15th of August 2014: Another Straight Number 1

David Guetta feat. Sam Martin:
Lovers on the Sun

Again Germany has a new number 1 that goes straight to the Top. The sixth time in 2014 a hit does so. - Last time as much songs entered the top directly in one year was back in 2009.
It is David Guetta's first top hit since two years when She Wolf (Falling To Pieces) and Play Hard went Top 10. And it is his second number 1 hit. Almost five years ago he first entered the top in accompanion with Akon and the song Sexy Bitch.
Yet it is the second number 1 in 2014 having a French act involved.

Since 2010 David Guetta achieved 12 top 10 hit – as much as Rihanna does in same time span – but it is "only" his 71st week inside the hot 10. Pitbull and Rihannaso far spent more weeks inside.

On the decks and drums at lovers on the sun appears Swedish superstar AVICII/Tim Bergling which gives him a third number 1. This year it is already his fifth top 10 hit. So he is so far the most successfull artist of 2014.

Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea reach a new peak at number 19 this week. It is the 15th chart week for the duo – so Problem is kind of a sleeper hit in Germany. And compared to all other countries in the world number 19 looks more or less a low position.

Much faster on the way up British Ella Henderson is. Her Ghost reaches number 20 in its third chart week. The proper CD release is scheduled for end of August. So this ain't the final peak for that song.

Gorgon City reaches the upper half of the German charts for the very first time. Here For You (feat. Laura Welsh) goes 56–48 in its sixth chart week.

Also Revolverheld's next single is on the way up. Last week Lass uns gehen entered the list at number 88. This week it stands at number 50.

Bad Chick by CRO entered the list first in late June when his album Melodie was released. Now the song is scheduled for a re-release on a EP for beginning of September. Only the announcement of that issue propells the track as an album cut back to the list. It re-enters at number 66 which is the peak position so far.

Slowly catching fire Don't Tell'em by Jeremih feat. YG goes 83–71. The song is already the fifth week inside the charts. Most infecting probably is the reduced beat by DJ Mustard which already made his production Show Me a medium hit spending 31 weeks in the list.

Best sold album of the week comes from the Beatsteaks. The big demand also helps their current single Gentleman of the Year back to the singles list. It re-enters at number 72 falling only short behind its first appearance eight weeks ago at number 66.

At number 79 a song approaches the record of most weeks inside the charts. Sonnentanz by Austrian Klangkarussell spends a 101st week in the list which is the fifth best result of all times. In this current decade it is the third best. Only Geboren um zu leben by UNHEILIG and–of course–Sky and Sand by Paul & Fritz Kalkbrenner so far have more weeks under their belts.
With Angus & Julia Stone charting at number 94 another Australian act enters the list. It is the sixth act from that continent–well a month ago there were eight Australian acts inside the list. Best performing at this moment Iggy Azalea is thanks to her colaboration with Ariana Grande. Anyway Grizzly Bear can enter due to the release of the full Angus & Julia album which is in shelves since 1st of August.
