'See You Again', performed by Rapper Wiz Khalifa and new rising star Charlie Puth debuts at no.1 this week on the World's Best Singles Chart. Driven by massive download sales and streams, especially in the USA, Canada, Germany and Australia, the song gets an incredible sales boost. 'See You Again' is a tribute to the American actor Paul Walker, who died in a car accident in November 2013. The song replaces Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" ft. Bruno Mars after a 16 week reign at the top of the chart. "Uptown Funk" slips to no.2. Ellie Goulding's 'Love Me Like You Do' rounds out the top three.

 

"Shut Up And Dance" by American indie rock band Walk The Moon debuts at no.10 this week. The band derives their name from the song 'Walking On The Moon' by Police (1979). The catchy song was inspired by the music of the 1980s and is based on an experience frontman Nicholas Petricca had at a Los Angeles nightclub. His girlfriend invited him to dance, inspring the title, which he envisioned as an anthem for letting go of frustration and having fun.

The Soundtrack to 'Furious 7' is no.1 this week. The Movie 'Furious 7' has grossed over 1 Billion Dollars in just 17 days, becoming the 20th film in Hollywood history to do so. The soundtrack, released March 17, is top of the global Album charts this week, helped by Wiz Khalifa's smash hit "See you again" with Charlie Puth which is the world's no.1 Single. Both album and single accomplish a spectacular jump to the top of each hitlist. The soundtrack sold over 126.000 copies globally this week, mostly in the USA (45.100 units), in the United Kingdom (25.500) and nearly 20.000 in Germany. 'Furious 7' is one of only three albums in the Top 20 showing a real sales increase (apart from the debut Albums).

His 11th studio album 'Tama Riku' debuts at no.1 in Japan and at no.2 globally, with sales of 123.000 sales, according to Oricon.


The most important international release this week was the new LP by the American pop-punk band All Time Low. 'Future Hearts', their sixth studio album, soars to no.3 on the Global Chart with sales of 109.000.

Exo's new Album 'Exodus' is the no.1 top selling Album in the world.  It is a Chinese-South Korean collaboration with the boy group Exo now consisting of 10 members instead of the original 12. The band is separated in two subgroups, Exo-K and Exo-M, performing in Korean and Mandarin, respectively. That's why their release is available in two versions (Korean and Mandarin). 'Exodus' debuts with huge sales especially in South Korea, where both versions sold 270.000 copies in their initial week. Another 22.000 units were sold in Japan, and 6.000 copies were sold in America! Globally the LP sold a total of 303.000 copies, just 3,000 more than the new Album by the legendary Japanese pop/rock band Southern All Stars. 'Budo', their first original album in 10 years, tops the national chart in Japan with 300.000 copies sold, according to Oricon.


At at no.3, Prodigy's sixth studio album 'The Day Is My Enemy' debuts with sales of 99.000. The Prodigy have been credited as pioneers of the Big Beat genre in the Ninetees, a fusion of rock and techno. The Prodigy's third album 'The Fat Of The Land' released in 1997 was a huge worldwide success. It went to no.1 in more than 20 countries in July 1997 and has sold more than 7 million copies to date.


Boosted by Easter sales, many albums on the current Top 20 had sales increases this week, but the biggest winner is the soundtrack to the new sequel of the American action film 'The Fast And The Furious'. In its third week on the charts, it jumps from no.39 to no.17, driven by a massive 223% sales growth of 58.000 copies.
