Single of the year in Germany is the summer hit “Layla” by DJ Robin & Schürze, which has been criticized as sexist, the album of the year 2022 is “Zeit” by the band Rammstein. GfK Entertainment, the investigator of the Official German Charts, published the annual charts in Baden-Baden on Friday afternoon.
“Hit of the Year, Platinum: If someone had told us that at the beginning of the year, we both would have shaken our heads. The year was definitely mega-grand,” said party pop singer Schürze of the German Press Agency.
GfK Entertainment quoted the DJ Robin & Schürze duo as saying: “We’re both still afraid that someone will wake us up and say it was all just a dream.
An incredible year is coming to an end for us, and we humbly bow to all the party hit maniacs who, together with our unbeatable team, have made “Layla” the undisputed number one in the official German single charts.”
