July 22nd 16: Galantis and Shindy Are Lucky

It is the third week for IMANY and her Don't Be So Shy at #1 in Germany. Seems that this is the summer hit 2016. A French summer. Although this week "only" #1 and #2 come from France as alle farben feat. YOUNOTUS rise one place to #3 with Please Tell Rosie. Latter one reaches its peak in the 14th chart week.

As Jennifer Lopez reaches #5 with Ain't Your Mama she is inside the top 5 the first time since her #1 On The Floor in July 2011.

Longest running inside the top 10 still Cheap Thrills by SIA Feat. Sean Paul is. It is already the 18th top 10 week which matches the best result so far installed by Alan Walker and his Faded.
The most top10 weeks collected by an artist in 2016 Justin Bieber still has on his account. Although this week his fellow landman DRAKE stands on his side as he also has a result of 20 weeks so far with One Dance sitting pretty at #7.

The lucky gainer of the week sits at #10. After spending directly two weeks under the glass ceiling Galantis celebrates its first top10 hit at all with No Money. The song is the third chart entry of the act–both predecessors failed to reach the upper half of the list. No Money also took a 13 weeks rise to get to its so far peak.

One more fact: It is this the first week without having a song in German under the top 10 since March 2015.


A real winner arrives at #13 as Shawn Mendes sees his recent single Treat You Better climb 11 places in its seventh chart week.
One place down there is finally a highest new entry worth its title. Shindy presents Roli as a pre-release to his album Dreams scheduled for November. By landing at #14 it is Shindy's highest chart entry at all–one have to realize it is his 18th charting track at all. His chart career only began four years ago. So he still has some steam left.
The Strumbellas in opposite had their first single Spirits rising 18–23 in its tenth chart week.
Also Enrique Iglesias is on the rise. Duele el corazon stops at #20. It is the highest entry coming from Spain since ... ehm past years El Perd#on recorded by Nicky Jam & Enrique Iglesias :-)


Disturbed's take on The Sound Of Silence bounces around the list. This week it reaches a new peak at #34 after jumping 22 places.

Further Gainers
jonas blue's second single Perfect Strangers enters the upper half of the list by rising 14 places to #46 in its seventh chart week.
Sucker For Pain from the Suicide Squad soundtrack makes a 11 places move to #47 and gives leading artist lil Wayne his first top50 appearance since four years. Also collaborating Imagine Dragons had a two years break while Ty Dolla $ign already has his third top 50 hit this year alone.
Alvaro Soler leaps 17 places to #50 with Sofia and takes 12 places to land at #51 with The Final Song.

With only 58 productions involving Europeans the continent again dips to a new low peak. The country with biggest presence still are the USA with 35 productions–it is not as much as we had some years ago–followed by Germany with 20 (although a very low result), Great Britain with 14 and Canada with 11 tracks.
