THE CHARTS

ALWAYS ROOM FOR J. LO

Remember the old days when, if artists wanted to put out a new album, they actually recorded a new album? The trend seems to be otherwise, with Jennifer Lopez’s J to Tha L-O! The Remixes having debuted at No. 1 just a week after a revised version of a Mary J. Blige album hit the top 10. This week, J. Lo’s reruns set slipped to No. 3 on sales of 134,000. That allowed A. Ja–a.k.a. country star Alan Jackson–to retake the top spot, with another 184,000 sold of Drive. By now, the “Where Were You…” singer should be able to afford a full-time political adviser to keep him up on the differences between Iran and Iraq. As for those chart bumps for Enrique and Usher: It was Valentine’s Day week.
