The Top Ten

1 Zuhältertape Vol. 4 - Kollegah Zuhältertape Vol. 4 - Kollegah

What a strong year for German hip hop. And so many of those are deserving number one spots.

Unfortunately I forgot to put the link to the full list in the description, but I am sure you'll find it on Wikipedia. - Martin_Canine

From December 18th to 24th.

His fourth chart topping album in a row (also counting the Farid Bang collaboration "Jung Brutal Gutaussehend 2" and the "Chronik III" collaboration between several rappers). - Martin_Canine

2 Asphalt Massaka 3 - Farid Bang

From Aptil 10th to 16th.

His third chart topping album in a row. - Martin_Canine

3 Chronik III - Kollegah, Favorite, Genetikk, 257ers & Karate Andi Chronik III - Kollegah, Favorite, Genetikk, 257ers & Karate Andi

From October 16th to 22nd. - Martin_Canine

4 Cla$$ic - Bushido & Shindy Cla$$ic - Bushido & Shindy

From November 13th to 19th.

That's not at all a neutral information, but this album has often been called the German "Watch the Throne". - Martin_Canine

5 Planktonweed Tape - SpongeBozz

From May 1st to 4th.

And I have no idea why it was on top only that short. Usually, this is counted in weeks. - Martin_Canine

6 Muttersprache - Sarah Connor

From May 29th to June 4th. - Martin_Canine

7 Neues von Gott - Favorite

From February 6th to 12th. - Martin_Canine

8 Farbenspiel - Helene Fischer

From January 9th to 15th.

This album from 2013 has topped the German charts the third year in a row.
It was certified ten times platinum. It is one of the 20 best selling albums in Germany and the sixth best selling German language album in Germany. - Martin_Canine

9 Fifty Shades Of Grey (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Various Artists

From March 6th to 12th. - Martin_Canine

10 Sing Meinen Song: Das Tauschkonzert, Vol. 2 - Various Artists

From June 12th to 18th, then again from July 24th to August 13th.

This is the soundtrack to a popular show in which famous German singers have to perform each other's songs. The cast of this season was soul singer Xavier Naidoo, indie singer Andreas Bourani, pop singer Yvonne Catterfeld, the two singers of 80s pop band Die Prinzen, PUR lead singer Hartmut Engler, Austrian alternative rock singer Christina Stürmer and Sub7even lead singer Daniel Wirtz. I know all of them except the latter, and they are all well known over here, but the cast of the 2017 edition was way more spectacular. - Martin_Canine

The Contenders

11 Gipfelstürmer - Unheilig

From December 24th 2014 to January 1st 2015, then again from January 16th to 22nd. - Martin_Canine

12 Rock or Bust - AC/DC

From January 2nd to 8th. - Martin_Canine

13 PP=MC² - Prinz Porno

From January 23rd to 29th. - Martin_Canine

14 Kaos - Vega

From January 30th to February 5th. - Martin_Canine

15 Niveau Weshalb Warum - Deichkind

From February 13th to 19th. - Martin_Canine

16 Keiner Kommt Klar Mit Mir - Frank White

From February 20th to 26th.

This is a pseudonym of Fler. I am a bit stunned he already topped the charts in 2015, as his hype started in 2016. - Martin_Canine

17 Carlo Cokxxx Nutten III - Bushido

From February 27th to March 5th.

According to Wikipedia, this album broke a record because it was the first time five hip hop albums topped the German charts in a row. But if I did count correctly, it was six: Prinz Porno, Vega, Favorite, Deichkind, Fler/Frank White and Bushido. One could argue the group Deichkind is very much on the pop end, but they are sandwiched between the others so they definitely counted. - Martin_Canine

18 Brandneu - Wolfgang Petry

From March 13th to 19th.

Again just a little side note from the writer: don't you agree that it is a stupid idea calling your album "brand new"? As I write this, it is 2017 and it already isn't brand new anymore. - Martin_Canine

19 Rebel Heart - Madonna

From March 20th to 26th.

Her twelfth chart topping album overall. In that regard, she is the most successful non-German artist in Germany and the third most overall. Well deserved, even though this particular album was disappointing for me. - Martin_Canine

20 Tracker - Mark Knopfler

From March 27th to April 9th.

I don't know this album or the artist... and this is astonishing judging by the fact that he pushed a famous band like Nightwish back to number two. Really: who is this guy and how did he beat such an anticipated album like "Endless Forms Most Beautiful"? - Martin_Canine

21 Opposition - Frei. Wild

From April 17th to 30th.

Their third chart topping album in a row. - Martin_Canine

22 Für Immer Wochenende - Weekend

From May 5th to 7th.

Like with SpongeBozz... why only for such a short period of time? - Martin_Canine

23 Baba Aller Babas - Xatar

From May 8th to 14th.

Just realizing how extremely dominant German hip hop was in 2015. That also was the year where I turned from an occasional listener to a hardcore genre fan. - Martin_Canine

24 Achter Tag - Genetikk

From May 15th to 21st. - Martin_Canine

25 Mountain Man - Andreas Gabalier

From May 22nd to 28th. - Martin_Canine

26 Von Liebe, Tod und Freiheit - Santiano

From June 5th to 11th. - Martin_Canine

27 Fata Morgana - KC Rebell

From June 19th to 25th. - Martin_Canine

28 Skills In Pills - Lindemann

From June 26th to July 2nd. - Martin_Canine

From October 23rd to 29th. - Martin_Canine

42 Tabaluga: Es lebe die Freundschaft! - Peter Maffay

From November 6th to 12th.

This is Maffay's seventheenth chart topping album overall. In that regard, remains the most successful artist in Germany. - Martin_Canine

43 Weihnachten - Helene Fischer & the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

From November 20th to 26th, then again from December 4th to 17th, and then a third time from December 25th to 31st.

Christmas album.
The album would also top the charts in the two years to come (see my lists about chart topping albums in 2016 and 2017). - Martin_Canine

44 25 - Adele

From November 27th to December 3rd.

The album also charted in 2016 (see my list about the chart topping albums of that year). - Martin_Canine
