June 9th 17: Thunder

Did anyone expect Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee (feat. Justin Bieber) spending a seventh week at #1 with Despacito? Well it is this reality this current week. By doing so both main artists now are the Puerto Ricans spending longest time at #1 in Germany. So far it was the honor for Ricky Martin who had his soccer anthem The Cup Of Life/La Copa vida spending six weeks at the top spot in summer 1998. Incidentally 1998 also is the year when the change of #1 went on as slow as this current year–remember Despacito still only is the third #1 hit in 2017.

Longest running top 10 hit Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran returns to #3 in its 22nd chart week. It is now the fifth longest top 10 inhabitant of this decade–on the all time statistic the song of course is scheduled outside the 20 longest running top 10 hits.

Highest new arrival in the top 10 is the new single by Imagine Dragons. Thunder is the second teaser single for their new album Evolve scheduled for end of June. First single Believer sadly stopped at #24 at the beginning of the year. Now the band is back to what they might be. It is the third top 10 single for them following the Suicide Squad collaboration Sucker For Pain which made it to #8 in summer past year.
