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 !

Week Ending 16th June 2013 / Albums Chart

Christophe Maé gets his fifth number one album (out of five releases) as Je Veux Du Bonheur debuts at the top of the chart with 103,680 sales. His last studio album On Trace La Route also entered at number one in the week ending 28th March 2010 with 128,714 CDs sold. So Christophe Maé‘s number one albums were Mon Paradis (for two weeks in December 2007), a live album called Comme A La Maison (for two weeks in October and November 2008), On Trace La Route (for three weeks in March and April 2010), and another live album named On Trace La Route – Le Live (for one week in October 2011).

After three consecutive weeks at the top, Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories is down to number two (36,994 sales / +4%), the album has sold 317,085 copies in its four weeks on the chart. It’s a very good week for Les Stentors, their Une Histoire De France is back up two places at three in its fourth week in the top 10 (25,896 sales / +89%), around 83,500 copies of the album have been sold so far.

There is no change at four for Maître Gims with Subliminal (19,063 sales / -13%) which has sold around 134,600 copies in its four weeks inside the ten best-sellers. In its fifth week in the top 10, Recto Verso moves back up one at number five for Zaz (15,611 sales / +29%), it has sold around 129,600 copies so far.

Johnny Hallyday‘s On Stage is down three places at six (15,420 sales / -35%), 39,096 copies of the live album have been sold in its two weeks on the chart. Jenifer falls five at number seven with Ma Déclaration in her second week in the top 10 (12,338 sales / -55%), but it’s not that bad as her two last albums (Appelle-Moi Jen and L’Amour & Moi) only spent one week inside the ten best-sellers. Ma Déclaration has sold 39,651 copies so far.

As he celebrated his 70th birthday on Saturday with a concert at Paris-Bercy which was broadcasted on French TV channel TF1, Johnny Hallyday is new at eight with a four CD compilation called 70ème Anniversaire (9,645 sales). In its second week in the top 10, the compilation NRJ Hit List 2013 slips two at number nine (8,520 sales / +9%). Unorthodox Jukebox stays at ten for Bruno Mars in its 19th week inside the ten best-sellers (8,209 sales / +21%).

Two albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four weeks in the top 10, Vanessa Paradis is down two places at eleven with Love Songs (6,492 sales / -7%), her last studio album Divinidylle spent twenty weeks inside the ten best-sellers from September 2007 to March 2008. …Like Clockwork is down a massive 19 places at number 27 for Queens Of The Stone Age in its second week on the chart.

In their 12th week in the top 250, Vigon Bamy Jay climb eleven at number twelve with Les Soul Men (6,464 sales / +149%). Niro gets his first top 20 album as Rééducation debuts at 13 (6,413 sales), he reached number 53 with Paraplégique in June 2012. 13 is new at number 15 for Black Sabbath (5,941 sales), Reunion was their last charting album, it peaked at 65 in October 1998.

Joyce Jonathan gets her second top 30 album as Caractère enters at 23 with 3,718 sales. Her debut album Sur Mes Gardes was number 17 in October 2010. More Light is new at number 66 for Primal Scream, it’s their highest charting album in France, Riot City Blues peaked at 74 in June 2006.

Beady Eye debut at a disappointing number 101 with BE, their Different Gear, Still Speeding peaked at 32 in March 2011. But it’s even worse for KT Tunstall, her Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon only enters at number 240, she reached number seven in August 2005 with Eye To The Telescope.

I wrote my first article on 16th June 2012, so my blog is now one year old. Thanks for all your messages, comments and questions, it’s very important for me. It’s incredible for me that people from all parts of the world can be interested in the French charts, so thank you all.

Have a great seven days !

Week Ending 9th June 2013 / Albums Chart

It’s a third consecutive week at the top of the French albums chart for Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories (35,469 sales / -29%), the album has sold 280,091 copies so far.

There is much controversy in France at the moment about this week’s highest new entry. First, the facts : Jenifer debuts at two with her album of France Gall‘s most famous songs called Ma Déclaration with 27,313 sales. Jenifer‘s last album L’Amour & Moi opened and peaked at number three with 18,255 copies sold. Then, the controversy : France Gall didn’t like the fact that Jenifer has not informed her about that album, and Jenifer pretended she had France Gall‘s agreement. Anyway Ma Déclaration is Jenifer‘s fourth top two album, after Jenifer (number two in March and April 2002), Le Passage (number two in May 2004), and Lunatique (number one for one week in November 2007). France Gall‘s own best-of Evidemment is up a massive 88 places at number 41 (1,900 sales).

Johnny Hallyday‘s new live album On Stage is new at three with 23,676 sales. It’s rather disappointing as his last live LP Tour 66 : Stade De France 2009 was at the top for two weeks and opened with around 48,000 CDs sold.

In his third week in the top 10, Maître Gims slips two places at four with Subliminal (22,000 sales / -19%). It’s down two at number five for Les Stentors with Une Histoire De France in their third week inside the ten best-sellers (13,700 sales / -21%).

Recto Verso moves down two places at six for Zaz in its fourth week in the top 10 (12,108 sales / -30%), the album has sold around 113,900 copies so far. In its second week on the chart, the compilation NRJ Hit List 2013 is up a massive 149 places at number seven (7,800 sales).

Queens Of The Stone Age get their second top 10 album as …Like Clockwork enters at eight (7,200 sales), Lullabies To Paralyze peaked at number ten in March 2005, their last album Era Vulgaris was at 22 in June 2007. Vanessa Paradis falls four at number nine with Love Songs (6,980 sales / -36%), the album has sold 94,724 copies in its four weeks in the top 10. Bruno Mars is back up one place at ten with Unorthodox Jukebox which spends its 18th week in the top 10 (6,767 sales / +31%).

Five albums drop out of the top 10 this week. A former number one, Emmanuel Moire‘s Le Chemin falls six at number 13 after five weeks inside the ten best-sellers. In its third week on the chart, the compilation NRJ By Cauet moves down five places at 14. The album Thérèse / Vivre D’Amour is also down five at number 15, it reached number two and spent six weeks in the top 10. Quelques Mots D’Amour falls ten places at 16 for Frank Michael in its seventh week on the chart. After two weeks inside the top 10, The Conversation is down nine at number 17 for Texas.

The French rapper Lacrim gets his highest charting album with Né Pour Mourir which is new at number 12, Faites Entrer Lacrim peaked at 16 in May 2012. In their 11th week in the top 250, Vigon Bamy Jay move back up 17 places at 23 with Les Soul Men (2,600 sales), the album reached number seven in April.

Megadeth enters at 43 with Super Collider, it’s a bit better than the band’s last album Th1rt3en which was number 49 in November 2011. All The Little Lights climbs a massive 86 places at 46 for Passenger in its seventh week on the chart.

Equipe De Nuit debuts at number 47 for L’Institut. Miles Kane enters at 55 with Don’t Forget Who You Are, his Colour Of The Trap peaked at number 38 in May 2011.

The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here is new at 67 for Alice In Chains, it’s lower than Black Gives Way To Blue which was number 46 in October 2009. This week’s number one album in the U.K., Disclosure debuts at 89 with Settle. Sing To The Moon is also new at number 93 for Laura Mvula.

Have a very nice week !

Week Ending 26th May 2013 / Albums Chart

Incredible first week on the albums chart for Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories, the album debuts at the top with 195,013 copies sold ! No album has sold that many since the week ending 12th November 2005 when Johnny Hallyday sold 208,771 CDs of Ma Vérité. We can also notice that the late Grégory Lemarchal had opened with 193,960 CDs sold of his album La Voix D’Un Ange in June 2007 just two months after his death. Random Access Memories sets a new record as it was downloaded 67,535 (!) times, the holder of that record was Booba with Futur in December 2012 with “only” 15,504 downloads. With the new album, Daft Punk get a first chart-topper and a fifth top three album, Discovery (in March 2001) and Alive 2007 (in November 2007) both reached number two, and Homework (in January 1997) and Human After All (in March 2005) peaked at three.

Subliminal is new at number two for Maître Gims with 66,430 sales. As a member of Sexion D’Assaut, he reached the top of the albums chart with L’Apogée which opened with 65,949 copies sold in March 2012, the album stayed in the top 10 for 36 weeks. On Subliminal, you can find the hits “J’Me Tire” (number one on the singles chart for four weeks in March and April) and “Bella” which was at four last week.

It’s a rather good second week in the top 10 for Zaz as her album Recto Verso only slips one place at three (37,779 sales / -15%), it has sold around 84,500 copies so far. Last week’s number one, Vanessa Paradis is down to four with Love Songs (27,927 sales / -43%), the album has sold 76,780 copies in two weeks.

Une Histoire De France debuts at five for Les Stentors with 26,539 sales. They took advantage of the fact it was Mothers Day in France on 26th May. Their Voyage En France spent three weeks at number one in May and June 2012, the album had opened with 31,773 copies sold.

In its fifth week in the top 10, the album Thérèse / Vivre D’Amour slips two places at six (10,400 sales / +38%). With Mothers Day, Frank Michael is back up three at number seven with Quelques Mots D’Amour in his fifth week inside the ten best-sellers (9,600 sales). It’s down three places at eight for Emmanuel Moire‘s Le Chemin in its fourth week in the top 10 (9,200 sales / +28%).

The Conversation is new at nine for Texas (8,944 sales), their last album Red Book also opened (and peaked) at number nine in November 2005. In his 17th week in the top 10, Bruno Mars falls four places at ten with Unorthodox Jukebox (8,692 sales / +30%).

Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After four weeks inside the top 10, Maxime Le Forestier slips two at number eleven with Le Cadeau. Arts Martiens moves down five places at 12 for IAM, the album was at the top of the albums chart four weeks ago. It’s down eleven at number 19 for Hugh Laurie with Didn’t It Rain, the album has only spent three weeks in the top 10 so far, his Let Them Talk was in the ten best-sellers for eight weeks from April to June 2011. In his second week on the chart, Kery James is down a massive 20 places at number 23 with Dernier MC (4,300 sales / -67%).

As the album was only available digitally, it’s a very good week for Fauve, their Blizzard debuts at number 13 with 6,200 sales. Now that you can find a DVD of her concert at Paris-Bercy in a new version of her album Caméléon, Shy’m is back up 87 places at number 14 in her 48th week on the chart (5,664 sales).

Love Lust Faith + Dreams opens at number 16 for Thirty Seconds To Mars (5,600 sales), their last album This Is War only peaked at 96 in December 2009, and A Beautiful Lie reached number 87 in February 2007. The compilation NRJ By Cauet debuts at number 17.

Have a very nice week !
