Sept. 16th 16: Justin Bieber's First No.1 / MC Bonez Beats Jackson

After ten weeks there is a new #1 in Germany–and this is a #1 telling stories. With Justin Bieber and DJ Snake two artists reach the top that did not before. In the case of Justin Bieber it is somehow surprising. The highly celebrated and talked about media star of now took exactly seven year to get here. On September 18th 2009 he first appeared at #14 with One Time. His first top10 entry appeared in spring 2012 as featured artist on Far East Movement's single Live My Life that peaked at #8. His first proper hit as a solo artist came back in September 2015 when What Do You Mean? shot to #4. Now finally he grabs the chart crown with his 35th chart entry–although Let Me Love You is again a collaboration.
Additionally to his first #1 Justin Bieber this weeks also serves with the longest running track on the list. Due to the dropout of Glasperlenspiel's Geiles Leben after 55 weeks now Love Yourself is the longest running song with 44 chart weeks.
Bieber's partner on the song is celebrated DJ Snake who already had five chart hits before, one of them Lean On (alongside Major Lazer & Mø) reaching #4 in 2015.
Again there is a French artist on top of the German charts–DJ Snake is the fourth in a row and France the most present country at #1 in 2015 so far.

The Chainsmokers Ft. Halsey also reach a new peak. Closer goes up three places and lands at runners up position.

On the album's list there also is a new #1–this is something very common these times. The winner of the week are MC Bonez & RAF Camora and their album Palmen aus Plastik. For MC Bonez it is already the second album #1 in 2016–that's really an impressive feat. Back in June he shot to the top alongside Gzuz with high & Hungrig 2.
The #1 album launches a lot of entries on the song list too. Highest track is Ohne mein Team (feat. Maxwell) that jumps 44–7.
All together all 15 tracks of the album chart for themselves. It is more than the Beginners did two weeks ago and so the album with the biggest impact on the singles charts in 2016. Compared to other years only Kollegah did better: in 2015 Zuhältertape Vol.4 launched 17 out of 20 album tracks and 2014 18 of 20 tracks from the album King entered the singles list. With 24 charted single tracks in one year MC Bonez now performed better than Michael Jackson in 2009 when "only" 23 songs of the artist appeared on the charts in one calendar year.


The biggest gainer is the new offering by SIA. The Greatest is the direct follower to her #1 hit Cheap Thrills and lands at #14 this current week. Partner Kendrick Lamar by this reaches a career peak.

Three years after her last release Lady Gaga is back. Perfect Illusion has the power of becoming the highest new entry of the week. Although #31 is somehow low compared to 2009 when she was the queen of pop.

Further gainer:
69–41 Side To Side Ariana Grande Ft. Nicki Minaj
