'Am I Wrong' by Nico & Vinz spent only one week on the throne of the Global Track Chart and slides currently at no.3 after a 15% points decline to 242.000. Also 'Rude' by Magic! lost 3% in points to 260.000, but that's enough for a return to top position. It's the third non-consecutive week at the summit for that song. The 20 year-old Meghan Trainor is the shooting-star of the season. Her debut smash 'All About That Bass' reached with a record pace the vice-position of the Global Chart (up 21% to 244.000 points). Thematically in the near of Christina Aguilera's 'Beautiful' and musically in the near of Duffy and her blue-eyed soul, 'All About That Bass' will be surely one of the biggest hits in the last third of this year. Pharrell Williams' 'Happy', this week at no.18, reached a total of 13.025.000 points after 36 weeks on the tally. It's enough to overtake 'Gangsta's Paradise' by Coolio feat. L.V. on the ALL TIME CHART. So 'Happy' climbs now at no.9 and next week it will be overtake 'I Gotta Feeling' by the Black Eyed Peas, the biggest hit of the 21st century so far! Back to this week's hitlist, Japanese seven-member boy band Kis-My-Ft2 brings the highest debut, 'Another Future' lands at no.15 with 141.000 points. Outside the Top 40 waiting among other Winner's 'Coloring' at no.41, Kana Nishino's 'Darling' at no.43, Dierks Bentley's Drunk On A Plane' at no.57 and Lady Antebellum's 'Bartender' at no.59 and  for their first appearance on the big list.
