June 16th 17: Justin Bieber Serves Best #1 in Spanish Ever

The next days summer holidays start in Germany. The hit of this summer already is obvious. It is Despacito that holds firm at the top spot for an eighth consecutive week. It is this also the longest running #1 hit in Spanish Germany ever had. So far summer hit of 2002 The Ketchup Song by Las Ketchup was. Of course the lyrics of that hit were some kind of fantasy Spanish–so again Ricky Martin's La copa de la vida from 1998 might be counted as the predecessor with six consecutive weeks at #1.
Talking 'bout records: Justin Bieber who joins Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee on the most popular version of the song (according to all available download rankings) might stand as the first Canadian who appears on the German top for two months since Celine Dion in 1998.

At #3 Justin Bieber appears again. On David Guetta's new single 2U the Canadian sings the lyrics and launches a third simultaneous top 10 hit this week. Last time he did so was back on November 20th 2015.
So both Bieber & Guetta are the first acts in 2017 having three hits inside the top 10.

Newly to the top 10 French Montana stands at #8 with Unforgettable. It is the first appearance as high in Germany. Collaborating partner Swae Lee already has top 10 experience as Rae Sremmurd peaked at #8 in December 2016 with Black Beatles.
And also the new single by jonas blue Mama comes in. At #9 it is the third top 10 hit for the British DJ/producer. Only predecessor By Your Side failed as a hit.

With an acoustic version available online Attention by Charlie Puth finally can made it into the top 20. In its eighth chart week the song 22–14 giving the singer his second highest chart entry after #1 single See You Again back in spring two years ago.

The story of the album charts is the new album by Bushido. The Berlin based rap star storms to #1 with Black Friday. On the single charts all 14 tracks appear on the survey best performing pre-released single Papa which slides down 17–20 in its third chart week. Lowest on is Angst at #73 featuring Ali Bumaye.
Bushido now ranks as the German chart act with most entries at all leaving Kollegah eight entries behind him. To really get the chart crown he needs five more chart hits to equal the result of Peter Alexander who collected 81 different songs inside the charts.

The invasion of Bushido tracks also causes a result of 17 new tracks inside the list. It equals the number of April 21st 2017 which was the highest this current year so far. Plus two new entries this week has the second biggest change of hits in 2017–only the very first list of the year had the number of 20 (Christmas) songs leaving the charts.

As Hulapalu by Andreas Gabalier this week leaves the survey there is a new longest running hit. It is Ohne mein Team by Bonez MC & RAF Camora feat. Maxwell which sits pretty at #60 in its 41st week.
