Week Ending 1st March 2015 / Albums Chart

French rapper Gradur enters straight to the top of the albums chart with his debut LP L’Homme Au Bob. The album sold 33,761 copies last week. There is no change at number two for Christine And The Queens with Chaleur Humaine in her tenth week inside the top 10 (16,645 sales / -8%). The soundtrack to the movie Cinquante Nuances De Grey stays at three in its third week inside the ten best-sellers (14,916 sales / -3%). In its 25th week in the top 10, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous LP is still at number four (12,422 sales / -4%).

Return To Forever is a new entry at five for Scorpions (10,754 sales). It’s a very good result for them, as their last studio album Comeblack peaked at 22 in November 2011. Their MTV Unplugged In Athens was number 85 in December 2013. In his 28th week inside the top 10, Calogero slips one place at six with Les Feux D’Artifice (10,200 sales / -5%). It’s also down one at number seven for Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 28th week inside the ten best-sellers (9,900 sales / -6%).

M. Pokora‘s R.E.D. is a non-mover at eight in its fourth week in the top 10 (8,368 sales). Texas 25 falls two places at nine for Texas in its second week on the chart (7,100 sales / -32%). Ed Sheeran spends a fourth week inside the top 10 as x climbs four at number ten (6,700 sales).

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Last week’s Number One, Fauve‘s Vieux Frères – Partie 2 is down to eleven in its second week inside the top 250 (5,800 sales / -73%). Their Vieux Frères – Partie 1 went 2-5 in its second week, and spent three weeks inside the ten best-sellers. After five consecutive weeks in the top 10, The Avener falls five places at 15 with The Wanderings Of The Avener. In its second week on the chart, Smoke + Mirrors moves down 22 at number 31 for Imagine Dragons (2,800 sales / -65%).

Diana Krall is back up six places at 13 with Wallflower in her fourth week inside the top 250. In his 18th week on the chart, Amaury Vassili jumps from 35 to number 21 with Amaury Vassili Chante Mike Brant. The LP peaked at seven in January.

Physical Graffiti opens at number 23 for Led Zeppelin. Chris Brown X Tyga are new at 33 with Fan Of A Fan – The Album (2,600 sales). It’s Chris Brown‘s third top 40 LP in France, and the first for Tyga. His Hotel California reached number 121 in April 2013. Chaud is a disappointing new entry at 55 for Luce (1,400 sales). After her victory at the TV show “Nouvelle Star” in 2010, her debut album Première Phalange had peaked at number eleven in June 2011.

In his 24th week inside the top 10, Calogero stays at three with Les Feux D’Artifice (9,800 sales / +21%).

His last album, Running Still was number five in November 2011. In his 24th week in the top 10, Black M slips one place at seven with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (6,500 sales / =).

Ed Sheeran‘s x spends a second week inside the ten best-selling LPs, as it jumps from 19 to number eight in its 32nd week on the chart (5,900 sales / +90%). The album opened at five last June. The compilation 40 Hits 2015 enters at number nine (4,600 sales). In his third week inside the top 10, Asaf Avidan is down two places at ten with Gold Shadow (4,400 sales / -24%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. In his third week on the chart, Benjamin Clementine falls four at number eleven with At Least For Now. After four non-consecutive weeks in the top 10, Amaury Vassili moves down five places at 14 with Amaury Vassili Chante Mike Brant. It’s also down five at number 15 for Zaz with Paris in her 12th week on the chart. Last week’s new entry at five, The Pale Emperor falls to number 26 for Marilyn Manson (2,400 sales / -64%).

Indila‘s Mini World climbs five at number 16 in its 49th week on the chart. The soundtrack to the movie La Famille Bélier is up three places at 23 in its seventh week inside the 250 best-sellers. Fréro Delavega‘s self-titled album jumps from 34 to number 25 in its 28th week on the chart. It debuted at Number One last July.

In his 76th week inside the top 250, Stromae moves back up six places at 32 with Racine Carrée. Sous France is a new entry at number 35 for Brav. It’s a good week for Bernard Lavilliers, his Acoustique climbs 16 places at 42 in its tenth week on the chart.

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 !

Week Ending 2nd November 2014 / Albums Chart

As you probably know now, the French singles chart (“Top 50”) celebrates its 30th birthday on 4th November, and the compilation Top 50 – 30 Ans (100 Tubes) debuts straight to the top of the albums chart with 20,515 sales. To be honest, the LP is totally focused on the nine years (1984-1993) the Top 50 was broadcasted on the TV channel Canal +.

It’s quite surprising to see the second volume of La Bande A Renaud entering at number two with only 17,190 sales when you consider that the first volume debuted with 54,030 copies sold in June and spent four consecutive weeks at the top. La Bande A Renaud has sold 225,100 copies so far and is back up eleven places at 26 in its 21st week on the chart.

Last week’s Number One, Kendji Girac is down to three with his eponymous LP (16,288 sales / +12%). The album has sold 201,441 copies in its eight weeks inside the top 10. Calogero‘s Les Feux D’Artifice climbs three places at four in its 11th week inside the ten best-sellers (10,300 sales / +66%).

In its fourth week in the top 10, Songs Of Innocence moves down three at number five for U2 (8,600 sales / -37%). Forever Gentlemen Vol. 2 also falls three places at six in its second week on the chart (8,500 sales / -31%). Soprano slips two at number seven with Cosmopolitanie in his third week inside the top 10 (7,400 sales / -20%).

Amaury Vassili debuts at eight with Amaury Vassili Chante Mike Brant (6,631 sales). It’s his third top 10 album, after Vincerò (number nine in April 2009) and Canterò (number eight in April and May 2011). His last LP Una Parte Di Me peaked at 15 in November 2012.

Taylor Swift‘s 1989 is new at number nine with 5,980 copies sold (1989 is Number One on the download chart with 2,331 sales). It’s a lot better than her last LP Red which debuted and peaked at 30 in November 2012 with 2,940 sales. 1989 is her first top 10 album (and even top 20) in France, Fearless reached number 26 in July 2009. In its third week inside top 10, Les Enfants Du Top 50 is down six places at ten (5,700 sales / -44%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four consecutive weeks inside the ten best-sellers, Les Stentors fall six at number 15 with Rendez-Vous Au Cinéma. Mireille Mathieu moves down seven places at 17 with Une Vie D’Amour in her fifth week on the chart. Dany Brillant‘s Le Dernier Romantique goes from six to number 19 in its third week in the top 250 (3,600 sales / -46%). Last week’s new entry at eight, .5: The Gray Chapter is down to number 43 for Slipknot (1,800 sales / -69%).

Two compilations debut inside the top 20, NRJ Total Hits 2014 at eleven (5,300 sales), and W9 Hits 2015 at number 18. Led Zeppelin re-enter at 14 with Led Zeppelin IV, and are new at number 29 with Houses Of The Holy. Charles Pasi gets his first top 30 LP with Sometimes Awake which is a new entry at 22. His last album Uncaged reached number 129 in April 2011.

Pietà/Stabat Mater (Ltd) is new at 28 for Philippe Jaroussky. As Lady Gaga appeared on French TV show “C’Est A Vous” last Friday, Cheek To Cheek moves back up 16 places at 42 for Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga in its sixth week on the chart. The LP debuted and peaked at number nine.

Have a very good week !

Week Ending 28th October 2012 / Albums Chart

It’s a very interesting albums chart because there were big new releases last week. And the winner is… Francis Cabrel with “Vise Le Ciel”. It’s not a surprise at all, as his last albums all reached the top spot. In this album, Francis Cabrel sings Bob Dylan‘s songs in French, and we can notice that the first-week sales figures of “Vise Le Ciel” are rather poor (36053) in comparison with the ones of his last studio album “Des Roses & Des Orties” (120385) in April 2008, that album stayed at the top for six non-consecutive weeks.

Florent Pagny is new at two with “Gracias A La Vida” (17487 sales). His last studio album “Tout Et Son Contraire” entered at the top spot in November 2010 with 24864 sales, it was number one for that week only. After three consecutive weeks at the top, Muse‘s “The 2nd Law” falls two at number three in its fourth week in the top 10 (14247 sales, -26%).

“Super Welter” is new at four for Raphaël (12938 sales). It’s a disappointing new entry, as his last three albums all reached the top spot, “Caravane” for 13 weeks from May 2005 to August 2006, “Je Sais Que La Terre Est Plate” for one week in March 2008 with first-week sales of 72248, and “Pacific 231” for one week in October 2010.

In its fifth week in the top 10, “Opéra Rouge” is back up one place at five for Vincent Niclo & Les Choeurs De L’Armée Rouge (8713 sales, +70%). Stephan Eicher enters at six with  “L’Envolée” (8642 sales), he was number five with his last album “Eldorado” in April 2007.

“Les Grands Moments – Best Of” is a new entry at seven for Michel Sardou (8599 sales), his last studio album “Etre Une Femme 2010” was number two for three weeks in September 2010. The musical “1789, Les Amants De La Bastille” is up a massive 37 places at number eight (6835 sales), the album reached number seven in April.

“L’Apogée” falls seven at number nine for Sexion D’Assaut in its 32nd week in the top 10 (6132 sales, -32%). In its second week in the top 10, the compilation “Starfloor 2013” is down three places at ten.

Six albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four weeks in the top 10, Garou falls eight at 11 with “Rhythm And Blues”, “NRJ Total Hits 2012 Vol. 2” is also down eight at number 12. Lou Doillon‘s “Places” is down four at 13 and spent seven weeks in the top 10, C2C‘s “Tetra” falls eleven at 16. After three weeks in the top 10, Diana Krall is also down eleven at number 19 with “Glad Rag Doll”. Birdy falls ten at 20, “Birdy” spent 11 weeks in the top 10.

Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine is new at 14 with his new live album “Homo Plebis Ultimae Tour” (4787 sales). Amaury Vassili enters at number 17 with “Una Parte Di Me” (4607 sales), his two albums had reached the top 10, “Vincero” at number nine in April 2009, and “Canterò” at number eight in April and May 2011.

“Until Now” is new at number 41 for Swedish House Mafia, “Until One” was number 66 in October 2010. Kendrick Lamar enters at 57 with “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City”. “House Of Gold & Bones Part 1” is new at 58 for Stone Sour, “Audio Secrecy” reached number 29 in September 2010.
