    This one is wrong, the single that spent 19 weeks on top of the French chart was Lou Bega's Mambo N°5.
    It should be 20 weeks, not 19 weeks.

Her two previous studio albums, "Falling Into You" and "Let's Talk About Love," each moved more than 30 million copies around the world and 10.5 million and 9 million units, respectively, in the U.S. A 1998 holiday set, "These Are Special Times," has sold 4 million copies in the U.S., while the 1999 greatest-hits collection "All the Way ... A Decade of Song," which contained seven new songs, has topped sales of 17 million globally.";
