Week Ending 7th September 2014 / Singles Chart

As expected, there is no surprise at Number One on this week’s French singles chart where you can still find Lilly Wood & The Prick And Robin Schulz with “Prayer In C (Robin Schulz Remix)” in their tenth week inside the top 10 (+6% – 11,500 sales). The song spends its ninth consecutive week at the top, and also leads the new Streaming Chart (1,049,321 streams). Every week I will give you the position in this new chart of every song mentioned in this article with the brackets (SC) until the streams are included into the singles chart in October.

There is no change at two for Tove Lo featuring Hippie Sabotage with “Stay High (Habits Remix)” in their third week inside the ten best-sellers (+20% – 5,500 sales / SC : 4 – 494,558 streams). Sia‘s “Chandelier” is a non-mover at number three in its 15th week in the top 10 (-9% – 4,200 sales / SC : 2 – 699,420 streams). In their 11th week inside the top 10, Coldplay stay at four with “A Sky Full Of Stars” (+2% – 4,200 sales / SC : 9 – 469,461 streams). We have a static top five this week, as “Lovers On The Sun” is still at number five for David Guetta featuring Sam Martin in its sixth week inside the ten best-selling songs (-3% – 3,300 sales / SC : 7 – 483,004 streams).

It’s a good week for Sam Smith, “Stay With Me” moves up two places at six in its third week in the top 10 (+7% – 3,000 sales  / SC : 22). It equals the peak position of Naughty Boy‘s “La La La” (in September 2013) in which he is a featured artist. There is no move at number seven for Calogero with “Un Jour Au Mauvais Endroit” in his fourth week inside the top 10 (= / 2,900 sales / SC : 58). Black M slips two places at eight with “Sur Ma Route”, the song spends its 16th week inside the ten best-sellers (SC : 8 – 474,411 streams).

George Ezra‘s “Budapest” is new inside the top 10 as it climbs eight at number nine in its tenth week on the chart (+39% – 2,500 sales / SC : 48). Fly Project‘s “Toca-Toca” is up two places at ten in its 12th week inside the top 200 (2,300 sales / SC : 23).

Two songs drop out of the top 10 this week. The original version of “Prayer In C” by Lilly Wood & The Prick falls 31 places at 40 in its third week on the chart (-58% – 1,100 sales). Last week’s new entry at ten, “Guts Over Fear” is down to number 43 for Eminem featuring Sia (SC : 37)

In its 17th week inside the 200 best-sellers, “Wiggle” moves back up two places at eleven for Jason Derulo featuring Snoop Dogg (SC : 6 – 483,467 streams). As it was sung by a contestant on the TV show “The Voice Kids” on  Saturday 30th August, “Eblouie Par La Nuit” climbs 16 places at number 13 for Zaz in its 32nd week on the chart (+40% – 2,100 sales).

This week’s highest new entry goes to Johnny Hallyday with “Regarde-Nous” at number 14 (1,912 sales), the song is his 48th top 20 hit and the first since January 2010 when “Et Maintenant… (Tour 66)” peaked at three. In her second week in the top 200, Emma Louise jumps from 35 to number 15 with “Jungle” (1,900 sales). Maroon 5‘s “Maps” moves up 15 places at 17 in its tenth week on the chart (+21% – 1,700 sales / SC : 10 – 460,038 streams), it’s their fifth top 20 hit in France and the first four all went into the top 10.

Kendji Girac debuts at number 20 with “Cool” (1,600 sales), his “Je M’Abandonne” also enters at 25 (1,500 sales).

Magic System‘s “Tu Es Fou” jumps from 40 to number 30 in its 13th week inside the 200 best-sellers. In its ninth week on the chart, “Djon Maya Mai” is up 16 places at 34 for Synapson featuring Victor Démé.

As the song is used in the new Toyota Yaris TV advert, “Locked Out Of Heaven” climbs a massive 140 places at 37 for Bruno Mars in its 96th week in the top 200 (1,100 sales / SC : 95). The song reached number three in February 2013. Black M‘s “La Légende Black” moves up 28 at number 38 in its eighth week on the chart (SC : 65). It’s a good week also for Soprano, his “Cosmo” is back up 15 places at 39 in its fourth week inside the top 200 (SC : 43).

Week Ending 4th May 2014 / Albums Chart

In her tenth week inside the top 10, Indila climbs one place to spend a second week at the top of the French albums chart with Mini World (12,026 sales / -5%). The LP has sold 194,859 copies so far. After three consecutive weeks at Number One, Les Prêtres are down to two with Amen (10,427 sales / -19%), the album has sold 73,842 copies in its four weeks on the chart.

There is no change at number three for Stromae‘s Racine Carrée which spends its 37th week inside the ten best-sellers (10,290 sales / -3%), it has sold a total of 1,606,396 copies so far. The compilation NRJ Spring Hits 2014 is this week’s highest new entry at four. In his second week on the chart, Patrick Sébastien slips one place at five with Ça Va Être Ta Fête ! (6,583 sales / -14%).

Damon Albarn gets his first solo top 10 album, as Everyday Robots debuts at number six with 6,345 sales. It’s surprising to know that Blur has never managed to get a top 10 LP in France, Think Tank peaked at eleven in May 2003. As a member of Gorillaz, he had three top 10 albums, including a Number One, Demon Days (for one week in May 2005). The Frozen soundtrack (La Reine Des Neiges) stays at seven in its eighth week in the top 10 (5,697 sales / +8%).

It’s down one at number ten for Pharrell Williams with G I R L in his ninth week inside the top 10 (5,054 sales / +4%).

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. If You Wait moves down three places at eleven for London Grammar in its 34th week inside the 250 best-sellers. After just two weeks in the top 10, Jean-Louis Aubert falls eight at number 13 with Aubert Chante Houellebecq – Les Parages Du Vide (4,767 sales / -31%). Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories is down four places at 14 in its 50th week on the chart.

Pixies enter at number 16 with Indie Cindy, it’s their first top 20 album since October 1997 when Death To The Pixies 1987-1991 reached number 14 in October 1997. Une Vie Par Jour is a disappointing new entry at 18 for Olympe (3,963 sales). His eponymous debut LP debuted and peaked at two in July 2013 with 11,402 copies sold. Olympe finished second at last year’s French edition of “The Voice”.

In her second week on the chart, Lisa Angell moves up five places at 28 with Frou-Frou. It’s her second top 30 LP, after Des Mots… (number 30 in April 2013). Bruno Mars jumps from 56 to number 38 with Unorthodox Jukebox in his 73rd week inside the 250 best-sellers, the album peaked at four in August 2013.

9 Dead Alive is new at 42 for Rodrigo Y Gabriela, their 11:11 reached number 20 in September 2009. Sophie-Tith enters at a low number 46 with J’Aime Ça (1,545 sales), her debut LP Premières Rencontres debuted and peaked at seven in July 2013 with around 6,700 copies sold. Sophie-Tith was the winner of the TV show “Nouvelle Star” in 2013.

The 2013 French Singles Chart

“Get Lucky” is the best-selling song in France for 2013 for Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams (360,000 sales). The song was the first (and still only) one to sell more than 30,000 downloads in one week, it even did it twice (38,887 in three days for its first week on the chart, and 33,412 the week after), and spent eight non-consecutive weeks at the top from April to July.

“Blurred Lines” is at two for Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell (292,000 sales), it was Number One for six weeks in June and July and sold 20,555 copies during the week ending 9th June. Stromae has two songs inside the top five : “Papaoutai” at three (217,000), and “Formidable” at five (186,000). They both reached the top.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have two songs inside the ten best-sellers, their chart-topper “Thrift Shop” at number four with 206,000 downloads (featuring Wanz, Number One for eight consecutive weeks from January to March), and “Can’t Hold Us” at eight with 163,000 (featuring Ray Dalton, number three in April and May).

Avicii‘s “Wake Me Up !” is at six with 171,000 sales, the song spent two weeks at the top in August and September. Bruno Mars‘ first single taken from his very successful album Unorthodox Jukebox, “Locked Out Of Heaven” is at number seven (167,000 sales). It’s the best-selling song that didn’t get to Number One, it peaked at three in March.

Three acts own two songs inside the top ten, and Maître Gims is the third one. At nine, “J’Me Tire” spent four weeks at Number One in March and April (161,000 sales), and you can find “Bella” at number ten (159,000 sales).

2013 was another great year for Rihanna, “Stay” (featuring Mikky Ekko) is at eleven (139,000 sales), and her chart-topper from 2012 “Diamonds” is at 19 (116,000). Another song from 2012 is inside the top 20, at 12 with Adele‘s “Skyfall” (135,000 sales).

It was not a very successful year for both acts in the albums chart, but “Scream & Shout” is the 13th best-selling song in 2013 for will.i.am featuring Britney Spears (135,000 sales), the song was Number One for one week in January. At number 14, you can find a song which refused to die : Asaf Avidan & The Mojos‘ “One Day / Reckoning Song” spent its first week in the top 10 in September 2012 and was still there in March !  Its peak position (number two) was only reached in February.

The 2012 X Factor UK winner James Arthur is at a very good number 15 with “Impossible” (128,000 sales). The first 2013 chart-topper, PSY‘s “Gangnam Style” is at 16.

“Just Give Me A Reason” is at number 17 for P!nk featuring Nate Ruess (121,000 sales), it was in the ten best-sellers for nine weeks and peaked at four in March and April. Number two in April, Alex Hepburn‘s “Under” is at 18 for 2013 (117,000 sales). “Watch Out For This” is at number 20 for Major Lazer featuring Busy Signal, The Flexican & FS Green (112,000 sales), the song reached number four in June.

The 2013 French Albums Chart

Stromae‘s Racine Carrée has spent a great 17 weeks at Number One, and is the best-selling album in France in 2013 with 1,159,320 sales. Since 2001, only three albums had sold more than one million copies in a calendar year : in 2002 with Patrick Bruel‘s Entre Deux (1,118,800), the soundtrack from Les Choristes in 2004 (1,058,000), and Renaud with Boucan D’Enfer in 2002 (1,034,169). In 2011, Adele‘s 21 was very close with 995,618 copies sold.

They had the biggest one-week-sales in May (195,013), Daft Punk are at number two with Random Access Memories (509,209 sales), the album was at the top for three consecutive weeks in May and June. That LP was never Number One, but it was inside the top 30 for its 32 weeks : Maître Gims sold 497,513 copies of Subliminal.

It’s not surprising to find Les Enfoirés in the top five, at four with La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés which spent five weeks at Number One in March and April (421,200 sales). Only peaking at four in August but number five in 2013, Bruno MarsUnorthodox Jukebox has spent the whole year inside the top 30 (419,459 sales).

In 2013 Zaz has confirmed the success of her eponymous debut album, 390,005 copies of Recto Verso have been sold. It’s not 2007 anymore, when Mon Paradis had sold 713,916 copies, but Christophe Maé‘s Je Veux Du Bonheur sold a robust 388,325 copies. The album Génération Goldman is at number eight with 291,517 sales, the second volume is at eleven.

Florent Pagny only released Vieillir Avec Toi in November, but it’s already at number nine with 279,374 copies sold. The musical Robin Des Bois sold around 279,000 copies and is at number ten. Tal had a great 2013, she owns two albums inside the top 25 : at 13 with A L’Infini (214,661 sales), and at 21 with Le Droit De Rêver (143,849 sales).

These albums are not in this year’s top 10, but were very successful : We Love Disney (208,748 sales in four weeks), Les StentorsUne Histoire De France (181,192), Vincent Niclo with Luis (142,485), Odysseus by Luc Arbogast (138,680), Keen’V with Ange Ou Démon (123,123), and Thérèse / Vivre D’Amour (107,579), among others.

Some established acts have shown that they can still sell albums : Pascal Obispo‘s best-of Millésimes sold 164,139 copies, and his new studio LP Le Grand Amour more than 125,000 in four weeks. In this category, you can also find Depeche Mode with Delta Machine (127,813), David Bowie‘s The Next Day (126,047 / number two in March), Texas with The Conversation (88,807), Les Chansons De L’Innocence Retrouvée by Etienne Daho (82,527), and Placebo with Loud Like Love (57,945).

Other established acts struggled in 2013 : Justin Timberlake (The 20/20 Experience), and will.i.am (#willpower) sold only 50,000 copies this year. Lady Gaga‘s ARTPOP was inside the ten best-sellers for just one week (peaking at three), and only 48,820 copies were sold in seven weeks. Only three weeks in the top 50, Sting‘s The Last Ship sold 28,243 copies. Paul McCartney‘s New has not reached the 30,000, and even with the big hit “Blurred Lines”, Robin Thicke has not sold more than 26,000 copies of the album of the same name. Britney Jean is Britney Spears‘ first studio LP not to have reached the top 20 (peaking at number 22), the album sold 22,839 copies in four weeks. Will 2014 be better for her ?
