European Border Breakers Chart 5 January 2018

At first glance, the first European Border Breakers Chart for 2018 is โ€˜just another EBBChartโ€™, highlighting the emerging European artists that are most popular outside their home country. But itโ€™s not. From now on, the chart is based on both airplay and streaming data. On top of that, besides the combined Top 100 we now also present a separate airplay chart and streaming chart.

Furthermore, in order to create room for even more upcoming European acts, as per now tracks are removed from the chart after 52 weeks. As a consequence, this weekโ€™s EBBChart has an exceptionally high number of (re)entries: an unprecedented 46(!) of them. This new chart rule has an immediate positive effect on the number of songs that are in the Top 100 for the first time.

There are no less than 18 newcomers: Big Shaq – Manโ€™s Not Hot (#58), Therapie Taxi feat. Romรฉo Elvis – Hit Sale (#61; pictured), Kokab – Got You (#63), Sam Fender – Start Again (#64), IamDDB – Shade (#73), Mr. Jukes feat. De La Soul & Horace Andy – Leap Of Faith (#77), Kelly Lee Owens – Lucid (#79), Nabihah Iqbal – Saw U Twice (#83), Mรฅneskin – Chosen (#86), Jorja Smith – Where Did I Go? (#88), Ten Tonnes – Cracks Between (#92), Indiia feat. Whitney Philips – Out Of Love (#93), Mickey – Drive (#94), Mr. Jukes feat. Lalah Hathaway – From Golden Stars Comes Silver Dew (#95), Joe Fox – What’s The Word (#96), Altin Gรผn – Goca Dรผnya (#98), Shy Luv – Fashion (#99), and Kurupt FM – Suttin Like That (#100).

Never before there was so much new European talent to be discovered ?
