So it’s a great achievement for Stromae, but it was not that easy as Midnight Memories debuts at two for One Direction with 42,833 sales. Their last LP Take Me Home had opened and peaked at number three in November 2012 with 43,134 copies sold. Up All Night reached number 15 in February 2012.

Booba‘s new edition of his album Futur (now Futur 2.0) climbs 87 places at number six (17,700 sales), the original one debuted and peaked at four in December 2012. It’s down one at number seven for Céline Dion‘s Loved Me Back To Life (16,809 sales / -12%), the album has sold 83,654 copies in its four weeks in the top 10.

The album Forever Gentlemen also slips one place at eight in its sixth week inside the top 10 (15,186 sales / +3%). In its second week on the chart, Détroit‘s Horizons falls seven at number nine (14,981 sales / -52%), the LP has sold 46,507 copies so far. Au Milieu De Ma Vie moves down five places at ten for Garou in its second week in the top 10 (13,600 sales / -31%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After just one week inside the ten best-sellers, Etienne Daho falls eight at number eleven with Les Chansons De L’Innocence Retrouvée (12,339 sales / -52%). In its fourth week on the chart, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is also down eight places at 17 for Eminem. IAM‘s eponymous album falls 33 at number 43 in its second week inside the top 250 (3,900 sales / -60%). Last week’s new entry at eight, Casseurs FlowtersOrelsan & Gringe Sont Les Casseurs Flowters moves down to number 47 !

In its 36th week on the chart, the musical Robin Des Bois is back up 13 places at 13. Laurent Voulzy‘s new live album Lys & Love Live enters at number 18 (10,000 sales), Lys & Love peaked at two in December 2011. Maître Gims climbs ten places at 20 with Subliminal in his 28th week inside the 250 best-sellers.

Le Chemin moves up 18 at number 22 for Emmanuel Moire in its 31st week on the chart (7,800 sales), the album spent one week at the top in May. Les Grands Moments Live is new at 23 for Michel Sardou (6,900 sales). In his second week in the top 250, Vincent Delerm climbs a massive 147 places at 24 with Les Amants Parallèles, he was Number One with Kensington Square (for one week in April 2004), and Les Piqûres D’Araignée (for one week in September 2006).

Yves Jamait gets a second top 40 LP as Amor Fati debuts at number 36, his Saison 4 peaked at eleven in October 2011. It’s not a good week for Lady Gaga, her ARTPOP falls 14 places at 42 in its third week on the chart (3,900 sales / -23%), her last album Born This Way was 1-1-3 after three weeks in June 2011…

Dido‘s Greatest Hits is new at number… 170 with only 475 copies sold. We have to remember that she had two Number One albums, with No Angel (for four weeks in April and May 2001), and Life For Rent (for two weeks in September and October 2003).

Have a great week !
