2. "OK" - Robin Schulz featuring James Blunt (8)
3. "No Roots" - Alice Merton (2)

10. "Tuesday" - Burak Yeter featuring Danelle Sandoval (5)

A record I featured last week, "Louis Louis" from rapper/singer Kay One, makes its way into the top ten at #9. It interpolates the new wave nugget from Modern Talking, "Brother Louie"...

Further down the chart, rapper Bushido (who Kay One has had 'beef' with in the past), enters the top 40 at #22 with "Papa"...


Meanwhile, on the albums chart in the country, schlager queen Helene Fischer climbs back to #1 with her self-titled record...

Electro-hiphop artist Marteria takes over at #2 with his fourth studio release, Roswell. His last, Zum Glück in die Zukunft II from 2014, went to #1. The current single from the album, "Das Geld muss weg" ("The Money Must Go"), enters the top-40 at #37...


Frankfurt-based hard rock band Böhse Onkelz ("Evil Uncles") arrive at #3 with their Live In Dortmund II concert set. They've topped the albums chart nine times, but not without a bit of controversy about their past, though they now say they promote tolerance...


National electronica icons Kraftwerk leap in at #4 with their 3-D: Der Katalog set. It's their third top ten album in Germany and highest rank ever...


Berlin rappers Frauenarzt and Taklo$$ team up at #8 with Gott ("Good")...


Gregor Meyle, a singer/songwriter from the southern town of Backnang, slips in at #10 with Präsentiert Meylensteine Vol. 2 ("Presenting Meylenstein")...
