POP LP CHART : Debbie Gibson Continues Her Reign

Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press

Teen-queen Debbie Gibson is officially queen of the Billboard pop charts. Her "Electric Youth" is the No. 1 pop album and her single, "Lost in Your Eyes," is still the top pop single. Tesla's album, "The Great Radio Controversy," continues its rapid rise, bounding to No. 18 in just a month. Vanessa Williams' "The Right Stuff" album took a mighty leap--from No. 80 to No. 55. Other fast-rising albums: Enya's "Watermark" (No. 31) and Skid Row's "Skid Row" (No. 41).

* It turns out that some fans are becoming addicted to the Cowboy Junkies, whose album jumped from No. 48 to No. 30.
