The album spent 26 weeks at Number One from August 2013 to July 2014.

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After 38 non-consecutive weeks inside the ten best-selling LPs, Black M slips one at number eleven with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde. Soprano‘s Cosmopolitanie moves down four places at 13 in its 31st week on the chart. Encores falls 13 at number 21 for Charles Aznavour in its second week inside the top 250. Last week’s new entry at six, Mac Tyer is down to number 32 with Je Suis Une Légende.

In its 43rd week on the chart, Fréro Delavega‘s eponymous album jumps from 21 to number 15. Eros Ramazzotti is new at 16 with Perfetto (3,000 sales). The new LP is his first top 20 album since 2009 when Ali E Radici reached number five in May. The Avener moves up nine places at 20 with The Wanderings Of The Avener in his 17th week inside the 250 best-sellers.

Bush opens at number 29 for Snoop Dogg (2,000 sales). Ego Trippin’ was his last top 30 LP in France, it peaked at 19 in March 2008. Lisa Angell‘s self-titled album is a new entry at number 46. Her last LP Frou-Frou was at 28 in May 2014. She will represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday with the song “N’Oubliez Pas”.
