Week Ending 8th December 2013 / Singles Chart

Since 1987, an annual Téléthon is held in France by the TV channel France 2 in December for the muscular dystrophy charity, and for the first time a song has been created for the occasion. Only released on Friday 6th, “Un Arc En Ciel” (sung by Patrick Bruel, Bénabar, Cali, and Marina Russo) enters at the top of the French singles chart with 6,660 sales.

After just one week at Number One, Pharrell Williams is down to two with “Happy” in his third week inside the top 10 (6,000 sales / +2%). Maître Gims gets his fourth top three hit this year, as “Zombie” is new at number three (5,500 sales). He got two Number Ones, with “J’Me Tire” (for four weeks in March and April), and “Game Over” (as a featured artist with Vitaa, for one week in November), “Bella” peaked at three in June.

In its fourth week in the top 10, “Tous Les Mêmes” slips one at number four for Stromae (4,700 sales / +4%). “Photomaton” is back up eleven places at five for Jabberwocky featuring Elodie Wildstars in its third week inside the ten best-sellers (4,400 sales).

It’s down one at number six for Avicii‘s “Hey Brother” in its fifth week inside the top 10 (4,200 sales / -2%). Miley Cyrus falls five places at seven with “Wrecking Ball” in her fifth week in the top 10 (4,000 sales / -13%).

“Do What U Want” equals its highest-charting position as it moves up 24 places at eight for Lady Gaga featuring R. Kelly in its seventh week on the chart. “The Monster” is down five at number nine for Eminem featuring Rihanna in its sixth week inside the ten best-sellers (3,900 sales / -13%). Stromae‘s “Formidable” slips four places at ten in its 21st week in the top 10.

Four songs drop out of the top 10 this week. Lorde moves down five at number twelve with “Royals” in her 13th week on the chart. In its 11th week inside the top 200, “Game Over” falls seven places at 15 for Vitaa featuring Maître Gims. After seven weeks inside the ten best-sellers, “Talk Dirty” is also down seven at number 16 for Jason Derülo featuring 2 Chainz. DVBBS & Borgeous fall seven places at 17 with “Tsunami” in their 11th week on the chart, the song reached number three in November.

As Nelson Mandela sadly passed away on 5th December, we can notice that “Mandela Day” enters at number eleven for Simple Minds (3,598 sales). The amazing thing is that it’s their highest-charting song, and only their second top 20 hit ! The EP “Ballad Of The Streets” (with “Mandela Day”) peaked at 20 in July 1989. A former number two (for seven consecutive weeks from May to July 1988), “Asimbonanga (Mandela)” re-enters at 13 for Johnny Clegg & Savuka (3,221 sales). U2‘s “Ordinary Love” debuts at number 42 with 1,685 sales.

In his ninth week on the chart, Maître Gims is up three places at 14 with “Changer”. “Timber” climbs 16 at number 20 for Pitbull featuring Ke$ha in its ninth week inside the top 200 (2,400 sales), the song is Pitbull‘s 11th top 20 hit, and Ke$ha‘s fourth.

“Warano-Style” is new at number 21 for Maître Gims (2,300 sales). In its 19th week inside the 200 best-sellers, “Sonnentanz” is up seven places at 22 for Klangkarussell featuring Will Heard. “Booyah” also climbs seven at number 26 for Showtek featuring We Are Loud ! & Sonny Wilson in its 15th week on the chart.

In its tenth week in the top 200, “D’Un Avé Maria” moves up 24 places at 33 for Pascal Obispo (1,800 sales), the song is his 22nd top 40 hit, and the first since 2009 when “Le Drapeau” reached number six in July. Lily Allen climbs 16 places at 36 with “Somewhere Only We Know” in her second week on the chart (1,800 sales), Keane‘s original version was not released physically in 2004, and peaked at 42 in May 2012 as a download. “Somewhere Only We Know” is Lily Allen‘s fifth top 40 hit, “Fuck You” was number 14 in August 2009.

Have a great seven days !
