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 !
