It also reached number 15 in November.

As the video was released last week (and with lots of talk about it in France), “Toute La Vie” moves up a massive 99 places at 18 for Les Enfoirés in its fourth week on the chart (1,800 sales / +350%). “Attention Au Départ” was their last top 20 hit, it peaked at number five in March 2013.

Rihanna gets this week’s highest new entry at 22 with “Towards The Sun” (1,541 sales). The song is taken from the soundtrack to the movie Home. In its fifth week inside the 200 best-sellers, “Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)” climbs eleven at number 25 for OMI.

Maroon 5‘s “Sugar” also moves up five at number 34 in its seventh week in the top 200. “On S’Fait Du Mal” gives Black M his tenth solo top 40 hit, as it jumps from 43 to number 35 in its 16th week on the chart.

“Intoxicated” debuts at 41 for Martin Solveig & GTA. It’s the first top 50 hit for Martin Solveig since 2011 when “Ready 2Go” (featuring Kele) was number 20 in June. Brigitte‘s “A Bouche Que Veux-Tu” is back up eight places at 45 in its 27th week inside the top 200. As the sang was used during the battles on the TV show “The Voice” last Saturday, “Eblouie Par La Nuit” re-enters at number 46 for Zaz. It peaked at 13 in September 2014.

Have a very nice week !

Week Ending 11th January 2015 / Albums Chart

Kendji Girac‘s eponymous LP still rules the French albums chart for a ninth non-consecutive week (17,433 sales / -32%). The album has now sold a great total of 581,605 copies in its 18 weeks on the chart (all of them inside the top five). There is no change also at number two for Black M‘s Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in its 21st week inside the ten best-sellers (10,200 sales / -35%). We have a static top three as Calogero is a non-mover at three with Les Feux D’Artifice in his 21st week in the top 10 (9,060 sales / -35%).

The compilation NRJ Hits 2015 gets its peak position as it climbs one at number four in its second week inside the top 10 (7,500 sales / -33%). AC/DC‘s Rock Or Bust is up one place too, at five in its sixth week inside the ten best-selling albums (6,805 sales / -39%). There is another compilation in the top 10 as NRJ Music Awards 2014 slips two at number six in its sixth week on the chart (6,665 sales / -51%).

Paris jumps from nine to number seven for Zaz in its eighth week in the top 10 (6,352 sales / -32%). Jul is back inside the top 10 as Je Trouve Pas Le Sommeil moves up six places at eight in its fifth week on the chart (5,944 sales / -7%). Chaleur Humaine climbs one at number nine for Christine And The Queens in its fourth week inside the ten best-sellers (5,656 sales / -33%). It’s down three places at ten for Johnny Hallyday with Rester Vivant (5,385 sales / -48%). The LP has sold 440,757 copies in its eight weeks in the top 10.

One album drops out of the top 10 this week. After six weeks inside the ten best-selling LPs, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy‘s self-titled album falls four places at twelve. It spent one week at the top in November.

In his fifth week on the chart, Vincent Niclo moves back up five at number eleven with Ce Que Je Suis (4,716 sales). It’s a very good week for Amaury Vassili, his Amaury Vassili Chante Mike Brant jumps from 34 to number 13 in its 11th week inside the top 250. It opened at eight in November.

In its sixth week on the chart, Paraît-Il is up a massive 19 places at 22 for Christophe Willem (2,258 sales). The album has a second life after the Christmas period as it started quite badly (17-38-46-48). Christophe Willem was Number One with Inventaire (for five weeks from April to June 2007) and Caféine (for two weeks in May and June 2009).

It’s a great week for Zaz : as you can find Recto Verso and Zaz at mid-price, the former climbs ten at number 28 in its 88th week inside the 250 best-sellers, and the latter moves up 25 places at 49 in its 252nd (!) week on the chart. The soundtrack to the movie La Famille Bélier has another good week, as it jumps from 48 to number 37 in its fourth week in the top 250.

Have a very nice week !

The 2014 French Albums Chart

It’s amazing to notice that Stromae‘s Racine Carrée is the best-selling LP in France for the second year in a row ! The album has sold 680,233 copies. Two albums (Stromae and Daft Punk) had sold over 500,000 copies in 2013, we have three one year later, as this year’s winner of the TV show “The Voice” Kendji Girac is at number two with his eponymous album (548,914 sales) and Indila is at three with Mini World (543,590 sales).

2014 has been a great year for Johnny Hallyday and Calogero, the former has sold 430,462 copies of his Rester Vivant, and Calogero‘s Les Feux D’Artifice is at number five with 373,869 copies sold. There are two members of Sexion D’Assaut inside the top 10 : at six, we find Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde (371,044 sales), and Maître Gims is number ten with his 2013 LP Subliminal (287,190 sales). The latter was the third best-seller in 2013 with 497,513 copies sold.

In 2013 La Boîte A Musique Des Enfoirés had sold 421,200 copies, Les Enfoirés‘ annual LP Bon Anniversaire Les Enfoirés “only” made 316,335 sales one year later. With only five weeks on the chart, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy‘s self-titled album is already at eight with 300,340 sales. Florent Pagny‘s Vieillir Avec Toi was number nine in 2013, it’s still at nine for 2014 with 294,720 copies sold.

They were not far from the top 10 : AC/DC‘s Rock Or Bust (284,197 sales), the 2013 released Random Access Memories by Daft Punk (254,320), Coldplay with Ghost Stories (247,106), La Bande A Renaud (242,115 / the second volume sold 97,758 copies).

It has been a very good year also for Zaz, her Paris sold 219,016 copies and Recto Verso another 132,854. Pink Floyd and Pharrell Williams both sold over 200,000 copies, 217,170 for The Endless River, and 203,597 for Pharrell WilliamsG I R L.

It’s not bad for Michael Jackson, his Xscape sold 129,796 in 2014, and for U2‘s Songs Of Innocence which made 128,991 sales even if it was given for free on iTunes for weeks before its physical release. It’s more disappointing for Yannick Noah with his Combats Ordinaires (113,802 sales), Bénabar‘s Inspiré De Faits Réels (57,699), and A Coup De Rêves only sold 30,304 copies for Ben L’Oncle Soul. Cheek To Cheek was not a big seller in 2014 for Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga (29,815 copies).
