Are the French really that open to English language artist? I thought France is a really tough market to break into. But seems like they are very open indeed.

Hi MJD! Love your updates on the best selling albums in France.

I want to ask whether there are new addition to the list of million selling albums in France. One example is Adele’s 25 album. Is it close to the million threshold? Other albums i remember close to that mark are AC/DC Highway to Hell, a couple of Sade albums etc. Have they surpassed 1 million copies in France?

Looking forward for your next project!

You’re doing a good job. I love reading this stuff.

But, I’n curious when IT comes to Crime of the century. how many albums was sold in France last year?
Crime entered back catalogue top-100 at least 12 times.
