Klingande is back at number 1.

Adel Tawil follows at number 2. It is the fifth single presenting the singer as an main artist. And it is the fourth in a row that can reach at least number 2. It's an impressive result for 35 years old man.

Rihanna enables her 20th Top 10 hit by The Monster charting at number 7. It is the 169th times that a song featuring Rihanna as a main artist is listed inside the Top 10. That amount eclipses the result of Queen of Pop Madonna. So next week we eventually can crown a new all time queen.
Collaborating partner of the queen - EMINEM - so far has a 15th Top 10 hit under his belt collecting 97 weeks inside the German Top 10.

Supported by the success of the new single and a week before the full album release also digital single Survival gets a boost rising 20 places to number 32. Let's wait a further week - than the fastest music buyers already had the chance to get the album. It could propel the singles much further.


Aloe Blacc rises with his recording of Wake Me Up. It reaches number 42 in its second chart week.

The death of a big artist always brings his most famous songs back to the charts. On 27th of October Lou Reed died. Probably one of the most creative and influencing musician the 21st century has seen his fame as a producer of (commercial and mainstream) hits is quite not existing. But anyone would know for sure his tune Walk On The Wild Side which right now can enter the singles' charts for the very first time and gives the artist his debut on this survey. A mere Nr 67 only reflects the situation of his whole career.

Another classic tune charts for the 71st time this week. It is Nothing Else Matters by Metallica that by now enters the Top 20 of the most appearing songs of all times. The record so far is held by Paul & Fritz Kalkbrenner and their anthem Sky And Sand which collected unbelievable 128 weeks inside the survey.
