Story number one: Katy Perry is not Nr.1. Jason Derulo Feat. 2 Chainz is.

After Superstar winner Beatrice Egli and German raop idol CRO Jason Derulo is the third act in 2013 who can enter the list direct at number 1. Coincidently exactly one year ago we too had a straight number 1 entry with Lila Wolken by Marteria • Yasha • Miss Platnum.

Sliding one place AVICII is no longer the champion of the charts. Instead his album True enters the album list at number 5 and propels five tracks into the singles list. There are Wake me up! at number 2, Hey Brother new at number 24, You Make Me rising 49–40, Addicted To You new at number 71 and LE7ELS re-entering at number 88. The Swedish DJ is only the third act invading the survey with five tracks simultanously. Before that feat were done only by CRO and will.i.am.


More Top 20 action:
Martin Garrix goes Top 5 with Animals. He falls only one rank short to eclipse the success of last Dutch Top 10 act Caro Emerald from the year 2011.

French Woodkid stops his Run Boy Run at number 11 after it is heavily promoted by its use for a vodafone TV commercial. It's the highest rank the artist achieved ever.

The Imagine Dragons launch their third Top 20 hit in Germany with On Top Of The World. It goes up to number 13 this current week. They got big support by their opening concert for the New Pop Festival 2013 in Baden Baden. The event was broadcasted on TV and the internet.

Miley Cyrus rises with Wrecking Ball which lands at number 16 and matching the success of We Can't Stop from last week. It is the highest rank so far for the artist.

And also Family of the Year enters the Top 20 with the song Hero that can reach number 19.


German productions sliding down in popularity. Highest German song is Das kann uns keiner nehmen by Revolverheld which comes in at number 17. That's the lowest result since start of May when Sido's Bilder im Kopf were slowly fading away and landing at number 18.

But there is some hope a few places lower. New German rap star Alligatoah sees his long sleeper Willst du staedily rising. This week it climbs to number 20.


Last story this week: With 15 new entries the list reaches the third highest amount of new songs in one week. Only the issues March 1st (19 new entries) and the one May 31st (24 new entries) looked newer this year.
