The posthumous album of Johnny Hallyday passes the million

A new record for the French giant of popular music. Three weeks after its release, the posthumous album & # 39; My Country & # 39; s Love & # 39; Johnny Hallyday crossed the million mark, his record label Warner Music France said on Saturday and confirmed a BFMTV announcement. .

The exact figures will be released on Monday, the record company said.

The 51st album of the singer had already broken a sales record by becoming a diamond disk in three days (more than 500,000 copies sold). At the end of the first day of marketing, the album had already reached the extraordinary bar of 300,000 physical sales. After a week a new record was set.

The greatest success of Johnny?

In view of these performances, the record could be the biggest commercial success of Johnny Hallyday, who died last December at the age of 74, and broke the record of the album Blood for Blood, which he recorded with his son David in 1999, that sold more than 2 million copies.

A fortiori opens the pre-Christmas period, traditionally the most glamorous of the year for the sector (40% of sales).
