Armin van Buuren meest succesvolle DJ in Nederlandse Top 40

Vandaag is Armin van Buuren’s nieuwe single ‘We Are Here To Make Some Noise’ op nummer 32 van de Nederlandse Top 40 binnengekomen. Op zich geen bijzonder feit gezien de wereldwijde populariteit die de DJ en producer geniet, ware het niet dat dit de 20ste hit single is waarmee hij in de Top 40 staat. Daarmee is Armin van Buuren de meest succesvolle Nederlandse DJ in de geschiedenis van de Top 40, die in 1965 door Stichting Top 40 in het leven werd geroepen. Zowel Tiësto als Ferry Corsten hebben minder noteringen in de Nederlandse hitlijst.

Zijn eerste Top 40 notering was in de zomer van 2001, met single ‘The Sound of Goodbye’ onder zijn Perpetuous Dreamer alias. De single waarmee hij het hoogste eindigde, is ‘In & Out Of Love‘, zijn samenwerking met zangeres Sharon den Adel, die in augustus 2008 op nummer 10 binnenkwam. ‘We Are Here To Make Some Noise’, het officiële strijdlied in de EK campagne van Radio 538, verovert momenteel de wereldwijde charts.

Erik de Zwart, voorzitter van de Stichting Nederlandse Top 40:”De strijdliederen voor de grote voetbaltoernooien hebben vaak een beetje carnaval-achtige uitstraling, Armin van Buuren laat zien dat het ook anders kan! Met 20 hitnoteringen in de Nederlandse Top 40 laat Armin zien dat zijn muziek velen aanspreekt en dat wordt door ons goed gesignaleerd!”
