March 25th 16: Alan Walker Becomes Most Successful Norwegian Act

It is the seventh consecutive week at the very top for Alan Walker and his chart debut Faded which means never before a Norwegian act spent as long at no.1 in Germany. Neither a-ha nor Marit Larsen (both had a five weeks run) nor plastic project Aqua (six weeks). And as the new midweek chart issue predicts Alan Walker will be the top of all songs next week also.

Also #2 and #3 are glued at their position. It is this a fifth week in a row for Die immer lacht by Stereoact Feat. Kerstin Ott and Stressed Out by the twentyøne piløts.

With the SeeB remix of I Took A Pill In Ibiza (originally recorded by Mike Posner a second Norwegian act enters the top 10. The track lands at #7 and doubles the feat of June last year when also two Norwegians appeared simultaneously inside the German Top 10.
Additionally at #87 the new singly by KYGO Fragile enters the list. It is a surprising collaboration with British Labrinth. This production is the sixth Norwegian this week which marks again the hiatus of presence of production coming from the Scandinavian country.

These weeks we're whitnessing a period of very slow chart turnover. In fact this week is the third in 2016 that only six songs can enter or re-enter the list meaning every forth week there is almost no change of songs inside the survey.
