Week Ending 20th July 2014 / Albums Chart

As it’s usually the case during the summer, a compilation reigns in the French albums chart, indeed NRJ Party Hits 2014 debuts straight to the top (13,600 sales). NRJ Party Hits 2013 was Number One during the week ending 28th July 2013.

Stromae‘s Racine Carrée slips one place at two in its 46th week inside the top 10 (11,800 sales / -27%). It’s also down one at number three for La Bande A Renaud in its sixth week inside the ten best-sellers (10,300 sales / -35%). In her 21st week in the top 10, Indila moves down one place at four with Mini World (9,200 sales / -31%).

After a 24-week absence, Florent Pagny‘s Vieillir Avec Toi is back inside the top five as it climbs one place at five in its 28th week in the top 10 (6,800 sales / -25%). Ghost Stories moves down one at number six for Coldplay in its ninth week inside the ten best-sellers. The compilation NRJ Summer Hits Only 2014 falls three places at seven in its fourth week inside the top 10.

In his ninth week in the top 10, Black M is back up two at number eight with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (4,200 sales / -33%). Isabelle Boulay is a non-mover at nine with Merci Serge Reggiani which spends its sixth week inside the ten best-selling LPs. Another compilation gets the second highest new entry of the week, M6 Hits Eté 2014 is new at number ten (3,800 sales).

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four weeks inside the top 10, Collectif Métissé‘s Destination Fiesta falls four places at eleven. Last week’s new entry at eight, Sia is down to number 15 with 1000 Forms Of Fear (2,900 sales / -60%).

In its seventh week on the chart, Chaleur Humaine jumps from 19 to number twelve for Christine And The Queens. The album debuted and peaked at six. Latin Lovers are back up three places at 13 in their fourth week inside the top 250. London Grammar‘s If You Wait climbs six at number 19 in its 45th week on the chart.

Judas Priest‘s Redeemer Of Souls debuts at 22, their Nostradamus peaked at number 38 in June 2008. Les Prêtres move back up nine places at 27 with Amen in their 15th week inside the 250 best-sellers. It’s a good week for Julien Doré, his Løve jumps from 38 to number 30 in its 38th week on the chart. In their third week in the top 250, Les Graffiti’s are up five places at 35 with Les Jours Heureux.

Yes! enters at number 36 for Jason Mraz (1,500 sales). This new entry is rather disappointing as his last two LPs reached the top 20, We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. was number six in April 2009, and Love Is A Four Letter Word peaked at 15 in April 2012. Jungle‘s eponymous debut album opens at number 42. World Peace Is None Of Your Business is new at 53 for Morrissey (1,100 sales). His highest-charting LP remains You Are The Quarry which reached number 21 in May 2004.

Have a very good week !
