France Album Sales: Celine Dion

Celine Dion (1992) Era

The promotion of Dion Chante Plamondon was extended so much that we may forget the star in the making released an eponymous English album, follow up to 1990 Unison, in March 1992.

The set hadn’t one but two US Top 10 singles with Beauty And The Beast and If You Asked Me To. It became Celine Dion first album to break the million mark within’ its promotional campaign, reaching it by July after its March release.

In France, as Ziggy had yet to break the main audience for the Canadian singer, the album failed to chart just like all  its singles, selling a mere 30,000 units.

Top 3 Most Streamed Tracks on Spotify
  1. Beauty And The Beast – 15,893,000
  2. Where Does My Heart Beat Now – 2,410,000
  3. If You Asked Me To – 2,246,000

  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!
