March 17th 17: Ed Sheeran's 10th Week

Also a week after the big invasion Ed Sheeran serves the most wanted song of the week. Shape Of You now spends a tenth week at the German top as album : (Divide) also leads the list for a second week. This recent year only Helene Fischer and The Rolling Stones had the honour doing so.
This recent week expands the British leadership over the German list to 25 consecutive weeks. Never before British acts had done so before. Additionally the full list contains 33 songs with British participation–one more than past week.

Back to Ed Sheeran: Second song is Galway Girl which climbs three places to #5 and serves as the third hit for the singer that reaches the top5 in 2017. With Castle On The Hill clinging on at #7 there are again three songs by Ed Sheeran inside the top 10.
A fourth song sits at #20 with Perfect.
Almost all songs off the album again chart in this week. Only Save Myself drops out from #56 which means Ed Sheeran does have this week 15 simultaneous hits.


The story of the week might be connected to the 6-3 rise of club tune Tuesday. Producer and DJ Burak Yeter is only the second Turkish born producer reaching the German top 3. So far it was Mousse T. who peaked there with Sex Bomb in 1999. The only "real" Turkish act reaching the German top 10 was Tarkan who peaked with Şımarık at #6 in 1997.

New inside the top 10 You Don't Know Me by Jax Jones Feat. Raye is. The song comes in at #6 in its fifth chart week.
To #16 Stay by ZEDD & Alessia Cara rises. It is the third chart week for the song.
Second new comer to the top 20 is the new offering by Jason Derulo Swalla. The production features Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. The latter one adds a third top 20 hit after Work From Home (featured by Fifth Harmony) and Sucker For Pain in 2016. Jason Derulo and Nicki Minaj had a two years absence from the top 20.

Biggest gainer of the week jumps 46 places to #40. Due to release of album Die bunte Seite der Macht teasing single So schön kaputt reaches a new peak. It is the second chart hit for Berlin duo SDP.
Mask Off is the first track by Future reaching the upper half of the German charts by jumping 44 places to #39 in its second chart week. He already has two lower appearances as featured artist under his belt. Mask Off belongs to the new US rap sound tracks approaching Europe since a few months.

The highest new entry comes in as low as #47. It is Waterfall by production duo Stargate who already has some super hits under its belt but never mentioned as main artist. This is the very first chart entry featuring P!NK & SIA.
