2014 – The First Six Months / Singles Chart

As he spent 18 weeks at Number One during the first six months of 2014, it’s not surprising at all to see Pharrell Williams at the top with “Happy” (296,700 sales). Indila‘s “Dernière Danse” is at number two (128,200 sales), the song was never a chart-topper because of “Happy”, but was at two for nine non-consecutive weeks !

That song finally ended the 22-week reign of Pharrell Williams : “Stolen Dance” by Milky Chance is at three with 94,400 sales. Maître Gims was very successful in 2013, and the start of 2014 was not bad for him, as “Zombie” is at number four (79,600 sales).

London Grammar‘s “Wasting My Young Years” was not a big hit until a contender of the TV show “The Voice” sang it, and then it jumped from 83 to number two in February ! The song sold 77,000 copies and is at five. Daft Punk own two songs inside the top 20, at six you can find “Instant Crush” (featuring Julian Casablancas, 71,300 sales), and “Get Lucky” at number 16 (featuring Pharrell Williams, 51,700 sales).

“Rather Be” spent eight weeks inside the top 10 and two of them at number two, the song is at seven for Clean Bandit featuring Jess Glynne (70,100 sales). Cris Cab‘s “Liar Liar” is at number eight with 65,300 sales.

“Black Pearl (He’s A Pirate)” reached number three in April and May, and is at nine for the first six months of 2014 for Rebel featuring Sidney Housen. OneRepublic‘s “Counting Stars” only spent four weeks inside the ten best-sellers and peaked at number seven in February, but was a regular seller week after week, that’s why you can find it at ten with 60,300 sales.

Klingande‘s “Jubel” is at eleven (58,900 sales), “Sirens Call” by Cats On Trees is at number twelve with 58,000 sales. Mr. Probz was in the top 10 for ten weeks with “Waves”, and is at 13 for the first six months of 2014 with 56,200 sales.

The Flume Remix used in the Lacoste advert was loved by 53,000 people as “You & Me” is at number 14 for Disclosure featuring Eliza Doolittle. It was the first hit in France for both acts. Stromae is obviously inside the top 20, this time with “Tous Les Mêmes” at 15 (52,100 sales).

“Changes” is at number 17 for FAUL & Wad Ad vs. Pnau (51,400 sales). The song peaked at nine in March and April. Katy Perry owns one song inside the 20 best-sellers, her “Dark Horse” (featuring Juicy J) is at 18 with 50,800 sales.
