      Where can you found certifications ?

      Two websites :

      --> SNEP. Notes : Certifications for 1994-2004. It's the official French site but it contain many, many mistakes and in most many omissions.

      --> Charts In France. Notes : Certifications for 1973-2004. It's not the official site, it's two guys who had make up for give a best information source that the sad SNEP website. This database contain an enormous part of French certifications : All certifications for 1973-1996 & 2001-2004 & the major part of certifications of 1997-2000. Normally it no contain mistakes.

        Her one of them (the first) :

        At the end of the link, you see "9622" who signify that it's the Top of the 22nd week of 1996. In this way, you can found the charts who interest you easily.

        All number ones albums/singles since 1985 are here : http://www.infodisc.fr/N1CD_V80.php

        And what about chart runs ?

        This site give many of them (actually 380 chart runs for 1996-2005) : http://fanofmusic.free.fr/Site-Chart...oursAlbum1.htm
        It contain chart runs, but certification, year end position and total sales estimate too.

        So, how many sold a #1 ? A #10 ? A #50 ?

        1 / Albums.
        Number 1 position :
        Highest fisrt week (album) in History for a local artist : Johnny Hallyday with "A la vie, à la mort" who sold 305.634 copies in it's first week, the 09 November, 2002.

        Others...
        Les Enfoirés - La Foire aux Enfoirés : 160.723 (22/02/2003)
        Francis Cabrel - Les Beaux Dégâts : 145.000 (22/05/2005).
        Mylène Farmer - Avant Que l'Ombre : 136.318 (09/04/2005).
        Celine Dion - Une Fille & 4 Types : 123.596 (09/04/2005).

        Highest fisrt week (album) in History for a foreign artist : Michael Jackson with "Invincible" who sold over 166.000 copies in it's first week, the 03 November, 2001.

        Others...
        U2 - How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb: 80.000 (27/11/2004)
        Madonna - American Life : 48.682 (26/04/2003).
        Muse - Absolution : 36.000 (27/09/2003).


        But in a 'normal' week, sales of a #1 in France go from 20.000 to 40.000.

        A Top 5 ?
        Since many weeks Moby, #2 in album charts, sold around 20.000 copies by week. The #3 sold around 15.000 and Mariah Carey in #4 sold 11.627copies 2 weeks ago.
        It's a poor time for sales, they are a little higher in the rest of the year but stay between 10.000 and 30.000 copies sold by week for a Top 5.

        And...
        Top 5>10 = Between 5.000 and 15.000
        Top 11>20 = Between 4.000 and 10.000
        Top 21>50 = Between 2.000 and 8.000
        Top 51>100 = Between 1.500 and 4.000
        Top 101>200 = Between 700 and 2.000

        2 / Singles.
        A #1 can sold more in France than in UK, 3 weeks ago Ilona (who is #1 since 6 weeks) sold 73.623 copies in a week (sales of others weeks are unknow).

        Generally, all top 10 sold over 10.000 copies.

        A #20 = Around 5.000 copies.
        A #50 = Around 2.000 copies.
        A #100 = Around 300 copies.

          French Informations, Part IV : Year End Charts.

          SNEP website give all year end charts since 1994, but many position are unknow -(others mistakes in their website). SNEP don't give sales in their year end charts.

          Nevertheless, year end charts since 1997 with sales are here (in the middle of the page) : http://fanofmusic.free.fr/Site-Charts.htm
          Notes : They are officials year end charts but estimate sales with certifications, global sales, top 10 total sales, and chart runs. Sales are reliable.

But no one of their studios albums have certifications (total certification of 2.5m only) and no one reliable number is know too.

                      Wonderful thread! By the way, can I have Mariah's certifications before 1994? I know that "Mariah Carey" was Gold and I believe some of her singles were certified at least Silver or they got close to that...

                      If you have more of her stats, please tell me!

                      btw, this 445k figure for Rainbow, is official? I never tought it had passed 400k :-?

                        Sorry but "Mariah Carey" receive any certification. No one single/album of Mariah Carey receive certification before 94.
                        You have all his certifications here : http://www.chartsinfrance.net/chiffres-artiste-199.htm
                        Her first success in France are Music Box singles : Without You #9 of 1994, Hero #21 and Endloss Love #69 of 1994/#97 of 1995. Music Box hit #1 in album charts with 42 weeks in the top 10.

                        Concerning to 445.000 figure for Rainbow, it is not a "official" number but you can take it in account like one of them. Rainbow is charted #25 of 1999 and #67 of 2000. In Fan of Music website you can look year end charts with estimate sales, estimation do with official numbers give by SNEP (global sales, certifications etc..). You can have more confidence in those numbers that in certifications of SNEP website !
                        Only one example : Charmbracelet go Gold at the end of 2003, her sales are around 250.000, over 200k month and month before her certification at 100k...

                                            I Didn't found the 2x Gold certification for "MTV Unplugged" at the SNEP website Also, it's weird that Universal France reported that her album was certified Gold a few weeks after the release date, and then the website shows the end of 2003, weird

                                            Also, for her singles, I tought that maybe "I'll be there" was silve, cuz that one was #16, or "Vision of love" wich was #25.

                                            Don't you think it's kinda too hight that "Emotions" sold 150k and "Mariah Carey" only 100k, since "Mariah Carey" had a better chart positions than "Emotions", her second album?

                                            And one more thing (sorry to bother you ) do you have any idea of the sales of Jewel, Vanessa-Mae and The Cardigans in France? they didn't had much success I guess also, Björk's first 3 releases (Debut, Post and Telegram), I never found anything about them

                                              I used to think myself is it too bother to say "thank you" in this thread, as it seems like a retards to your useful information. But I decided to write here, "Well done, and impressive work!" You have me well educated about France music sales. Remember one year ago, there's no topics about France music sales all whole the internet, and I lucky got helped from local france music fan, he sent me those Gold & Platinum certifications before 1994, and I was surprised, and done quickly the statistics for artists and already posted in "Chart Forum Refugees" and no one seemed to treated them as a "source" and said "fake information", and now I can find soul-mate here and also in "Chartsinfrance".

                                                Hi, MJDangerous, seems like you know something about "Music Box", do you have chart run of "Music Box" and all other Mariah Carey's chart run before 1996?
                                                And, if possible, post Whitney Houston's chart run, too.
                                                Thanks in advance.
