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 !

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).

Have a great week !

For the first time this year, only one album sold over 10,000 copies last week. This sad thing happened for the last time during the week ending 11th May 2014 when Indila‘s Mini World was at the top with 11,198 sales, and Les Prêtres were at number two with Amen with 9,300 copies sold.

Black M jumps from seven to number six with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 34th week inside the ten best-sellers (6,200 sales / -23%). A compilation gets this week’s highest debut, as 40 Hits Spring 2015 opens at seven (5,300 sales). Another one, NRJ Spring 2015 is a non-mover at number eight in its third week in the top 10 (4,900 sales / -29%).

Soprano‘s Cosmopolitanie climbs one place at nine in its sixth week inside the top 10 (4,500 sales). The soundtrack to the movie Fifty Shades Of Grey also moves up one at number ten in its eighth week inside the ten best-selling LPs (4,200 sales).

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After just one week in the top 10 (so far), Sam Smith slips two places at eleven with In The Lonely Hour. Last week’s new entry at four, Kaaris moves down to number 13 with Le Bruit De Mon Ame (3,300 sales / -76%).

In his 12th week on the chart, The Avener is up a massive 25 places at 15 with The Wanderings Of The Avener (2,900 sales). The album debuted and peaked at number two in January. It’s a very good week for Scorpions, their Return To Forever jumps from 70 to number 17 in its seventh week inside the top 250 (2,500 sales). PTX moves up 53 places at 19 for Pentatonix in its third week on the chart (2,300 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.
