Louane‘s Chambre 12 still rules the French albums chart for the third non-consecutive week (17,918 sales / -30%).

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%).

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.

Week Ending 5th April 2015 / Albums Chart

Louane‘s Chambre 12 climbs one place to spend a second week at the top of the French albums chart in its fifth week inside the top 10 (25,577 sales / +25%). The LP has sold 159,529 copies so far. After three consecutive weeks at Number One, Les Enfoirés are down to two with Sur La Route Des Enfoirés in their fourth week on the chart (24,100 sales / -33%).

Reason gives Selah Sue her second top 10 album in France as it’s this week’s highest new entry at number three with 17,016 copies sold. Her self-titled LP peaked at nine in April 2012. There is another debut inside the top five as Kaaris opens at four with Le Bruit De Mon Ame (13,600 sales). It’s the rapper’s second top five LP, his Or Noir reached number three in November 2013.

In its 30th week inside the ten best-sellers, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous album moves down two places at five (11,700 sales / +4%). Chaleur Humaine slips two at number six for Christine And The Queens in its 15th week in the top 10 (11,500 sales / +7%). It’s also down two places at seven for Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 33rd week inside the top 10 (8,000 sales / +19%). The compilation NRJ Spring 2015 is a non-mover at number eight in its second week on the chart (6,900 sales / +25%).

In his 38th week inside the 250 best-sellers, Sam Smith has finally managed to enter the top 10 as In The Lonely Hour climbs three places at nine (6,800 sales / +55%). Soprano‘s Cosmopolitanie falls three at number ten in its fifth week in the top 10.

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After seven consecutive weeks inside the ten best-sellers, the soundtrack to the movie Fifty Shades Of Grey moves down five places at eleven. Calogero also falls five at number 15 with Les Feux D’Artifice in his 33rd week on the chart. Last week’s new entry at nine, the tribute album to Pierre Bachelet, Nous L’Avons Tant Aimé is down to number 22.

It’s not their third top 10 LP in France, but Endless Forms Most Beautiful jumps from 148 to number twelve for Nightwish as there was a physical release last week (6,000 sales). Once was number nine in June 2004, and Dark Passion Play peaked at six in October 2007. Julie Zenatti enters at 13 with Blanc (5,100 sales). It was close from being her highest-charting album, Comme Vous… reached number twelve in November 2004. Her last studio LP Plus De Diva had only peaked at 30 in March 2010.

Fenomeno is new at number 14 for Lartiste (4,900 sales). In his third week on the chart, Mark Knopfler is back up three places at 16 with Tracker. The Day Is My Enemy gives The Prodigy their third top 20 album in France, as it debuts at number 17 (4,300 sales). Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned was also at 17 in August 2004, and The Fat Of The Land peaked at number two in July 1997 (behind the slightly different Romanza by Andrea Bocelli).

I Muvrini‘s Invicta opens at 18. Their Gioia reached number six in March 2010. As there was a show about their long careers on French TV last week, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy climb a massive 29 places at 21 in their 19th week inside the top 250.

French dance DJ / producer Madeon has a new entry at number 29 with Adventure (3,000 sales). Another tribute LP, but for a living artist : Joyeux Anniversaire M’sieur Dutronc opens at 30. Love Me Tender is new at number 37 for Vigon Bamy Jay (2,500 sales). Les Soul Men debuted and peaked at seven in April 2013. Erick Bamy sadly passed away on 27th November 2014, aged 64.

Week Ending 29th March 2015 / Albums Chart

There is no surprise as Les Enfoirés spend a third consecutive week at Number One on the French albums chart with Sur La Route Des Enfoirés (35,975 sales / -59%). The LP has sold 218,355 copies in 16 days, we can compare that with the 334,668 La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés had sold in 2013. Last year Bon Anniversaire Les Enfoirés had sold 240,628 copies.

Louane‘s Chambre 12 is a non-mover at two in its fourth week inside the top 10 (20,404 sales / -9%). The album has sold 133,952 copies so far. Another contestant from the TV show “The Voice” (he won last year), Kendji Girac stays at number three with his eponymous LP in his 29th week inside the ten best-sellers (11,269 sales / -20%). Like last week, we have a static top four as Christine And The Queens is always at four with Chaleur Humaine in her 14th week in the top 10 (10,700 sales / -13%).

In his 32nd week inside the top 10, Black M moves back up three places at five with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (6,700 sales). The soundtrack to the movie Cinquante Nuances De Grey climbs one at number six in its seventh week inside the ten best-selling LPs (6,700 sales / -12%).

Soprano‘s Cosmopolitanie spends a fourth week in the top 10, as it jumps from eleven to number seven (6,200 sales / +7%). The album debuted and peaked at two last October. The compilation NRJ Spring 2015 is this week’s highest new entry at eight with 5,500 copies sold. The tribute LP to Pierre Bachelet, Nous L’Avons Tant Aimé is new at number nine (4,957 sales). Pierre Bachelet passed away on 15th February 2005. Calogero is back inside the top 10, as Les Feux D’Artifice is back up four places at ten in its 32nd week on the chart (4,500 sales).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Last week’s new entry at five, Eléor is down to number eleven for Dominque A (4,400 sales / -63%). Another tribute LP, this one to Jean Ferrat named Des Airs De Liberté falls five places at 14 in its fourth week inside the top 250. In its second week on the chart, Mark Knopfler‘s Tracker moves down 13 at number 19 (2,900 sales / -63%). It’s down eleven places at 21 for Björk with Vulnicura in her sixth week inside the 250 best-sellers.

In its 37th (!) week on the chart, Sam Smith‘s In The Lonely Hour finally gets its highest-charting position as it climbs eight at number twelve (4,400 sales / +22%). Will it enter the top 10 next week ? Place your bets. Fréro Delavega‘s self-titled LP is up three places at 13 in its 36th week in the top 250. The soundtrack to La Reine Des Neiges (Frozen) jumps from 28 to number 15 in its 69th week on the chart.

Toto XIV moves up a massive 106 places at 17 for Toto in its second week inside the top 250 (3,703 sales). It’s their first top 20 album in France since 1999 when Mindfields peaked at number six in March. Madonna‘s Rebel Heart falls five at number 23 (2,638 sales / -33%), the LP has sold 31,905 copies in its four weeks on the chart. In the same amount of time, her last two studio albums Hard Candy (in April and May 2008) and MDNA (in April 2012) had sold 109,835 (CDs only, downloads were not included at that time) and 65,376 copies respectively.

In his sixth week inside the 250 best-sellers, Pierre Bachelet is up 23 places at 30 with 10 Ans De Bachelet Pour Toujours. Conte De Tess III gives Falcko his first top 40 album, as it opens at number 35. His Conte De Tess II reached number 60 in March 2013.

Have a great week !
