Week Ending 15th March 2015 / Albums Chart

For the 16th (!) consecutive year Les Enfoirés get a Number One album, as Sur La Route Des Enfoirés debuts at the top spot with 94,443 copies sold in two days. That’s amazing, but it’s a lot less than the 141,188 sales of La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés in its first week in March 2013. Last year Bon Anniversaire Les Enfoirés had opened with 103,008 copies sold.

Last week’s Number One, Louane‘s Chambre 12 is down to two (30,741 sales / -49%). The LP has sold 91,111 copies in its two weeks on the chart. Another former contestant from the TV show “The Voice” is inside the top three, as Kendji Girac moves up one place at three with his eponymous album in his 27th week in the top 10 (18,043 sales / +27%). Chaleur Humaine slips two at number four for Christine And The Queens in its 12th week inside the top 10 (15,200 sales / -14%).

The soundtrack to the movie Cinquante Nuances De Grey is a non-mover at number five in its fifth week inside the top ten best-sellers (10,239 sales / -25%). Black M is up one at number six with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 30th week in the top 10 (8,500 sales / -15%).

In its first full week of sales, Madonna‘s Rebel Heart only sold 8,331 copies and falls four places at seven (-51%). It has sold 25,330 copies in ten days. The LP Des Airs De Liberté moves down two at number eight in its second week on the chart (7,600 sales / -25%). Calogero‘s Les Feux D’Artifice is back up one place at nine in its 30th week inside the top 10. The compilation NRJ Hit Music Only 2015 slips one at number ten in its second week inside the ten best-sellers (5,600 sales / -29%).

One album drops out of the top 10 this week. After two weeks in the top 10, Gradur falls five places at 13 with L’Homme Au Bob (5,124 sales / -37%). The LP was Number One two weeks ago.

In its 34th week on the chart, Fréro Delavega‘s self-titled album climbs six at number eleven. Cali enters at twelve with L’Age D’Or (5,316 sales). He got three top 10 albums, with L’Amour Parfait (number seven in July 2004), Menteur (number two in October 2005), and L’Espoir (Number One for one week in February 2008).

L.O.V.E gives Ridsa his first top 20 album, as it opens at number 16 (3,500 sales). Mes Histoires peaked at 44 in June 2014. In her 36th week on the chart, Sia moves back up five places at 18 with 1000 Forms Of Fear. Ibeyi‘s eponymous LP jumps from 32 to number 19 in its fourth week inside the top 250. Vincent Niclo is up a massive 17 places at 20 with Ce Que Je Suis in his 14th week on the chart. The album reached number eleven in December 2014 and January this year.

In its 13th week inside the 250 best-sellers, the soundtrack to the movie La Famille Bélier gets its peak position as it climbs nine at number 21. Smoke + Mirrors is back up twelve places at 23 for Imagine Dragons in its fourth week on the chart. Pierre Bachelet‘s 10 Ans De Bachelet Pour Toujours climbs 22 at number 36 in its fourth week in the top 250. Pierre Bachelet passed away on 15th February 2005. His “En L’An 2001” was number three in January and February 1986 on the singles chart.

Have a great week !
