Hot Spot 02-01-13

will.i.am &Britney Spears hang on a third week at Number 1. Britney now matches the success of her predecessor number 1 Lucky in 2000.

Icona Pop Feat. Charli XCX rise to number 3 making I Love It the most successful Swedish production since number 1 hit I Follow Rivers.

Sido goes 8–5 with In meinem Kopf which gives him a Top 5 hit for the third time in his career.

On Tour in Germany, Number 1 in Austria – CRO makes a 14–8 leap with Einmal um die Welt and reaches a new peak with this song. It is already the 24th chart week which makes the song the slowest climber since Ma Chérie reached its peak at number 6 in May last year.

Linkin Park’s Castle Of Glass still two weeks ahead the full release on CD enters the Top 10 – it is the fourth Top 10 hit of the band and follows the number 2 song Burn It Down which re-enters at number 93.


This week we do have 12 new entries and 11 re-entries – meaning it is the biggest turnover of that young year so far. So the charts get back to the speed they had at the end of 2012.

The most present artist of 2012 is starting the new year: Pitbull delivers the highest new entry with Feel This Moment at number 12. It is his 21st charting track in this decade and the 25th at all. His partner on the song Christina Aguilera also counts 25 chart hits with this entry and now spends 15 consecutive years inside the German charts. The single itself will be available on CD from February 22nd on.

With the success of Ellie Goulding’s Lights the label scheduled a re-release of the single CD for February 15th. This week the song rises 26–19 and probably this track will become her first Top 10 hit on German shores.

Also worth mentioning Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Wanz reach the Top 20 with Thrift Shop. The song still isn’t signed to a label and sells directly from the artist’s platform. That’s unbelievable and probably shows what will happen in a few years within the whole music business.

Finally Nicki Minaj’s Va Va Voom catches fire and reaches the upper half of the list.

After her performance on Wetten dass… Leona Lewis is back in the list with her last hit Trouble. So far it spent only five weeks inside the list. That’s poor for a star like Leona Lewis is.
Caligola adds one more week to the summit of its Forgive Forget after performing at the show. Now the track counts 20 chart weeks.

Rita Ora’s How We Do (Party) spends rising the last week on digital sales only . The track reaches now number 40.

Used at Dschungelcamp Philipp Poisel returns to the list with Ich will nur. It is only the fourth chart week and number 41the second highest place it ever reached.
Promoted by that success also Wie soll ein Mensch das ertragen returns to the list. The album Project Seerosenteich just reached gold status selling 100.000 copies.

AVICII VS Nicky Romero steadily rising. They reach number 44 in their third week in the list.

The release of the Django unchained soundtrack helps three songs into the list as solo tracks. First of all Anthony Hamilton can enter the survey withFreedom at number 55. Further down the list we also find the main title Django by Luis Bacalov, Rocky Roberts (by the way one of the very few Argentinian musicians who can enter the German list). And finally at number 100 there is Rick Ross with 100 Black Coffins.

The album of Kollegah & Farid Bang Jung, Brutal, Gutaussehend 2 is scheduled for February 8th. Till now there are four tracks released before. Number 4 Stiernackenkommando enters teh list this week.

A complete week after releasing the album LONG.LIVE.A$AP fully the artist’s single F**kin’ Problems returns back to the singles charts and reaches a new peak with number 86.

Carnival season is at the door: Mickie Krause sneaks through the list. Two weeks ago his Nur noch Schuhe an visited the survey at number 99 now it re-enters at 90. The peak of the song was back in August last year at number 32.
