Week Ending 10th June 2012

Gusttavo Lima spends a second week at the top of the French singles chart with “Balada” but his sales have decreased for the first time (11057, -8%). Will the Brazilian singer spend a third week at number one ? It’s not sure at all because his main challenger is Birdy who is up 5 places and is also only 480 sales behind him (10577). “Skinny Love” gets its best position, 4 weeks after having been at number 4.

Last week we could think that Tacabro could hold the number one this week, but he is down one place at 3 with “Tacata'”, moreover his sales have (like Gusttavo Lima) decreased for the first time (from 9760 last week to 9735). Even if she stays at 4, Carly Rae Jepsen has a very good week. Indeed, her “Call Me Maybe” registers its best-sales-week (9173 sales, +15%). It’s impressive because it’s her 7th week in the top 10.

A former number one for nine weeks, Gotye featuring Kimbra are down two places to 5 with “Somebody That I Used To Know” in their 16th week in the top 10 (8337 sales, -4% only).

There are not great changes on the positions between 6 and 10 : at 6, Matt Houston featuring P-Square are down for the 1st time with “Positif “ (from 5), Pitbull is still improving his position with “Back In Time” (from 9 to 7), “Ma Direction” for Sexion D’Assaut is down two places at number 8, Flo Rida gets his best position this week at 9 with “Whistle” (up 1), and Rihanna is down two places in her 9th week in the top 10 with “Where Have You Been” at 10.

Sexion D’Assaut have now three songs in the top 20 : “Ma Direction” (as mentioned above), “Wati House” is up eight places to number 13, whereas “Avant Qu’Elle Parte” (a former number 3 for nine non-consecutive weeks !) is down two places to 20.

Finally, we can notice that the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, Loreen, only spent two weeks in the top 50 with “Euphoria”, she is down a massive 50 places (!) from 26 to 76.

Have a very good week.
