The 2014 French Albums Chart

It’s amazing to notice that Stromae‘s Racine Carrée is the best-selling LP in France for the second year in a row ! The album has sold 680,233 copies. Two albums (Stromae and Daft Punk) had sold over 500,000 copies in 2013, we have three one year later, as this year’s winner of the TV show “The Voice” Kendji Girac is at number two with his eponymous album (548,914 sales) and Indila is at three with Mini World (543,590 sales).

2014 has been a great year for Johnny Hallyday and Calogero, the former has sold 430,462 copies of his Rester Vivant, and Calogero‘s Les Feux D’Artifice is at number five with 373,869 copies sold. There are two members of Sexion D’Assaut inside the top 10 : at six, we find Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (371,044 sales), and Maître Gims is number ten with his 2013 LP Subliminal (287,190 sales). The latter was the third best-seller in 2013 with 497,513 copies sold.

In 2013 La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés had sold 421,200 copies, Les Enfoirés‘ annual LP Bon Anniversaire Les Enfoirés “only” made 316,335 sales one year later. With only five weeks on the chart, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy‘s self-titled album is already at eight with 300,340 sales. Florent Pagny‘s Vieillir Avec Toi was number nine in 2013, it’s still at nine for 2014 with 294,720 copies sold.

They were not far from the top 10 : AC/DC‘s Rock Or Bust (284,197 sales), the 2013 released Random Access Memories by Daft Punk (254,320), Coldplay with Ghost Stories (247,106), La Bande A Renaud (242,115 / the second volume sold 97,758 copies).

It has been a very good year also for Zaz, her Paris sold 219,016 copies and Recto Verso another 132,854. Pink Floyd and Pharrell Williams both sold over 200,000 copies, 217,170 for The Endless River, and 203,597 for Pharrell WilliamsG I R L.

It’s not bad for Michael Jackson, his Xscape sold 129,796 in 2014, and for U2‘s Songs Of Innocence which made 128,991 sales even if it was given for free on iTunes for weeks before its physical release. It’s more disappointing for Yannick Noah with his Combats Ordinaires (113,802 sales), Bénabar‘s Inspiré De Faits Réels (57,699), and A Coup De Rêves only sold 30,304 copies for Ben L’Oncle Soul. Cheek To Cheek was not a big seller in 2014 for Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga (29,815 copies).

Week Ending 7th December 2014 / Albums Chart

Rock Or Bust gives AC/DC their second Number One album in France as it opens at the top with an impressive 91,802 first-week sales. Black Ice was Number One for one week in October 2008. In his third week inside the top 10, Johnny Hallyday is a non-mover at two with Rester Vivant (53,667 sales / -1%). The LP has sold 239,933 copies so far.

Last week’s Number One, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy‘s self-titled album is down to three (50,671 sales / -20%). It has sold 114,370 copies in its two weeks on the chart. There is no change at number four for Kendji Girac‘s eponymous LP in its 13th week inside the ten best-sellers (43,354 sales / +67%). The album has sold a great 325,462 copies so far.

The compilation NRJ Music Awards 2014 is new at five (30,500 sales). The ceremony will take place on Saturday. In his 16th week in the top 10, Black M climbs one place at six with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (26,000 sales / +31%). Pink Floyd‘s The Endless River slips one at number seven in its fourth week inside the top 10 (25,200 sales / +27%).

It’s up one place at eight for Calogero with Les Feux D’Artifice in his 16th week inside the ten best-selling LPs (24,000 sales / +41%). Zaz falls four at number nine with Paris in her fourth week in the top 10 (23,900 sales / +9%). Black City Tour opens at ten for Indochine (23,300 sales). Their last live album Putain De Stade reached number two in January 2011 during a less busy period of year.

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. They all are new entries from last week. David Guetta‘s Listen moves down eight places at eleven (23,100 sales / -31%). Shy’m falls ten at number 18 with Solitaire (13,200 sales / -33%). Stratégie De L’Inespoir is down 18 places at 28 for Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine.

Garou enters at twelve with It’s Magic ! (21,705 sales). The new LP is his eighth top 20 album in France. His last studio LP Au Milieu De Ma Vie debuted and peaked at number five in November 2013 with 19,779 copies sold. In its fifth week on the chart, We Love Disney 2 is back up six places at 13.

Christophe Willem gets his fourth top 20 album as Paraît-Il is a new entry at number 17 (13,249 sales). He got two Number One LPs, with Inventaire (for five weeks from April to June 2007) and Caféine (for two weeks in May and June 2009). La Bande A Renaud 2 moves back up seven places at 20 in its sixth week inside the top 250.

Nolwenn Leroy debuts at number 26 with O Tour De L’Eau (9,100 sales). It’s her second live LP, Histoires Naturelles Tour peaked at 25 in October 2007. Fréro Delavega‘s self-titled album is back up eight places at 31 in its 20th week on the chart, it spent one week at the top in July.

Né Quelque Part is a disappointing new entry at number 43 for Tryo (5,008 sales). Like Christophe Willem, they got two Number One albums, with Ce Que L’On Sème (for one week in September 2008) and Ladilafé (for one week in September 2012). They both debuted with big numbers : 48,760 CDs sold for the former, and 22,247 sales for Ladilafé.

Have a great seven days !

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 !
