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 !

Week Ending 19th October 2014 / Albums Chart

With a full week of sales (the LP was released on Friday 10th), U2‘s Songs Of Innocence spends a second consecutive week at the top of the French albums chart (29,157 sales / +34%). It has sold 50,928 copies in 10 days. There is no logic in this world : the “basic” version of the album was given for free on iTunes, but it’s the first U2 LP to spend two weeks at Number One in France since… Achtung Baby (in March and April 1992).

This week’s highest new entry goes to Soprano at two with Cosmopolitanie (26,315 sales). As a solo artist, he was at the top for two consecutive weeks in October 2010 with La Colombe. He got another chart-topper with Les Cités D’Or as a member of Psy 4 De La Rime (for one week in May 2008). Kendji Girac slips one place at three with his eponymous album (16,383 sales / -9%), the LP has sold 170,547 copies in its six weeks on the chart.

The French singles chart (the famous “Top 50”) will be 30 on 4th November, and some singers (such as Yannick Noah, Lara Fabian, Grégoire, Zaz, …) have decided to give their own versions of some hits from the 80s and 90s to celebrate it. You can find them in the compilation Les Enfants Du Top 50 which debuts at number four (12,451 sales).

Le Dernier Romantique gives Dany Brillant his fourth top five album as it enters at five with 10,660 sales. Jazz… A La Nouvelle Orléans was number five in April 2004, Histoire D’Un Amour peaked at three in May 2007, and Puerto Rico reached number two in October 2009. In their third week inside the ten best-sellers, Les Stentors move down three places at six with Rendez-Vous Au Cinéma (9,300 sales / -17%).

Jean-Louis Murat is new at number seven with Babel (7,184 sales). It’s his first top 10 LP since August 2003 when Lilith debuted and peaked at seven. Mireille Mathieu gets her first top 10 album as Une Vie D’Amour climbs six places at eight in its second week on the chart (6,846 sales / +71%). Calogero‘s Les Feux D’Artifice falls five at number nine in its ninth week in the top 10 (6,141 sales / -18%). It’s also down five places at ten for Leonard Cohen with Popular Problems in his fourth week inside the ten best-sellers (4,700 sales / -30%).

Five albums drop out of the top 10 this week. In its 20th week on the chart, Chaleur Humaine slips one at number eleven for Christine And The Queens. The compilation NRJ Hit Music Only 2014 Vol. 2 is down six places at 13 in its second week inside the top 20. After three weeks in the top 10, Lenny Kravitz falls eight at number 17 with Strut. Pascal Obispo‘s Millésimes (Live 2013-14) falls a massive 22 places at 28 in its second week on the chart. Last week’s new entry at eight, Ma2x is down to number 29 with his eponymous debut album.

St. Petersburg enters at 14 for Cecilia Bartoli. She reached the top 10 with the LP Sacrificium (number eight in October 2009). P!nk‘s new project (with Dallas Green), You+Me debuts at number 37 with Rose Ave. (1,700 sales). Les Wampas Font La Gueule is a disappointing new entry at 53 for Les Wampas. Their last album Les Wampas Sont La Preuve Que Dieu Existe debuted and peaked at number 34 in January 2009. Jessie J enters at a very low number 131 with Sweet Talker (433 sales). Her last LP Alive reached number 104 in October 2013, but Who You Are peaked at 15 in April 2011.

Have a great seven days !
