13th of June:

It is the fourth week at the Top for CRO and his hit Traum. The single already achieved gold status–all that without having a proper video in rotation which is now released.

Traum already is the fourth single in 2014 that spends at least four weeks at the Top. And it is the first straight number 1 hit doing so since autumn 2011 when Rihanna & Calvin Harris had their We Found Love new released. Actually this single had not a continuous number 1 ride. Twice another nr.1 interrupted the success. So one might count Marlon Roudette as the real predecessor of a straight number 1 with at least four weeks at the Top. New Age started its chart career on September 2nd 2011 and held firm for eight consecutive weeks.

Still on the rise Canadian Keisza enters the Top5. Now Hideaway is the best performing Canadian production since two years when Carly Rae Jepsen infected the world with her intriguing Call Me Maybe.

Ed Sheeran returns with Sing into the Top10. The young star was present in Germany due to his performance as a juror within the show Keep Your Light Shining. Although the new casting format fails completely there was enough audience to propel the singer once again.

Rising 21–13 Jason Derulo enters the Top20 the first time after his no.1 single Talk Dirty. Accompanying Snoop Dogg was last seen inside the top20 in February 2012.

And another long absent star is back inside the Top20. The talk is about Michael Jackson whose posthumously released Love Never Felt So Good lands at number 18 this week giving him the highest position since three and a half year. The single version of the song features Justin Timberlake who missed the Top 20 for about a year.

Highest new entry comes in at number 22. It is West Coast the first single by Lana del Rey from her upcoming album Ultraviolence and it is the highest place the singer can achieve since her no.4 single Summertime Sadness back in summer 2012.

Well–Sing meinen Song again helps songs into the list. Most liked Hört, Hört by Xavier Naidoo.
More surprising is the fact that a song from the Eurovision Contest can make it into the list a full month after the spectacle took place. Ruth Lorenzo from Spain got the 10th place in Copenhagen with her song Dancing In The Rain. In the week reflecting the sales effect the song wasn't seen in the German list. Now it is. Why?–Tanja Szewczenko and Willi Gabalier chose the track as one of their final dances within the show Let's Dance which propels the recording to number 54. It is the 14th song of the annual contest–the biggest impact for the event ever seen in its whole history.
