European Border Breakers Chart 2 November 2018

The fun part of the European Border Breakers Chart is that it is totally unlike any other chart around. Not only because it only features emerging European artists who are successful outside their home country, but also because that starting point gives visibility to a whole new generation of pop stars, before their break-through. In other words: the EBBChart is all about discovery, and if you follow it, you’ll be the first to know!

Personally, I’m thrilled to see the marvellous Uh Huh by Jade Bird (pictured) being picked up in Scandinavia, Iceland and Estonia, causing it to jump straight into the Top 3 of this week’s Top 100. Although Silk City feat. Dua Lipa still reign supreme, Jade Bird could cause a stir at the top of the EBBChart, if only she’d get some more support from radio stations and streamers in the rest of Europe.

Elsewhere, the Top 100 counts 23 (re)entries, 10 of which are completely new to the list. Two artists even have two debuting tracks each: Dutch rapper Willem (formerly half of hip hop duo The Opposites) and British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason (who already scored three EBBChart hits before these two). All ten newcomers are below:
#43: B.E.D. – Walk Away
#48: Willem – Man In Nood
#54: Eut – Look (Who Has Decided After All)
#69: Loski – Cool Kid
#84: Au/Ra – Ultraviolet
#86: L Devine – Nervous
#92: Sheku Kanneh-Mason – Evening Of Roses
#94: J. Bernardt – The Other Man
#95: Sheku Kanneh-Mason – Hallelujah
#98: Willem – Houten Pak

For the full Top 100, click the β€˜EBBChart’ tab in the top menu of this blog (loading of the PDF may take a little while). More charts, like the Tips (ranking the tracks that are on their way to the Top 100), the Airplay Chart and the Streaming Chart, are available at, where you can also listen to all of the tracks and watch their videos, as well as share them via social media.
