June 10th 16: KUnGS goes #1

What a surprise! On the midweek charts Can't Stop The Feeling by JT still ruled the list–at the end of the week This Girl by Australian Cookin' On 3 Burners remixed by French KUnGS is the top selling song of the week. The song reaches #1 in its eighth chart week which is a very common time for the past months.

With KUnGS entering the top there ends a one and a half year abstinence of French acts at the German top. Back in 2014 astonishing four french productions reached the top. The Australian band is already the second act from the island continent this year. Back in 2010 two Australian acts topped the charts in one calendar year in the face of Empire Of The Sun and Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP.
Australian predecessor SIA by the way sits pretty at #4 with Cheap Thrills which gives us a situation with the four top ranks are occupied by #1 hits.

Two songs enter the top 10 for the first time. At #7 Alle Farben feat. YOUNOTUS stands coming from #16. Please Tell Rosie already is the third consecutive top 10 hit for Alle Farben–well there is a next German DJ on the way of becoming a beloved producer. This week he grabs the crown of being the best selling German act of the week outselling the highest new entry by one place.
At #8 German hiphop trio Beginner is back after more than 11 years. With Ahnma the trio has its first top10 hit waiting for it more than 17 years. Member Jan Delay already has some experience as solo artist plus a #1 appearance as part of the German Ban Aid at the end of 2014. Featured artist Gzuuz past week had his big breakthrough. His 10th entry is his highest chart appearance for now.

Of course the official EURO2016 anthem This One's For You by David Guetta Feat. Zara Larsson starts rising steadily. It reaches #19 this issue.

Highest gainer of the week is Don't Be So Shy by Imany. The song jumps 32 places to #31. 21 places up is the result for Holland by 257ers. The song stops at #46. Breathe by seeb feat. Neev takes an 18 places leap to #58 and at #75 EGO by Willy William lands after an 24 places leap.


New inside the German charts Austrian no.1 song Sound Of Silence by Disturbed is. Here it starts at #82 and probably will rise the next weeks.


Again the list contains only 14 productions including British acts. It is indeed a weak presence which might be hardly found in whole history of pop music.
