The leaders of the Czech charts have not changed compared to last week. Adele continues to reign on the radio with the hit “Easy On Me”, but her potential challengers Kryštof with “I’m falling into the sky” have already moved to the medal. Viktor Sheen is even the third player in the album with the recording “Stories and Dreams”.

RADIO – While “Easy On Me” is already finishing its triumphant campaign in the world rankings, Adele is only celebrating its second winning laurel with us. A possible hat-trick may be thwarted by some of the Christmas songs next week – but we won’t find them in the top ten yet. Dua Lipa with “Love Again” defended silver, but in third place is a change. In their seventh round, the Kryštof group moved there from the last ninth place with a sweeping ballad “I’m sinking into the sky”. The song has already achieved a better result than the previous, embarrassingly accepted single “Halywůd”, whose maximum was five. Lost Frequencies and Calum Scott with “Where Are You Now” remained fourth, and after many weeks, Ed Sheeran cleared the podium, dropping to fifth place with “Bad Habits”. At seven, however, his next song “Shivers” lurks as a potential next medal adept. In addition to Sheeran, Coldplay also has a double representation in the top ten. The hit “Higher Power” pays for its oldest item after thirty weeks in a row, on the contrary, “My Universe” records the best result so far in tenth place. Thanks to this, the South Korean BTS, which enjoys phenomenal popularity in the world, has risen to the top together with the British band, but Czech playwrights have so far neglected them. When it came to Christmas songs, we should note number 11. Kryštof and Karel Gott conquered the top of the ranking with “Vánoční” last year and are now rising sharply again – two weeks ago they were not in the top 100, they were fifty-second last time and are now peeking out of the top ten. The most played novelty was aired by Lucie Vondráčková, who reads her “Message in a Bottle” in forty-eighth place. Alok and John Legend follow with “In My Mind” three lines below. As the 60th, Ed Sheeran and Elton John started with “Merry Christmas”, a song that has already triumphed in the UK charts. Alan Walker and Georgia Ku took the number seventy-five with “Don’t You Hold Me Down”, and the Swedish group Neiked, with singer Mae Muller and rapper Polo G, scored two positions behind them thanks to “Better Days”. Young Czech singer Timmy White debuts “Gravity” as eighty-seventh.

ALBA – Also in his third week, Viktor Sheen beat all the competition. In addition, this year’s novelty “Stories and Dreams” is not alone in the top ten, as the rapper’s previous very successful recordings “Black and White World” (9th) and “Colors” (10th) have returned to it. It is also worth mentioning that Sheen’s tracks are rolling digital singles chart. to which “Shadows” now reigns before his next piece “Glass”. Even the position of the silver Adele has not changed. In short, the most sought-after singer of the present is a bit unlucky that she released her fourth series “30” just at the time when the currently most listened Czech performer came up with new music. In the world, however, the album sells and streams six hundred, in the US it has already exceeded one million copies. Tomáš Klus starts with his second record on the bronze medal this year. The politically tuned recording of “ČAUČESKU” twice dominated the chart in the spring – but most of all the singers are probably pleased that its content has fallen on fertile ground and the October elections brought the fall of Andrej Babiš, whom Klus has long criticized. The current album “I Feel” produced by Jiří Burian reflects more personal themes. Frequent artifacts under this year’s Christmas trees will probably be the current studios of the Swedish legend Abba (“Voyage”) and also Vladimír Mišík (“Night Painting”), who lined up at four and five. Ed Sheeran (“=”), Kryštof (“Halywůd”) and Mirai (“Maneki Neko”) are also in the top ten. It can be seen that during the gift-seeking period, pop stars are more popular than young adored rappers, who usually dominate the rankings throughout the year. Nineteenth place is the starting position for Ewa Farna with the expected new line “Umami”, her first in seven years. However, this placement does not have such a telling value, because the reigning Golden Nightingale released the album only physically in the first week, the streams will not appear in the order until the next round. Michal David claims the thirty-fifth place with the selection “Moje zapomenuté ploužáky 2”, the forty-eighth line was occupied by the domestic hard rock icon Doga with the novelty “Respekt”. Chinaski with the compilation “On the waves together with body and soul” took fifty-five and the 84th is Helena Vondráčková with a reissue of the holiday collection “Christmas with Helena”.
