Summer laziness is definitely over. Again Germany celebrates a new Number 1. It is Marlon Roudette who enters the list directly at the top. It is only the second Number 1 hit starting his chart run right at the highest possible position. Last one that did so was Call My Name by Superstar winning Pietro Lombardi back in May. Last year we also only had two instant chart topper – the year before there were 7 and in 2008 eight. What we are really witnessing is a slowing down of the charts. The big hit right away from the start is what it should be – a special feat.
The recent track in question calls New Age and is the main track of the new Matthias Schweighöfer movie What A Man that was premiered last weekend and instantly topped the German movie charts. It is a soft and romantic ballad – matching the recent taste of German music buyers. The soundtrack was choosen by the director and actor himself and includes a very surprising collection. German acts like Lena and Philip Poisel appear at the track list like Booka Shade or Ben L’Oncle Soul.
Marlon Roudette by the way is no unknown to the charts and to Number One. As one half of the duo Mattafix he topped the German charts in early 2006 with Big City Lights. The track spend three weeks at number one and 15 weeks inside the Top 10. It got number 7 within the chart of the year 2006.
Also new according to media controls press release from tuesday are Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera with Moves Like Jagger at number 3. In most of the weeks this year that would be the highest new entry. Not so this very moment. Finally the business is back alive.
