Ed Sheeran holds firm at the top for a seventh week with Shape Of You. So it definitely is one of the big hits of 2017. And it writes chart history as it now adds the 22nd consecutive week of having a British act at the German top. I checked the lists before 1971 too and so I have the honour to tell you: Never before in chart history British acts performed as successful.
This period of course might end soon as there are no proper candidates for #1 coming from Britain in this moment. The highest new entry which lands at #3 is a Norwegian-USAmerican collaboration between DJ KYGO and singer Selena Gomez. It Ain't Me marks the return to chart power for the DJ after half a year of abstinence. It is his third Top 3 hit following 2015 success Stole The Show that peaked at #2 in June 2015.
Selena Gomez hits top 10 status for the very first time. So far her German chart debut Naturally was the highest performing single by peaking at #12 in spring 2010.
New inside the top20 Burak Yeter is. The Turkish born DJ brings his German chart debut Tuesday in its third week to hit status.
In opposite to the British hiatus of productions Germans are quite underrepresented this week. The highest German production lands as low as #19 in the face of Robin Schulz in collaboration with David Guetta & Cheat Codes. Shed A Light drops down seven places. The highest track using German language sits newly at #20 with the next available track by Zuna Cazal.
