Now it is official: With fully nine weeks at the top of the German charts Imany is the most successfull French female singer in Germany. As I mentioned before several time: So far the crown belonged to Dalida who had an eight weeks run at the top in 1959 with Am Tag als der Regen kam.
The next challenge for Don't Be So Shy comes in one week time: Will it really match the success of so far longest runner at #1 in 2016 Faded by Alan Walker? Or will Let Me Love You by DJ Snake & Justin Bieber have enough steam to go to the top? This week the song rises two places to runner's up position giving the DJ his highest appearance so far and making the Canadian singer following himself at #2 as Cold Water gives way and drops to #4 this week.
So far we do have two French acts side by side at the upper end of the German charts. A year ago we had celebrated that event happily–in 2016 that situation seems kind of usual as we had already three French acts occupying the top in July this current year.
* The Chainsmokers launch their second top 10 hit with Closer going 12–5. The song matches the result of predecessor Don't Let Me Down which still ranks pretty at #20 this week.
* With 18 weeks inside the top 10 This Girl by KUnGS vs Cookin' On 3 Burners is currently the oldest inhabitant of the top 10. It sits at #9 still.
* After 13 years Hamburg based Beginner released a new album. Advanced Chemistry directly shot to #1 on the album's list and also propells leading single Ahnma (feat. Gzuz) back to Top20 status. The song had its peak already in June when it started chart life at #8.
Additionally Es war einmal … goes 50–27 and eight further song enter the list.
With ten simultaneous hits the Beginner are only the fourth act doing so. Before only Michael Jackson in July/August 2009, Kollegah in 2014 and 2015 and Bushido in February 2015 did so.
This impact increases the result of songs from Germany and in German a lot. 33 productions involving German acts and 29 songs in German–that is teh best result since February this current year.
* The only real Top20 new entry is Human by Rag'n'Bone Man. It rises 31–15 in its fourth chart week.
