It is the second week for Swedish AVICII at the top of the German list. Exactly one year ago there was the last Number one coming from that Scandinavian country. It was LYKKE LI's I Follow Rivers that had a five weeks run at the very top. In between we had Icona Pop challenging to number 3 with I Love It and of course the last single of the Swedish House Mafia Don't You Worry Child peaking at number 12. Adding Loreen's Eurovision winning song Euphoria to that survey Sweden is the most successful European country besides Great Britain to launch pop music in Germany.
Back to Top 10 status James Arthur now delivers one of the three singles spending more than 13 weeks inside the Top 10. It joins Can't Hold Us by Macklemore X Ryan Dalton (14 times) and Scream & Shout by will.i.am & Britney Spears (17 times only in 2013).
Highest new entry is Stress ohne Grund by German rappers Shindy & Bushido. The song is accompanied by a scandal as the lyrics contain defamations of people of the public life in Germany. Some of them reported an offence to the law. The track (and the album by Shindy containing it) were indexed a week after its release. Of course the scandal did fire demand so Stress ohne Grund lands at number 19 - highest position for a track by Bushido since two years and a peak for newcomer Shindy's career.
