Week Ending 17th March 2013 / Albums Chart

On Friday night, 12,723,000 people watched the annual concert of Les Enfoirés on TF1, so there is no surprise to find them at the top of the albums chart this week. In only two days (the album was released on Saturday), La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés has sold 131,638 CDs and 9,550 downloads for a total of 141,188 copies. It’s impressive but not surprising. In its first week, Le Village Des Enfoirés 2006 had sold 142,131 CDs in April 2006, La Caravane Des Enfoirés 145,313 in March 2007, Les Secrets Des Enfoirés 2008 129,299 in March 2008, Les Enfoirés Font Leur Cinéma 152,196 in March 2009, La Crise De Nerfs 143,011 in March 2010, Dans L’Oeil Des Enfoirés 135,159 copies (by January 2011, downloads were included in the albums chart) in March 2011, and Le Bal Des Enfoirés 2012 137,730 copies in March 2012. In total, La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés is their 14th number one album. Founded by the comedian Coluche in 1985, the Restos Du Coeur can distribute food packages and hot meals to the needy. If you buy one copy, 18 meals can be distributed.

The Next Day is new at number two for David Bowie (50,248 sales), it’s his third top 10 album in the 2000s, Heathen reached number three in June 2002, and Reality was at two in September 2003 behind IAM with Revoir Un Printemps. Last week’s number one, A La Poursuite Du Bonheur Tour – Live A Bercy is down to three for M. Pokora in its second week in the top 10 (7,767 sales / -67%). For the first time in its 17th week on the chart, Génération Goldman is out of the top three as it slips two places at number four (7,609 sales / -30%).

There is no move at five for Bruno Mars with Unorthodox Jukebox in his eighth week in the top 10. Rihanna stays at number six with Unapologetic in her ninth week inside the top 10 (6,167 sales / -13%). In her second week on the chart, Girl Who Got Away falls four places at seven for Dido.

Black City Parade is down four at number eight for Indochine in its fifth week in the top 10. There is no change at nine for Asaf Avidan with Different Pulses in his seventh week inside the top 10. It’s down two at number ten for the compilation NRJ Total Hits 2013 in its second week on the chart.

Two albums drop out of the top 10. After nine weeks in the ten best-sellers, Millésimes falls eight places at 15 for Pascal Obispo. Kavinsky is down seven at number 17 with Outrun in his third week in the top 250.

There are some interesting new entries outside the top ten. Youn Sun Nah gets her highest charting album with Lento which is new at 18. She was at number 38 in October 2010 with Same Girl. Sanseverino enters at 22 with Honky Tonk, he reached number five with two albums, Les Sénégalaises in February 2004, and Exactement in November 2006. The rapper Sadek is new at 29 with Les Frontières Du Réel, La Légende De Johnny Niuuum‘s peak position was number 70 in March 2012. What About Now enters at 46 for Bon Jovi, their last two albums (not counting the Greatest Hits) reached number 39, Lost Highway in June 2007, and The Circle in November 2009. Bon Jovi‘s last top ten album is Bounce which was at number eight in September 2002.

Have a great week !
