Week Ending 14th December 2014 / Albums Chart

AC/DC‘s Rock Or Bust keeps the top spot for a second week in the French albums chart as the LP sold 59,324 copies last week (-35%) for a total of 151,126 in its two weeks on the chart. Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy move back up one place at two with their self-titled LP (58,590 sales / +16%). The album has sold 172,960 copies in its three weeks inside the top 10.

Kendji Girac‘s eponymous album climbs one at number three (57,821 sales / +33%). With 383,283 copies sold, it is ranked as the third best-selling LP for 2014, behind Stromae‘s Racine Carrée (680,821) and Indila‘s Mini World (505,214). In his fourth week inside the ten best-sellers, Johnny Hallyday slips two places at four with Rester Vivant (55,437 sales / +3%). The album has sold 295,370 copies so far. You can notice it was a very close battle for the top spot, as only 3,887 sales separate the best-seller from the number four LP.

The compilation Les Enfoirés En Choeur De 1985 A Aujourd’hui is this week’s highest new entry at five for Les Enfoirés (48,823 sales). Patrick Bruel‘s Live 2014 opens at number six (40,400 sales). His last live LP Seul… Ou Presque reached number nine in June 2009. The compilation NRJ Music Awards 2014 slips two places at seven in its second week on the chart (38,400 sales / +26%).

In his 17th week inside the ten best-sellers, Calogero is a non-mover at number eight with Les Feux D’Artifice (36,400 sales / +52%). It’s down three places at nine for Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 17th week in the top 10 (34,100 sales / +31%). Jul gets his third (!) top 10 album in 2014 as Je Trouve Pas Le Sommeil debuts at number ten (33,700 sales). Dans Ma Paranoïa peaked at seven in March, and Lacrizeomic reached number four in June.

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four weeks inside the ten best-selling LPs, Zaz moves down three places at twelve with Paris (30,500 sales / +28%). Pink Floyd‘s The Endless River falls six at number 13 in its fifth week on the chart. Last week’s new entry at ten, Black City Tour is down to number 40 for Indochine.

Vincent Niclo‘s Ce Que Je Suis is a new entry at eleven with 31,406 copies sold. His Luis debuted and peaked at number three in September 2013 with 14,188 sales. In her 28th week inside the top 250, Christine And The Queens moves back up six places at 26 with Chaleur Humaine.

Les Prêtres jump from 51 to number 31 with Amen in their 36th week on the chart. The album spent three consecutive weeks at the top in April. Hélène Segara enters at 43 with Tout Commence Aujourd’hui (7,315 sales). It’s a very disappointing new entry for her as her last LP Et Si Tu N’Existais Pas (with Joe Dassin) reached number two in October 2013. She also got two Number One albums, with Humaine (for two weeks in March 2003) and Quand L’Eternité… (for one week in September 2006).

Have a great week !
