27th of Feb 15: Best British Female Since Adele

It is the second week at number 1 for Ellie Goulding and her Love Me Like You Do.
The last British female having a two weeks run at the Top was Adele with her breakthrough Rolling In The Deep in February 2011.


ApeCrime gets its biggest hit to date by charting with Alles was ich hab at number 12. It is the fourth chart hit of the trio.
Cologne BRINGS also celebrate a career peak by getting their Polka Polka Polka up to number 19. It is their 15th chart single in a 24 years long chart presence. Since 2004 the band enters the charts yearly in carneval season.

After almost 20 years of abstinence from the single's list Annie Lennox returns with her contribution to the Fifty Shades Of Grey score. It is a fascinating take on the classic I Put A Spell On You first recorded in 1956 by Screamin' Jay Hawkins.
The song already charted three times in Germany. The best performing version is the one by Bryan Ferry peaking at number 53 in 1993.

With the release of his new no.1 album CCN III German Bushido also gets 12 tracks in the list. The highest comes in at no 43. 12 tracks in one single week – that's impressive of course but still far away from the result of Kollegah who launched 18 tracks in one week in May 2014. Also in other statistics Bushido fails of becoming a record setter. With 34 chart entries within this current decade he still ranges behind David Guetta who already collected 36 entries. The all time survey sees the rapper as the best German act with 56 different chart entries. This result is no.3 behind Madonna (61 entries) and Peter Alexander (81 entries).
Well–one survey sees Bushido taking the crown. He is now the artist with most consecutive chart entries missing the top 10. Since 2010 there were 30 tracks appearing in the list but failing of becoming real hits.

Bushido is one of the reasons why there are 38 German productions inside the list–31 of them are in German.
