Week Ending 29th March 2015 / Albums Chart

There is no surprise as Les Enfoirés spend a third consecutive week at Number One on the French albums chart with Sur La Route Des Enfoirés (35,975 sales / -59%). The LP has sold 218,355 copies in 16 days, we can compare that with the 334,668 La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés had sold in 2013. Last year Bon Anniversaire Les Enfoirés had sold 240,628 copies.

Louane‘s Chambre 12 is a non-mover at two in its fourth week inside the top 10 (20,404 sales / -9%). The album has sold 133,952 copies so far. Another contestant from the TV show “The Voice” (he won last year), Kendji Girac stays at number three with his eponymous LP in his 29th week inside the ten best-sellers (11,269 sales / -20%). Like last week, we have a static top four as Christine And The Queens is always at four with Chaleur Humaine in her 14th week in the top 10 (10,700 sales / -13%).

In his 32nd week inside the top 10, Black M moves back up three places at five with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (6,700 sales). The soundtrack to the movie Cinquante Nuances De Grey climbs one at number six in its seventh week inside the ten best-selling LPs (6,700 sales / -12%).

Soprano‘s Cosmopolitanie spends a fourth week in the top 10, as it jumps from eleven to number seven (6,200 sales / +7%). The album debuted and peaked at two last October. The compilation NRJ Spring 2015 is this week’s highest new entry at eight with 5,500 copies sold. The tribute LP to Pierre Bachelet, Nous L’Avons Tant Aimé is new at number nine (4,957 sales). Pierre Bachelet passed away on 15th February 2005. Calogero is back inside the top 10, as Les Feux D’Artifice is back up four places at ten in its 32nd week on the chart (4,500 sales).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Last week’s new entry at five, Eléor is down to number eleven for Dominque A (4,400 sales / -63%). Another tribute LP, this one to Jean Ferrat named Des Airs De Liberté falls five places at 14 in its fourth week inside the top 250. In its second week on the chart, Mark Knopfler‘s Tracker moves down 13 at number 19 (2,900 sales / -63%). It’s down eleven places at 21 for Björk with Vulnicura in her sixth week inside the 250 best-sellers.

In its 37th (!) week on the chart, Sam Smith‘s In The Lonely Hour finally gets its highest-charting position as it climbs eight at number twelve (4,400 sales / +22%). Will it enter the top 10 next week ? Place your bets. Fréro Delavega‘s self-titled LP is up three places at 13 in its 36th week in the top 250. The soundtrack to La Reine Des Neiges (Frozen) jumps from 28 to number 15 in its 69th week on the chart.

Toto XIV moves up a massive 106 places at 17 for Toto in its second week inside the top 250 (3,703 sales). It’s their first top 20 album in France since 1999 when Mindfields peaked at number six in March. Madonna‘s Rebel Heart falls five at number 23 (2,638 sales / -33%), the LP has sold 31,905 copies in its four weeks on the chart. In the same amount of time, her last two studio albums Hard Candy (in April and May 2008) and MDNA (in April 2012) had sold 109,835 (CDs only, downloads were not included at that time) and 65,376 copies respectively.

In his sixth week inside the 250 best-sellers, Pierre Bachelet is up 23 places at 30 with 10 Ans De Bachelet Pour Toujours. Conte De Tess III gives Falcko his first top 40 album, as it opens at number 35. His Conte De Tess II reached number 60 in March 2013.

Have a great week !
