It is the sixth week at the top for Adele's Hello and the song now matches the result of Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do in February/March this year. That song made chart history as it was the most longest number 1 by a British female artist since 1967. Adele now is on the way of eclipsing that feat in next weeks time.
At #2 Glas-Perlen-Spiel spends an eighth week with Geiles Leben. It is now the longest holding #2 song since 2009 when Cassandra Steen feat. Adel Tawil managed same run with Stadt.
There are two songs new inside the top 10. First one lands at #9 in the face of Show Me Love which is the new single of Robin Schulz. Accompanied singer here is British J.U.D.G.E.. It is the fourth top 10 hit for Robin Schulz in 2015 alone which makes him the most successful act of the year.
The second is the highest new entry at all. Comedia Jan Böhmermann launched a song called Ich hab Polizei which became a viral success leading to the artist's very first chart entry at all. POL1Z1STENS0HN sits pretty at #10.
At #13 German band Silbermond gots his first top 20 hits since three years. Leichtes Gepäck truly got steam by the release of the band's same titled new album which lands at #4 on the album's list this current week. So far both album and single perform under what predecessors achieved.
Another German band project lands at #18 in the face of Annen May Kantereit. The three have their first hit with Oft gefragt. So there are eight German productions inside the top 20.
Finally Drake made it to top 20 status with Hotline Bling. It is only his first solo single performing that high. More than four years ago he peaked at #12 as featured artist on Rihanna's single What's My Name.
His entry to the top 20 gives Canadian acts a new hiatus: Right now there are six songs involving Canadians inside. An all time high. The highest one still is Justin Bieber at #4 with Sorry.
A further song rising up the list: The new song of Major Lazer Light It Up gains 29 places landing at #31 in its fourth chart week.
And yes, it is pre Christmas time. So there is the most popular Christmas carol back in the list Last Christmas by Wham!. It starts its 20th chart run at position #32 which is quite high. Only once, in December 2004 the song started its annual chart run higher. Back than it re-entered at #24 and peaking at #18 four weeks later.
The second modern Christmas classic comes from Mariah Carey. All I Want For Christmas Is You also re-enters unusually high at #45. The song never started its annual chart run that strong. Given that it made its all time peak this year in January at #17 perspectives are quite good that it will rise this season even further.
And down at #89 also Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming) by Melanie Thornton is back. This song shows a typical performance so far.
The story of the week comes from German rapper alligatoah. His second album Musik ist keine Lösung missed the number 1 spot clearly due to Helene Fischer and Adele both strong selling their albums. Though the rapper can launch a bunch of single tracks inside the track charts. Leader of the pack is Denk an die Kinder that lands at #38 and now is the second highest performance of the rapper at all. Of course one might mention his appearance as a member of Trailerpark with whom he had some similar chart success too.
All in all there are seven album tracks charting the list. That feat is short behind Justin Bieber and Adele of the two past weeks.
alligatoah increases the number of German productions to 39 which is the highest number in years.
