Man of the week is French DJ David Guetta. OK – his fresh album Nothing But The Beat did not storm to Number 1 – it stalled at Number 2 keeping the top spot free for the rockers of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. At the singles’ market the picture looks completely different. As media control reports David Guetta has this recent week 9 tracks inside the Top 100. Last week we counted six tracks – and that was amazing. Now he is the one and only living artist having that much tracks listed in one single week. Only Michael Jackson got post mortem for eight weeks more tracks simultanously in the survey.
Between the nine Guetta songs four are new: most cherrypicked track is Without You featuring Usher that lands at 12 – that track probably has best prospects for released as a full single as well. Further down the list we find Turn Me On feat. Nicki Minaj at 35, Crank It Up feat. Akon at 43 and I Can Only Imagine feat. Chris Brown & Lil Wayne at 72.
The highest new entry of the week is another holiday party track. But it brings kind of a deja vu effect. One Night In Ibiza by Mike Candys & Evelyn Ft. Patrick Miller heavily milks the formula of Welcome To St. Tropez from DJ Antoine vs Timati feat. Kalenna. Probably the completely Swiss team around Mike Candys had a few parties too much with the sound of their colleague DJ Antoine. Mike Candys aka Michael Kull could have had the chance for creating an own style. He produces music for several years – the really big success so far did not happen, but 2011 looks quite good with first hits even outside Switzerland.
Evelyn is much more a star in Switzerland. She won the Popstars casting in 2001 making her one of the four TERAs girls. Together they had four hits – two of them inside the Swiss Top 10. After the group broke up, Evelyn started her solo career collaborating with DJ Tatana and competing for participation at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011. Together with Mike Candys she gained her first hits under her own name – finally in Germany too.
A complete newby is Patrick Miller. Working as DJ, producer and singer he is successfull especially as the owner of the label Vogue Records and a recording studio in Kenia.
Oops – I forgot to tell you: the Top 3 is still the same as 7 days ago. Marlon Roudete is leading the pack …
