Week Ending 26th August 2012 / Albums Chart

Only four compilations are in this week’s albums chart top 10 (from last week’s six), but they are all in the top 6. “Zumba Fitness Dance Party 2012” is still at the top for a third non-consecutive week in its 5th week in the top 10 (15757 sales, +9%). Sexion D’Assaut have a very good week, indeed “L’Apogée” is up one place at 2 in its 25th consecutive week in the top 6 (8560 sales, -2%). We can notice the very big gap between the two best-selling albums of the week, “L’Apogée”‘s sales only represent 54% of the number one album.

A former number one 2 weeks ago, “NRJ Extravadance 2012 Vol. 2” is down a place at 3 in its fourth week in the top 10 (8294 sales, -14%). Keen’V is still in the top five for the 5th consecutive week, as “La Vie Est Belle” is back up a place at number 4 (6983 sales, -13%). The album has sold 54122 copies so far.

The other compilations in the top 10 are “M6 Hits Eté 2012” which is back up a place at 5 in its 6th week in the top 10 (6297 sales, -6%), and “NRJ Summer Hits Only 2012” which falls two places at number 6 in its eighth week in the top 10 (6216 sales, -23%).

Chico & The Gypsies don’t move at 7 with “Chico & The Gypsies… & Friends” in their fourth week in the top 10 (5806 sales, +2%). Adele is not in this week’s US Top 10, but she stays at 8 in France with “21” and it’s her 79th consecutive week in the top 10 (5467 sales, -2%) !

As you can find “Born To Die” for 9.99 €, Lana Del Rey is back up 19 places at number 9 in her 17th week in the top 10 (4329 sales). She topped the albums chart for two weeks in February. After only a one week absence, Shy’m spends her 8th week in the top 10, as “Caméléon” is up two at number 10 (4102 sales).

Amy Winehouse re-enters the chart at 20 with “Lioness : Hidden Treasures”, the album spent three consecutive weeks at number 2 in December 2011.

The highest new entry of the week is for Bloc Party with “Four” at number 21. It’s their fourth top 30 album, as “Silent Alarm” reached number 14 in February 2005, “A Weekend In The City” number 10 in February 2007, and “Intimacy” number 22 in November 2008.

Nossa‘s debut album “Nossa” is a new entry at 24, their song “Mas Que Nada” climbs a massive 31 places at 62 (its peak position) in its fourth week in the singles chart. There is also a new entry at 55 for Lynyrd Skynyrd with “Last Of A Dyin’ Breed”.

Number one in the US this week, Trey Songz only enters at number 64 with “Chapter V” which is though a major improvement in comparison with his last album “Passion, Pain & Pleasure” which was only number 138 in September 2010. Frank Ocean‘s “Channel Orange” got its physical release, so it re-enters the chart at 67, higher than the number 91 it reached in the week ending 15th July with downloads only.

The Darkness are new at 107 with “Hot Cakes”, they have never been successful in France, as “Permission To Land” reached only number 62 in February 2004, and “One Way Ticket To Hell” was at 132 in December 2005. Owl City‘s “The Midsummer Station” enters at number 192 with 368 sales only, he reached number 88 with “Ocean Eyes” in April 2010.

Have a very nice week !

Week Ending 26th August 2012 / Singles Chart

A very static top 5 and two new entries in the top 20, that’s how we can sum up the French singles chart this week. So Alex Ferrari stays at the top for a second week with “Bara Bará Bere Berê” in his fourth week in the top 10 (6570 sales, +6%). “Call Me Maybe” is still at 2 for Carly Rae Jepsen in its 18th week in the top 10 (5493 sales, -11%). In these 18 weeks, “Call Me Maybe” has sold 136499 copies, which is very low for a song that has spent eight weeks at number one. “This Is Love” is a non-mover at 3 for will.i.am featuring Eva Simons in its 5th week in the top 10 (5161 sales, -8%). It’s interesting to notice that only three songs have sold more than 5000 copies in this week’s chart, and it’s the case for the third consecutive week (sigh).

There is no change at 4 for Sexion D’Assaut, their “Wati House” spends its fourth non-consecutive week in the top 10 (4453 sales, -2%), and “Party Shaker” is still at 5 for R.I.O. featuring Nicco in its fourth week in the top 10.

Birdy is up 2 places at number 6 with “Skinny Love” in her 16th week in the top 10 with 3706 sales. We can notice she needed 6371 sales in the week ending 24th June to be in that same position…

For the first time since the week ending 5th February (“Give Me All Your Luvin'” entered at number 4 for Madonna featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.), there is a new entry in the top 10, “She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)” goes straight to number 7 for David Guetta featuring Sia (3497 sales). It’s the 16th top 10 hit for David Guetta, he had two number one singles with “Gettin’ Over You” (with Chris Willis, Fergie, and LMFAO, for one week in June 2010), and “Sweat” (with Snoop Dogg, for two weeks in May 2011). “She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)” is the second top 10 hit for Sia after… “Titanium” (with David Guetta) which was number 3 in January.

Pitbull is down two places this week at number 8 with “Back In Time” in his 13th week in the top 10 (3410 sales). In his second week in the top 10, DJ Mam’s is already down two places with “Zumba He Zumba Ha”. “Tacatà” is down one place at 10 for Tacabro in its 16th week in the top 10 (3263 sales).

After 23 non-consecutive weeks in the top 10, “Somebody That I Used To Know” is down one place at 11 for Gotye featuring Kimbra. Will it come back in the top 10 ? With the very low sales figures, you never know.

“Good Time” might be in the top 10 in next week’s chart, as it’s up 9 places at number 13 for Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen in its 7th week in the top 200 (2792 sales). It’s the biggest hit in France for Owl City, “Fireflies” was his other top 20 song, reaching number 17 in April 2010.

The other new entry in the top 20 is Muse with “Madness” at number 14 (2734 sales). Surprisingly, it is only their second top 20 hit in France, after “Survival” which reached number 18 in June. But they are more considered as album sellers in France, indeed they had two number one albums with “Absolution” (for one week in September 2003), and “The Resistance” (for one week in September 2009).

There are also interesting climbers in this week’s chart, “Pursuit Of Happiness” gets its highest chart position at number 16 (up 9 places) for Kid Cudi featuring MGMT and Ratatat in its 24th week in the chart, Selena Gomez & The Scene are up eight places at 23 with “Love You Like A Love Song”. Nicki Minaj gets her peak position with “Pound The Alarm” which is up 5 places at 30, as a lead artist she had one top 10 hit with “Starships” at number 5 in March and April. Asaf Avidan & The Mojos are also climbing the chart, up six places at 36 with “One Day / Reckoning Song” in their 10th week in the top 200.

We can also notice the third highest new entry of the week at number 68 for Shy’m with “On Se Fout De Nous” (823 sales).

Have a very good week, everyone !

Week Ending 19th August 2012 / Albums Chart

It’s the seventh consecutive week we can see a compilation at the top of the French albums chart (in comparison with eight last summer), and this week the best-selling one is “Zumba Fitness Dance Party 2012” which is back up one place (it was at the top two weeks ago) in its fourth week in the top 10 with 14411 sales (+5%). It has sold 59777 copies so far. In its third week in the top 10, “NRJ Extravadance 2012 Vol. 2” is down one place with 9663 sales (-31%).

It’s a good week for Sexion D’Assaut, “L’Apogée” is the best-selling artist album this week, climbing three places at number 3 in its 24th consecutive week in the top 10 (8722 sales, -6%). A former number one (for 4 weeks in July and August), “NRJ Summer Hits Only 2012” is down one place at 4 with 8037 sales (-32%). In its seven weeks in the top 10, it has sold 117751 copies.

Keen’ V spends his fourth week in the top 5 with “La Vie Est Belle”, the album is down a place at 5 with 8005 sales (-31%). There is another compilation at 6, “M6 Hits Eté 2012” is down a place in its fifth week in the top 10 (6704 sales, -37%).

Chico & The Gypsies get their peak position this week with “Chico & The Gypsies… & Friends”, as they are up three places at number 7 in their third week in the top 10 (5676 sales, +26%). Adele spends her 78th consecutive week in the top 10 with “21”, and the album is down a place this week at 8 with 5598 sales (-0.3%).

The highest new entry of the week is… a compilation (sigh), “100 Hits Eté 2012” enters the chart at number 9 with 4641 sales. There are six compilations in the top 10 this week, as “Skyrock 2012 Vol. 3” is up one place at 10 in its second week in the chart.

Two albums are out of the top 10, Shy’m is down three places at 12 with “Caméléon” after seven weeks in the top 10, and “Tubes Eté 2012” is down 7 places at 15 in its second week in the chart.

“Anastasis” is a new entry at number 13 for Dead Can Dance, the last time they appeared in the top 50 was with the album “Spiritchaser” which was number 15 in June 1996. Elvis Presley sadly passed away 35 years ago, and he’s new at 16 with a new best-of, “Elvis – La Collection RTL” with 2691 sales.

We can also notice the new entry at 39 of “A Symphony Of British Music -Music For The Closing Ceremony Of London 2012 Olympic Games”, “Isles Of Wonder – Music For The Opening Ceremony Of London 2012 Olympic Games” only spent two weeks in the top 200, peaking at number 160 three weeks ago. It may be a consequence of their performance during the closing ceremony, One Direction are up 10 places at 37 with “Up All Night” in their 28th week in the chart, they peaked at number 15 in February. Emeli Sandé has also a good week, she is up 17 places at 43 with “Our Version Of Events”.

Another interesting climb this week is that “The Very Best Of Shaggy / Chaka Demus & Pliers / Aswad” is up a massive 26 places at number 36 in its second week.

Have a wonderful week !

Week Ending 19th August 2012 / Singles Chart

The big news this week is that we have a new number one ! And it’s… Alex Ferrari with “Bara Bará Bere Berê”. The song’s chart run has been incredible, indeed “Bara Bará Bere Berê” only spends its fourth week in the chart (34-7-3-1) ! So it’s a big achievement, but the bad news is that Alex Ferrari has the lowest sales figures for a number one single since the downloads have been included in the French singles chart in the week ending 30th January 2011. He only sold 6218 copies (+23%), which is less than the 6879 copies Carly Rae Jepsen sold with “Call Me Maybe” in the chart last week ! We can compare with last year’s chart : in the week ending 21st August 2011, Alex Ferrari would only be at number 4 behind Rihanna with “Man Down” (8467 sales), LMFAO featuring Lauren Bennett & GoonRock with “Party Rock Anthem” (6788 sales), and Mika with “Elle Me Dit”  (6398 sales).

So Carly Rae Jepsen‘s reign at the top is over (for the moment, nobody knows), after eight non-consecutive weeks at number one, “Call Me Maybe” is down one place in its 17th week in the top 10 (6152 sales, -11%).

Has “This Is Love” lost its chances to reach the top of the chart ? Indeed, it’s down one place at 3 in its fourth week in the top 10, but everything is not lost for will.i.am (featuring Eva Simons) because the sales figures are better than in last week’s chart (5595, +5%). “Wati House” is still climbing the chart, it’s up one place at 4 for Sexion D’Assaut in its third week in the top 10 (4545 sales, +1%). It’s also a very good week for R.I.O. featuring Nicco, “Party Shaker” is up four places at number 5 in its third week in the top 10 (4294 sales, +9%). Pitbull is back up a place at 6 with “Back In Time” in his 12th week in the top 10.

Do we have a new contender for the number one spot ? It might be the case, as DJ Mam’s is up 9 places from 16 to 7 with “Zumba He Zumba Ha” with 3723 sales. We can think that Birdy is not a contender anymore, however her “Skinny Love” is back up two places at number 8 in its 15th week in the top 10. There are two former number ones for the rest of the top 10, as “Tacatà” is down a place at 9 for Tacabro in its 15th week in the top 10, and… “Somebody That I Used To Know” is back up two places at 10 for Gotye featuring Kimbra in its 23rd week in the top 10.

Two songs drop out of the top 10 this week. Shy’m is down five places at 11 with “Et Alors !” after seven weeks in the top 10 (3414 sales, -23%). It’s more surprising to see the massive fall (from 4 to 15) of Jose De Rico featuring Henry Mendez with “Rayos De Sol”, indeed they were slowly climbing the chart during their eight weeks in the top 10 (10-8-8-7-6-6-5-4).

It’s a good week for M83, “Midnight City” is up six places at 21 in its 29th week in the chart. “Good Time” gets its highest chart position this week, as it’s up four at number 22 for Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen. It’s worth noticing that Alex Clare is up a massive 13 places at 28 with “Too Close” in his second week in the top 50 (2243 sales).

What about the songs featured in the Olympics closing ceremony ? The most popular is “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush (number 24 in December 1985) who is up 107 places at number 64 (935 sales). One Direction‘s “What Makes You Beautiful” (number 39 in March) is also up from 155 to 84 (751 sales). There are also some re-entries in the top 100, Oasis at 79 with “Wonderwall” (number 10 in January 1996), Muse at 87 with “Survival” (number 18 in June). Emeli Sandé gets a new entry at number 88 with “Read All About It (Pt. III)”George Michael enters only at number 112 with “White Light” (583 sales), and “Wannabe” ( number one for three weeks in September and October 1996) is a re-entry for the Spice Girls at number 173 (349 sales).

Number one in the US this week, Taylor Swift is a new entry at a low number 108 with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (612 sales). But it’s not very surprising, as she has been successful in France with only one song, ” Love Story” which reached number 14 in July and August 2009.

Have a great seven days !

Week Ending 12th August 2012 / Albums Chart

Compilations still lead the way in the French albums chart this week, but there is a new number one. “NRJ Extravadance 2012 Vol.2” is up one place in its second week in the top 10 (14009 sales, -21%). Like last week’s number one “Zumba Fitness Dance Party 2012” (down a place at 2 in its third week in the top 10 with 13702 sales, -28%), “NRJ Extravadance 2012 Vol.2” needed a second week to reach the top spot. Last August, “NRJ Extravadance 2011” went straight to number one and stayed there for three consecutive weeks. As you can see, summers 2011 and 2012 are very similar in the French albums chart…

There are five (!) compilations in the 10 best-selling albums of the week, and the third one is a non-mover at 3 for “NRJ Summer Hits Only 2012”. A former number one (for 4 weeks), it spends its 6th week in the top 10 (11752 sales, -27%).

The best-selling artist album is still Keen’ V who is back up a place at 4 with “La Vie Est Belle” in his third week in the top 10 (11528 sales, -10%). The album has sold 39134 copies so far.

Four compilations are in the top 5 this week, as “M6 Hits Eté 2012” is down a place at 5 in its fourth week in the top 10 (10582 sales, -28%). French people don’t need to download singles, they just buy compilations in which they can find all the songs they like. In the UK, “Now That’s What I Call Music 82” is very successful too, but you can’t imagine a number one in the singles chart selling less than 40000 copies. It’s the same thing also in the US where the best-selling album this week is “Now That’s What I Call Music 43”. In these two big markets, downloads’ sales figures are up, they are up in France too, but with a very small proportion.

“L’Apogée” is a non-mover at 6 for Sexion D’Assaut in its 23rd consecutive week in the top 10 (9302 sales), but it can’t compete with the 77th consecutive week in the top 10 for Adele‘s “21” which also doesn’t move at 7 (5614 sales, -21%).

There is a new compilation in the top 10, as “Tubes Eté 2012” enters the chart at number 8 (5118 sales). Shy’m is still in the top 10, her “Caméléon” is down just a place at 9 in its 7th week in the top 10 (4561 sales, -22%). Chico & The Gypsies are back in the top 10, “Chico & The Gypsies… & Friends” is up three places at 10 in its 7th week in the top 20 (4501 sales). The album reached number 8 in the week ending 22nd July.

“Cut The World” is a new entry at number 20 for Antony & The Johnsons, it is their third album to reach the top 20, after “The Crying Light” (number 4 in January 2009) and “Swanlights” (number 16 in October 2010).

Jean-Luc Lahaye is new at 34 with his best-of “30 Ans De Chansons”. It’s his first appearance in the top 50 since April 2004 when “Gloria” reached number 28. He was very successful in the eighties, we can notice that his song “Papa Chanteur” was number one for one week in the singles chart in January 1986.

Have a very good week !

Week Ending 12th August 2012 / Singles Chart

There are no new songs in the top 10 (apart from a “re-entry”) but there are some interesting moves. Let’s start with the number one song and… there is no change at the top of the French singles chart this week, Carly Rae Jepsen still reigns supreme with “Call Me Maybe” for the eighth non-consecutive week in her 16th week in the top 10. But she has the lowest sales figures for a number one since downloads have been included in the French singles chart in the week ending 30th January 2011, indeed she has only sold 6879 copies (-17%), that total includes 6192 download sales and 687 physical ones. “Call Me Maybe” held already that sad record when it sold only 7839 copies just two weeks ago. She is the first lead female singer to stay that long at number one since Jena Lee who stayed at the top for 11 consecutive weeks with “J’Aimerais Tellement” from October to December 2009.

So will.i.am (featuring Eva Simons) will have to wait for another week to catch the number one spot as they don’t move at 2 with “This Is Love” in their third week in the top 10 and we can see that the song’s sales figures are falling for the first time (5337, -9%). Will “This Is Love” be the next number one ? Right behind them, there is a real big new contender, as Alex Ferrari climbs the chart very quickly, indeed he is up four places with “Bara Bará Bere Berê” in what is only his third week in the chart (and second in the top 10) with 5066 sales (+13%) !

“Rayos De Sol”‘s chart run is intriguing. Here is a song which is in its eighth week in the top 10 and it is climbing the chart very slowly (10-8-8-7-6-6-5) and this week it’s up one place at number 4 for Jose De Rico featuring Henry Mendez (4505 sales, -12%). Could this be also a contender ? Or Sexion D’Assaut who are back in the top 10 with “Wati House”, the song is up six places at number 5 (4480 sales), it had already been in the top 10 before, at 10 in the week ending 17th June (with higher sales, 4907 !). We can explain their climb by the release of the video. It’s the third single from their album “L’Apogée” to reach the top 5, after “Avant Qu’Elle Parte” (number 3 for nine non-consecutive weeks from January to April 2012) and “Ma Direction” (number 5 in May 2012).

If we have new big contenders for the top spot, we have also the fallers of the week, and we can begin with Shy’m, she’s down three places at 6 with “Et Alors !” in her 7th week in the top 10 (4430 sales, -18%). Even if it hasn’t been number one, “Et Alors !” will stay as a very big hit of the summer 2012 in France. Pitbull is also a faller, down one place at 7 with “Back In Time” in his 11th week in the top 10 (4179 sales, -17%). After 12 consecutive weeks in the top 5, “Tacatà” is down four places at number 8 for Tacabro in its 14th week in the top 10 (4103 sales, -23%).

“Party Shaker” reaches a new peak position, as it is up one place at 9 for R.I.O. (featuring Nicco) in its second week in the top 10 (3938 sales, -10%). It may be the last week in the top 10 for Birdy, her “Skinny Love” is down one place at 10 in its 14th week in the top 10 (3825 sales, -13%).

Outside the top 10, we can notice that “Zumba He Zumba Ha” is up three places at 16 for DJ Mam’s (featuring Jessy Matador and Luis Guisao) in its 11th week in the top 200. Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen are still climbing the chart, as they are up seven places this week at number 26 with “Good Time” in their 5th week in the chart (2267 sales). Owl City reached number 17 with “Fireflies” in April 2010.

Selena Gomez & The Scene are in the top 30 in France for the first time, as “Love You Like A Love Song” is up two places at 30 in their 10th week in the chart. It’s a good week also for Jenifer, “Sur Le Fil” is up a massive 14 places from 48 to 34 (1676 sales), it reached number 24 as a new entry in the week ending 3rd June.

There are two newcomers in the top 50, Alex Clare is at number 41 with “Too Close”, up 28 places in his third week in the top 200, BB Brunes are also new with “Coups Et Blessures”, the song climbs 11 places at number 48 in its 7th week in the chart.

Have a very good week, everyone !

Week Ending 5th August 2012 / Albums Chart

Since the week ending 30th January 2011, compilations are present in the combined albums chart, and this week something unusual happened : the four best-selling albums in France are all compilations. In the past, we could see three of them in the top 4 (as last week), but we never see an entire top 4 albums with compilations only. But for the moment, there are no new releases from “big” artists, and compilations are always very good sellers in France during the summer, indeed they had already dominated the albums chart for eight consecutive weeks last year with “NRJ Summer Hits Only 2011” (five weeks) and “NRJ Extravadance 2011” (three weeks).

There is a change at the top of the albums chart, as “Zumba Fitness Dance Party 2012” is up two places in its second week in the chart (18930 sales, +49%). The highest new entry of the week is at 2 with “NRJ Extravadance 2012 Volume 2” with 17795 sales. As mentioned above, “NRJ Extravadance 2011” spent three weeks at the top, it entered the chart at the top with better sales (26678) in the week ending 7th August 2011.

The last four weeks’ number one, “NRJ Summer Hits Only 2012” is now at 3 in its 5th week in the top 10 (16030 sales, -6%). “M6 Hits Eté 2012” is a non-mover at 4 in its third week in the top 10 (14778 sales, +17%).

The highest artist album is at number 5, and it’s down three places for Keen’V with “La Vie Est Belle” in his second week in the top 10 (12785 sales, -14%).

For the first time, “L’Apogée” is out of the top 5 for Sexion D’Assaut in its 22nd week in the top 10, but it’s their most successful album in terms of weeks spent in the top 10, indeed “L’Apogée” has beaten “L’Ecole Des Points Vitaux” which was there for 21 weeks from April to August 2010. But it will be difficult for them to equal Adele‘s “21” which doesn’t move at number 7 in its 76th (!) consecutive week in the top 10 (7079 sales, +21%).

In her 6th week in the top 10, Shy’m is down two places at 8 with “Caméléon” (5826 sales, -4%), it has sold 60074 copies so far. A former number 6 five weeks ago, Didier Barbelivien is back in the top 10 with his “Best Of 3 CD”, he climbs from 13 to 9 in his seventh week in the chart (5329 sales). “Voyage En France” is a non-mover at 10 for Les Stentors in its 12th week in the top 10 (5217 sales, +18%).

It’s a good week for Maroon 5, as “Overexposed” is back in the top 20, up seven places at number 18 in its 6th week in the chart. “Overexposed” reached number 5 as a new entry in the week ending 1st July. The second new entry is at number 25 and it’s… another compilation, “Summer Hits 2012”.

The US number one, Rick Ross enters the French albums chart at number 29 with “God Forgives, I Don’t”. It’s a huge improvement for Rick Ross, as he only charted with one album, “Port Of Miami” which spent one week in the chart, reaching number 165 in August 2006.

Have a wonderful week !
