Over the past couple of weeks, we have been bringing you the regular updates of the only local music chart within the Maltese Islands and there have been quite an interesting amount of artists making their way into the chart, with some of the songs reaching the position people expect them to reach whilst others fail to live to such expectations. It seems that over the past two weeks, things have changed a lot with some entries leaving the chart, and another batch entering whilst the positions continue to change week after week providing more excitement to those listening in to the show every Saturday afternoon from 13:30 till 14:30 on Bay Radio along with Nathan D. It is extremely important to note that the positions are decided through an accumulation of airplay throughout the week of local songs.

This week was quite a quiet one with regards to brand new entries because there was only one which has made the cut into the top ten actually with N'Heaven Feat. Emma Lock and their song 'Destiny' debuting at position number nine. In the meantime, as it has been known over quite a number of weeks, there are a couple of new songs which debut during the show and this week one could easily recognize the remix of this years' Malta Eurovision Song Contest entry 'Love Me Like Your Money' performed by Kelly Schembri as well as the new song by Glen Vella which is a cover of the song 'Ain't Nobody' originally performed by Chaka Khan. It seems like there is a trend that festival singers are developing a sound for the radios apart from making a name for themselves within the ever so popular nationally held promotional contest which sees the best talent taking to the stage with the aim of representing the nation at the annual Eurovision Song Contest.

In the meantime, going through the songs which have seen a steady rise over the past week, there are quite a number of stunning tracks starting off with the group Wintermoods whose latest effort entitled 'Sun Won't Shine' has now peaked at number #1 following an array of weeks at positions #2 and #3 respectively. The next song which has gone up over the past couple of days is 'Bottled My Teardrops' sung by Davinia which now stands at position #3 closely followed by former Malta Eurovision Song Contest finalist Raquela whose Boris Cezek and Dean Muscat track 'Entertain Me' peaks at number #4 this week. The next two positions in the chart also feature entries which have risen because in position number #5, one would find the group Three Stops To China and their track 'The Courtney Effect' whilst the latest single of Airport Impressions entitled 'Retro Star' launched at Numero Uno days ago manages to climb to #6 looking for a higher position in the next couple of weeks. The last entry to continue rising is found at position #8 with Funk Initiative's 'Paris' occupying the spot.

With the positive also comes a negative aspect and there are a number of tracks which are now heading down and out of the chart making the way for new acts and entries. One should guess that the most notable is none other than the leader of the chart for the past two weeks coming from The Crowns and their song 'Memories' which has not fallen to position #2 keeping adrift to the top part of the chart. Also going down following their peak last week are Bridget Bone whose song 'Monkey Role' is now down to position #7. One last song which has taken a tumble and heading out following a very short stay it seems is 'Memories' by the group Cable 35 who have just launched their debut album in the past couple of days. The next update will of course be next Saturday and we will be keeping you posted. Check out the whole show through the media player below.
