Week Ending 3rd March 2013 / Albums Chart

In its 15th week inside the top three, Génération Goldman is back up one place to spend a fourth week at the top of the French albums chart (12,495 sales), but the big story is the new entry at number two of Kavinsky‘s debut album Outrun (12,041 sales). Kavinsky (his real name : Vincent Belorgey) has already had a top 10 hit single with “Nightcall” which reached number ten on two occasions, in February 2012 and 2013. “Nightcall” is taken from the soundtrack of the movie “Drive”.

After two consecutive weeks at number one, Black City Parade is down to three for Indochine with 11,456 sales, so you can notice it has been a very close battle for the top spot in this week’s albums chart. It’s down one at number four for Pascal Obispo with Millésimes in his eighth week in the top 10 (9,400 sales).

In his 12th week on the chart (and the sixth inside the top 10), Bruno Mars gets his highest position this week as Unorthodox Jukebox climbs five places at number five (7,493 sales / +34%), his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans reached number 13 in July 2011. There is no change at six for Asaf Avidan with Different Pulses in his fifth week in the top 10 (7,400 sales).

The compilation NRJ 200% Hits 2013 falls three places at seven in its fourth week in the top 10. It’s also down three at number eight for another compilation, NRJ Music Awards 2013 in its tenth week inside the top 10.

Roch Voisine‘s duets album Duophonique is up a massive 162 places at number nine in its second week in the top 250 (6,700 sales), it’s his first top 10 album since August 2009 when AmerIIcana was also number nine. Roch Voisine reached number 18 in June and July 2010 with California – Americana III, and number 30 in December 2010 with Confidences. The compilation Piou Piou Dance Party is back in the top 10 as it’s up two places at ten in its fourth week on the chart (6,700 sales).

In its 110th week on the chart, Adele‘s 21 climbs three at number 14 (4,900 sales). Last week’s highest new entry, Push The Sky Away is down 23 places at 30 for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (3,000 sales / -53%).

Thom Yorke’s new project Atoms For Peace is new at number 15 with Amok (4,700 sales). Nu Là-Bas is not the fourth top 20 album in a row for Tété as it enters at number 24 (3,300 sales). Tété reached number 16 in October 2003 with A La Faveur De L’Automne, Le Sacre Des Lemmings Et Autres Contes De La Lisière was at five in October 2006, and Le Premier Clair De L’Aube‘s peak position was number 11 in February 2010. Josh Groban is new at 42 with All That Echoes (2,000 sales) which is his sixth top 50 album, Awake reached number five in January 2007.

Have a great seven days !
