Pop Album Chart : 'Funky Divas' Has Supreme Debut

En Vogue--those funky divas--are proving that they're not just a vocal group geared to R&B; audiences. "Funky Divas," the new album by the group dubbed the Supremes of the '90s, debuted at a lofty No. 8 on the Billboard magazine album chart, indicating that fans in the pop mainstream are buying it too. The half-year-old album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Blood Sugar Sex Magik," continues to be hot, climbing five notches to No. 11. On the pop singles chart, Vanessa Williams' "Save the Best for Last" is No. 1 for the fourth straight week, while Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" single, the big hit from the "Wayne's World" movie, rocketed from No. 24 to No. 10--undoubtedly on its way to the top.

* Yanni, the Greek keyboardist-composer, is showing that Enya isn't the only New Age star to make it big on the pop chart. In its third week on the chart, his "Dare to Dream" album is No. 37.
