August 14th 15: Sido's first #1


The charts are speeding up with a straight #1 single that relegates Sugar by Robin Schulz (feat. Francesco Yates) as the runners up. It is Sido who gets a straight shot to the top with his second single taken from upcoming album VII. Astronaut is the very first #1 for the rapper–so it took him complete 11 years and four months to get there. He is of course in good company with Die Ärzte, Rosenstolz, Adel Tawil, PUR and Rammstein. They all had to work wait for 10 to 12 years before they challenged the singles chart crown as a #1 act. Herbert Grönemeyer in fact did much longer. Full 18 years from his first chart entry until he set up a #1 hit. That's a tough thing.

Sido did come twice very close to the very top. In 2010 he stopped at #2 with Der Himmel soll warten (feat. Adel Tawil), in 2014 he accompanied Mark Forster on his Au Revoir which also stopped at the runners up position. Also on Rammstein Sido had some support. It is Germany's new singer darling Andreas Bourani who serves with his voice for the refrain. It is his second #1 as lone standing act–in December 14 he also joined the German Baind Aid project which also had a #1 run. Returning to #1 makes him the third #1 act of 2014 that can repeat this success in 2015. We truly witness a constance in sympathies right now.

With the arrival of Sido + Andreas Bourani there are seven entries inside the top 10 coming from Germany and four of them are in German. Inside the top 20 there are 10 German productions seven sung in German. That's quite e strong performance.


Further action inside the Top10 is minimal. Namika climbs two places with Lieblingsmensch to #4 and Calvin Harris enters #10 with his new single How Deep Is Your Love which is his fifth track entering the top 10.

The oldest song inside the Top 10 is Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better) by Felix Jaehn Feat. Jasmine Thompson that spends an 18th week there. It is now as long lasting as predecessor Cheerleader remixed by Felix Jaehn–so far the two top 10 singles with most extended run in 2015.


First big climber comes in at #14. El Perdón by Nicky Jam rises 20 ranks and gives accompanying Enrique Iglesias his highest chart entry since four years. At #20 finally Flo Rida comes in rising four further places. I Don't Like It I Love It already spends its tenth week inside the list. Now it gives featured Robin Thicke his second top20 entry at all. So far he only had a big hit with #1 Blurred Lines in 2013.

At #42 the new remix of Insomnia stops. Reworked by AVICII original act Faithless has its highest performance since March 2011.

On the album list German DJ Paul Kalkbrenner celebrates its first #1 7. Tracks from the album Cloud Rider and Feed Your Head profit from the start of the long player as they rise 55–40 resp. 99–53.
