Week Ending 26th May 2013 / Albums Chart

Incredible first week on the albums chart for Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories, the album debuts at the top with 195,013 copies sold ! No album has sold that many since the week ending 12th November 2005 when Johnny Hallyday sold 208,771 CDs of Ma Vérité. We can also notice that the late Grégory Lemarchal had opened with 193,960 CDs sold of his album La Voix D’Un Ange in June 2007 just two months after his death. Random Access Memories sets a new record as it was downloaded 67,535 (!) times, the holder of that record was Booba with Futur in December 2012 with “only” 15,504 downloads. With the new album, Daft Punk get a first chart-topper and a fifth top three album, Discovery (in March 2001) and Alive 2007 (in November 2007) both reached number two, and Homework (in January 1997) and Human After All (in March 2005) peaked at three.

Subliminal is new at number two for Maître Gims with 66,430 sales. As a member of Sexion D’Assaut, he reached the top of the albums chart with L’Apogée which opened with 65,949 copies sold in March 2012, the album stayed in the top 10 for 36 weeks. On Subliminal, you can find the hits “J’Me Tire” (number one on the singles chart for four weeks in March and April) and “Bella” which was at four last week.

It’s a rather good second week in the top 10 for Zaz as her album Recto Verso only slips one place at three (37,779 sales / -15%), it has sold around 84,500 copies so far. Last week’s number one, Vanessa Paradis is down to four with Love Songs (27,927 sales / -43%), the album has sold 76,780 copies in two weeks.

Une Histoire De France debuts at five for Les Stentors with 26,539 sales. They took advantage of the fact it was Mothers Day in France on 26th May. Their Voyage En France spent three weeks at number one in May and June 2012, the album had opened with 31,773 copies sold.

In its fifth week in the top 10, the album Thérèse / Vivre D’Amour slips two places at six (10,400 sales / +38%). With Mothers Day, Frank Michael is back up three at number seven with Quelques Mots D’Amour in his fifth week inside the ten best-sellers (9,600 sales). It’s down three places at eight for Emmanuel Moire‘s Le Chemin in its fourth week in the top 10 (9,200 sales / +28%).

The Conversation is new at nine for Texas (8,944 sales), their last album Red Book also opened (and peaked) at number nine in November 2005. In his 17th week in the top 10, Bruno Mars falls four places at ten with Unorthodox Jukebox (8,692 sales / +30%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four weeks inside the top 10, Maxime Le Forestier slips two at number eleven with Le Cadeau. Arts Martiens moves down five places at 12 for IAM, the album was at the top of the albums chart four weeks ago. It’s down eleven at number 19 for Hugh Laurie with Didn’t It Rain, the album has only spent three weeks in the top 10 so far, his Let Them Talk was in the ten best-sellers for eight weeks from April to June 2011. In his second week on the chart, Kery James is down a massive 20 places at number 23 with Dernier MC (4,300 sales / -67%).

As the album was only available digitally, it’s a very good week for Fauve, their Blizzard debuts at number 13 with 6,200 sales. Now that you can find a DVD of her concert at Paris-Bercy in a new version of her album Caméléon, Shy’m is back up 87 places at number 14 in her 48th week on the chart (5,664 sales).

Love Lust Faith + Dreams opens at number 16 for Thirty Seconds To Mars (5,600 sales), their last album This Is War only peaked at 96 in December 2009, and A Beautiful Lie reached number 87 in February 2007. The compilation NRJ By Cauet debuts at number 17.

Have a very nice week !

  1. congrats to Daft Punk they pretty much went double platinum in one week in France Platinum in Australia Gold in the UK US and New Zealand almost 800,000 between those 5 countries alone

  2. Quanto Sans Attendre vendeu semana passada na França, ele está no #24 nas vendas físicas!!!

  3. Quanto D’eux vendeu semana passada e na semana retrasada na frança?

    Semana retrasada estava no #34 e semana passada no #26.

  4. E os DVDS Celine Dion – Live In Las Vegas – A New Day… está no #2, e semana passada estava no #5, quais foram as vendas em cada semana?

  5. I have no news for the DVD and “D’Eux”, but I know that “Sans Attendre” sold 3,790 copies (3,703 CDs + 87 downloads) last week.

  6. Poor Shy’m, I guess her re-release is considered a flop… Then again, this is the third time the album is being re-released and the concert video at Bercy has been playing on NRJ/NRJ Hits… Oh well… Next album 🙂
