This week of May 13, the back catalog de Nekfeu, PNL or even Damso recorded colossal sales. Even better than some more recent releases.
Yes, it is May 13, 2022 and PNL could claim a place on the sales podium of the week. ‘Cause over these last seven days, Two brothers of PNL sold 6,535 copies. The opus, published three years earlier, obviously benefits from the effect boosted by the tour of the Corbeil duo, which is a hit across France.

NLP takes advantage of the tour effect
And this week, the third place of the sales of the week is occupied by Ninho and JEFE, which recorded 5,244 sales, less than PNL’s third album. It’s not the only dated project to crush the scores. In the legend de PNL is also benefiting from the renewed topicality of the group, with 3,735 counter sales. Inactive since 2019, the two brothers are particularly popular with listeners.

On the side of other artists, Nekfeu, Damso or even Ninho, again, it is the old projects that are a hit. Fire of Nekfeu, for example, recorded 2,447 sales over the past week: this is more than The wandering stars (2,161 sales). The same applies to Ipseitywhich compiles 2,291 sales, more than QALF infinity (2.122). Their extraordinary longevity testifies to the timeless nature of their projects.

Finally, it should be noted that these albums do not appear among the top ten places of the top weekly albums awarded by Snep, even though they could claim to do so. The answer: three years after their publication, the projects join the back catalog of an artist, and are therefore excluded from the top albums which concern “new releases”. A section that includes old successes, such as Homework Daft Punk, which recorded 3,060 sales over the past week.
