  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!
