Week Ending 2nd March 2014 / Albums Chart

Was last week the last time we had Stromae‘s Racine Carrée at the top of the French albums chart ? Les Enfoirés will release their yearly live LP on 15th March, and this week we have a new entry at Number One ! And the winner is… Indila with her debut album Mini World with impressive sales figures (40,368 sales). Her “Dernière Danse” is for the seventh non-consecutive week at two on the singles chart.

After 25 non-consecutive weeks at the top, Stromae‘s Racine Carrée is down to number two (25,067 sales / -17%). Mini World is only the fifth album to have beaten Racine Carrée during a week, it was at two behind Génération Goldman Vol. 2 in the week ending 1st September, and number four behind three new entries (Florent Pagny‘s Vieillir Avec Toi, Eminem‘s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, and Céline Dion‘s Loved Me Back To Life) in the week ending 10th November. Racine Carrée has sold 1,466,369 copies in its 28 weeks on the chart.

As you can still find the LP at €9.99, Random Access Memories slips one place at three for Daft Punk in its 19th week inside the ten best-sellers (17,955 sales / +6%). It’s also down one at number four for Maître Gims with Subliminal in his 30th week in the top 10 (16,276 sales / +4%).

In its 25th week on the chart, London Grammar‘s If You Wait reaches the top 10 as it jumps from twelve to number six (9,700 sales / +116%).

Six albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Nos Fiançailles, France / Portugal moves down eight places at twelve for Tony Carreira in its third week on the chart (7,600 sales / -16%). The compilation NRJ 200% Hits 2014 also falls eight at number 13 in its fourth week inside the top 250. After just one week inside the ten best-sellers, Cats On Trees‘ self-titled album is down five places at 14. Recto Verso falls eight at number 15 for Zaz in its 43rd week on the chart.

Week Ending 16th February 2014 / Albums Chart

There were the French music awards (Victoires de la Musique) last Friday, and of course the big winner was Stromae with three trophies (best male artist, best album for Racine Carrée, and best video for “Formidable”), so it’s not surprising at all to see him spending a 24th non-consecutive week at the top of the albums chart with Racine Carrée. But we can still be amazed by the LP’s sales figures, indeed Racine Carrée sold another 52,411 copies last week (+70%) ! In its 26 weeks on the chart (all of them inside the top four !), the album has now sold 1,411,212 copies.

Helped by the Grammy effect and the fact you can find it at mid-price, Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories moves back up one place at number two in its 17th week inside the ten best-sellers (23,035 sales / +25%). Maître Gims climbs one at three with Subliminal in his 28th week in the top 10 (21,700 sales / +36%). In its second week on the chart, the compilation NRJ 200% Hits 2014 is up one place at four. Last week’s new entry at number two, FAUVE is down to five with Vieux Frères – Partie 1 (11,000 sales / -63%).

Tony Carreira gets this week’s highest new entry at number six with Nos Fiançailles, France / Portugal (10,100 sales). In this album, he duets with artists such as Natasha St-Pier, Anggun, Vincent Niclo, and Michel Sardou among others. Nos Fiançailles, France / Portugal is Tony Carreira‘s first top 10 LP, he peaked at number 116 in June 2010 with Reste – Best Of. In his 15th week inside the top 10, Florent Pagny slips one place at seven with Vieillir Avec Toi (9,100 sales / +40%).

Le Prince is Mister You‘s fourth top 10 album, as it debuts at eight (9,000 sales). Mec De Rue reached number nine in October 2010, Dans Ma Grotte was number three in November 2011, and MDR 2 peaked at ten in November 2012. They both sang at the Victoires de la Musique : Julien Doré‘s Løve jumps from 25 to number nine in its 16th week in the top 250 (6,400 sales), and Zaz climbs ten places at ten with Recto Verso in her 41st week on the chart (6,300 sales / +91%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. The compilation Fun Remix Club Winter 2014 is down three at number eleven in its second week inside the 250 best-sellers. Stromae‘s Cheese also falls three places at 13 in its 102nd week on the chart (5,700 sales / +12%). The Frozen soundtrack (La Reine Des Neiges) moves down seven at number 14 after three weeks in the top 10 (5,100 sales / -14%). Last week’s new entry at nine, MIKA‘s 3-CD box set (Life In Cartoon Motion / The Boy Who Knew Too Much / The Origin Of Love) is down to number 19.

After the French music awards, Cats On Trees‘ eponymous LP gets its highest-charting position as it moves up 22 places at twelve in its 17th week on the chart. The album Forever Gentlemen climbs six at number 15 in its 17th week inside the top 250. The compilation Nova Tunes 2.9 debuts at number 20.

In his 11th week inside the 250 best-sellers, Pascal Obispo is back up eight places at 23 with Le Grand Amour, the album debuted and peaked at number three in December. Lorde‘s Pure Heroine jumps from 42 to number 25 in its 20th week on the chart. A former Number One (for three consecutive weeks in June and July), Christophe Maé climbs 20 places at 26 with Je Veux Du Bonheur. He performed at the Victoires de la Musique.

These artists also took advantage of the French music awards : Les Chansons De L’Innocence Retrouvée moves up 24 at number 29 for Etienne Daho in its 13th week in the top 250. As she won the award for the best female artist, Vanessa Paradis climbs 81 places at 32 with Love Songs in her 40th week on the chart (2,500 sales). Ibrahim Maalouf is up a massive 138 places at number 37 with Illusions in his 15th week inside the 250 best-sellers (2,300 sales), he won the award for best world music album.

Have a very good week !
