Shaggy-delic

Posted on

He’s the shaggy D.A. — dancehall artist, that is — and he’d be top dog if not for those pesky fleas known as the Beatles. Shaggy’s Hotshot held on to the No. 2 spot for a second week, with the Brooklyn-born reggae lover SoundScanning 191,000 copies, up from 186,000 last week. In their ninth week at the top, the Beatles suffered only a negligible slip, from 269,000 to 260,000. This sleepy sales frame found no new albums debuting in the top 40, much less the top 10. But, speaking of dance halls, the soundtrack to hit teen flick Save the Last Dance faced the music to the tune of a balletic 30-spot jump, all the way to No. 11.
