Artists singing in German are so rare to be seen in the more respected end of the chart these days, that we can more than welcome the return of Sportfreunde Stiller in the top 20 with "Das Geschenk" at #15. The single heralds the release of the boys' new album and arrives three years after their last chart entry "New York, Rio, Rosenheim". It's the seventh top 20 single of the band.

After it stalled around the #18 position for the past couple of weeks, "Final Song" of MØ manages to advance two notches to #16, while Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha enter the top 20 at #19 with "In The Name Of Love", up five. It's thus the second single of Martin Garrix in the top 20, next to his "Animals", which reached #4 in 2013 before spending 56 weeks in the top 100. Bebe Rexha has been in the top 20 twice before, providing support to David Guetta's "Hey Mama" (peak #9) and G-Eazy's "Me, Myself & I" (peak #7).

Although the name of Wincent Weiss may sound unfamiliar, the German singer has already had great success by providing vocals to Gestört aber Geil's 2015 megahit "Unter meiner Haut".

The remaining new entries are led by the 2016 version of "Where Is The Love", the number-one smash of Black Eyed Peas from 2003. The charity release enters at #39. There is another new song of Bonez MC & RAF Camora entering at #44, while the surprising new offering of Swedish supernova Zara Larsson "Ain't My Fault" starts its chart career at #46. Clueso and Tim Bendzko return to the countdown at #48 and #55 with "Neuanfang" and "Keine Maschine" to prove that German male singers still have power in them. They should however have landed higher. Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj's "Side To Side" appears at #69, while Sia's "The Greatest" comes in at #76 with not so bad prospects to join the top 40 soon. Another hit is cooking at #89 where actress and occasional singer Hailee Steinfeld joins forces with Grey and Zedd in the shape of "Starving".

German rappers take control over the album chart with Fler's latest "Vibe" entering directly at #1 to become his second number-one LP. In his long career Fler is still to miss the top ten. Last week's winners - Beginner slip one to #2 with "Advanced Chemistry". Rapper Kay One returns to the chart with his latest "Der Junge von Damals" at #3 and his colleague Herzog scores a career best with "Vollbluthustler" at #4. Also new inside the top 10 are "The Good Life", the newest release of Till Broenner at #6, and "Bad Vibrations" of US hardcore band A Day To Remember at #7. And finally, let's spare a thought of the disastrous performance of Britney Spears' "Glory", which plummets from #3 to #42....
