This week's charts belong to Mr. Mister, because the L.A.-based group has just scored the year's first "double"--having both the No. 1 single and No. 1 album at the same time.
That feat points up the kind of chart momentum Mr. Mister has had since early December, when the No. 1 success of its "Broken Wings" single started to generate more interest in the band's second album, "Welcome to the Real World," which had stalled in the lower portions of the Top 20. (The group's first album, "I Wear the Face," didn't even make the Top 150.)
But sales of "Real World" really took off when Mr. Mister followed up "Broken Wings" with an even stronger single, "Kyrie," which this week replaced Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know" as the most popular song in America.
