France Album Sales: Muse

Drones Era

Giving their status of biggest foreign band in France, debuting at #1 with their 2015 seventh album Drones was safe. It did face two of the biggest local rap acts with Jul and Nekfeu but topped both of them with a huge 78,000 copies sold in its debut week.

Unlike their previous two albums no single really turned into a proper hit, thus the album sold mostly thanks to the band status rather than thanks to their new songs. It closed the year with 192,000 copies sold and an estimated 220,000 units shipped.

  1. Hello!
    Great and very interesting article! But you don’t say that a copy of the album Drones is offered with a concert ticket. If you already have your copy of the album you can give your code to get an album to whoever you want or offer it, that means that a lot of people don’t (or didn’t) have to buy it. You can get as many albums as concert tickets. The sales would be certainly higher otherwise. I personally recently gave one of my codes to a friend who wanted to buy it.
    Anyway the Drones World Tour is very (very!) successful. The six shows in Paris were all sold out. The band deserve it. They are amazingly talented!
