A new record for the French giant of popular music. Three weeks after its release, Johnny Hallyday's 'My Country's Love' posthumous album has passed the million-mark mark, his Warner Music France record label said on Saturday, confirming a BFMTV announcement. .
The exact figures will be released Monday, said the record company.
The singer's 51st album had already broken a sales record by becoming a diamond disc (more than 500,000 copies sold) in three days. At the end of its first day of marketing, the album had already reached the extraordinary bar of the 300,000 physical sales. After a week, a new record was set.
The biggest success of Johnny?
In view of these performances, the record could become the biggest commercial success of Johnny Hallyday, who died last December at the age of 74, and break the record held by the album Blood for Blood, which he recorded with his son David in 1999, which sold more than 2 million copies.
A fortiori while the pre-Christmas period is opening, traditionally the most glamorous of the year for the sector (40% of the turnover).
