17th of Oct 2014:

Meghan Trainor celebrates a second week at the top with her anthem All About That Bass. It is only the second but the last time a female artist did so was back in spring 2013 when P!NK had a two weeks run at the top with Just Give Me A Reason. Of course she duetted for that song with Nate Ruess of FUN.–so half of the work probably the male singer did.
A real solo number one for at least two weeks by a female was last achieved by R(ihanna) and her Diamonds at the tall end of 2012.

The highest new entry comes from AVICII who offers a completely new track with The Days. Only once a track by him entered the German list straight at the Top 10. It was 2011 single LE7ELS which never rose further than the entry position at number 6.

It is again time for the Supertalent. The second casting show by Dieter Bohlen every year in autumn launches some short flash hits and more and more overturns the direct chart success of his classic DSDS format. The second show of the current Supertalent season boosts Austrian Andreas Gabalier back to the charts. His Amoi seg' ma uns wieder got first popularity in May this year when Xavier Naidoo staged with the song on Sing meinen Song. Back than the original charted at number 18 and spent 21 weeks inside the charts disappearing just a fortnight ago. Now a contestant chose the song on the Supertalent show and Amoi seg' ma uns wieder shoots to number 9 which is far and away the best chart place Andreas Gabalier ever achieved. Of course in his home country the singer already has a number 1 under his belt and the song reached number 3.

Tracks On The Rise
The gainer that can land highest in the list is Sun Goes Down–the new offering by Robin Schulz accompanied by Jasmine Thompson. It stops this week at number 14 right behind former No.1 hit Prayer in C. It is now the DJ's third Top20 hit in 2014.

With release of the album Strut also the latest single by Lenny Kravitz can get a sales boost. Chamber goes 31–17 giving the artist his first Top20 appearance since 2008.

Planned as the comeback of the year (or the decade?) the return of Tokio Hotel is a bit annoying. Its album Kings of Suburbia is the first one that misses number 1 in Germany. Also the single Love Who Loves You Back stalls at a very low number 38 after a respectable leap over 56 places. Probably the track will tumble down in next weeks time dramatically.

With the proper music video online (and on TV) Animals by Maroon 5 gets good support. The track goes 64–41 in its fourth chart week.
