Week Ending 22nd July 2012 / Albums Chart

It’s summertime, so compilations have the power in the French albums chart ! Indeed, they were at the top for eight consecutive weeks last year in July and August (“NRJ Summer Hits Only 2011” for 5 weeks, and “NRJ Extravadance 2011” for 3 weeks), and this year it’s history repeating : “NRJ Summer Hits Only 2012” is number one for the third consecutive week (17805 sales, -13%). The compilation has sold 64920 copies so far, which is less than last year when “NRJ Summer Hits Only 2011” had already sold 72837 copies in its first three weeks.

The highest new entry of the week is at 2 and it’s… another compilation, “M6 Hits Eté 2012” with 11242 sales. During the summer, the French albums chart is very predictable, last year (more precisely in the week ending 24th July 2011), “M6 Hits Eté 2011” enters the chart at number 2 with 14181 sales behind… “NRJ Summer Hits Only 2011”. No comment.

In their 20th consecutive week in the top 5, Sexion D’Assaut are down a place at 3 with “L’Apogée” (8909 sales, -13%). It’s down a place also for Shy’m at 4 with “Caméléon” (6738 sales, -21%), she has sold 48189 copies in four weeks.

The second highest new entry is another compilation at 5, “Le Son Dancefloor 2012 Volume 2” with 6269 sales. A former number one for three weeks, “Voyage En France” is back up three places from 9 to 6 for Les Stentors in its 10th week in the top 10 (6103 sales, +33%). In her 74th consecutive week (!) in the top 10, Adele is down two places at 7 with “21” (5660 sales, -9%).

It’s a first top 10 album for Chico & The Gypsies who climb three places from 11 to 8 with “Chico & The Gypsies… & Friends” in their fourth week in the chart (all in the top 20) with 5478 copies sold. Birdy falls two places at 9 with “Birdy” in her 9th non-consecutive week in the top 10 (5071 sales, +5% though). In its 7th week in the top 10, “Hommage” (it’s a tribute to Bob Marley‘s songs) is down four places at 10 for Yannick Noah (4308 sales, -24%).

The other interesting moves in the albums chart this week are new entries. Canardo is at number 23 with “A La Youv” with 2227 sales, it equals the peak position of his album “Papillon” in June 2010. This week’s US number one, “Life Is Good” enters the chart at 33 for Nas (1672 sales), he reached the top 10 once with the album “It Was Written”, number 7 in September 1996. There is also a new entry for the soundtrack of “The Dark Knight Rises” by Hans Zimmer at number 68, I can predict that it will climb the albums chart next week.

Have a very nice week !!!

Week Ending 22nd July 2012 / Singles Chart

“Gary, if you accept it, your mission is to comment the French singles chart every week !” “Ok !”, I replied.

So, what’s new in the top 10 ? Hmmm… nothing. Last week was very static with only a newcomer in the top 10 (fun. featuring Janelle Monáe, from 22 to 10). This week, it’s worse, there are the same songs in the top 10 (like in the UK) !

There is no change at the top of the chart, Carly Rae Jepsen spends her 5th non-consecutive week at number one with “Call Me Maybe” (8414 sales, -1%) in her 13th week in the top 10.

“Et Alors !” stays at number 2 for Shy’m in its 4th week in the top 10 even if its sales figures are down for the second consecutive week (6457, -15%), but her album “Caméléon” is still in the top 5 in its 4th week too, falling just one place from 3 to 4.

Pitbull‘s “Back In Time” gets its peak position this week, climbing from 4 to 3, in its 8th week in the top 10 (5983 sales, -6%). We can remember that Pitbull has been number one in France with two songs : for eight consecutive weeks in July and August 2009 with “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)”, and for one week in March 2011 as a featured artist on Jennifer Lopez‘s “On The Floor”. Can he get a third one ?

A former number two 6 weeks ago, Birdys “Skinny Love” is still climbing back the chart, this week from 5 to 4, in its 11th week in the top 10 (5979 sales, -4%). On the contrary, it’s a bad week for Tacabro‘s “Tacatà”, the song falls from 3 to 5 in its 11th week in the top 10 (5852 sales, -15%).

“Rayos De Sol” is slowly climbing the chart (10-8-8-7-6) for Jose De Rico featuring Henry Mendez. As a consequence, Flo Rida is down a place at 7 with “Whistle” in his 9th week in the top 10. Everybody is static for the number 8-10 positions : Gusttavo Lima is at 8 with “Balada” in his 12th week in the top 10, it’s a 21st week in the top 10 at number 9 for Gotye featuring Kimbra with “Somebody That I Used To Know”, and fun. featuring Janelle Monáe‘s “We Are Young” is at 10 in its second week in the top 10.

But there is hope that things can change next week, indeed “This Is Love” is up the chart every week, this week from 16 to 11 for will.i.am featuring Eva Simons in its fourth week in the top 50 (4324 sales, +22%). Shakira gets her 12th top 15 in France with “Addicted To You”, she is up two places from 17 to 15 (3381 sales, +3%). It’s a good week also for Emeli Sandé, she’s new in the top 20, up 7 places from 26 to 19 with “Next To Me”.

Khaled is up 8 places from 30 to 22 in his second week with “C’est La Vie” (2746 sales, +28%). Like Pitbull, he had two number ones in the French singles chart : for one week in October 1996 with “Aïcha”, and for seven non-consecutive weeks from April to June 2009 as a featured artist on Magic System‘s “Même Pas Fatigué !!!”.

Chris Brown is up 7 places from 34 to 27 with “Don’t Wake Me Up” (2211 sales). As a lead artist, Chris Brown has not been in the top 20 in France since… June 2008 with “With You” (peak position : number 11 in May 2008). But he was at number 6 in February 2012 on Pitbull‘s “International Love” (I think my article is all about Pitbull this week…).

Future hits ? Nicki Minaj‘s “Pound The Alarm” is closer to the top 50, as it’s up from number 72 to 52. BB Brunes are also up from 87 to 62 in their fourth week in the top 200 with “Coups Et Blessures”. Taio Cruz and Pitbull (sorry…) are up a massive 35 places from 100 to 65 with “There She Goes”. In their second week in the chart, Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen climb 30 places from 107 to 77 with “Good Time”.

Future hit ? Not really for Céline Dion (for the moment). In its third week in the chart, “Parler A Mon Père” is only at number 85 this week, falling 10 places…

Have a very good week, everyone !!!

Week Ending 15th July 2012

It’s another rather static week (apart from the number 10 position) in the top 10 of the French singles chart.

Carly Rae Jepsen spends a fourth non-consecutive week at the top with “Call Me Maybe” but her sales figures are very weak (8536, -9%). In fact, we have to come back from the week ending 21st August 2011 to see a “weaker” number one, 8467 sales for Rihanna‘s “Man Down”. In their ninth and final week at the top (the week ending 27th May 2012), Gotye and Kimbra only sold 17 more sales (8553) than Carly Rae Jepsen last week.

Shy’m registers her second number 2 in the French singles chart with “Et Alors !” which is up two places in its third week in the top 10 (7583 sales, -3%). That song equals the chart performance of “Si Tu Savais” which was number two in January 2009.

Tacabro is still in the top 3 for a six non-consecutive week with “Tacatà”, the former number one is down one place at number 3 (6912 sales, -20%). Pitbull‘s “Back In Time” is back up two places at 4 but with decreasing sales (6349, -8%) in its 7th week in the top 10. Birdy is still at 5 with “Skinny Love” in her 10th week in the top 10 (6239 sales, -11%). You can notice that the sales figures of the top 5 are very weak. When last week’s top 5 had sold 41194 copies, this week the top 5 only sold 35619 copies (-14%) !

A former number two 2 weeks ago, “Whistle” by Flo Rida is down three places at 6 in its 8th week in the top 10 (5973 sales, -28% !). “Rayos De Sol” reaches its peak position for Jose De Rico (featuring Henry Mendez), up one place at number 7 in its fourth week in the top 10. Gusttavo Lima is down a place with “Balada” at 8 in his 11th week in the top 10. Gotye is still climbing back the chart ! With Kimbra, he is up one place at number 9 with “Somebody That I Used To Know” in his 20th week in the top 10.

So, the big climber of the week is fun. (featuring Janelle Monáe) with “We Are Young”, up a massive 12 places to reach the top 10 (at 10) for the first time. They sang it in a very popular TV show “Le Grand Journal” on Canal + last week.

will.i.am has a very good week too, his “This Is Love” (featuring Eva Simons) is up 13 places at number 16 in its third week in the top 50 (3548 sales, +47%). Will it be in the top 10 next week ? Place your bets. A former number two in the UK, Chris Brown‘s “Don’t Wake Me Up” climbs the chart, up 16 places at number 34 in its 5th week in the top 200.

But it’s a very disappointing second week in the chart for Céline Dion, her new song “Parler A Mon Père” is down a massive 43 places at number 75 !

We can notice the new entries at number 107 of “Good Time” by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen, and of… Gala‘s new song “Lose Yourself In Me” at number 158. Gala had 2 number ones in France, “Freed From Desire” was at the top for 13 weeks in 1996, and “Let A Boy Cry” for 2 weeks in 1997.

Have a wonderful week !

Week Ending 8th July 2012

Like the other “big” charts in the world, the French singles chart is rather static this week, but we can see some unexpected things. Not at the top though, where we can still find Carly Rae Jepsen who is number one for a third non-consecutive week with “Call Me Maybe”. It’s her second best week in terms of sales figures (9348, +5%) : not bad for a song which is in its 11th week in the top 10.

The unexpected starts now, as Tacabro is back at 2 (from 3) with “Tacatà”. After a 13% fall last week, its sales figures are back up (8672, 82 more sales) in its 9th week in the top 10. I thought that Flo Rida would be very close to the top this week, but I was wrong, as sales of “Whistle” are down for the first time (8288, -5%) and the song is down a place at 3.

Good news for Shy’m, as she still climbs the chart, from 5 to 4 with “Et Alors !” in her second week in the top 10 (7853, +12%). “Et Alors !” equals the best chart position of “Victoire” which was also at number 4 for three consecutive weeks in February and March 2007. “Si Tu Savais” remains (for the moment) her best charting single, peaking at number 2 in January 2009.

Another unexpected move in the chart this week is the one from Birdy whose “Skinny Love” is back up two places at 5 (7033) in its 9th week in the top 10. The sales of Pitbull‘s “Back In Time” are falling for the first time, as the song is down two places at 6 in its 6th week in the top 10 (6923, -3%).

The 7-9 positions are rather static, as Gusttavo Lima is down a place with “Balada” at 7 in his 10th week in the top 10, “Rayos De Sol” is still at 8 for Jose De Rico featuring Henry Mendez, and “Ma Direction” is a non-mover at 9 for Sexion D’Assaut in its 7th week in the top 10.

Gotye is back in the top 10 ! Last week I wondered if he could come back in the top 10 with another song, and he’s already back !… with “Somebody That I Used To Know” (featuring Kimbra). Sales figures are even up this week (5093, 23 more sales), as the song is up a place at 10 in its 19th week in the top 10.

“Payphone” is very close to the top 10, as Maroon 5 (featuring Wiz Khalifa) is up a place at number 11 (5015 sales, +1%). “Addicted To You” is another top 20 hit for Shakira, indeed she’s up 12 places at number 20 (2987 sales, +52%), she was at the top of the French singles chart for seven non-consecutive weeks with “Je L’Aime A Mourir” in December 2011 and January 2012.

The former UK number one “This Is Love” is up 17 places at number 29 for will.i.am featuring Eva Simons (2412 sales, +59%), it’s a good week also for Katy Perry whose “Wide Awake” climbs 7 places at 33 (2171 sales, +30%).

Céline Dion is back in the French singles chart ! But she enters the chart at a rather low number 32 with her new song “Parler A Mon Père” (2234 sales).

It’s a very bad week for Muse, their new song “Survival” is down a massive 66 places in its second week, from 18 to 84 (863 sales, -72%) !

Have a very nice week !

Week Ending 1st July 2012

She’s back !!! As predicted last week, Carly Rae Jepsen is back at the top of the French singles chart with “Call Me Maybe” but it has been a very close battle. Indeed, from last week’s number 2, she has only 182 more sales (8866, -7%) than Flo Rida who is up two places at 2 with “Whistle” (8684, +23%), and only 276 more than last week’s number one, Tacabro‘s “Tacatà” (8590, -13%).

So, in her 10th week in the top 10, Carly Rae Jepsen spends a second week at the top but I can’t predict what will happen in the next few weeks… With “Whistle”, Flo Rida equals his best performance in the French singles chart, “Right Round” (featuring Ke$ha) was also number 2 for one week in April 2009. As for Tacabro, the “physical release effect” only worked for one week, so it will be difficult for “Tacatà” to be back at number one.

For the third week in a row, Pitbull climbs one place with “Back In Time” at 4 (7143 sales, +2%). Like Flo Rida, he can be a contender for the top position.

From last week’s number 13, Shy’m is new in the top 10 with “Et Alors !” (7007 sales, + a massive 77% !), we can explain that by the fact that she released her new album “Caméléon” last week and it’s new at the top of the albums chart with 19962 sales, beating Linkin Park‘s “Living Things” which enters at 2 (17772 sales), and Maroon 5‘s “Overexposed” which is new at number 5 (8055 sales).

After seven weeks in the top 5, Gusttavo Lima is down three places at 6 with “Balada”, Birdy is falling too, down one place at 7 with “Skinny Love”. Jose De Rico (featuring Henry Mendez) is still climbing the chart, up two places at 8 with “Rayos De Sol”. It’s a bad week for Sexion D’Assaut, “Ma Direction” is down two places at number 9 in its 7th week in the top 10, and for Matt Houston (featuring P-Square), his “Positif” is down a place at 10 in its 8th week in the top 10.

After 18 weeks in the top 10, Gotye (featuring Kimbra)’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” is down three places at number 11 with 5070 sales (-15%). Is it possible for him (and for her) to come back with another song in the top 10 ? Place your bets.

There are other interesting movements in the chart this week : there’s a new entry for Muse at 18 with “Survival”. Even if its sales are a lot less important than in the UK (14595 there, and only 3121 in France), its chart position is better than in the UK where it’s only at number 25. Katy Perry‘s “Wide Awake” is new in the top 50, from last week’s number 57, she is up 17 places at 40 (1675 sales), but I doubt she can have a top 10 in France with this song. This week’s UK number one, “This Is Love” for will.i.am featuring Eva Simons is new at number 46 with 1514 sales.

Have a very good week !
