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 12th April 2015 / Albums Chart

Louane‘s Chambre 12 still rules the French albums chart for the third non-consecutive week (17,918 sales / -30%). The LP has now sold a very good total of 177,447 copies in its six weeks on the chart (all of them inside the top two). There is no change also at two for Les Enfoirés with Sur La Route Des Enfoirés in their fifth week inside the ten best-sellers (9,494 sales / -61%). 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.

In its 31st week in the top 10, Kendji Girac‘s self-titled LP is back up two places at three (7,929 sales / -32%). Christine And The Queens also climbs two at number four with Chaleur Humaine in her 16th week inside the top 10 (7,500 sales / -35%).

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).

The soundtrack to the movie Furious 7 climbs 63 at number 21 in its second week inside the 250 best-sellers (2,300 sales). A former Number One, Gradur‘s L’Homme Au Bob is back up ten places at 23 in its seventh week on the chart. It’s up nine at number 25 for Sia with 1000 Forms Of Fear in her 40th week in the top 250.

Je Trouve Pas Le Sommeil jumps from 41 to number 26 for Jul in its 18th week on the chart. The double live album 20 Ans ! enters at 44 for Les Ogres De Barback. Their last studio LP Vous M’Emmerdez ! was number 17 in March 2014.

Have a great 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 !

The 2014 French Singles Chart

Like Stromae in the albums chart, Pharrell Williams has the best-selling song for the second consecutive year ! In 2013 he was the featured artist on both Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines”. In 2014 his “Happy” broke the record for the longest reign in the 30-year-old history of the French singles chart, indeed the song ruled for 22 non-consecutive weeks (18 of them in 2014) ! With 344,000 sales, “Happy” is the best-seller by far.

“Prayer In C (Robin Schulz Remix)” is a great runner-up though as it was Number One for 15 weeks for Lilly Wood & The Prick And Robin Schulz (207,900 sales). With Sia‘s “Chandelier”, we have another chart-breaking record, it now owns the longest gap between two separate reigns at the top : 16 weeks ! “Chandelier” was at the top first during the week ending 6th July, then it was back at Number One for two weeks in November (177,800 sales).

Indila‘s “Dernière Danse” was unlucky to stay nine non-consecutive weeks at two behind Pharrell Williams“Happy” (from January to March) but it’s a solid number four for the year with 147,300 sales. “Stolen Dance” was actually the song which dethroned “Happy” of the top spot and sold 134,000 copies for Milky Chance.

Black M was Number One for four weeks in June with “Sur Ma Route” and is at six with 116,100 sales. London Grammar‘s “Wasting My Young Years” was a surprise hit in February as the song became really big when it was sung by contestants of the TV show “The Voice” (100,000 sales).

Coldplay is at eight for 2014 with “A Sky Full Of Stars” (96,800 sales), it’s now the band’s highest-charting song in France (it peaked at three in August). “Waves” by Mr. Probz is number nine (92,600 sales). Thanks to the Flume Remix, “You & Me” sold 91,800 copies for Disclosure featuring Eliza Doolittle.

“Rather Be” is at eleven for Clean Bandit featuring Jess Glynne (90,800 sales). John Legend‘s “All Of Me” ranks as the 12th best-seller in 2014 with 89,200 copies sold. “Stay High (Habits Remix)” was Tove Lo‘s version (featuring Hippie Sabotage) which sold the most (in comparison with the original / 88,600 sales).

Surprising hits in 2014 have been Cris Cab‘s “Liar Liar” (81,600 sales), “Sirens Call” by Cats On Trees (74,500), Julien Doré‘s “Paris-Seychelles” (57,000), and Calogero‘s return to form with “Un Jour Au Mauvais Endroit” (55,000 sales).
