My hitlist has become very international. It has always been quite diverse in terms of the countries of origin, but recent weeks have proved that it can be even better! Let’s have a look at the list of countries: the UK and the US (obviously), China, Sweden, Poland, Georgia, Albania (at least Albanian descent), Austria, Ukraine, Spain and Norway! Not bad, not bad!
Five new entries this week means nine new entries withing two weeks! That’s almost 50% of all tracks. I can say it’s a record. I can’t remember such busy charts! And yet the winning song has held its position. Congratulations go to Radiohead again: that’s the 3rd week that “Burn The Witch” is on top. What’s new? Swedish Kent with new single from new album (sounds delicious!), Swedish Frans (who represented Sweden at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest), Spanish Álvaro Soler (I can hear his “Sofia” everywhere! Madness!), returning Red Hot Chili Peppers (I guess it’s been about 10 years since they charted here) and Austrian Zoë (who, by the way, sings in French).
