IN STORES DECEMBER 3
CHARLI BALTIMORE The Diary (You Think You Know) (Murder Inc./Def Jam) On this, her debut, Biggie’s onetime flame promises she’s ”more complex than dinner and a movie.” Hopefully, she doesn’t mean McDonald’s and The Santa Clause 2.
JOSH GROBAN Josh Groban in Concert (Warner Bros./Reprise) The boyish wonder’s Great Performances special also features Angie Stone and Andrea Corr.
MARIAH CAREY Charmbracelet (MonarC/Island/Def Jam) She was feeling ”Emotions” for a while there, but Carey has since made it ”Through the Rain” with her first album since the Glitter soundtrack.
VARIOUS ARTISTS More Music From 8 Mile (Interscope) Slim Shady’s savvy label wants you to lose yourself in a second disc of tracks — by OutKast and Method Man, among others — from the hit film.
THE WALLFLOWERS Wallflowers they may be, but the band will be the life of the party from Chicago (Nov. 23) to Boston (Dec. 2), before bringing down the horse in D.C. on Dec. 7.
NELLY The ”Hot in Herre” rapper takes his show cross-country. No, there are no gigs in Nellyville, but the St. Louis star will hit Atlanta (Nov. 24), Boise, Idaho (Dec. 5), and New York City (Dec. 12).
THE VINES This summer the Australian rockers wailed ”I wanna get free.” Now they get their chance by touring to Yank towns such as Providence (Nov. 22), Grand Rapids, Mich. (Dec. 4), and — last call — Minneapolis (Dec. 6).
