It is week number 4 at the top for will.i.am &Britney Spears and their hit Scream & Shout.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Wanz now reach the Top 10 in Germany also. Thrift Shop lands at number 8 and it is worth mentioning that the track is purchased only via their own independent label. I would call it a ray of future which shines through the list these days.

Swiss DJ Antoine has released a new album calling Sky Is The Limit which storms to number 6 at the album charts. The title track is the highest new entry at number 15 this week in the singles list although it is not scheduled for a release as a single itself. Additionally official single Bella Vita reaches the list at number 37 and a third track called House Party (feat. B-Case & U-JEAN) lands at number 94.

Rihanna’s next single Stay enters the Top 20 and is on the way to become her 19th Top 10 hit. The release as CD single is scheduled for February 15th.

TV soap Berlin - Tag und Nacht causes a next hit. It is the title song that now enters at number 32. So far only character/actor Ole (ohne Kohle) had a short chart success last summer (the numerous regular pop hits supported by using them in the backround are not counted here).

DSDS fever starts – on 26th and 30th January the recall shows were aired. Big winner was the group with Wincent Weiß. They performed Wie soll ein Mensch das ertragen originally recorded by Philipp Poisel. That version climbs to number 41 this week again and gives the track the highest rank achieved since last September.
Also the candidates performing Idiot were successful – the original by Michell & Matthias Reim re-enters after a two years break. (By the way: Matthias Reim just released his new album making the track Einsamer Stern flying to number 49).
Finally French Laura Kleinas got some fans – the song performed by her In Love With The World finds its way in the list.
