France Best Selling Albums Ever:
All-Time Ranking (2015)

Non English/French language Albums

01 Andrea Bocelli Romanza (1997) : 2 850 000
02 Era Era (1997) : 2 180 000
03 Manu Chao Clandestino (1998) : 1 810 000
04 Manu Chao Proxima Estacion Esperanza (2001) : 1 065 000
05 Laura Pausini E Ritorno (2001) : 1 005 000

It is tough to reach such a milestone with a foreign language album. Out of the five records which did it, three are projects from French artists by both Era and Manu Chao. Remaining albums by Andrea Bocelli and Laura Pausini are both Italian albums. One interesting point is that all those albums got released within’ four years during the all-time peak of the market, proving how nearly impossible it is to sell 1 million of such a release without highly favorable conditions.
