It is week number six for Meghan Trainor and her All About That Bass at the Top of Germany's singles charts which makes her the act with the third longest stay at the upper end of the list in 2014. Still she has the opportunity to become the longest during ride in 2014–there are only three weeks to go.
Highest new entry and the only new inside the Top 10 comes in at number 6 in the face of UNHEILIG's Zeit zu gehen. It is the album announcing single and the start for the Good bye tour of the artist. So far it is his sixth Top 10 hit, two of them gained number 2: Geboren um zu leben in 2010 and So wie du warst in 2012. The statistics of the current decade count him as the second most successful German act. Number 1 by now is rapper CRO.
With the arrival of Calvin Harris' album Motions in shelves also his current singles rise up the survey. Leading the pack is Blame at number 5. The biggest jump is taken by the nasty Open Wide (feturing Big Sean) which goes 67–22, Outside (feat. Ellie Goulding) climbs 24 places to number 25. And even Summer can gain 10 places sitting pretty at number 60.
The album doesn't perform that well in Germany. Number 2 in Britain and Switzerland and a number 5 in the US stand in sharp contrast to the number 20 new entry on the German list. Anyway it is the highest position a Calvin Harris album ever achieved here.
On Friday the 31st of October the first battle round of The Voice of Germany was aired. Of course again songs interpreted by contestants appear in the list again. The biggest impact made a battle on show number 2 (aired on Thursday 6th of November): Philipp Leon Altmeyer and Dominik Oberwallner + Moritz Häußinger were the contestants who interpreted Wolke 7. The original recorded by Max Herre feat. Philipp Poisel returns to the list after three hours of online sales at number 33. It is the highest rank the track achieves since its original chart run in late summer/autumn 2012. And I guess that's not yet all we've seen.
Other songs getting a sales boost are:
- I See Fire by Ed Sheeran goes 47–36 in its 48th chart week
- Du bist das Licht by Gregor Meyle after performed by Philipp Leon Altmeyer on the Blind audition show on 30th October – number 69 is a new peak for the song taken from the 2012 album Meile für Meyle
- Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis re-enters at number 81 after a nine months absence
- Love Never Felt So Good by Michael Jackson re-entering number 83. In fact the iTunes list reports the version with Justin Timberlake much more downloaded than the solo take
- Shot Me Down by David Guetta feat Skylar Grey re-enters at 98
Way Up The Charts
Swedish AronChupaß sees his I'm An Albatraoz rising up the survey. A week before the official release of the single the track goes 74–35.
George Ezra's new single Blame It On Me rises 19 places to number 61 in its third chart week. In Belgium and Britain the song is treated as a proper release with individual art work and promotion. I found no information about such an exposure for the German speaking countries.
The upcoming single by Ed Sheeran Thinking Out Loud is scheduled for 28th of November as an alone standing release. Already now the track rises up the survey to number 62 in its third chart week by sales as an album cut track.
