Week Ending 24th November 2013 / Singles Chart

After “Papaoutai” (for four weeks in July and August) and “Formidable” (for six weeks in September and October), Stromae gets his third Number One hit in 2013 as “Tous Les Mêmes” climbs four places to reach the top spot in its second week inside the top 10. When was the last time an artist got three chart-toppers in the same year ? Mylène Farmer achieved that feat in 2009 with the one-week reign of “Si J’Avais Au Moins…” (in February), “C’Est Dans L’Air” (in May), and “Sextonik” (in September). Very bad news : “Tous Les Mêmes” only sold 5,200 downloads last week (+8%), that’s the worst total sales figures for a Number One song since the downloads were added to the French singles chart in January 2011.

After three consecutive weeks at the top, “The Monster” is down to number two for Eminem featuring Rihanna in its fourth week inside the ten best-sellers (4,700 sales / -30%). There is no change at three for Vitaa featuring Maître Gims with “Game Over” which spends its eighth week in the top 10 (4,200 sales / -24%).

Avicii‘s “Hey Brother” moves up four places at four in its third week inside the top 10 (4,100 sales / -5%), the song is his second top five hit, “Wake Me Up !” was at the top of the singles chart for two weeks in August and September. In its second week inside the ten best-sellers, “Photomaton” falls three at number five for Jabberwocky featuring Elodie Wildstars (3,800 sales / -38%).

Stromae moves back up one place at six with “Formidable” in his 19th week in the top 10. It’s down three at number seven for DVBBS & Borgeous with “Tsunami” in their sixth week inside the ten best-sellers. Lorde‘s “Royals” is back up two places at eight in its third week inside the top 10. In its sixth week inside the top 10, “Talk Dirty” slips three at number nine for Jason Derülo featuring 2 Chainz (3,500 sales / -26%).

Pharrell Williams“Happy” is this week’s highest new entry at number ten. The song is his third top 10 hit this year, after “Get Lucky” (as a featured artist with Daft Punk, Number One for eight weeks from April to July), and “Blurred Lines” (as a featured artist with Robin Thicke and T.I., Number One for six weeks in June and July). Will he also get a third chart-topper in 2013 ? Place your bets.

One song drops out of the top 10 this week. After just one week inside the ten best-sellers (so far), Ellie Goulding moves down four places at 13 with “Burn”.

This week One Direction get their fourth, fifth and sixth top 20 hits, as “Diana” (2,900 sales), “Midnight Memories” (2,700 sales), and “Strong” (2,700 sales) debut at 12, 14, and 15. But they are still waiting for their first top 10 song as “Diana” equalled “Best Song Ever” which also reached number twelve in August.

In its third week on the chart, “Berlin” climbs four places at 23 for RY X (2,000 sales). As the song is used in a TV advert, Junior Senior‘s “Move Your Feet” gets its highest ranking, it re-enters at number 27 (1,700 sales). “Move Your Feet” peaked at 29 in May 2003.

“23” moves up a massive 30 places at 31 for Mike Will Made-It featuring Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa & Juicy J in its ninth week inside the top 200. In its third week on the chart, the new version of “Turn Me On (Tropical Family)” by Kevin Lyttle & Matt Houston climbs 15 places at 34. The original version sung by Kevin Lyttle reached number ten in March 2004. Selena Gomez is up eleven at number 35 with “Slow Down” in her 20th week inside the 200 best-sellers.

Have a great week ! Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers !
