The first month of 2017 is gone and the top 10 almost completely is changed. The artist of the year seems to be Ed Sheeran as he spends a fourth week at #1 with Shape Of You. Additionally Castle On The Hill returns back to #2–it is the second time this year having Ed Sheeran occupying the first two ranks. Pretty at #3 Rockabye by Clean Bandit clings on–the hit from the tail end of 2016. So we do have a fourth week with a complete British top 3.
The renewing of the top 10 also this weeks continues. At #7 there is newly inside the top Way Down We Go by Icelandic band Kaleo. It rises seven places in its fourth weeks and so belongs to the very fast growing hits of now. The last top 10 hit coming from Iceland was seen in May/June 2012 when Of Monsters And Men had their Little Talks peaked at #5.
The sad story comes for German productions. As there are no new releases are around the highest ranking German song now slides out of the top 10. The song in question is Chöre by Mark Forster which has its turn on #11 this week. It is this the first time since November 2016 that no German production is placed higher than #11.
The highest new entry comes in at #19. It is a collaboration of Martin Garrix & Dua Lipa. Scared To Be Lonely follows Garrix' top 20 hit from past autumn In The Name Of Love while Dua Lipa launches a third top 20 entry with the recent production–the direct predecessor No Lies (alongside Sean Paul) still ranks well at #10.
And there are still some more future hits to come, as there are:
- Steady 1234 by VICE Feat. Jasmine Thompson & Skizzy Mars going 57–30 in its third chart week
– Loin by French Maitre Gims Feat. Dany Synthé going 74–37 in its second week
- Handclap by Fitz and The Tantrums going 80–59 in its second week
- Bad And Boujee by MIGOS Feat. Lil Uzi Vert going 88–65 in its third week
- I Got You by Bebe Rexha going finally 89–67 in its fourth chart week, the song first appeared on the charts in early November past year
On #93 an artist returns to chart honors who was 10 years ago one of the supporters of Raggaton fame in Europe. Daddy Yankee had one top 10 hit with Gasolina in 2005. A year later minor hit Rompe showed up for seven weeks. More than ten years later– exactly this current week the Daddy is back as featured artist on Luis Fonsi's single Despacito. So far it is the lowest charting song of the Puerto Ricanian.
