In its fourth week in the top 10, “Unorthodox Jukebox” is still at number eight for Bruno Mars (around 5,000 sales / +4%). Birdy is back in the top 10 as her eponymous album is up three places at nine in its 39th week on the chart (4,888 sales / +25%). “O Filles De L’Eau” falls three at number ten for Nolwenn Leroy (4,570 sales / -6%), the album has sold 206,448 copies in its nine weeks on the chart.

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After seven weeks in the top 10, Patrick Bruel is down seven places at 17 with “Lequel De Nous”, the album entered at the top in December. “Opéra Rouge” falls 14 at number 23 for Vincent Niclo & Les Choeurs De L’Armée Rouge (around 3,100 sales / -24%).

Jake Bugg enters at number 11 with his eponymous debut album (4,474 sales).

The 2012 French Albums Chart

Like in the United States, Adele‘s “21” is for the second consecutive year the best-selling album in France with around 615,800 sales (thanks to RCGrayson from Charts In France for the estimated sales). “21” was at the top of the albums chart for seven weeks in 2012 from January to March. With only eight weeks on the chart in 2012, Céline Dion is not far behind at number two with “Sans Attendre” (568,609 sales) which ruled the chart for two weeks in November and December.

“L’Apogée” is the third best-seller for 2012 for Sexion D’Assaut with around 556,000 sales. The album was at the top for five weeks from March to June. “Génération Goldman” is at four with 486,738 sales even if it was only released in November. In 2011 “Dans L’Oeil Des Enfoirés” reached number three, Les Enfoirés are number five in 2012 with “Le Bal Des Enfoirés 2012” (around 390,000 sales).

“Jamais Seul” was number 14 in 2011 for Johnny Hallyday, he is number six in 2012 with “L’Attente” (387,049 sales), it was at the top in the week ending 18th November.

Week Ending 13th January 2013 / Albums Chart

Sigh. The SNEP doesn’t like me. At all. As I had decided to rely on the albums chart published by the SNEP, it has suddenly changed the methodology of it. This week its “official” albums chart is based on physical sales only, it doesn’t count download sales. So the reference for the article you are reading is the chart published by Charts In France which is the comprehensive albums chart. Sorry readers, but it’s very difficult to write articles on the albums chart when there is no reliable source.

For the third consecutive week, “NRJ Music Awards 2013” is the best-selling album in France (with around 25,800 sales). But there was a close battle for the top spot this week as Pascal Obispo gets the highest new entry at number two with his best-of album called “Millésimes” (around 24,800 sales). Pascal Obispo had three number one albums, with “Live 98” for one week in May 1998, “Studio Fan / Live Fan” for one week in March 2004, and “Les Fleurs Du Bien” for two weeks in May 2006.

In its eighth week in the top 10, “Génération Goldman” slips one place at three (17,376 sales / -29%). “Génération Goldman” has sold 528,665 copies so far. It’s also down one at number four for Céline Dion with “Sans Attendre” (13,929 sales / -32%), the album has sold 602,935 copies in its ten weeks in the top 10.

In its 103rd (!) week on the chart, Adele‘s “21” is back up 10 places at five with 8,532 sales (+31%). “O Filles De L’Eau” climbs five at number six for Nolwenn Leroy (7,092 sales / -6%), the album has sold 196,995 copies so far.

In her 43rd week on the chart, Tal falls one place at seven with “Le Droit De Rêver” (6,657 sales / -26%). “L’Apogée” is down three at number eight for Sexion D’Assaut in its 45th week in the top 200 (5,987 sales / -36%).

Bruno Mars is back in the top 10 as “Unorthodox Jukebox” climbs four places at nine in its fifth week on the chart (5,769 sales / -15%). Johnny Hallyday slips one at number ten with “L’Attente” (5,744 sales / -27%), the album has sold 400,297 copies in its nine weeks in the top 10.

After five weeks in the top 10, Mylène Farmer is down four at number 11 with “Monkey Me” (5,503 sales / -35%), it has sold 322,590 copies so far. Patrick Bruel slips two places at 12 with “Lequel De Nous” in his seventh week on the chart (around 5,500 sales). “Paris Sud Minute” falls 15 at number 19 for 1995 in its second week in the top 200 (around 3,800 sales).

Have a very nice week !

Week Ending 30th December 2012 / Albums Chart

As I always try to find a reliable source for the albums chart (and it’s not very easy), I have decided to use the one from the SNEP website as a reference for my articles, rather than the one from Charts In France. From one week to another, they can change the methodology for the latter, so I thought it was important for you readers to know that. On the SNEP website, compilations are excluded from the chart, but if they are big-sellers, you will always be informed in my articles.

Why is that precision important this week ? In fact, the best-selling album for the week ending 30th December is… a compilation. NRJ Music Awards 2013  is new at number one in the comprehensive albums chart with 84,530 sales. It’s not a big surprise as it’s always a big seller at this time of the year, NRJ Music Awards 2012  opened with 60,401 sales in January 2012.

“Génération Goldman” spends a third week at the top of the albums chart as it’s up one place in its sixth week in the top 10 (55,591 sales / -58%). The album has sold 486,738 copies so far. It’s down one at number two for Céline Dion with “Sans Attendre” (47,605 sales / -66%). In its eight weeks in the top 10, the album has sold 568,609 copies.

“Monkey Me” is back up one place at three for Mylène Farmer in its fourth week in the top 10 (23,169 sales / -68%). 308,630 copies of “Monkey Me” have been sold so far. Johnny Hallyday slips one at number four with “L’Attente” (22,841 sales / -70%), it has sold 386,633 copies in its seven weeks in the top 10.

There is no move at five for Patrick Bruel with “Lequel De Nous” (20,432 sales / -64%), 206,482 copies have been sold in its five weeks in the top 10. “O Filles De L’Eau” stays at number six for Nolwenn Leroy in its fifth week in the top 10 (17,054 sales / -66%), “O Filles De L’Eau” has sold 182,375 copies so far.

Rihanna is back up one place at seven with “Unapologetic” (16,019 sales / -56%), the album has sold 157,945 copies in its six weeks in the top 10. “Le Droit De Rêver” climbs one place at number eight for Tal in its 41st week on the chart (15,918 sales / -56%), it has sold around 216,300 copies.

In its 43rd week in the top 200, “L’Apogée” is back in the top 10 as it’s up three at number nine for Sexion D’Assaut (15,772 sales / -52%), “L’Apogée” has sold around 556,000 copies so far. Muse‘s “The 2nd Law” falls three at number ten in its 13th week on the chart (15,070 sales / -67%), around 313,900 copies of “The 2nd Law” have been sold.

One album drops out of the top 10 this week. “Opéra Rouge” is down two places at 12 for Vincent Niclo & Les Choeurs De L’Armée Rouge in its 15th week in the top 200 (14,345 sales / -59%).

Lana Del Rey is back up nine places at number 20 with “Born To Die” in her 48th week on the chart, the album was at the top for two weeks in February. “Futur” also climbs nine at number 27 for Booba in its fifth week in the top 200.

In its 70th week on the chart, “Nothing But The Beat” is up 18 places at 36 for David Guetta. “Mylo Xyloto” is up a massive 22 places at number 44 for Coldplay, the album was number one for one week in October 2011, moreover it’s down one at number 19 for their “Live 2012” in its sixth week on the chart.

Have a great week ! Happy New Year, everybody !!!
