French Charts Update

Long time since we had one of these! (Been too busy wallowing in Swedish music of late) :-)
We previously mentioned the battle between former Le Roi Soleil stars Emmanuel Moire and Christophe Mae. It still looks as if Christophe has won the chart war as he reached no. 1 recently in the singles chart with "On S'Attache". As ever, not too much going on in the French top 40, with only dance act Pakito's "Are U Ready" and the Nouvelle Star single as new entries this week.
Other recent number ones: "Balance-Toi" by Tony Parker. Yes, that Tony Parker as in Eva Longoria's Tony Parker! Also the latest French release by Celine Dion (zzz).
Now to the album charts and guess who is at no.1? Celine Dion....
Following his recent tragic death, Gregory Lemarchal's "Olympia 2006" is again selling well. Still in the top 10 are Christophe Willem's very good "Inventaire" and a new entry from Bob Sinclar with "Sounds of Freedom". Shy'm's debut album is a high climber but not doing so well is Calogero, whose "Pomme C" (which has not been received too well by critics) is only at no. 30. The title track is due to be released as the follow-up to "Saut de L'Ange" - I would have preferred "Melodies En Sous-Sol" or "Suis-Je Assez Clair" as they are my favourite tracks.
