Week Ending 17th February 2013 / Albums Chart

“Black City Parade” enters at the top of the French albums chart for Indochine with 75,615 sales. It’s their fourth number one album in the 21st century, after “3.6.3” (for two weeks in January 2004), “Alice & June” (for two weeks in December 2005 and January 2006), and “Hanoi” (for one week in February 2007). Indochine‘s last studio album “La République Des Meteors” entered at two in March 2009 behind Les Enfoirés with bigger sales (82,529 physical copies sold), but opening with 75,615 sales is remarkable for the singer Nicola Sirkis who is the only remaining member of Indochine whose debut album “L’Aventurier” was released in… November 1982.

“Génération Goldman” stays at number two in its 13th week in the top 10 (17,735 sales / +0.2%). In his sixth week in the top 10, “Millésimes” is back up two places at three for Pascal Obispo (12,200 sales / -5%). There is no move at number four for the compilation “NRJ 200% Hits 2013” in its second week on the chart (10,700 sales / -22%). Another compilation, “NRJ Music Awards 2013” falls two at five in its eighth week inside the top 10.

“Places” is up one at number six for Lou Doillon in its ninth week in the top 10 (9,217 sales / +17%). Birdy spends a 14th week in the top 10 as her eponymous debut album is back up four places at seven (8,900 sales / +34%). In his third week in the top 10, Asaf Avidan is up one at number eight with “Different Pulses” (8,000 sales / +18%).

Last week’s number one, La Fouine falls eight places at nine with “Drôle De Parcours” in his second week on the chart (7,358 sales / -75%). Tal‘s “Le Droit De Rêver” is down four at number ten in its 11th week in the top 10 (7,200 sales / -17%).

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After 14 consecutive weeks inside the top 10, Céline Dion slips three places at 11 with “Sans Attendre” (7,200 sales / +2%). The compilation “Piou Piou Dance Party 2013” falls four at 14 in its second week on the chart.

“Holy Fire” is a new entry at number 22 for Foals with 4,674 sales, “Antidotes” was at 84 in March 2008, and “Total Life Forever” reached number 38 in May 2010. Thanks to TV exposure, The Lumineers are up a massive 144 places at number 37 with their eponymous album in their fourth week inside the top 200 (2,400 sales). It’s also a very good week for Serge Lama, his album “La Balade Du Poète” climbs 49 at number 38 in its 11th week on the chart, it reached number 32 in December.

“Temper Temper” is not (for the moment) a third top 50 album for Bullet For My Valentine as it’s new at 51, “Scream Aim Fire” was at number 38 in February 2008, and “Fever” reached number 25 in May 2010. The soundtrack from “Les Misérables” enters at a rather low number 81.

Have a great week !
