Germany has a new number 1. Safe And Sound rises 7–1 and makes Capital Cities the second new act this current year that reach the Top with the first single. Of course Capital Cities have some support by a TV commercial campaign of mobile company vodafone. The release of the single is scheduled for May 17th–so we should be aware having the song for some further weeks ranking as the best selling one.

Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke feat. T.I. + Pharrell is on the way to become a massive hit. So far not listed at the main download portals the track jumps 56–27 in its 3rd chart week. Switzerland already reports an impressive number 5–so there are much more success to come in Germany too.

The Voice Kids is the casting show that this week supports most some hits. First of all Lights originally recorded by Ellie Goulding gets some new power after the song was one of the battles on April 26th. Second song profiting from the performances is Beneath Your Beautiful by Labrinth Feat. Emeli Sande. It re-enters at number 42.
Also Miriam Bryant re-enters with Finders Keepers. Her song had a single chart appearance at the tail end last year. Now it shots to number 46 reaching a not expected peak.
Other winner is Bruno Mars and his Locked Out Of Heaven.
And really surprising: some tracks rise allthough they were performed a week before. Aitziber’sperformance of In Love With The World generates some new demand and propells the song back to the list at number 56, Judith’s song from a week before Call Me Maybe makes a jump 96–64 and I Won’t Let You Go by James Morrison also rises 76–65.

DSDS only can help Angel by Sarah McLachlan to number 60 after Lisa Wohlgemuth performed the song.


Very slowly the next Justin Bieber single catches fire. An official release date so for not was reported but All Around The World rises on album downloads alone up to number 53 this current week.

Also slowly the single from Thirty Seconds To Mars Up In The Air rises again. It now profits from the freshly released video clip.

A slow burner also is Pompeii by Bastille. Released in February the track now rises up the list reaching number 71 this week.

After his album The Day You Live Forever was released Ryan Sheridan also gains a single hit. Jigsaw enters at number 72 as digital album cut.


A statistical fact at last: This current week ist the one which gives will.i.am a 45th appearance in the list in 2013 alone. So now he matches the result of German rapper CRO so far. Hard on the heels of both follows Emeli Sandé who falls only one appearance short. As we right now count the 19th chart week of 2013 it means all of the three acts had at least two tracks inside the list in every single week of the year.
