Week Ending 1st March 2015 / Albums Chart

French rapper Gradur enters straight to the top of the albums chart with his debut LP L’Homme Au Bob. The album sold 33,761 copies last week. There is no change at number two for Christine And The Queens with Chaleur Humaine in her tenth week inside the top 10 (16,645 sales / -8%). The soundtrack to the movie Cinquante Nuances De Grey stays at three in its third week inside the ten best-sellers (14,916 sales / -3%). In its 25th week in the top 10, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous LP is still at number four (12,422 sales / -4%).

Return To Forever is a new entry at five for Scorpions (10,754 sales). It’s a very good result for them, as their last studio album Comeblack peaked at 22 in November 2011. Their MTV Unplugged In Athens was number 85 in December 2013. In his 28th week inside the top 10, Calogero slips one place at six with Les Feux D’Artifice (10,200 sales / -5%). It’s also down one at number seven for Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 28th week inside the ten best-sellers (9,900 sales / -6%).

M. Pokora‘s R.E.D. is a non-mover at eight in its fourth week in the top 10 (8,368 sales). Texas 25 falls two places at nine for Texas in its second week on the chart (7,100 sales / -32%). Ed Sheeran spends a fourth week inside the top 10 as x climbs four at number ten (6,700 sales).

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Last week’s Number One, Fauve‘s Vieux Frères – Partie 2 is down to eleven in its second week inside the top 250 (5,800 sales / -73%). Their Vieux Frères – Partie 1 went 2-5 in its second week, and spent three weeks inside the ten best-sellers. After five consecutive weeks in the top 10, The Avener falls five places at 15 with The Wanderings Of The Avener. In its second week on the chart, Smoke + Mirrors moves down 22 at number 31 for Imagine Dragons (2,800 sales / -65%).

Diana Krall is back up six places at 13 with Wallflower in her fourth week inside the top 250. In his 18th week on the chart, Amaury Vassili jumps from 35 to number 21 with Amaury Vassili Chante Mike Brant. The LP peaked at seven in January.

Physical Graffiti opens at number 23 for Led Zeppelin. Chris Brown X Tyga are new at 33 with Fan Of A Fan – The Album (2,600 sales). It’s Chris Brown‘s third top 40 LP in France, and the first for Tyga. His Hotel California reached number 121 in April 2013. Chaud is a disappointing new entry at 55 for Luce (1,400 sales). After her victory at the TV show “Nouvelle Star” in 2010, her debut album Première Phalange had peaked at number eleven in June 2011.

Have a great week !
