Chart Flash 11-22: Fraser – JEDWARD – Bourani

It is the third week for recent superstar winner Pietro Lombardi at the top of the German chart. He now joins the club of last two year’s winners Mehrzad Marashi and Daniel Schuhmacher.

Highest new entry is a song by Brooke Fraser from New Zeeland. Something In The Water is a calm and romantic song fitting perfectly the recent trend of young women singing about the easy life.

Finally JEDWARD arrives. The track Lipstick now is listed for the chart – the physical single followed on 30th May according to amazon / 3rd of June according to mix1.de – it will count for next week’s chart respectively the week after. It is so far the highest ranked song of the contest that can gain an official chart place also. In Düsseldorf it became number 8. – Probably the winner song by Ell & Nikki will chart also … prospections of a good rank are minimal.

Highest German new entry is Nur in meinem Kopf (Only In My Head) by newcomer Andreas Bourani. According to some pages he is the new big hope of German music business. His company UNIVERSAL finally tried „new“ ways of promotion: His video is also available at youtube. Most of UNIVERSAL artists are blocked here. Entering the charts at number 16 it seems the right step.

The song itself is a very positive poprock track praising the joy and phantasy in life. It follows directly the sound of artists like Adel Tawil or Clueso – for latter one Andreas Bourani was the warm up act.
