Week Ending 7th December 2014 / Singles Chart

For once I won’t start with this week’s chart-topper, but with the number 58 song. And that song is flopping. Hard. It’s the French version of Band Aid 30 titled “Noël Est Là” which enters at 58 with only 786 downloads sold last week (it was released on Monday 1st). I can’t say I’m totally surprised by the flop of the song as I think it lacks of so many things : good voices, star quality, and the guys who are on that song look really bored. I know, it’s for a serious cause but guys, try to have fun when you are doing the stuff ! It’s like there is no heart. I really hope the song will sell a lot more in the future though (I’m not fully convinced it will, but who knows ?). You can watch the video below, so you can judge by yourself.

The song lacks the spirit of Chanteurs Sans Frontières with “Ethiopie” (Number One for eight consecutive weeks from May to July 1985).

“Dangerous” spends a fifth non-consecutive week at the top of the French singles chart for David Guetta featuring Sam Martin in its ninth week inside the top 10 (7,000 sales / -20%). It could be the song’s last week at Number One as “Uptown Funk” climbs one place at two for Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars in its second week inside the ten best-sellers (5,900 sales / +40%). It’s amazing to know that “Uptown Funk” is now Bruno Mars‘ highest-charting song in France, “Locked Out Of Heaven” peaked at three in February 2013.

This year’s Telethon official song, “Petit Garçon” moves up a massive 121 places at three for Garou & Ryan in its fourth week on the chart (5,378 sales). Last year “Un Arc En Ciel” reached the top spot in December for Bénabar, Patrick Bruel, Cali & Marina with 6,660 copies sold. “Petit Garçon” is Garou‘s first top 10 hit since 2005 when “Tu Es Comme Ca” (with Marilou) reached number ten in June and July.

Emma Louise is a non-mover at four with “Jungle” in her fourth week in the top 10 (5,200 sales / +27%). Josef Salvat falls three places at five with “Diamonds” in his fourth week inside the top 10 (4,800 sales / +14%). In his ninth week inside the ten best-selling songs, Kendji Girac is back up one at number six with “Andalouse” (3,900 sales / +15%). The Avener‘s “Fade Out Lines” slips one place at seven in its 12th week in the top 10 (3,700 sales / =).

After 26 consecutive weeks inside the top five, Sia moves down three at number eight with “Chandelier” (3,600 sales / -5%). In her fifth week on the chart, Selah Sue jumps from 120 to number nine with “Alone” (3,200 sales). It’s her first top 10 hit, “Raggamuffin” was number 18 in November 2010. It’s down one place at ten for Lilly Wood & The Prick And Robin Schulz with “Prayer In C (Robin Schulz Remix)” in their 23rd week inside the top 10 (3,000 sales / -3%).

Two songs drop out of the top 10 this week. After 15 weeks inside the ten best-sellers, “Stay High (Habits Remix)” slips one at number eleven for Tove Lo featuring Hippie Sabotage. The song spent five non-consecutive weeks at two from August to October. Last week’s new entry at eight, “Même Tarif” is down to… number 181 for Alonzo featuring Booba.

In its 11th week on the chart, Hozier‘s “Take Me To Church” climbs six places at 13. Will it be in the top 10 next week ? Place your bets. Blacko‘s “Le Temps Est Compté” is this week’s highest new entry at number 15 (2,300 sales). The song is his second top 20 hit, he peaked at 16 in January 2008 on Soprano‘s “Ferme Les Yeux Et Imagine Toi”. As a member of Sniper, he reached number five in April 2003 with “Gravé Dans La Roche”.

Calogero moves up four places at 21 with “Le Portrait” in his seventh week inside the top 200. “Love Me Harder” jumps from 43 to number 27 for Ariana Grande & The Weeknd in its eighth week on the chart (1,500 sales). The song is Ariana Grande‘s third top 30 hit in France, and the first for The Weeknd.

The French version of Frozen‘s “Let It Go” by Anaïs Delva (“Libérée, Délivrée”) climbs a massive 36 places at 29 in its 41st week inside the 200 best-sellers (1,400 sales). It was number 23 in April. Maroon 5‘s “Animals” is back up six at number 33 in its 14th week on the chart. “Outside” moves up six places at 38 for Calvin Harris featuring Ellie Goulding in its seventh week in the top 200.

Have a very nice week !
