Abstract (Document Summary)

Chalk up a great chart week for George Michael, who now has his first No. 1 single and Top 5 album-both titled "Faith"-since splitting from Wham! a year ago.

Michael came close last August, when his controversial "I Want Your Sex" got as high as No. 2 despite being banned by a significant number of radio stations. He had no such problems with "Faith," which took only eight weeks to zip to the top of the charts (about a month faster than the "average" No. 1).

The rapid rise of the "Faith" single was bad news for Belinda Carlisle, whose "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" was bumped to No. 2 after just one week in the top spot. Though "Heaven" still is No. 1 in record sales, it lost the overall title due to "Faith's" edge in radio airplay.
