The song "Komet" together with rapper Apache 207 gave Udo Lindenberg the first number one hit of his career.

It was "simply fantastic". Last week the hit "Komet" was in second place.
So far, the MTV unplugged song "Cello" (with Clueso, fourth place) and 40 years ago the catchy tune "Sonderzug nach Pankow" (fifth place) were the top-ranked songs by the panic rocker. It is already the eleventh number one song for the 25-year-old rapper Apache 207. Lindenberg was more successful through his albums, but it wasn't enough for number 1 until late in his career with "Stark wie Zwei" in 2008 and "Stärker als die Zeit" in 2016.
Last week's winner Miley Cyrus swapped places with Lindenberg and fell to second place with "Flowers". Third place went again to Ayliva feat. Mero ("She knows").
The top six albums are completely new. Fresh number one is the Hamburg dark rock and gothic band Mono Inc. with "Ravenblack". South Tyrolean tenor Rudy Giovannini ("The Best") and music legend Bob Dylan ("Fragments - Time Out of Mind Sessions (1996-1997)" follow. Behind them are the hard rock veterans Uriah Heep ("Chaos
