Better than Céline Dion or Daft Punk
The young man becomes the third singer of the decade to reach this level of sales, after Adele’s album 21 (1.7 million copies) and Stromae’s Album Racine carrée (1.4 million copies). With these figures, it is better than other planetary success as Without waiting for Céline Dion in 2012 or Random Access Memories by Daft Punk in 2013.
Among the biggest hits of this album are, notably the singles Color Gitano, Elle m’a aimé, Cool et surtout Andalouse, stayed 57 weeks in the Top 100.
