European Border Breakers Chart 20 April 2018

The big winner of this week’s European Border Breakers Chart is Sigrid, who won a European Border Breakers Award this year. Not only does she jump from #3 to pole position with Strangers, besting Liam Payne & Rita Ora’s For You after nine consecutive weeks of chart domination, but Sigrid’s latest single High Five is also the highest entry at #10. Not often does a track gain direct access to the Top 10. And that’s not all, the song that started the Norwegian singer’s career, Don’t Kill My Vibe, re-enters the Top 100 at #65, while her recent single Raw is still at #91.

A little bit further down the chart there’s another winner, and a less obvious one. Hot on the heels of the release of their eponymous debut album, young British all-female rock four-piece Goat Girl (pictured) enter the Top 100 with no less than three album tracks: The Man With No Heart Or Brain (#70), Creep (#72), and Slowly Reclines (#79). Meanwhile, their singles Cracker Drool and The Man also hold #54 and #86, respectively.
