The midweek charts had detect a strong challenger for the #1 slot as Perfect by Ed Sheeran reached #2. Later this week the song got a stronger weakness sitting now pretty at #5 again and giving way to Was du Liebe nennst by BAUSA spending a fourth week at the top spot. At runners up position now Camila Cabello ranks with her ode to Havana which is far and away the best appearance she ever claimed.

There is no new entry to the top 10 but two songs re-entering. The higher one at #9 is New Rules by Dua Lipa which gains a new peak in its 14th chart week. So far the song has occupied #10 for three weeks than dropping out for a full month and now rising 12–9 again. New Rules now matches the result of predecessor and so far biggest hit Scared To Be Lonely alongside Martin Garrix.
Second top10 re-entry is Mi Gente by J balvin & Willy William going 11–10 after a single week outside. It is the 13th top10 week which makes the song one of the nine longest running top10 hits in 2017.

At #19 What Lovers Do by Maroon 5 Feat. SZA goes. It is the first top20 appearance for the band since three years.

Watching the top 20 one can witness a strong presence of artists from the US. Between #11 and #20 there are nine songs involving US artists–eight songs are from US acts alone.
