In its 53rd week on the chart, Night Visions gets its peak position as it moves up eleven places at 19 for Imagine Dragons (3,800 sales). The compilation FG DJ All Stars 2014 enters at number 23. Team BS‘ eponymous album is back up five places at 26 in its sixth week inside the 250 best-sellers.

Timber Timbre gets its first top 40 album in France, as Hot Dreams is new at 36. Timber Timbre reached number 69 in October 2010, and Creep On Creepin’ On peaked at 112 in April 2011. It’s another bad week for both George Michael and Kylie Minogue, in their third week on the chart his Symphonica falls 23 places at 71, and her Kiss Me Once is down 22 at number 75 (1,000 sales / -38%).
