Week Ending 9th December 2012 / Albums Chart

There is no surprise at the top of the albums chart this week, as ‘Monkey Me’ enters at number one for Mylène Farmer. It’s her seventh album to reach the top in the 2000s, after ‘Mylenium Tour’ (for one week in December 2000), ‘Avant Que L’Ombre…’ (for three weeks in April 2005), ‘Avant Que L’Ombre… A Bercy’ (for one week in December 2006), ‘Point De Suture’ (for one week in August 2008), ‘N°5 On Tour’ (for one week in December 2009), and ‘Bleu Noir’ (for three weeks in December 2010).

‘Monkey Me’ sold 147,512 copies which is the best weekly sales figures in 2012, beating Les Enfoirés with ‘Le Bal Des Enfoirés 2012’ which sold 137,730 copies in the week ending 18th March. ‘Monkey Me’ sold more copies than Mylène Farmer‘s last three studio albums in their first week, ‘Avant Que L’Ombre’ sold 136,318 copies in April 2005, ‘Point De Suture’ 108,596 in August 2008, and ‘Bleu Noir’ 139,176 in December 2010.

There is no move for ‘Génération Goldman’ at number two in its third week in the top 10 (77,814 sales / +32%), the album was at the top two weeks ago and has sold 207,574 copies so far. ‘Sans Attendre’ stays at three for Céline Dion (65,220 sales / +13%), the album has sold 302,451 copies in its five weeks in the top 10. Johnny Hallyday is back up two places at number four with ‘L’Attente’ in his fourth week in the top 10 (40,105 sales / +9%). ‘O Filles De L’Eau’ doesn’t move at five for Nolwenn Leroy in its second week on the chart (34,195 sales / -17%).

Patrick Bruel falls five places at number six with ‘Lequel De Nous’ in his second week in the top 10 (32,624 sales / -45%), his last studio album ‘Des Souvenirs Devant…’ spent four consecutive weeks in the top five in March and April 2006. Even if we can consider it’s more difficult to stay in the top five in December, it’s a bit disappointing for Patrick Bruel. ‘Unapologetic’ is still at seven for Rihanna in its third week in the top 10 (22,060 sales / +7%), the album has sold 80,084 copies so far.

M. Pokora is back in the top 10, as ‘A La Poursuite Du Bonheur’ is up three at number eight in its ninth week in the top 10 (18,324 sales), the album reached number two in March. ‘Opéra Rouge’ is a non-mover at nine for Vincent Niclo & Les Choeurs De L’Armée Rouge in its seventh week in the top 10 (17,986 sales / +32%). Muse‘s ‘The 2nd Law’ is back up two places at ten in its eighth week in the top 10, it was number one for three consecutive weeks in October.

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. M slips two at number 12 with ‘Il’, the album reached number four and spent three weeks in the top 10. Booba falls 12 places at 16 with ‘Futur’ in his second week in the top 200 (12,327 sales / -75%). ‘Girl On Fire’ is down 13 at number 21 for Alicia Keys in its second week on the chart (9,851 sales / -40%).

In her 38th week in the top 200, Tal is up six places at 11 with ‘Le Droit De Rêver’ (16,001 sales), the album reached number seven as a new entry in March and was in the top 10 for two weeks. ‘Le Calme Et La Tempête’ is the second highest new entry of the week at number 14 for Olivia Ruiz (14,619 sales). She had two number one albums, with ‘La Femme Chocolat (Mmm…)’ for one week in August 2006, and ‘Miss Météores’ for one week in April 2009, it debuted with 25,515 sales.

In its 39th week on the chart, ‘Our Version Of Events’ is up 12 places at 23 for Emeli Sandé. Keny Arkana is new at 24 with ‘Tout Tourne Autour Du Soleil’, her last album ‘L’Esquisse Vol. 2’ reached number 11 in May 2011. ‘La Balade Du Poète’ is a new entry at number 28 for Serge Lama, ‘L’Age D’Horizons’ was number 15 in November 2008.

Have a great seven days !

  1. The more than 147.000 units of Mylènes “Monkey me” includes physical and digital sales. The about 139.000 of her previews album “Bleu noir” are physical sales only. With digital sales, “Bleu noir” was sold about 1000 units more than “Monkey me”.

    However it’s a great success. ^^

  2. Stefan, I will give you the facts. 😉
    ‘Bleu Noir’ was released digitally one week before the physical one and sold 9,134 copies in its first week.
    When “Bleu Noir” was released physically, it sold 2,852 downloads, so with the 139,176 physical copies, it sold 142,028 copies THAT week.
    Like you said, it’s a great success anyway.

    Thanks for your comments. 🙂
