That wasn't good news for Whitney Houston, because her "Whitney Houston" LP was bumped out of the top spot--and all the way down to No. 3 --after reigning as champion for 14 weeks. That left her one week shy of tying Men at Work for the longest run at No. 1 by a debut album.
It's unlikely that Houston's LP will be able to move back into the top spot, because the new No. 1 album--Janet Jackson's "Control"--has enough momentum to remain as champ for two or three more weeks. And after that, look for a real head-on-head battle between the supergroup Genesis, whose "Invisible Touch" is now No. 10 in just its second chart week, and their ex-bandmate, Peter Gabriel, whose "So" is now No. 5 in just its fourth chart week.
