The album has sold 521,004 copies so far. When was the last time Céline Dion was at the top of the French albums chart at Christmas time ?

“Monkey Me” falls one place at four for Mylène Farmer (71,978 sales / +8%). In its three weeks in the top 10, “Monkey Me” has sold 285,461 copies. In his fourth week in the top 10, Patrick Bruel is up one at number five with “Lequel De Nous” (57,219 sales / +56%), the album has sold 186,050 copies so far.

“O Filles De L’Eau” slips one place at six for Nolwenn Leroy (50,552 sales / +29%). In its four weeks in the top 10, “O Filles De L’Eau” has sold 165,321 copies. “The 2nd Law” climbs two at seven for Muse in its 10th week in the top 10 (45,025 sales / +81%), it was at the top of the albums chart for three consecutive weeks in October.

Rihanna‘s “Unapologetic” stays at number eight in its fifth week in the top 10 (36,386 sales / +43%), 141,926 copies of “Unapologetic” have been sold so far. In her fourth week in the top 10, Tal is up one place at nine with “Le Droit De Rêver” (36,128 copies / +55%). “Opéra Rouge” is back up six places at number ten for Vincent Niclo & Les Choeurs De L’Armée Rouge in its eighth week in the top 10 (35,170 sales / +86%).

Only one album drops out of the top 10 this week. Bruno Mars falls nine at number 16 with “Unorthodox Jukebox” in his second week on the chart (26,810 sales / +3%). The album has sold 52,730 copies so far.

Have a very good week !
