Shaggy Shags Post-Holiday Glee
As the smoke clears around yet another mega-monster, boffo holiday sales season, bleary-eyed music weasels are now surveying who's survived, who's thrived and who's going to carry that holiday glee well into the first quarter.

A quick gander at our building sales chart (hit the "sales" icon, you cyber-clod) reveals that MCA's Shaggy is leading the post-holiday pack convincingly. The Shag-man's packing two smash singles (including the current #1), which kinda suggests he'll be hanging around the Top Five for a while.

Meanwhile, in the hip-hop world, Snoop Dogg remains in the Top Five, while Outkast is surging once again and Xzibit proves incredibly durable.

Top 40 add action this week swirls around new singles from Backstreet Boys, Vertical Horizon and Baha Men as radio programmers across the country spend hours learning how to add a "1" when referring to the current year.
