Week Ending 3rd May 2015 / Albums Chart

Francis Cabrel‘s In Extremis debuts straight to the top of this week’s French albums chart with… 108,868 copies sold ! It’s not that surprising as it’s his seventh Number One LP, after Sarbacane (for ten weeks from September to November 1989), the hugely successful Samedi Soir Sur La Terre (for 29 weeks from April 1994 to February 1995), Hors Saison (for 14 weeks from April to July 1999), Les Beaux Dégâts (for five weeks in May and June 2004), Des Roses Et Des Orties (for six weeks from April to June 2008), and Vise Le Ciel Ou Bob Dylan Revisité (for two weeks in October and November 2012).

After four non-consecutive weeks at Number One, Louane slips to two with Chambre 12 in her ninth week inside the top 10 (20,963 sales / +26%). The Magic Whip gives Blur their first top 10 LP in France, as it enters at number three with 10,545 sales. Think Tank peaked at eleven in May 2003.

In its 34th week inside the ten best-sellers, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous album moves down two places at four (8,751 sales / +21%). Chaleur Humaine stays at number five for Christine And The Queens in its 19th week in the top 10 (7,335 sales / +11%).

Les Stars Font Leur Cinéma opens at six with 5,797 copies sold. In this album, you can find artists like Tal, M. Pokora, Corneille giving their own versions of songs from famous movies. In his 37th week inside the top 10, Black M is a non-mover at number seven with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (4,800 sales / +7%).

Booba‘s D.U.C. falls four places at eight in its third week inside the ten best-selling LPs (4,400 sales / -34%). The compilation W9 Hits 2015 Vol. 2 climbs two at number nine in its second week on the chart. Soprano is down two places at ten with Cosmopolitanie in his eighth week in the top 10 (4,200 sales / -2%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four consecutive weeks inside the top 10, Selah Sue slips two at number eleven with Reason. Violetta‘s Crecimos Juntos moves down six places at twelve in its second week on the chart. Les Enfoirés fall five at number 15 with Sur La Route Des Enfoirés. Last week’s new entry at three, Somnambules is down to number 18 for Raphaël (3,200 sales / -54%).

As he sang at the final of the TV show “The Voice” on 25th April, Josh Groban jumps from 45 to number 13 with Stages in his second week inside the top 250 (3,600 sales). It’s Josh Groban‘s second top 20 LP in France, after Awake (number five in January 2007). The compilation Planète Rap 2015 is new at 17.

In its 23rd week on the chart, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy‘s self-titled album is up five places at 22. It spent one week at the top last November. As you can now find it on DVD, the soundtrack from the movie La Famille Bélier climbs 16 at number 27 in its 20th week inside the 250 best-sellers.

Je Vous Salis Ma Rue enters at 29 for Kacem Wapalek. Street Réalité is another new entry, at number 33 for Kamikaz (2,300 sales). This year’s winner of the TV show “Nouvelle Star”, Emji debuts at 53 with her eponymous EP which was only released digitally (1,200 sales).

Week Ending 5th April 2015 / Albums Chart

Louane‘s Chambre 12 climbs one place to spend a second week at the top of the French albums chart in its fifth week inside the top 10 (25,577 sales / +25%). The LP has sold 159,529 copies so far. After three consecutive weeks at Number One, Les Enfoirés are down to two with Sur La Route Des Enfoirés in their fourth week on the chart (24,100 sales / -33%).

Reason gives Selah Sue her second top 10 album in France as it’s this week’s highest new entry at number three with 17,016 copies sold. Her self-titled LP peaked at nine in April 2012. There is another debut inside the top five as Kaaris opens at four with Le Bruit De Mon Ame (13,600 sales). It’s the rapper’s second top five LP, his Or Noir reached number three in November 2013.

In its 30th week inside the ten best-sellers, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous album moves down two places at five (11,700 sales / +4%). Chaleur Humaine slips two at number six for Christine And The Queens in its 15th week in the top 10 (11,500 sales / +7%). It’s also down two places at seven for Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 33rd week inside the top 10 (8,000 sales / +19%). The compilation NRJ Spring 2015 is a non-mover at number eight in its second week on the chart (6,900 sales / +25%).

In his 38th week inside the 250 best-sellers, Sam Smith has finally managed to enter the top 10 as In The Lonely Hour climbs three places at nine (6,800 sales / +55%). Soprano‘s Cosmopolitanie falls three at number ten in its fifth week in the top 10.

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After seven consecutive weeks inside the ten best-sellers, the soundtrack to the movie Fifty Shades Of Grey moves down five places at eleven. Calogero also falls five at number 15 with Les Feux D’Artifice in his 33rd week on the chart. Last week’s new entry at nine, the tribute album to Pierre Bachelet, Nous L’Avons Tant Aimé is down to number 22.

It’s not their third top 10 LP in France, but Endless Forms Most Beautiful jumps from 148 to number twelve for Nightwish as there was a physical release last week (6,000 sales). Once was number nine in June 2004, and Dark Passion Play peaked at six in October 2007. Julie Zenatti enters at 13 with Blanc (5,100 sales). It was close from being her highest-charting album, Comme Vous… reached number twelve in November 2004. Her last studio LP Plus De Diva had only peaked at 30 in March 2010.

Fenomeno is new at number 14 for Lartiste (4,900 sales). In his third week on the chart, Mark Knopfler is back up three places at 16 with Tracker. The Day Is My Enemy gives The Prodigy their third top 20 album in France, as it debuts at number 17 (4,300 sales). Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned was also at 17 in August 2004, and The Fat Of The Land peaked at number two in July 1997 (behind the slightly different Romanza by Andrea Bocelli).

I Muvrini‘s Invicta opens at 18. Their Gioia reached number six in March 2010. As there was a show about their long careers on French TV last week, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy climb a massive 29 places at 21 in their 19th week inside the top 250.

French dance DJ / producer Madeon has a new entry at number 29 with Adventure (3,000 sales). Another tribute LP, but for a living artist : Joyeux Anniversaire M’sieur Dutronc opens at 30. Love Me Tender is new at number 37 for Vigon Bamy Jay (2,500 sales). Les Soul Men debuted and peaked at seven in April 2013. Erick Bamy sadly passed away on 27th November 2014, aged 64.

Have a very nice week.

Week Ending 15th February 2015 / Albums Chart

M. Pokora‘s R.E.D. just keeps the top spot of the French albums chart for a second consecutive week (20,035 sales / -68%). The LP has sold 83,367 copies in its two weeks on the chart.

M. Pokora‘s major threats came from two big winners of last Friday’s French music awards (“Victoires De La Musique”). In her 37th week on the chart, Christine And The Queens gets her peak position as Chaleur Humaine moves up three places at two (19,153 sales / +125%). She won two trophies, as best female artist and for her video of “Saint Claude”. “Un Jour Au Mauvais Endroit” won song of the year, and Calogero‘s Les Feux D’Artifice is still at number three in its 26th week inside the top 10 (17,055 sales / +13%).

The soundtrack to the movie Cinquante Nuances De Grey (Fifty Shades Of Grey) is this week’s highest new entry at four with 16,753 copies sold. In its 23rd week inside the ten best-sellers, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous LP falls three places at five (16,490 sales / +8%). Even if he was not nominated at all in the French music awards, his album has now sold a great total of 657,360 copies.

In his 26th week in the top 10, Black M climbs one at number six with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (12,579 sales / +66%). Diana Krall slips three places at seven with Wallflower in her second week on the chart (8,400 sales / -26%).

Julien Doré won the award for best male artist at the “Victoires De La Musique” and owns two LPs in this week’s top 15 : Løve jumps from 38 to number eight in its 68th week inside the top 250 (6,706 sales), and his Løve Live opens at eleven (6,300 sales). Indila‘s Mini World is down one place at nine in its 35th week inside the ten best-sellers (6,649 sales / +25%). The Avener falls four at number ten with The Wanderings Of The Avener in his fourth week in the top 10 (6,570 sales / -19%).

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After three non-consecutive weeks inside the top 10, x falls six places at 15 for Ed Sheeran. Jul moves down eight at number 18 with Je Trouve Pas Le Sommeil in his tenth week on the chart.

Two compilations are new entries inside the top 20, as NRJ 200% Hits 2015 debuts at twelve, and 66 Hits 2015 enters at number 13. It was named album of the year at the French music awards last Friday : Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy‘s self-titled LP is back up seven places at 14 in its 12th week inside the 250 best-sellers.

In its 32nd week on the chart, Sia‘s 1000 Forms Of Fear climbs nine at number 16. They won nothing last Friday, but Brigitte jump from 40 to number 19 with A Bouche Que Veux-Tu in their 13th week in the top 250. Ce Que Je Suis is up 13 places at 20 for Vincent Niclo in its tenth week on the chart.

He won another trophy for best tour : Stromae moves up seven at number 24 with Racine Carrée in his 78th week inside the top 250. In his 31st week on the chart, Sam Smith finally enters the top 30 as In The Lonely Hour climbs a massive 31 places at 30.

Anaïs Delva Et Les Princesses Disney debuts at number 33 for Anaïs Delva (2,849 sales). She sang the French version of Frozen‘s “Let It Go” named “Libérée, Délivrée” in French. Sucker is new at 42 for Charli XCX (2,317 sales). Her True Romance didn’t chart.

Have a very nice week !

Week Ending 11th January 2015 / Albums Chart

Kendji Girac‘s eponymous LP still rules the French albums chart for a ninth non-consecutive week (17,433 sales / -32%). The album has now sold a great total of 581,605 copies in its 18 weeks on the chart (all of them inside the top five). There is no change also at number two for Black M‘s Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in its 21st week inside the ten best-sellers (10,200 sales / -35%). We have a static top three as Calogero is a non-mover at three with Les Feux D’Artifice in his 21st week in the top 10 (9,060 sales / -35%).

The compilation NRJ Hits 2015 gets its peak position as it climbs one at number four in its second week inside the top 10 (7,500 sales / -33%). AC/DC‘s Rock Or Bust is up one place too, at five in its sixth week inside the ten best-selling albums (6,805 sales / -39%). There is another compilation in the top 10 as NRJ Music Awards 2014 slips two at number six in its sixth week on the chart (6,665 sales / -51%).

Paris jumps from nine to number seven for Zaz in its eighth week in the top 10 (6,352 sales / -32%). Jul is back inside the top 10 as Je Trouve Pas Le Sommeil moves up six places at eight in its fifth week on the chart (5,944 sales / -7%). Chaleur Humaine climbs one at number nine for Christine And The Queens in its fourth week inside the ten best-sellers (5,656 sales / -33%). It’s down three places at ten for Johnny Hallyday with Rester Vivant (5,385 sales / -48%). The LP has sold 440,757 copies in its eight weeks in the top 10.

One album drops out of the top 10 this week. After six weeks inside the ten best-selling LPs, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy‘s self-titled album falls four places at twelve. It spent one week at the top in November.

In his fifth week on the chart, Vincent Niclo moves back up five at number eleven with Ce Que Je Suis (4,716 sales). It’s a very good week for Amaury Vassili, his Amaury Vassili Chante Mike Brant jumps from 34 to number 13 in its 11th week inside the top 250. It opened at eight in November.

In its sixth week on the chart, Paraît-Il is up a massive 19 places at 22 for Christophe Willem (2,258 sales). The album has a second life after the Christmas period as it started quite badly (17-38-46-48). Christophe Willem was Number One with Inventaire (for five weeks from April to June 2007) and Caféine (for two weeks in May and June 2009).

It’s a great week for Zaz : as you can find Recto Verso and Zaz at mid-price, the former climbs ten at number 28 in its 88th week inside the 250 best-sellers, and the latter moves up 25 places at 49 in its 252nd (!) week on the chart. The soundtrack to the movie La Famille Bélier has another good week, as it jumps from 48 to number 37 in its fourth week in the top 250.

Have a very nice week !

The 2014 French Albums Chart

It’s amazing to notice that Stromae‘s Racine Carrée is the best-selling LP in France for the second year in a row ! The album has sold 680,233 copies. Two albums (Stromae and Daft Punk) had sold over 500,000 copies in 2013, we have three one year later, as this year’s winner of the TV show “The Voice” Kendji Girac is at number two with his eponymous album (548,914 sales) and Indila is at three with Mini World (543,590 sales).

2014 has been a great year for Johnny Hallyday and Calogero, the former has sold 430,462 copies of his Rester Vivant, and Calogero‘s Les Feux D’Artifice is at number five with 373,869 copies sold. There are two members of Sexion D’Assaut inside the top 10 : at six, we find Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (371,044 sales), and Maître Gims is number ten with his 2013 LP Subliminal (287,190 sales). The latter was the third best-seller in 2013 with 497,513 copies sold.

In 2013 La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés had sold 421,200 copies, Les Enfoirés‘ annual LP Bon Anniversaire Les Enfoirés “only” made 316,335 sales one year later. With only five weeks on the chart, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy‘s self-titled album is already at eight with 300,340 sales. Florent Pagny‘s Vieillir Avec Toi was number nine in 2013, it’s still at nine for 2014 with 294,720 copies sold.

They were not far from the top 10 : AC/DC‘s Rock Or Bust (284,197 sales), the 2013 released Random Access Memories by Daft Punk (254,320), Coldplay with Ghost Stories (247,106), La Bande A Renaud (242,115 / the second volume sold 97,758 copies).

It has been a very good year also for Zaz, her Paris sold 219,016 copies and Recto Verso another 132,854. Pink Floyd and Pharrell Williams both sold over 200,000 copies, 217,170 for The Endless River, and 203,597 for Pharrell WilliamsG I R L.

It’s not bad for Michael Jackson, his Xscape sold 129,796 in 2014, and for U2‘s Songs Of Innocence which made 128,991 sales even if it was given for free on iTunes for weeks before its physical release. It’s more disappointing for Yannick Noah with his Combats Ordinaires (113,802 sales), Bénabar‘s Inspiré De Faits Réels (57,699), and A Coup De Rêves only sold 30,304 copies for Ben L’Oncle Soul. Cheek To Cheek was not a big seller in 2014 for Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga (29,815 copies).
