WOOF! THERE IT IS

Posted on

How do record buyers spell relief after the Christmas-holiday craziness? Apparently, S-N-O-O-P. The gangsta rapper’s incendiary first album, Doggystyle, reclaims the No. 1 spot on the pop chart, overtaking Mariah Carey’s quadruple-platinum Music Box in the process. Meanwhile, a much less controversial R&B act, new jack crooners Jodeci, leaps into the top 10 for the first time in its career, with the help of the hit single ”Cry for You.” The country chart also welcomes a newcomer-23-year-old Texas honky-tonker Clay Walker, whose sleeper debut album enters the top 10 (after nearly five months on the chart) on the heels of his hit ”Live Until I Die.”
