Pop Album Chart : ‘Boomerang’ Soundtrack Hits the Chart

“Boomerang,” the soundtrack for the romantic comedy starring Eddie Murphy, is off to a fast start. The buzz about it boosted interest in it as it entered the Billboard magazine chart at No. 8. Another hot soundtrack, “Mo’ Money,” produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, jumped from No. 41 to No. 17 in its second week. Many thought Elton John’s “The One” would fall off quickly after entering at No. 31 last week, but it moved up to No. 20. For the third straight week, Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” is the top pop single.

* The first solo album--an EP actually--from a current N.W.A. member (Ice Cube is an ex-member), it premieres at No. 23.
