03 Kids United – Une monde meilleur (496,700)
04 Kids United – Tout le bonheur du monde (382,700)
05 M. Pokora – My Way (363,100)

and later

95 Céline Dion – On ne change pas (39,000)

So, Celine will end as the second best-selling album in France. With the latest week, Renaud will cross 700,000 copies. I hope Celine will end the year with 650,000 copies sold in France :)
Sure I would have been happier if EUS ended #1, but that is already amazing. With her last 2 French releases, she ended up in the top 5 of both year-end charts, after more than 20 years slaying the French charts. That is an achievement! And with 6 Diamond albums she is the female artist with the most (jointly with Mylene Farmer). :D

And what is so nice to see is that the first two spots are for artists with a carreer spanning three decades ! That would be amazing if other countries like the USA, you could get such results. :P :wink:

Adele had the highest certified album with the Diamond certification of 25, while Justin Bieber‘s Purpose was the highest certified Canadian album at Quadruple Platinum. Celine Dion‘s Double Platinum certification for Encore un soir was the highest certification for an album, both international and Canadian, released in 2016. Drake‘s Views, 2 Freres’ Nouse autres, and Michael Buble’s Nobody But Me were the second highest Canadian album certifications, each earning Platinum status.
So basically, she's the top-selling newly released album of 2016 (just waiting for Soundscan to confirm - I think only Drake might have outsold her on Soundscan, possibly).

If that does end up the case, that is quite simply an amazing achievement - a French album!

French Main Sales Albums Chart:
Encore un soir - #2 (#3)
On Ne Change Pas - #163 (#224)

Encore must have sold around 30,000 copies.

So this is the chart-run on the Sales Chart in France:
1-1-1-2-1-1-1-3-8-7-8-10-12-11-7-5-3-2-

18 weeks on the chart so far, including 6 weeks at #1 and 16 weeks inside top 10 :)

Phenomenal chart run - and all of this with very little effort.

It was not. It is 3x Platinum.
SNEP never certified it Diamond.
Only an article on Pure Charts wrote that it was Diamond - but this fact was never oficially confirmed - the article was wrong.

She's really done phenomenal this year - she'll end the year as the best-selling Francophone album of the year worldwide [possibly best-selling foreign language release - need to check] - #2 in France, top 10 in Canada, #1 in Belgium WA, #7 in Switzerland. It's really quite amazing that she still pulls these numbers.

:o

And amazingly it's back to back to her previous success Sans Attendre. Of course the dramatic events put a light on her, but this album and lead single have been stellar simply. :D

Highly deserved. I wished her anglo carreer was similarly on top, but as a French-speaker, I am so happy that she is still that successful in her mother tongue :P :wink:

Hope that Aldo and Sony do not drop the album in 2017 and still try to promote it through the year. It deserves to reach the million mark worldwide.

Let's not overthink things - the woman sold 1.6m copies of her last English album without large scale support from the US - the most of any female act within her generation. I think she's still on the whole very commercially successful because of how large and diverse her fanbase is.
