Top 40 appears to be anointing Hollywood’s Jennifer Paige and Def Soul’s Christina Milian as the primary objects of radio love. Also look for solid closeout weeks for Craig David and Enya.

WEEK IN PREVIEW: KICKING
SOME DEBUT!!!

Keys To Grind Out Another #1 Week, While Aaliyah, Foxy And Other Bows Wow
While J’s amazing Alicia Keys is headed for another amazing week at #1, a whole slew of debuts have made retailers happier than George W. Bush in an ozone-depleted atmosphere.

Meanwhile, debuts by Blackground’s Aaliyah, Def Jam/IDJ’s Foxy Brown, Antra/Artemis’s Kurupt and Wildstar/Atlantic’s Craig David are selling faster than Dubya can say, "shortsighted, ethnocentric corporate puppet."

Also continuing to rise faster than emissions from unregulated American industrial behemoths are Island/IDJ’s Sum 41 and Wind-up’s Drowning Pool.

The cultural pollutants at Top 40 appear to be anointing Hollywood’s Jennifer Paige and Def Soul’s Christina Milian as the primary objects of radio love. Also look for solid closeout weeks for Craig David and Enya.

The environmentally concerned anarchists at Post Modern, meanwhile, are laying their solar power on MCA's Live featuring Tricky, DreamWorks' Long Beach Dub Allstars, Hollywood's Butthole Surfers and RCA's Handsome Devil. There's still plenty of love for DreamWorks’ Alien Ant Farm, Virgin’s Gorillaz and the aforementioned Drowning Pool.

Unconcerned with provisions of the Kyoto agreement, our Jamz guys continue to siphon our oxygen while informing us of their format’s love affair with the new Mary J. Blige cut, "Family Affair." The raw waste that is our Mix Show staff continues to blow smoke over P. Diddy’s massive success at the format.

Next week, George W. Bush says that America will continue to be the biggest polluter in the world, as long as it has the most nuclear weapons.

And remember, kids—use that tax refund to buy CDs!
