Julien Doré moves up three places at 17 with Løve in his 40th week in the top 250. Eric Clapton & Friends enter at number 20 with The Breeze – An Appreciation Of JJ Cale (3,000 sales). We can notice that JJ Cale & Eric Clapton peaked at ten in November 2006 with The Road To Escondido. Clapton is his last top 10 LP, it reached number ten in October 2010.

In its 23rd week on the chart, Dans Ma Paranoïa climbs four places at 28 for Jul, it debuted and peaked at number seven in March.
