For weeks, the media debated Ballermann’s song “Layla.” In favor of the creators: the song is the hit of the summer of the year.
The controversial song “Layla” by DJ Robin & Schürze is the hit of the summer of 2022. The song, which has been criticized for being sexist, has established itself in the charts against international competitors such as “Ferrari” by James Hype & Miggy Dela Rosa, according to GfK Entertainment With.
“Layla” topped the German charts for five weeks continuously and achieved gold status. The song has been viewed over 60 million times on streaming services. “There’s no getting around ‘Layla’ this summer,” the institute said.
“We don’t need to discuss it”
From the perspective of the performers, DJ Robin and Schürze, the week-long debate on sexism surrounding the song was a major contributor to the success. “It was excellent for us,” said the latter of the German press agency. “Of course it got us excited, we don’t need to discuss it. You can’t have more publicity.”
