Week Ending 5th October 2014 / Albums Chart

There is no change at the top of the French albums chart where Kendji Girac spends a fourth consecutive week with his eponymous LP. The album has sold over 20,000 copies in each of its four weeks on the chart (68,166-25,585-21,588-20,811) for a total of 136,150. What was the last LP to do so ? Unsurprisingly it was Les Enfoirés with Bon Anniversaire Les Enfoirés in March and April this year (103,008-98,728-38,892-21,081).

Rendez-Vous Au Cinéma gives Les Stentors their third top three album as it debuts at number two (10,300 sales). Voyage En France spent three weeks at the top in May and June 2012, and Une Histoire De France peaked at three in June 2013. In its second week on the chart, Leonard Cohen‘s Popular Problems slips one place at three (9,000 sales / -48%). The album has sold 26,200 copies so far. Calogero is a non-mover at number four with Les Feux D’Artifice (8,300 sales / -16%), the LP has sold 149,400 copies in its seven weeks inside the top 10. Lenny Kravitz moves down two places at five with Strut in his second week inside the ten best-sellers (7,100 sales / -47%).

Art Official Age is new at number six for Prince (6,600 sales). His last top 10 LP was in 2006 when 3121 reached number eight in March. With 3rdEyeGirl, he also enters at 13 with Plectrumelectrum (3,900 sales). The Dø gets its second top 10 album with Shake Shook Shaken which debuts at number seven (6,000 sales). A Mouthful was Number One during the week ending 19th January 2008 with 10,044 CDs sold. The band’s last LP Both Ways Open Jaws peaked at 14 in March 2011.

In her 32nd week in the top 10, Indila is down one place at eight with Mini World (5,900 sales / -8%). The album has sold 419,100 copies so far. Black M climbs one at number nine with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 13th week inside the top 10 (5,700 sales / +16%). The compilation NRJ 200% Hits 2014 Vol. 2 slips two places at ten in its second week on the chart.

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Last week’s new entry at nine, This Is All Yours is down to number 14 for Alt-J (3,800 sales / -60%). In his fourth week inside the top 250, George Ezra falls 19 places at 25 with Wanted On Voyage. Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga move down 20 at number 29 with Cheek To Cheek (2,600 sales / -55%), the LP has sold 8,400 copies in its two weeks on the chart.

In her 18th week inside the 250 best-sellers, Chaleur Humaine jumps from 22 to number eleven for Christine And The Queens (4,636 sales). The album entered and peaked at six in June. Marianne Faithfull gets her first top 20 LP in France as Give My Love To London is a new entry at number 16 (3,532 sales). We have to remember that the first French albums chart was only published in January 1985.

After an eight-week absence, Sia‘s 1000 Forms Of Fear is back inside the top 20 as it climbs ten at number 18 in its 13th week on the chart. Karismatik is a disappointing new entry at 31 for Kenza Farah (2,300 sales). She reached the top 10 with Authentik (number five in June 2007) and Avec Le Coeur (number seven in November 2008). Her last LP 4 Love peaked at 13 in September 2012.

R-Kive enters at number 39 for Genesis (1,900 sales). Paul Personne‘s Puzzle 14 is new at 44. His last top 50 album was in 2007 when Amicalement Blues (with Thiéfaine) was number 19 in November. Yelle gets her highest-charting LP with Complètement Fou which debuts at 52 (1,422 sales). Pop-Up reached number 61 in September 2007.

Have a great week !
