After seven weeks we do have a new number 1. And it is again a straight one like the six predecessors before. We now celebrate the 100th new entry at number 1 in Germany and the honour goes to The Avener a French producer and DJ with his take on Fade Out Lines. Additionally The Avener is the fourth act this year that starts its chart career directly at the top.
Almost not worth mentioning The Avener is the third French act that reaches the Top in 2014 which eclipses the result of 2013 when French acts set a new record after 26 years. According to the number 1 statistic French acts are as successful as USAmericans. Only acts coming from Germany right now perform better.
Another story besides? Well–since late March all number 1s were European productions. It is this the 29th consecutive week. Sounds like a record too but is no. Starting in late September 1994 there were 10 European acts that spent a whole 40 consecutive weeks at the Top of the German charts. So we have another 11 weeks to go.
