European Border Breakers Chart 28 December 2018

Today, three years after its first edition, the last European Border Breakers Chart is published. That is to say: the name will change. In order to make it a perfect selection tool for potential winners of a Music Moves Europe Talent Award, some changes will be made to the new chart, which will be rebranded as the Music Moves Europe Talent Chart. More details can be found here on 4 January 2019.

However, the EBBChart goes out with a bang. One third of the Top 100 consists of (re)entries, and 9 out of those 33 are complete newcomers. Highest of them all, at #34, is this year’s surprise Christmas #1 in the UK charts. LadBaby (the moniker of successful British β€˜dad blogger’ Mark Hoyle – pictured) made a new version of Starship’s 1985 hit We Built This City, with all proceeds going to the foodbanks in Great Britain.
At #98, Pale Waves also come in on the back of a cover. They add some jingle balls to Wham!’s Last Christmas.
All 9 newcomers are below:

#34: LadBaby – We Built This City
#37: The YD – Hoping
#65: Sebastian WalldΓ©n – Everything
#69: Spielbergs – 4AM
#78: Da BeatfreakzΒ feat. AJ x Deno, Deno Swarmz & Cadet – Jumpy
#80: Lankum – What Will We Do When We Have No Money
#92: Free Money – U Got Me
#93: Drpeura – This Year
#98: Pale Waves – Last Christmas
#99: Fauness – Sixteen
