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 !

Week Ending 12th October 2014 / Albums Chart

Even if the album was given for free on iTunes, Songs Of Innocence is U2‘s eighth Number One LP as it debuts at the top of the French albums chart with 21,771 copies sold in 3 days (it was released last Friday). The band’s other chart-toppers were The Joshua Tree (for 20 consecutive weeks from April to August 1987), Achtung Baby (for two weeks in March 1992), Zooropa (for one week in July 1993), Pop (for one week in March 1997), All That You Can’t Leave Behind (for one week in November 2000), How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (for one week in November 2004) and No Line On The Horizon (for one week in March 2009). The latter had opened with 63,109 CDs sold.

After four consecutive weeks at the top, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous album is down to number two (18,014 sales / -13%). It has sold 154,164 copies in its five weeks on the chart. Les Stentors slip one place at three with Rendez-Vous Au Cinéma in their second week on the chart (11,239 sales / +9%). There is no change at number four for Calogero with Les Feux D’Artifice in his eighth week inside the top 10 (7,498 sales / -10%). Leonard Cohen‘s Popular Problems moves down two places at five in its third week inside the ten best-sellers (6,701 sales / -26%).

Pascal Obispo‘s new live album Millésimes (Live 2013-14) is new at number six (6,441 sales). The compilation NRJ Hit Music Only 2014 Vol. 2 debuts at seven (5,781 sales). Ma2x‘s eponymous debut album enters at number eight (5,751 sales), Maxence Sproule (his real name) is a 18-year-old French rapper.

Mireille Mathieu gets her highest-charting album this week as Une Vie D’Amour is new at 14 (4,000 sales). Her 2005 eponymous LP peaked at 16 in October 2005. Let’s not forget that the first French albums chart was published only in January 1985.

In his 11th week on the chart, Keen’V moves back up six places at 18 with Saltimbanque. Amen jumps from 41 to number 19 for Les Prêtres in its 27th week inside the 250 best-sellers. Isabelle Boulay climbs eleven places at 23 with Merci Serge Reggiani in her 21st 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 !

The 2013 French Albums Chart

Stromae‘s Racine Carrée has spent a great 17 weeks at Number One, and is the best-selling album in France in 2013 with 1,159,320 sales. Since 2001, only three albums had sold more than one million copies in a calendar year : in 2002 with Patrick Bruel‘s Entre Deux (1,118,800), the soundtrack from Les Choristes in 2004 (1,058,000), and Renaud with Boucan D’Enfer in 2002 (1,034,169). In 2011, Adele‘s 21 was very close with 995,618 copies sold.

They had the biggest one-week-sales in May (195,013), Daft Punk are at number two with Random Access Memories (509,209 sales), the album was at the top for three consecutive weeks in May and June. That LP was never Number One, but it was inside the top 30 for its 32 weeks : Maître Gims sold 497,513 copies of Subliminal.

It’s not surprising to find Les Enfoirés in the top five, at four with La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés which spent five weeks at Number One in March and April (421,200 sales). Only peaking at four in August but number five in 2013, Bruno MarsUnorthodox Jukebox has spent the whole year inside the top 30 (419,459 sales).

In 2013 Zaz has confirmed the success of her eponymous debut album, 390,005 copies of Recto Verso have been sold. It’s not 2007 anymore, when Mon Paradis had sold 713,916 copies, but Christophe Maé‘s Je Veux Du Bonheur sold a robust 388,325 copies. The album Génération Goldman is at number eight with 291,517 sales, the second volume is at eleven.

Florent Pagny only released Vieillir Avec Toi in November, but it’s already at number nine with 279,374 copies sold. The musical Robin Des Bois sold around 279,000 copies and is at number ten. Tal had a great 2013, she owns two albums inside the top 25 : at 13 with A L’Infini (214,661 sales), and at 21 with Le Droit De Rêver (143,849 sales).

These albums are not in this year’s top 10, but were very successful : We Love Disney (208,748 sales in four weeks), Les StentorsUne Histoire De France (181,192), Vincent Niclo with Luis (142,485), Odysseus by Luc Arbogast (138,680), Keen’V with Ange Ou Démon (123,123), and Thérèse / Vivre D’Amour (107,579), among others.

Some established acts have shown that they can still sell albums : Pascal Obispo‘s best-of Millésimes sold 164,139 copies, and his new studio LP Le Grand Amour more than 125,000 in four weeks. In this category, you can also find Depeche Mode with Delta Machine (127,813), David Bowie‘s The Next Day (126,047 / number two in March), Texas with The Conversation (88,807), Les Chansons De L’Innocence Retrouvée by Etienne Daho (82,527), and Placebo with Loud Like Love (57,945).

Other established acts struggled in 2013 : Justin Timberlake (The 20/20 Experience), and will.i.am (#willpower) sold only 50,000 copies this year. Lady Gaga‘s ARTPOP was inside the ten best-sellers for just one week (peaking at three), and only 48,820 copies were sold in seven weeks. Only three weeks in the top 50, Sting‘s The Last Ship sold 28,243 copies. Paul McCartney‘s New has not reached the 30,000, and even with the big hit “Blurred Lines”, Robin Thicke has not sold more than 26,000 copies of the album of the same name. Britney Jean is Britney Spears‘ first studio LP not to have reached the top 20 (peaking at number 22), the album sold 22,839 copies in four weeks. Will 2014 be better for her ?
