Marlon Roudette holds firm at number 1 with the ballad New Age. It is the third consecutive week and he now as a solo artist matches the result achieved in 2006 as part of duo Mattafix. This recent week his debut album Matter Fixed enters the album list at number 6 – a feat never reached with his former project. To tell some more stories: Marlon Roudette is the first British act staying at number 1 for at least three weeks since late 2009. Back than Robbie Williams brought Bodies to top the singles’ list for four weeks.
A second track from the original Soundtrack of the Matthias Schweighöfer movie What A Man enters the German list this recent issue. It is the title track performed by Lena. The song had a chart career already 17 years ago when the version of Salt’n’Pepa with En Vogue hit the charts and climbed to number 39. The newly recorded version is far and away the most popular by entering directly at number 21. The original sung by Linda Lyndell never reached the charts here.
Rising one place to number 2 MAROON 5 Featuring Christina Aguilera reach a new peak with Moves Like Jagger. MAROON 5 already had been announced having their biggest hit for all times. Christina Aguilera by now enters a position last seen in 2006 with her single Hurt.
Highest new entry is a so far download only track. It is the first lift from Sean Paul’s upcoming yet untitled album which is announced for early 2012. Got 2 Luv U is the first single of the artist touching the Top 10 since We Be Burnin’ climbed to number 5 in autumn 2005. In his whole 9 years long chart career Sean Paul only collected 4 Top 10 hits. Entering the survey at number 9 this week the star seems back to known power. Let’s wait till the full CD release at 16th September will have effect of the list .
Got U Love U features guest vocals by Alexis Jordan – one of the new comers of the year. She oddly missed the upper ranks with her debut Happiness -– to me one of the most catching pop songs this year. Alongside Sean Paul she finally becomes a hit singer. Whether she can stand alone and gain hits is a question for the future.
