Week Ending 24th February 2013 / Albums Chart

Black City Parade spends a second consecutive week at the top spot for Indochine, it’s their first album to be number one for more than one week since Alice & June (for two weeks in December 2005 and January 2006). We have a very static top five this week as Génération Goldman stays at two in its 14th week in the top 10. There is no move at three for Pascal Obispo‘s Millésimes in its seventh week in the top 10.

This week’s best-selling compilation is NRJ 200% Hits 2013 which doesn’t move at number four in its third week inside the top 10. There is no change at five for a former number one, NRJ Music Awards 2013 in its ninth week in the top 10.

Asaf Avidan is up two places at six with Different Pulses, the album entered the chart at number five three weeks ago (6,744 sales / -16%). Push The Sky Away is the highest new entry of the week at seven for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, it’s their first top 10 album in France (6,423 sales), they reached number 17 in April 2001 with No More Shall We Part.

Lou Doillon slips two at eight with Places in her 10th week in the top 10. In its 12th week inside the top 10, Le Droit De Rêver is back up one place at nine for Tal. Unorthodox Jukebox spends a fifth week in the top 10 as it climbs five at number ten for Bruno Mars (5,607 sales).

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Birdy‘s eponymous debut album falls four places at 11 (5,569 sales / -37%), it spent 14 weeks in the top 10 and reached number five in June 2012. La Fouine is down four at 13 with Drôle De Parcours which entered at number one two weeks ago.

Et Puis Juin is not the third top 10 album for Rose as it enters at number 14, Rose reached number five in August 2007, and Les Souvenirs Sous Ma Frange was at seven in October 2009. Axelle Red is new at number 22 with Rouge Ardent, it’s a little better than her last album Un Coeur Comme Le Mien which reached number 23 in April 2011. Axelle Red was at the top of the French albums chart for one week in March 1999 with Toujours Moi.

Live At The Royal Albert Hall is new at 33 for Emeli Sandé (2,256 sales), she’s also down six at number 25 with Our Version Of Events in her 50th week in the top 200 (3,319 sales), the album reached number nine three weeks ago. In its sixth week on the chart, The Heist gets its peak position as it’s up a massive 57 places at number 45 for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Have a great week !
