Although David Guetta, Cedric Cervais and Chris Willis led the mid-week chart with their "Would I Lie To You", it wasn't enough to eventually replace Rag'n'Bone Man at the top of the singles countdown in Germany and "Human" of the British singer stays there for the sixth time in a row. "Would I Lie To You" sticks to #2, while Sia's "The Greatest" remains at #3 in what is more or less unchanged top ten.
