July 21st 17: Miami Yacine Outsells 187 Strassenbande Beats Kollegah

No change at the top: Despacito holds firm a 13th week. Still it is the version featuring Justin Bieber that sells most copies so the honour goes to all three Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee plus Canadian Justin Bieber. 13 weeks at #1 bring the song under the twenty longest running #1 hits of all times. If one only count modern weekly chart issues Despacito belongs to the 11 longest running #1s.
Talking about #1 stats I have to add: There are two weeks more to go for Despacito to eclipse the result of predecessor Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran from the beginning of 2017.
Having these two long runners back to back we witness a situation last seen exactly 60 years ago! In 1957 it was Margot Eskens and her version of Cindy Oh Cindy that spent five complete months at the top or 150 days or 21 weeks and 3 days–which is the longest running #1 hit Germany ever had. Followed by the three months run at the top of Banana Boat by Harry Belafonte that year had 242 days with only two different songs topping the list. Right now the result of Shape of You and Despacito sums up to 196 days. With weekly changed charts of course instead of monthly issues.

As the Imagine Dragons rise a single place to #2 with Thunder it is the first time since January 2014 that the highest European production only ranks at #3. This week it is OK by Robin Schulz Feat. James Blunt that slides 2–3 in its ninth chart week.

As calm the single's chart look as sensational the album lust appears. At #1 the new Sampler 4 by 187 Strassenbande arrives. It is an all star collection of course providing heavily new tracks by Bonez MC and Gzuz. The Hamburg collective definitely is the new German rap nobility as it beats out the new Kollegah release Legacy that only ranks at #2. 12 months ago no one ever would suspect that.
On the other hand the Hamburg crew isn't the only player on the field at all. Dresden KMN Gang at least releases hit tracks in amounts–even this week Miami Yacine beats 187 Strassenbande with his new track Bon Voyage taht lands at #5. Millionär by the Hamburg gang is outsold at #6.

All in all there 41 songs in German inside the list–a feat last seen on December 18th 2015.
