggest impact of a TV show comes this week from an event aired by public TV. Florian Silbereisen was presenting Die Besten im Frühling (Best of Spring)–a Schlager show– on 14th of March 2015. A bunch of stars and big names where on the show but most impressive Roland Kaiser was. His duet with Maite Kelly Warum hast du nicht nein gesagt re-enters the list at number 59. The single is published since September 2014 and became something of a sleeping hit. The label just spread the message that a release on CD will follow in April. So that song might become the next big thing of German schlager.

And finally DSDS. Of course the casting format also has an impact on the charts. On the show on 14th of March an well known candidate had his performance again. Menderes Bağcı performed on every season but never made it into the final rounds. This year he chose Love Never Felt So Good originally recorded by Michael Jackson (&Justin Timberlake). His performance gave him a chance to enter the recall shows–as we know already also 2015 he was fired from the rest of the show. The chosen song meanwhile gets some chart honour again and re-enters for a week at number 71 in its 22nd chart week.
