France Album Sales: Celine Dion

Loved Me Back To Life (2013) Era

Only one year after rebounding in great fashion with her last French album, Celine Dion had the difficult target to reproduce the feat with her new November 2013 English album, her first such record in six years, Loved Me Back to Life.

The lead single of the same name never went higher than #32 yet and made the target even more difficult. In fact, the album started at only #3 but with a solid 30,000 sales. Until the end of the year, Loved Me Back to Life never dropped below #12, performing much better than Taking Chances that went down to #30 in the same timespan. During the first months of 2014 this new record quickly left charts just like its predecessor did, but the healthier results during the key holiday season led the album to 218,000 units sold by the end of 2014, easily better than the 133,000 sales of Taking Chances by the end of 2008.

In May 2014, Une Autre Fois Live 2013 was released as a result of shows that took place after Sans Attendre. It sold over 18,500 copies in its first week to debut at #2, only blocked by Coldplay new album released on the same week. Holding quite decently during several months, the set sold 64,000 units by the end of the year.

  1. I have been waiting this article so long. Thank you very much!I cant wait to read France Album Sales: Barbra Streisand, it must be a big project.

  2. Article très intéressant. Je pense que ce site prend tout son sens avec ce genre d’artistes à la carrière très étendue et variée. Vivement un article sur Nana Mouskouri !

  3. Wow! Céline numbers in France are unrivalled! I can’t believe she outsold Madonna for such a large margin! France is the crown of her empire.

    1. Actually, Canada is the crown,😂or it used to be as she’s got 6 diamonds (million albums) and the former album with the most copies sold in the debut week (Let’s Talk About Love, but now replaced by 25) there.
      Plus I’ve got a question. I thought D’eux has sold more than 4.5m copies thus far. And figures for 1 Fille & 4 Types and On ne change pas seem to be a bit bigger than I previously imagined. I had thought Sans Attendre has outsold 1 Fille & 4 Types!!!

      1. Hi Oye,

        Those figures you post about France seem to refer to old figures claimed by infodisc website which is one more highly inaccurate site. Chart runs are OK on it but sales estimates are very amateur.

  4. Congratulations for your amazing job! But could you add now sales numbers for Encore Un Soir et update those for Sans Attendre as it has made appearances quite often in the comprehensive charts for 15 months now? Thanks!
