Week Ending 16th September 2012 / Albums Chart

For the third week in a row, there is a new entry at the top of the albums chart, indeed Marc Lavoine gets his second number one album with “Je Descends Du Singe” (24000 sales). He was number one with “Volume 10” for one week in September 2009 when he entered the chart with higher sales (32189). There is also a new entry at number two with The xx‘s “Coexist” (17022 sales). It’s a huge improvement when you compare with their debut album “xx” which only got to number 35 in October 2009.

The best-selling compilation of the week is “NRJ Hits 2012 Vol.2” which is down one place at 3 in its third week in the top 10 (12209 sales, -23%). Lou Doillon has a good second week in the top 10, as she only falls one place at number four with “Places” (11665 sales, -5%). Last week’s number one, C2C‘s “Tetra” is at 5 in its second week in the top 10 (9907 sales, -53%).

Bob Dylan gets his highest charting album in France, as “Tempest” is new at number six (7866 sales). It’s his second top 10 album, after “Together Through Life” which was number 9 in May 2009. “Ladilafé” is down three at 7 for Tryo in its third week in the top 10 (7172 sales, -34%), the album has sold 40308 copies so far. The other compilation in the top 10, “Zumba Fitness Dance Party 2012” falls three places at 8 in its eighth week in the top 10 (7081 sales, -15%).

In its 28th consecutive week in the top 10, Sexion D’Assaut‘s “L’Apogée” is out of the top 6 for the first time, as the album is down three at number 9 (7073 sales, -10%). Wax Tailor gets his second top 10 album, he is new at 10 with “Dusty Rainbow From The Dark” (5364 sales). He reached number 9 in September 2009 with “In The Mood For Life”.

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After seven weeks in the top 10, Keen’V falls seven places at number 15 with “La Vie Est Belle”. Mark Knopfler‘s “Privateering” is down six at 16 in its second week in the chart. Last week’s new entries, Cat Power‘s “Sun” falls 15 places at 22, and “Foule Monstre” is down 23 at number 32 for Eiffel.

ZZ Top‘s “La Futura” is new at 13, it’s their first top 15 album since September 1996 when “Rhythmeen” reached number 14. Emily Loizeau enters the chart at 21 with “Mothers & Tygers” (3316 sales), she was at number 11 with “Pays Sauvage” in February 2009. David Guetta‘s “Nothing But The Beat 2.0” is new at 35 (1907 sales), whereas his “Nothing But The Beat” is up a massive 44 places at number 17 in its 55th week in the chart (3704 sales) !

It’s a big disappointment for Colonel Reyel‘s new album “Soldat De L’Amour”, indeed it only enters at number 43 (1563 sales). His debut album “Au Rapport” entered at number one in April 2011 with 25666 copies sold, and spent two weeks at the top. “Algiers” is new at 46 for Calexico, it’s their third top 50 album, after “Feast Of Wire” (number 39 in February 2003) and “Carried To Dust” (number 40 in September 2008).

It’s a new entry at number 49 for Pet Shop Boys“Elysium”, it’s their first top 50 album since October 1999 when “Nightlife” reached number 36. The Script‘s “#3” only enters at number 173, it’s not so surprising, as “The Script” reached number 38 in October 2008, and “Science & Faith” never entered the top 200.

Have a very nice week !
