“Mazarin” climbs – in Norway

OSLO (UPDATED) - Per's successful concert and TV appearances in Norway seem to have paid off. "Mazarin" re-entered the charts last week and climbs from #23 to #6 this week. The album has spent five weeks on the Norwegian charts. This is the highest position a solo album by Per Gessle has reached in Norway so far. Previously, Marie Fredriksson's greatest hits album, "Äntligen," also reached #6 in the year 2000.

  In Sweden, "Mazarin" is still at #3. The first single, "Här kommer alla känslorna," has climbed back to #6 from #7. At the same time, the second single, "På promenad genom stan," has entered the chart at #20. But that's not all: there's also a cover version of the old Gyllene Tider hit "När vi två blir en" by Miio on the Swedish chart at #5.

  Editor's note: The reason for moving "Mazarin" from #5 to #6 is that the sales of Sting's new album was miscalculated due to the SACD version being counted by itself. When counted as one Sting overtook Per. TEV
