France Best Selling Albums Ever:
Update Part 7 (20-1)

#5 – 26,000 UNITS

Céline Dion – D’Eux (1995) : 4,235,000

The best selling album of all-time from one of the most hyped artist of the year was obviously poised to do wonders in this update. From 2011 to 2015, D’Eux charted 24 weeks in the Top 200 Comprehensive Chart. In 2016, it did the same as during those 5 years combined, charting for 24 weeks, plus 4 more in a 2CD box along with D’Elles. Celine Dion gigantic blockbuster also peaked at #32 this year, its highest position since August 1997. Several months after the release of Encore Un Soir, the 1995 cult album is still charted up to this week. Can it keep the train rolling even after the last era starts to fade away?

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!
