Week Ending 25th August 2013 / Albums Chart

It was predictable that Stromae‘s new album Racine Carrée would debut at the top of the albums chart, but we can also notice that its sales figures are amazing : 55,597 CDs and 25,285 downloads for a total of 80,882 copies sold. His debut LP, Cheese spent two weeks in the top 10 at number eight in June and July 2010, and this week it climbs 13 places at twelve in its 77th week on the chart (4,602 sales / +142%).

In his third week in the top 10, Luc Arbogast slips one place at two with Odysseus (17,124 sales / -5%). The compilation NRJ Extravadance 2013 stays at number three in its third week inside the ten best-sellers (11,229 sales / -17%).

Another compilation, NRJ Party Hits 2013 is down two places at four in its fifth week in the top 10 (11,106 sales / -24%). Ange Ou Démon spends a fourth week inside the top 10 as it slips one at number five for Keen’V (9,266 sales / -4%). Maître Gims also moves down one place at six with Subliminal in his 14th week in the top 10 (7,580 sales / -0.3%).

In his 29th week inside the ten best-sellers, Bruno Mars is down one at number seven with Unorthodox Jukebox (6,601 sales / -6%). The collective Tropical Family moves up one place at eight in its seventh week in the top 10 (6,404 sales / -3%).

Random Access Memories falls two at number nine for Daft Punk in its 14th inside the top 10 (6,329 sales / -8%), the album was at the top of the French albums chart for three consecutive weeks in June. Another former Number One (for three weeks in June and July), Christophe Maé is a non-mover with Je Veux Du Bonheur in his 11th week inside the ten best-sellers (5,830 sales / +2%).

One album drops out of the top 10 this week. In its second week on the chart, the compilation Skyrock 2013, Vol. 2 falls five places at 13.

Emmanuel Moire is back up seven at number eleven with Le Chemin in his 17th week in the top 250 (5,025 sales), the album spent one week at the top in May. In their 14th week on the chart, Les Stentors also climb seven places at 16 with Une Histoire De France.

Les Soul Men moves up five at number 24 for Vigon Bamy Jay in its 22nd week inside the top 250. P!nk‘s The Truth About Love climbs six places at 25 in its 49th week on the chart.

As you can find the album at €9.99, Patrick Bruel is up a massive 32 places at 26 with Lequel De Nous in his 39th week inside the 250 best-sellers (1,827 sales), the album was Number One for one week in December 2012. For the same reason, Céline Dion moves back up 39 places at number 38 with Sans Attendre in her 42nd week on the chart (1,463 sales).

In its 12th week in the top 250, Ma Déclaration climbs 13 at number 28 for Jenifer, the LP entered and peaked at two in June. Genération Goldman is up eight places at 29 in its 40th week on the chart. Will Génération Goldman 2 debut at the top next week ? Place your bets.

It’s a good week for the musical Robin Des Bois, the album moves up 13 at number 30 in its 22nd week inside the top 250. In her 11th week on the chart, Joyce Jonathan climbs seven places at 33 with Caractère.

John Mayer is new at number 66 with Paradise Valley (970 sales), so his highest charting album is still Born And Raised which peaked at 56 in May 2012. Where You Stand debuts at number 104 for Travis. They got two top 20 albums, The Invisible Band reached number 13 in September 2001, and 12 Memories peaked at 19 in October 2003.

Have a great week !

  1. Erm…it means increasing y?And the sales data?And y the album is at the price of 9.99 ? And the original selling price of Sans attendre in france is? sorry for tuhese questions because i really wonder to know them 🙂

  2. Wow… a lot of questions ! 😉 The anti-piracy policy may be a cause of the increasing sales. It’s still very difficult to have the sales figures for albums and songs out of the top 10. After a while, you can find some albums at €9.99 in France, that’s normal. I don’t know the original selling price of “Sans Attendre” but I guess it was around €15-17. Thanks for your questions, Eric ! 🙂
