Every Friday we gather the top ten Nordic tracks in the Nordic countries on the Trenda: Nordic Chart, to give you the best overview of what’s hot in the region – and this week sees LOADS of new entries!
First up? Denmark’s S!vas returns to the Danish chart with the single ‘Kun Hinanden’ feat. Gilli. S!vas is undoubtedly one of the hottest hip-hop artists in Denmark at the moment and in February, he released his much awaited debut album Famile før para. ‘Kun hinanden’ is the first single from the new album, and after his performance at Where’s the Music? festival in Sweden, we’re very much looking forward to where the new release will take him!
Finland continues the fast-paced introduction of new songs to the Trenda: Nordic Charts. Finnish-Portuguese singer Anna Abreu returns together with rapper Tippa-T with the track ‘Grindaa ja flowaa’, which lands in the second spot already in its first week. Other new releases include one of the most popular domestic metal acts Stam1na, whose new track ‘Kuudet raamit’, taken from their up-coming album Elokuutio, enters in position nine.
Denmark’s Lukas Graham stays firmly on the chart with his singles ‘Mama Said’ and ‘7 Years’, as does Sweden’s favourite female artist at the moment, Miriam Bryant, with her remakes of the classics ‘Allt Jag Behöver’ and ‘Ett Sista Glas’. We met Miriam at Where’s the Music? in Norrköping, to discuss the recording and re-writing of the tracks, so watch the interview to find out more!
And one of the most exciting developments on the Trenda: Nordic Charts this week can be seen in Iceland, where Icelandic indie band Dikta’s single ‘Hope for the Best’, which recently entered the chart, rises to position 2.
The top spot on the Trenda: Nordic Chart for Iceland is overtaken by Denmark’s Lukas Graham, whose single ‘7 Years’ makes an impressive jump from position six. New tracks in Iceland include homegrown super talents Of Monsters and Men, who’ve now got two tracks on the chart, as ‘Wolves Without Teeth’, the latest single release from their latest album Beneath the Skin, enters the chart in position four.
