Week Ending 10th May 2015 / Albums Chart

Unsurprisingly Francis Cabrel spends a second consecutive week at the top of the French albums chart with In Extremis (40,682 sales / -63%), the LP has sold a total of 149,550 copies so far. There is no change at number two also for Louane with Chambre 12 in her tenth week inside the top 10 (21,318 sales / +2%).

Thanks to a new edition with five new songs, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous album is back up one place at three in its 35th week inside the ten best-sellers (18,087 sales / +107%). The compilation Top 50 – 30 Ans (100 Tubes) Vol. 2 is this week’s highest new entry at number four (11,000 sales). Another compilation, NRJ Hit List 2015 opens at five (8,000 sales).

Mac Tyer enters at number six with Je Suis Une Légende (7,711 sales). The new album is his first top 10 LP, he peaked at 25 in October 2010 with Hat-Trick. In her 20th week in the top 10, Christine And The Queens slips two places at seven with Chaleur Humaine (6,600 sales / -10%).

Encores is new at number eight for the (real) legend Charles Aznavour (6,168 sales). His Duos reached number three in January 2009. Soprano climbs one place at nine with Cosmopolitanie in his ninth week inside the top 10 (5,000 sales / +19%). Black M is down three at number ten with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 38th week inside the ten best-selling LPs (4,900 sales / +2%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After three weeks in the top 10, Booba‘s D.U.C. falls seven at number 15. Last week’s new entry at three, The Magic Whip is down to number 19 for Blur (3,400 sales / -68%). Another debut from last week, the album Les Stars Font Leur Cinéma goes from six to number 20 (3,400 sales / -41%). The compilation W9 Hits 2015 Vol. 2 moves down a massive 22 places at 31 in its third week on the chart.

You can find these albums at €6.99 : in its 75th week inside the top 250, the soundtrack to the movie La Reine Des Neiges (Frozen) climbs eleven at number 13 (4,300 sales), Stromae‘s Racine Carrée moves up 29 places at 16 in its 90th week on the chart (3,800 sales), and Indila jumps from 58 to number 22 with Mini World in her 63rd week inside the 250 best-sellers (3,000 sales).

Affaire de Famille is new at number 27 for MZ. Django Django‘s Born Under Saturn debuts at 34. Their eponymous LP peaked at number 68 in February 2012. Mumford & Sons are not huge in France, that’s a fact as they only open at 54 with Wilder Mind. It’s their first top 60 album though, as Sigh No More reached number 173 in April 2010, and Babel was number 67 in September 2012.

Have a good week !
