July 24th 15: Third Act Achieving Second No.1 in 2015

Deep house beats Raop as Lost Frequencies Feat. Janieck Devy change places with CRO. So the new #1 is Reality–probably the coolest track for summer 2015.

By switching to #1 Lost Frequencies becomes the third act in 2015 with two no.1 hits. First we had Ellie Goulding managing the double in February followed by Felix Jaehn who entered the top in May for a second time. And now the Belgian DJ. He of course is the slowest act as it took him more than three months to return on top. On the other hand featured singer Janieck Devy is the fastest new name in 2015 that rose to #1. Remember it is only the fourth chart week for RealityCharlie Puth had to wait a week longer before getting the crown alongside Wiz Khalifa.

Back to the historical dimension of the moment and there is one indeed. Three acts with at least two #1 hits in one calendar year–that's a feat only seen twice in whole chart history. Back in 1977 there were ABBA, Smokie and Baccara with two #1s and Boney M serving with three. Nine years before in 1968 we had the same figure as Tom Jones, Heintje and The Beatles had two #1 hits and the Bee Gees three. So in 2015 we are still far away from such a situation although we are as close as never in between. Keep fingers crossed!

With Janieck Devy there is another Dutch singer at the German top. The last one doing so was Mr Probz back in March 2014 thanks to a deep house remix of his recording. Seems that history repeats somehow. Well–Reality is the fourth deep house #1 this current year, in 2014 we only had three...

The question now is: Who will become the biggest deep house star. With Felix Jaehn and Lost Frequencies there are two new and shiny stars on the scene. A year earlier Robin Schulz appeared and propelled the sound to absolute heights. Right now he got his latest offering on sale. Sugar starts right at #3 giving him a third top10 hit in 2015 and a fifth at all. That's so far the best statistic of all three DJs.

Alongside Robin Schulz 19 years old Canadian Francisco Yates is featured. He immediately becomes the best performing Canadian act since ... no–not Justin Bieber, but Carly Rae Jepsen. Back in early summer 2012 she landed her Call Me Maybe at #3.

Also new inside the Top 10 Ed Sheeran is. His latest single is Photograph already available for a year. Due to a remix by Felix Jaehn the original recording now lands at #8 giving the singer his third Top10 entry in 2015 and his sixth at all.

MoTrip is still on the way up. So wie du bist lands at #16 after huge download success during last week. The song still benefits from the commercial with Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Also USAmerican indie rock band Walk The Moon still rises and reaches the Top 20 with Shut Up + Dance in its 7th chart week. At #19 it is the second highest production made only by US acts.

Further down the list we find at #60 a sleeper hit as Runaway (U & I) by Swedish Galantis sets a new peak in its 17th chart week. Follow up single Peanut Butter Jelly slides 83–91 in its fourth week so far.
British-German M22 (consisting of Matt James and Frank Sanders–the latter one known as one half of the Michael Mind Project) slowly gains attention with Good To Be loved. The track steadily rises now reaching #74 in its fourth chart week.
