Nov 13th 15: If the Top 6 stands still

It is the third week at the top for Adele's Hello and by this her longest nr.1 runner at all. In 2015 she is half on the way for getting the honor of being the best performing female solo artist. So far it is Ellie Goulding who had an impressive six weeks run an the top in February and March with Love Me Like You Do. - That's so far of the number 1 story.

At #2 for the fifth consecutive week there is Glas-Perlen-Spiel with Geiles Leben. Also this song marks the most successful chart entry for its recording act.
Down to #6 there is no change at all–it is the fourth time in 2015 that we see the very top calm like this.

At #7 we have the first entry to the top 10. It is Swedish newcomer Zara Larsson with Lush Life that extends her success to the German speaking countries. In Britain it is the collaboration with MNEK Never Forget You that caused her first top 5 appearance at all. Latter song slowly also climbs up the German list stopping at #59 this current week.
Zara Larsson is already the fourth Swedish act in 2015 that can invade the German Top 10.

At #9 Ellie Goulding enters the list with her recent single On My Mind. It is her third top 10 appearance in 2015 and her third consecutive top 10 hit as main artist. In between of course she had other entries not entering the first ten places. As mentioned above she is the best performing female solo artist of now. The new single clearly benefits from the release of her album Delirium.

With the start of the new James Bond movie Spectre also the title track Writing's On The Wall by Sam Smith gets some more attention. The song jumps 52–17 in its sixth chart week. It is the peak position for the song so far and Sa Smith's highest appearance since May 2014.

The highest new entry sits at #19. It is Coldplay with a new offering called Adventure Of A Lifetime. This 18th chart entry of the British band was produced by Norwegian Stargate who already had their hands on chart hits like Break The Rules (Charli XCX) and Worth It (Fifth Harmony) in 2015.

Next season of The Voice of Germany is aired since mid Octobre. Now there are first visible effects on the survey. Georg Stengel was the favourite for a lot of watchers. His version on Wolke 4 propelled the original by Philipp Dittberner & Marv 22 places up the list stopping at #42 in its 43rd chart week. It is the highest position since mid September. Georg Stengel himself did not have that much luck. His performance was his last for this season.

Another strange gainer is at #71. The Hanging Tree by James Newton Howard can attract some more listeners as the world premiere of Mocking Bird Part II was celebrated in Berlin a week ago. The hit from the predecessor can gain the highest appearance since end of August.


Album of the week ist CLA$$IC by Bushido & Shindy. The title track lands as highest track of the collection at #62. Besides this only two further tracks made a position in the single's list. Compared to earlier album starts that result is quite weak. Although he is the German act with most chart entries of all times–now they count 58 credited to his name.
Compagnon Shindy this weeks enters the fifth rank of least successful acts of all times. All his 16 entries missed the Top 10–the highest Stress ohne Grund peaking at #19 in July 2013.
Also the new release of Kollegah can't impress. Genozid lands as low as #73. Well–it is his peak position in 2015 and far and away of the heights he reached a year ago.
