August 28th 15: Continuous Summer Laziness

It is still Robin Schulz who grabs the singles chart crown. Sugar feat. Francesco Yates holds firm for a third week at the top spot. Seems this one is the summer hit 2015 although it has some way to go for beating the early summer smash of Felix Jaehn Feat. Jasmine Thompson Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better) that had an eight weeks #1 run.

A week before the release of its new album Beauty Behind The Madness Canadian The Weeknd reaches a new career peak inside the singles list by getting his Can't Feel My Face stopping at #16. With an eight places leap the singer gets his second top 20 hit. The first one Earned It stopped at position 17 earlier this year.

Youtube selfmade singer Joel Brandestein serves with Grenzenlos the highest new entry landing at #20. It is the first proper CD single release of the singer who started his career with cover versions of popular songs published at his channel. Last December he first gained chart success with Diese Liebe. The new song falls only two places short from the result nine months back, which prooves the ability of the net community to launch new stars besides of comedian acts like Y-Titty, ApeCrime or Die Lochis.

It is that arrival which makes German productions having a new presence inside the Top 20. 11 out of 20 coming from Germany, 8 of them are in German.


On #55 Roland Kaiser & Maite Kelly re-enter with their Warum hast du nicht nein gesagt. Since late January this year the song appears again and again for some single weeks on the list. This time it is the fourth entry caused by a bigger presence of Roland Kaiser over the past weeks. Beginning of August he staged four times(!) in Dresden at the Kaisermania concerts yearly celebrated there. More than 50.000 visitors live and 500.000 on TV followed the shows, Ten days ago his appearance on the criminal movie Summ Summ Summ was aired again, and of course the summer discofox fever is on its height right now – so Warum hast du nicht nein gesagt lands at its highest peak so far giving Roland Kaiser his biggest chart entry since 1988.

As we are on the field of schlager: Helene Fischer right now eclipses the record of UNHEILIG's Geboren um zu leben which was so far the single with the longest consecutive chart run of this current decade. Now Atemlos durch die Nacht joins it with 94 consecutive weeks. The song only has three weeks to go for becoming the longest consecutive running hit of all times as Heavy Cross by gossip holds this title since four years.
