Week Ending 24th March 2013 / Albums Chart

There is no surprise at the top of the French albums chart as Les Enfoirés spend a second week at number one with La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés (127,292 sales / -10%). In nine days (it was released on 16th March), the album has sold 268,480 copies. The surprise is rather at two where you can find the new entry of Woodkid with The Golden Age (27,234 copies). Woodkid (real name : Yoann Lemoine) has already been on the albums chart with two EPs, Iron (number 110 in April 2011) and Run Boy Run (number 31 in May 2012).

Cyclo is new at three for Zazie (20,471 sales), she had three number one albums, with La Zizanie (for two weeks in October 2001), Totem (for one week in February 2007), and Za7ie (for one week in September 2010). Saez debuts at four with Miami (19,202 sales), it’s his fifth top three album, after Debbie (number two in August 2004), Varsovie – L’Alhambra – Paris (number three in April 2008), J’Accuse (number three in April 2010), and Messina (number two in September 2012).

David Bowie falls three places at five with The Next Day (16,173 sales / -68%), the album has sold 66,421 copies in two weeks. Justin Timberlake enters at a rather lowly number six with The 20/20 Experience (16,067 sales) but it’s not so surprising as Justified reached number 30 in July 2003, and FutureSex / LoveSounds was at five in September 2006.

In his ninth week in the top 10, Bruno Mars slips two at number seven with Unorthodox Jukebox (7,296 sales). It’s down four places at eight for Génération Goldman in its 18th week inside the top 10 (6,400 sales / -16%). Unapologetic falls three at number nine for Rihanna in its tenth week in the top 10 (5,191 sales / -16%). M. Pokora is down seven places at ten with A La Poursuite Du Bonheur Tour – Live A Bercy in his third week inside the ten best-sellers (4,900 sales / -37%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Different Pulses slips three at number 12 for Asaf Avidan after seven weeks in the top 10, the album reached number five in February. Dido falls six places at 13 with Girl Who Got Away in her third week on the chart (4,100 sales), her album Safe Trip Home also spent only two weeks inside the top 10 in November 2008, No Angel was in the ten best-sellers for 35 weeks from February 2001 to February 2002, and Life For Rent for 18 weeks from September 2003 to February 2004. Black City Parade is down seven at number 15 for Indochine after five weeks in the top 10. In its third week on the chart, the compilation NRJ Total Hits 2013 falls six places at number 16.

Youn Sun Nah is up four places at 14 with Lento in her second week in the top 250. In its 10th week on the chart, The Heist reaches its peak position as it climbs 22 at number 19 for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (3,500 sales). Two compilations are new in the top 30, Bernard Lenoir L’Inrockuptible at 21 and W9 Hits 2013 Vol. 2 at number 26.

Christophe debuts at 35 with Paradis Retrouvé, his last album Aimer Ce Que Nous Sommes reached number four in July 2008 and spent five weeks inside the top 10. P!nk‘s The Truth About Love is up 15 places at 44 in its 27th week on the chart, the album entered and peaked at number four in September 2012.

Have a great seven days !

Week Ending 17th March 2013 / Albums Chart

On Friday night, 12,723,000 people watched the annual concert of Les Enfoirés on TF1, so there is no surprise to find them at the top of the albums chart this week. In only two days (the album was released on Saturday), La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés has sold 131,638 CDs and 9,550 downloads for a total of 141,188 copies. It’s impressive but not surprising. In its first week, Le Village Des Enfoirés 2006 had sold 142,131 CDs in April 2006, La Caravane Des Enfoirés 145,313 in March 2007, Les Secrets Des Enfoirés 2008 129,299 in March 2008, Les Enfoirés Font Leur Cinéma 152,196 in March 2009, La Crise De Nerfs 143,011 in March 2010, Dans L’Oeil Des Enfoirés 135,159 copies (by January 2011, downloads were included in the albums chart) in March 2011, and Le Bal Des Enfoirés 2012 137,730 copies in March 2012. In total, La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés is their 14th number one album. Founded by the comedian Coluche in 1985, the Restos Du Coeur can distribute food packages and hot meals to the needy. If you buy one copy, 18 meals can be distributed.

The Next Day is new at number two for David Bowie (50,248 sales), it’s his third top 10 album in the 2000s, Heathen reached number three in June 2002, and Reality was at two in September 2003 behind IAM with Revoir Un Printemps. Last week’s number one, A La Poursuite Du Bonheur Tour – Live A Bercy is down to three for M. Pokora in its second week in the top 10 (7,767 sales / -67%). For the first time in its 17th week on the chart, Génération Goldman is out of the top three as it slips two places at number four (7,609 sales / -30%).

There is no move at five for Bruno Mars with Unorthodox Jukebox in his eighth week in the top 10. Rihanna stays at number six with Unapologetic in her ninth week inside the top 10 (6,167 sales / -13%). In her second week on the chart, Girl Who Got Away falls four places at seven for Dido.

Black City Parade is down four at number eight for Indochine in its fifth week in the top 10. There is no change at nine for Asaf Avidan with Different Pulses in his seventh week inside the top 10. It’s down two at number ten for the compilation NRJ Total Hits 2013 in its second week on the chart.

Two albums drop out of the top 10. After nine weeks in the ten best-sellers, Millésimes falls eight places at 15 for Pascal Obispo. Kavinsky is down seven at number 17 with Outrun in his third week in the top 250.

There are some interesting new entries outside the top ten. Youn Sun Nah gets her highest charting album with Lento which is new at 18. She was at number 38 in October 2010 with Same Girl. Sanseverino enters at 22 with Honky Tonk, he reached number five with two albums, Les Sénégalaises in February 2004, and Exactement in November 2006. The rapper Sadek is new at 29 with Les Frontières Du Réel, La Légende De Johnny Niuuum‘s peak position was number 70 in March 2012. What About Now enters at 46 for Bon Jovi, their last two albums (not counting the Greatest Hits) reached number 39, Lost Highway in June 2007, and The Circle in November 2009. Bon Jovi‘s last top ten album is Bounce which was at number eight in September 2002.

Week Ending 3rd March 2013 / Albums Chart

In its 15th week inside the top three, Génération Goldman is back up one place to spend a fourth week at the top of the French albums chart (12,495 sales), but the big story is the new entry at number two of Kavinsky‘s debut album Outrun (12,041 sales). Kavinsky (his real name : Vincent Belorgey) has already had a top 10 hit single with “Nightcall” which reached number ten on two occasions, in February 2012 and 2013. “Nightcall” is taken from the soundtrack of the movie “Drive”.

After two consecutive weeks at number one, Black City Parade is down to three for Indochine with 11,456 sales, so you can notice it has been a very close battle for the top spot in this week’s albums chart. It’s down one at number four for Pascal Obispo with Millésimes in his eighth week in the top 10 (9,400 sales).

In his 12th week on the chart (and the sixth inside the top 10), Bruno Mars gets his highest position this week as Unorthodox Jukebox climbs five places at number five (7,493 sales / +34%), his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans reached number 13 in July 2011. There is no change at six for Asaf Avidan with Different Pulses in his fifth week in the top 10 (7,400 sales).

The compilation NRJ 200% Hits 2013 falls three places at seven in its fourth week in the top 10. It’s also down three at number eight for another compilation, NRJ Music Awards 2013 in its tenth week inside the top 10.

Roch Voisine‘s duets album Duophonique is up a massive 162 places at number nine in its second week in the top 250 (6,700 sales), it’s his first top 10 album since August 2009 when AmerIIcana was also number nine. Roch Voisine reached number 18 in June and July 2010 with California – Americana III, and number 30 in December 2010 with Confidences. The compilation Piou Piou Dance Party is back in the top 10 as it’s up two places at ten in its fourth week on the chart (6,700 sales).

In its 110th week on the chart, Adele‘s 21 climbs three at number 14 (4,900 sales). Last week’s highest new entry, Push The Sky Away is down 23 places at 30 for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (3,000 sales / -53%).

Thom Yorke’s new project Atoms For Peace is new at number 15 with Amok (4,700 sales). Nu Là-Bas is not the fourth top 20 album in a row for Tété as it enters at number 24 (3,300 sales). Tété reached number 16 in October 2003 with A La Faveur De L’Automne, Le Sacre Des Lemmings Et Autres Contes De La Lisière was at five in October 2006, and Le Premier Clair De L’Aube‘s peak position was number 11 in February 2010. Josh Groban is new at 42 with All That Echoes (2,000 sales) which is his sixth top 50 album, Awake reached number five in January 2007.

Have a great seven days !

Week Ending 17th February 2013 / Albums Chart

“Black City Parade” enters at the top of the French albums chart for Indochine with 75,615 sales. It’s their fourth number one album in the 21st century, after “3.6.3” (for two weeks in January 2004), “Alice & June” (for two weeks in December 2005 and January 2006), and “Hanoi” (for one week in February 2007). Indochine‘s last studio album “La République Des Meteors” entered at two in March 2009 behind Les Enfoirés with bigger sales (82,529 physical copies sold), but opening with 75,615 sales is remarkable for the singer Nicola Sirkis who is the only remaining member of Indochine whose debut album “L’Aventurier” was released in… November 1982.

“Génération Goldman” stays at number two in its 13th week in the top 10 (17,735 sales / +0.2%). In his sixth week in the top 10, “Millésimes” is back up two places at three for Pascal Obispo (12,200 sales / -5%). There is no move at number four for the compilation “NRJ 200% Hits 2013” in its second week on the chart (10,700 sales / -22%). Another compilation, “NRJ Music Awards 2013” falls two at five in its eighth week inside the top 10.

“Places” is up one at number six for Lou Doillon in its ninth week in the top 10 (9,217 sales / +17%). Birdy spends a 14th week in the top 10 as her eponymous debut album is back up four places at seven (8,900 sales / +34%). In his third week in the top 10, Asaf Avidan is up one at number eight with “Different Pulses” (8,000 sales / +18%).

Last week’s number one, La Fouine falls eight places at nine with “Drôle De Parcours” in his second week on the chart (7,358 sales / -75%). Tal‘s “Le Droit De Rêver” is down four at number ten in its 11th week in the top 10 (7,200 sales / -17%).

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After 14 consecutive weeks inside the top 10, Céline Dion slips three places at 11 with “Sans Attendre” (7,200 sales / +2%). The compilation “Piou Piou Dance Party 2013” falls four at 14 in its second week on the chart.

“Holy Fire” is a new entry at number 22 for Foals with 4,674 sales, “Antidotes” was at 84 in March 2008, and “Total Life Forever” reached number 38 in May 2010. Thanks to TV exposure, The Lumineers are up a massive 144 places at number 37 with their eponymous album in their fourth week inside the top 200 (2,400 sales). It’s also a very good week for Serge Lama, his album “La Balade Du Poète” climbs 49 at number 38 in its 11th week on the chart, it reached number 32 in December.

“Temper Temper” is not (for the moment) a third top 50 album for Bullet For My Valentine as it’s new at 51, “Scream Aim Fire” was at number 38 in February 2008, and “Fever” reached number 25 in May 2010. The soundtrack from “Les Misérables” enters at a rather low number 81.

Have a great week !

Week Ending 10th February 2013 / Albums Chart

La Fouine enters at the top spot of the French albums chart with “Drôle De Parcours”, the album sold 19,140 physical copies and 10,579 downloads for a total of 29,719 copies. “Drôle De Parcours” is La Fouine‘s fifth top 10 album and second number one, after “La Fouine vs Laouni” which was at the top during the week ending 20th February 2011.

There is no change at number two for “Génération Goldman” in its 12th week in the top 10 (17,700 sales / -17%). The compilation “NRJ Music Awards 2013” slips two places at three in its seventh week in the top 10 (14,700 sales / -41%). There is another compilation in the top five this week as “NRJ 200% Hits 2013” is new at number four with 13,700 sales.

A former chart-topper (three weeks ago), “Millésimes” is down two at five for Pascal Obispo in its fifth week in the top 10 (12,900 sales / -29%). It’s also down two places at six for Tal with “Le Droit De Rêver” in her 10th week in the top 10 (8,638 sales / -19%).

There were “Les Victoires De La Musique” (The French Music Awards) on Friday 8th, and Lou Doillon took the trophy of the best female solo artist, so her debut album “Places” is back up 27 at number seven in its 23rd week on the chart (7,880 sales). “Places” spends its eighth week in the top 10 and reached number three in September. It’s not the same story for the best male solo artist as Dominique A re-enters at a modest number 109 with “Vers Les Lueurs” (753 sales), the album was number seven in April 2012.

In her 14th week in the top 10, Céline Dion slips two places at eight with “Sans Attendre” (7,068 sales / -11%), the album has sold 638,085 copies so far. Asaf Avidan falls four at number nine with “Different Pulses” in his second week on the chart (6,800 sales / -24%). The compilation “Piou Piou Dance Party 2013” enters at number ten with 6,800 sales.

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After 13 weeks in the top 10, Birdy is down three at 11 with her eponymous debut album (6,630 sales / -3%). Emeli Sandé falls four at number 13 with “Our Version Of Events” after just one week inside the top 10 (5,945 sales / -10%). Adele‘s “21” is down five places at 15 after 88 weeks in the top 10. This week’s big faller is Justin Bieber who is down 32 at number 39 with “Believe Acoustic” in his second week in the top 200 (2,200 sales / -69%).

As they took four trophies at the “Victoires De La Musique”, the four DJs of C2C are back up 23 places at number 12 with “Tetra” in their 23rd week on the chart (5,963 sales). In the week ending 9th September 2012, “Tetra” entered at the top spot, that was also the week when Lou Doillon‘s “Places” was new at three. Shaka Ponk won the live act trophy, and “The Geeks And The Jerkin’ Socks” climbs 11 at number 28 in its 71st week on the chart (3,100 sales).

Have a great week !

Week Ending 3rd February 2013 / Albums Chart

So after the 2013 ceremony of the NRJ Music Awards on 26th January, the compilation “NRJ Music Awards 2013” is logically back at the top spot as it’s up one to spend a fourth week at number one in its sixth week in the top 10 (25,000 sales / +30%). “Génération Goldman” is down to two with 21,200 sales (-20%), the album has sold around 592,120 copies in its eleven weeks on the chart.

Pascal Obispo stays at number three with his best-of album “Millésimes” in his fourth week in the top 10 (18,100 sales / -1%). “Millésimes” has sold around 77,700 copies so far. It’s a new peak position for Tal as “Le Droit De Rêver” is up one at number four in its ninth week in the top 10 (10,664 sales / +28%).

Asaf Avidan gets the highest new entry of the week at number five with “Different Pulses” (8,900 sales). “The Reckoning” gets its best charting position as it climbs four at number 26 for Asaf Avidan & The Mojos in its 17th week on the chart (2,900 sales), so it’s not a bad week at all for him. After 12 consecutive weeks in the top five, Céline Dion slips two places at six with “Sans Attendre” (7,905 sales / -20%), the album has sold 631,017 copies so far.

Justin Bieber has the other new entry inside the top 10, his “Believe Acoustic” enters at seven (7,200 sales). It’s Justin Bieber‘s third top 10 album, “My Worlds” was number four in March 2010, and “Believe” reached number three in June 2012.

It’s up one place at eight for Birdy with her eponymous album in her 13th week in the top 10 (6,863 sales / +40%), the big gain in sales can be explained by her presence in the NRJ Music Awards ceremony. Emeli Sandé was there too, and for the first time “Our Version Of Events” is inside the top 10 as it climbs ten at number nine in its 47th week on the chart (6,598 sales / +82%). Adele‘s “21” is down four places at ten in its 88th week in the top 10 (6,200 sales / -3%).

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After one week in the top 10, the soundtrack of “Django Unchained” slips four at number eleven (6,100 sales / +3%). “O Filles De L’Eau” is also down four places at 14 for Nolwenn Leroy (5,261 sales / +15%), the album spent eight weeks in the top 10 and reached number five in December.

In its 48th week in the top 200, “L’Apogée” is back up two places at 12 for Sexion D’Assaut (5,700 sales / +38%). “Caméléon” is a non-mover at 16 for Shy’m in its 32nd week on the chart (4,961 sales / +21%).

Week Ending 27th January 2013 / Albums Chart

On Saturday 19th January, 6.7 millions of viewers watched “Samedi Soir, On Chante Goldman” on the French TV channel TF1, so there is no surprise to see “Génération Goldman” back at the top of the albums chart for a third week as it climbs two places (26,543 sales / +69%). In its ten weeks in the top three, the album has sold 570,920 copies. It’s also a very good week for Jean-Jacques Goldman‘s own best-of which is up 14 at number 12 in its 71st week on the chart (around 4,300 sales). “Singulier 81/89” was released in 1996.

There is no change at number two for the compilation “NRJ Music Awards 2013” in its fifth week in the top 10 (around 19,300 sales / +20%). After just one week at the top, “Millésimes” is down to three for Pascal Obispo in its third week in the top 10 (around 18,200 sales / +10%).

In her 12th week in the top 10, Céline Dion stays at number four with “Sans Attendre” (9,854 sales / -5%), the album has sold 623,112 copies so far. In its 45th week on the chart, “Le Droit De Rêver” gets its peak position as Tal is up one at number five (8,299 sales / +44%).

Adele slips one place at six with “21” in her 87th week in the top 10 (around 6,400 sales / +7%). In its second week on the chart, the soundtrack of “Django Unchained” climbs 11 places at number seven (around 5,900 sales / +90%).

In its fourth week in the top 10, “Unorthodox Jukebox” is still at number eight for Bruno Mars (around 5,000 sales / +4%). Birdy is back in the top 10 as her eponymous album is up three places at nine in its 39th week on the chart (4,888 sales / +25%). “O Filles De L’Eau” falls three at number ten for Nolwenn Leroy (4,570 sales / -6%), the album has sold 206,448 copies in its nine weeks on the chart.

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After seven weeks in the top 10, Patrick Bruel is down seven places at 17 with “Lequel De Nous”, the album entered at the top in December. “Opéra Rouge” falls 14 at number 23 for Vincent Niclo & Les Choeurs De L’Armée Rouge (around 3,100 sales / -24%).

Jake Bugg enters at number 11 with his eponymous debut album (4,474 sales). Laurent Voulzy is up a massive 19 places at number 21 with “Lys & Love” in his 61st week in the top 200 (around 3,300 sales), the album reached number two in December 2011. “The Reckoning” gets its peak position as Asaf Avidan & The Mojos climb 18 at number 30 in their 16th week on the chart.

Have a great week !

The 2012 French Albums Chart

Like in the United States, Adele‘s “21” is for the second consecutive year the best-selling album in France with around 615,800 sales (thanks to RCGrayson from Charts In France for the estimated sales). “21” was at the top of the albums chart for seven weeks in 2012 from January to March. With only eight weeks on the chart in 2012, Céline Dion is not far behind at number two with “Sans Attendre” (568,609 sales) which ruled the chart for two weeks in November and December.

“L’Apogée” is the third best-seller for 2012 for Sexion D’Assaut with around 556,000 sales. The album was at the top for five weeks from March to June. “Génération Goldman” is at four with 486,738 sales even if it was only released in November. In 2011 “Dans L’Oeil Des Enfoirés” reached number three, Les Enfoirés are number five in 2012 with “Le Bal Des Enfoirés 2012” (around 390,000 sales).

“Jamais Seul” was number 14 in 2011 for Johnny Hallyday, he is number six in 2012 with “L’Attente” (387,049 sales), it was at the top in the week ending 18th November. Lana Del Rey‘s “Born To Die” was number one for two weeks in February and is at seven for 2012 with around 347,200 sales. At number eight you can find Muse with “The 2nd Law” (around 313,800 sales), the album was at the top for three consecutive weeks in October.

Even if it was released in December, Mylène Farmer‘s “Monkey Me” reached number nine for 2012 with 308,560 sales. “A La Poursuite Du Bonheur” is at ten for M. Pokora with around 277,600 sales.

Les Stentors were number one for three non-consecutive weeks in May and June with “Voyage En France”, and are number eleven for 2012 with around 237,600 sales. It was also a great year for Birdy whose eponymous album is at number 12 with 234,600 copies sold. “Le Droit De Rêver” is at 13 for Tal with around 216,300 sales.

Patrick Bruel‘s “Lequel De Nous” is another album which was released late (in November), yet it’s at number 14 with 206,482 sales. “Lequel De Nous” reached the top of the albums chart in the week ending 2nd December. “Bretonne” was number two in 2011 for Nolwenn Leroy, she is at number 15 in 2012 with “O Filles De L’Eau” (182,375 sales).

Shy’m is at 16 with “Caméléon” (around 181,800 sales) which entered the albums chart at the top in the week ending 1st July. Shy’m was number 25 with “Prendre L’Air” in 2011. We can also notice at 18 Vincent Niclo & Les Choeurs De L’Armée Rouge with “Opéra Rouge” (around 160,000 sales), “The Geeks And The Jerkin’ Socks” at number 20 for Shaka Ponk (around 158,000 sales).

Like in 2011 when she was at 10 with “Loud” and at 37 with “Talk That Talk”, Rihanna has two albums in the top 50, “Unapologetic” at number 19 (157,945 sales), and “Talk That Talk” at 49.

2012 was more difficult for Madonna, only at 44 with “MDNA” (around 83,100 sales), or for Mika who is at number 54 with “The Origin Of Love” (around 74,100 sales) even if he entered at the top with 25,702 sales in the week ending 23rd September.
