Hot Spot 02-22-13

We witness Scream & Shout at number 1 for a sixth week. The track now matches the result of the best performing single by Britney Spears so far, … Baby One More Time. The debut single spent six weeks at the top in Germany almost exactly 14 years ago.
And also will.i.am now matches with the current number 1 single his best performance at the top so far – it was Shut Up by his band The Black Eyed Peas which occupied the top spot in 2003/04 for six weeks.
Will both together go a week further this time?

Macklemore & Ryan Wilson feat. Wanz climb to number 3 with their Thrift Shop. In Switzerland the track this week reached Number 1.

It is just a week to go for the full release of Rihanna’s next Single Stay on CD. But the track steadily rises and this current week reaches number 5. It is her 19th Top 10 hit at all and the 10th alone in this decade. Eight of these ten song reached the Top 5.

On the way up DJ Antoine wants to become the next David Guetta. His current single Bella Vita is rising to number 15 matching now the peak of Sky Is The Limit – the title track of his current album not released as a single yet. Number 15 is the highest position so far since his 2012 smash hit Ma chérie hit number 6.

Probably the first German act on the field of Northern Soul is Leslie Clio. After her first chart entry Told You So in summer last year she now returns with I Couldn’t Care Less which is choosen for backgrounding the new Ford Fiesta Campaign. The spot lifts the song up to numberr 31 – a new peak for the artist.

It is carnival time in the list. DJ Ötzi’s new single Wie ein Komet is entering the list at number 33 – it is the highest seasonal song followed closely by Andreas Gaballier and his recording of I sing a Liad für di. Also Mickie krause takes a leap with his song Nur noch Schuhe an.
Also new is Cat Ballou with Et jitt kein Wood and Kasalla finally can reach the upper half with their Pirate for the first time. The song entered the list for the very first time one year ago.
