"Les Rois du monde" is a 2000 song performed by Philippe d'Avilla, Damien Sargue and Grégori Baquet. It was the second single from the 2000 French musical Roméo et Juliette, de la Haine à l'Amour, featuring as the fourth track on the album of the same name. Released on July 2000, the single achieved a huge success in France and Belgium, topping the charts for many months.


Lyrics and music

The song was written and the music composed by Gérard Presgurvic.

According to Elia Habib, a specialist of the French charts, the major asset of this song is "its refrain, bewitching choirs chiselled in its words as much as in its melody", compensating for "the tasteless of the performance" and "the clumsiness of some of its verses".[1]

In 2001, "Les Rois du monde" won a NRJ Music Awards in the category 'Francophone song of the year'.

In 2003, the song was covered by Marc Lavoine, MC Solaar, Pierre Palmade and Dany Brillant. It features as sixth track on the album La Foire aux Enfoirés, released on February 24, 2003.[2]

Chart performances

In France, the single debuted at #30 on the French Singles Chart on July 29, 2000, before jumping to #12, then entering the top ten. It climbed to #1 in its fifth week, and there it stayed for 17 not consecutive weeks. The high sales of the single blocked Alizée's most successful single "Moi... Lolita" from the top position for thirteen weeks, which would be later ranked as the third best-selling single of the year. After that, the single of the trio dropped but quite slowly and managed to total 22 weeks in the top ten, 36 weeks in the top 50 and 40 weeks on the chart (Top 100).[3] Certified Diamond disc by the SNEP, the song was sold about 1,410,000 copies and was the 21st best-selling single of all time in France, according to Infodisc website.[4] To date, it is the third song with the most weeks at number one (behind "Mambo n°5 (a Little Bit of...)" and "Belle").

In Belgium (Wallonia), the single went to #27 on the Ultratop 40 Singles Chart, on August 12, 2000. It reached the top ten the week after and became number one two weeks later. It remained at the top for 14 consecutive weeks, and then almost kept on dropping (22 weeks in the top ten and 32 on the chart (Top 40)).[5] As in France,[6] the single was the second best-selling single of the year, behind "Ces Soirées-là", by Yannick, although this song spent less weeks at number-one.[7]

In Switzerland, the single was charted for 23 weeks, from September 24, 2000, to March 25, 2001, peaking at #9 in its fourth week. It appeared for 11 weeks in the top 20.[8]

The song was also released in the Netherlands, but in July 2001. It was briefly ranked on the Dutch Top 40, for four weeks, but remained in the bottom of the chart.[9]

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
