August 11th 17: Longest Running No.1 Since 27 Years

Indeed Despacito by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee feat. Justin Bieber is the best sold song for a 16th week and now is the longest running #1 since 1990 when Matthias Reim had that exactly run with Verdammt ich lieb' dich. And so both songs share the honor of being the second longest running #1 hit of the weekly German charts since 1971. Of course if one takes in account the time of the fortnightly or monthly chart issues there are four songs more that performed better.

The only new top 10 song is the all star collaboration with Calvin Harris Ft. Pharrell Williams Katy Perry & Big Sean. By landing at #9 Feels gives the lady of that posse her second top 10 hit in 2017–all together she does have 11 top 10 hits on her account. DJ Calvin Harris now ads an eighth top 10 hit to his–last one is back a year ago with My Way that peaked at #5. Pharrell Williams had his last top 10 appearance back in 2014 when he brought his eponymous Happy to #1 status. Only Big Sean is really new on this chart height. So far he peaked at #12 alongside Jessie J with Wild in July 2013.

A significant rise is done by Dua Lipa's fifth chart hit New Rules. It goes 70–45 in its second chart week and directly follows top 10 hit Scared To Be Lovely on which she appeared as featured artist and got her highest chart appearance so far with #9.

At #46 a next German gangster rapper starts his song charts career. It is VEYSEL who can launch Bargeld as the highest new entry of the week.

A tiny move done from 51–49 gets the honor of attention here as Camila Cabello achieves to reach the upper half of the charts as an solo artist for the very first time. The song giving her that crown is Crying In The Club and it already sneaks through the 50s and 60s for almost three months.
