No change at the Top. It is still Ellie Goulding and her anthem Love Me Like You Do that rules the sales and airplays list. The British charts that are published a bit faster just this current week see the song dipping to number 2 after four weeks at the top–that might be the first sign of weakness of the song. So far it still tops the daily German iTunes list.
More historical is the 5–3 rise of FourFive Seconds recorded by Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney. It is now the best performing single of the American rapper. So far the collaboration with Estelle American Boy held that crown by peaking at number 5 in 2008. Also Paul McCartney has reason to celebrate. It is his first appearance inside the Top3 since 1992 when Hope Of Deliverance stopped exactly at number 3.
With Paul McCartney charting alongside Kanye West at number 65 we have another historical moment. All Day is the 81st chart hit that has Paul McCartney somehow involved. The list contains 41 singles recorded by The Beatles, 15 by Wings, 23 under his own name and the Band Aid singles of 1984 and 2004 on which he also appeared. 82 chart entries–that's one more than Austrian singer Peter Alexander collected under his belt. Of course Mr. Alexander released all the entries under his own artist name. It's your decision what to count as more substantial.
Next typical deep house track arrives at number 9. Wolke 4 was released by Philipp Dittberner & Marv and enters the Top 10 in its 7th week.
Highest new entry is the 37th chart hit for grönemeyer. His new single is called Fang mich an.
Revolverheld finds some more friends due to the appearance of singer Johannes Strate on The Voice of Germany Kids which has fantastic viewer rates since the new season started in January and even overtakes long time leader Deutschland sucht den Superstar. Additionally on February 28th Revolverheld was announced as nominee for two categories of the ECHO award in March. As an effect Ich lass für dich das Licht an re-enters at number 67 and Las uns gehen at number 76. It is the 51st resp. 30th chart week of the songs.
First effects of upcoming Eurovision Song Contest appear inside the list. The national qualifying show was aired on Thursday 5th of March. Already while the show was going on a lot of people downloaded the most convincing songs. Leading the pack of course is later winner Andreas Kümmert with Heart Of Stone landing at number 84 after two hours of sale.
Surprising is the result of Alexa Feser who lands at number 87 with Glück. She made it into the semi final of the qualifying with that song. Then she staged with another song (Das Gold von morgen)and failed.
