Week Ending 2nd March 2014 / Albums Chart

Was last week the last time we had Stromae‘s Racine Carrée at the top of the French albums chart ? Les Enfoirés will release their yearly live LP on 15th March, and this week we have a new entry at Number One ! And the winner is… Indila with her debut album Mini World with impressive sales figures (40,368 sales). Her “Dernière Danse” is for the seventh non-consecutive week at two on the singles chart.

After 25 non-consecutive weeks at the top, Stromae‘s Racine Carrée is down to number two (25,067 sales / -17%). Mini World is only the fifth album to have beaten Racine Carrée during a week, it was at two behind Génération Goldman Vol. 2 in the week ending 1st September, and number four behind three new entries (Florent Pagny‘s Vieillir Avec Toi, Eminem‘s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, and Céline Dion‘s Loved Me Back To Life) in the week ending 10th November. Racine Carrée has sold 1,466,369 copies in its 28 weeks on the chart.

As you can still find the LP at €9.99, Random Access Memories slips one place at three for Daft Punk in its 19th week inside the ten best-sellers (17,955 sales / +6%). It’s also down one at number four for Maître Gims with Subliminal in his 30th week in the top 10 (16,276 sales / +4%).

Team BS‘ eponymous debut album is new at five (13,100 sales), it is composed of La Fouine, Sultan, Fababy and Sindy. La Fouine got two Number One albums, with La Fouine vs Laouni (for one week in February 2011), and Drôle De Parcours (for one week in February 2013). In its 25th week on the chart, London Grammar‘s If You Wait reaches the top 10 as it jumps from twelve to number six (9,700 sales / +116%).

French rapper Jul debuts at number seven with Dans Ma Paranoïa (8,500 sales). Skip The Use get their first top 10 LP as Little Armageddon is new at eight (8,400 sales). Their Can Be Late reached number 35 in February 2013. The compilation NRJ Snow Hits 2014 enters at number nine (8,400 sales). Florent Pagny is a non-mover at ten with Vieillir Avec Toi in his 17th week in the top 10 (8,390 sales).

Six albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Nos Fiançailles, France / Portugal moves down eight places at twelve for Tony Carreira in its third week on the chart (7,600 sales / -16%). The compilation NRJ 200% Hits 2014 also falls eight at number 13 in its fourth week inside the top 250. After just one week inside the ten best-sellers, Cats On Trees‘ self-titled album is down five places at 14. Recto Verso falls eight at number 15 for Zaz in its 43rd week on the chart. After three weeks in the top 10, Vieux Frères – Partie 1 moves down ten places at 16 for FAUVE. Last week’s at number eight, Julien Doré‘s Løve is down to 18 in its 18th week inside the top 250.

Amel Bent enters at number eleven with Instinct (8,020 sales). She had three top 10 albums, with Un Jour D’Eté (number three in March 2006), A 20 Ans (number four in June 2007), and Où Je Vais (number nine in January 2010). Her last album Délit Mineur only debuted and peaked at 24 in December 2011 with 6,006 copies sold. Lindsey Stirling‘s eponymous LP is new at number 17 (4,900 sales).

Entre Les Lignes debuts at 27 and gives Danakil their first top 30 album, Echos Du Temps reached number 50 in February 2011. In their 41st week on the chart, Les Stentors climb seven places at 34 with Une Histoire De France. Beck‘s Morning Phase enters at number 36. Beck had two top 20 LPs, with Midnite Vultures (number 19 in November 1999), and Sea Change (number 13 in September 2002).

Have a very good week !
