Week Ending 2nd November 2014 / Albums Chart

As you probably know now, the French singles chart (“Top 50”) celebrates its 30th birthday on 4th November, and the compilation Top 50 – 30 Ans (100 Tubes) debuts straight to the top of the albums chart with 20,515 sales. To be honest, the LP is totally focused on the nine years (1984-1993) the Top 50 was broadcasted on the TV channel Canal +.

It’s quite surprising to see the second volume of La Bande A Renaud entering at number two with only 17,190 sales when you consider that the first volume debuted with 54,030 copies sold in June and spent four consecutive weeks at the top. La Bande A Renaud has sold 225,100 copies so far and is back up eleven places at 26 in its 21st week on the chart.

Last week’s Number One, Kendji Girac is down to three with his eponymous LP (16,288 sales / +12%). The album has sold 201,441 copies in its eight weeks inside the top 10. Calogero‘s Les Feux D’Artifice climbs three places at four in its 11th week inside the ten best-sellers (10,300 sales / +66%).

In its fourth week in the top 10, Songs Of Innocence moves down three at number five for U2 (8,600 sales / -37%). Forever Gentlemen Vol. 2 also falls three places at six in its second week on the chart (8,500 sales / -31%). Soprano slips two at number seven with Cosmopolitanie in his third week inside the top 10 (7,400 sales / -20%).

Amaury Vassili debuts at eight with Amaury Vassili Chante Mike Brant (6,631 sales). It’s his third top 10 album, after Vincerò (number nine in April 2009) and Canterò (number eight in April and May 2011). His last LP Una Parte Di Me peaked at 15 in November 2012.

Taylor Swift‘s 1989 is new at number nine with 5,980 copies sold (1989 is Number One on the download chart with 2,331 sales). It’s a lot better than her last LP Red which debuted and peaked at 30 in November 2012 with 2,940 sales. 1989 is her first top 10 album (and even top 20) in France, Fearless reached number 26 in July 2009. In its third week inside top 10, Les Enfants Du Top 50 is down six places at ten (5,700 sales / -44%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four consecutive weeks inside the ten best-sellers, Les Stentors fall six at number 15 with Rendez-Vous Au Cinéma. Mireille Mathieu moves down seven places at 17 with Une Vie D’Amour in her fifth week on the chart. Dany Brillant‘s Le Dernier Romantique goes from six to number 19 in its third week in the top 250 (3,600 sales / -46%). Last week’s new entry at eight, .5: The Gray Chapter is down to number 43 for Slipknot (1,800 sales / -69%).

Two compilations debut inside the top 20, NRJ Total Hits 2014 at eleven (5,300 sales), and W9 Hits 2015 at number 18. Led Zeppelin re-enter at 14 with Led Zeppelin IV, and are new at number 29 with Houses Of The Holy. Charles Pasi gets his first top 30 LP with Sometimes Awake which is a new entry at 22. His last album Uncaged reached number 129 in April 2011.

Pietà/Stabat Mater (Ltd) is new at 28 for Philippe Jaroussky. As Lady Gaga appeared on French TV show “C’Est A Vous” last Friday, Cheek To Cheek moves back up 16 places at 42 for Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga in its sixth week on the chart. The LP debuted and peaked at number nine.

Have a very good week !

  1. Hi Alex ! I will probably get this info on Friday (as I usually do for the Top 10). Before this week’s chart, Songs Of Innocence had sold around 64;600 copies.
