After four weeks there is a new number one in Germany. A straight one. Again. Prayer in C is the fourth song starting its chart run direct at the Top–a feat last seen in autumn 2011.
The artist in question already had a number 1 this current year: Robin Schulz the DJ and producer right now starts becoming a superstar. His remix of a song originally recorded by French Lilly Wood & The Prick continues his remix of Mr Probz' Waves–a next deep house no.1.
With Robin Schulz at the Top German productions are most successful in 2014. It is the third song officially credited to a German artist but the fifth if one count the men behind the scenes. Compared to other years the result now matches 2012 when there were three German number 1s too but falls short of 2009 when we had four proper no.1 hits credited to German artists plus one which was penned and produced by two Germans.
For France it is the first time since 2000 that French artists/productions can climb to number 1 in Germany two years in a row.
This chart issue covers sales from 6th of June to 12th of June. It is the week when the FIFA WM started. The big anticipation can be seen as the football anthems start to perform stronger inside the list. Best performing We Are One by Pitbull Feat. Jennifer Lopez & Cláudia Leitte lands at number 7 now.
With a full CD release behind also Stefan Raab sees his song Wir kommen, um ihn zu holen flying to number 43.
With a new released version–a duet with country singer Jennifer Nettles–All Of Me by John Legend reaches a new peak. The track goes 23–18 in its 18th chart week. Anyway it is a weak performance compared to the number 1 positions the track achieved all over the world.
Every week a TV story: it is Verstehen Sie Spass that can support a song with a broad airing presence on Saturday 7th of June. Rea Garvey staged with Can't Say No and gives the single a final sales boost: 20 places better than last week means number 50.
