The "Titanic" soundtrack album's unsinkable success on the 1998 Billboard charts was just the tip of the iceberg. The thousands of songs, CDs and artists that hit Billboard's Pop, Rock, Country, R&B and Adult Contemporary charts in 1998 now appear in Joel Whitburn's 1998 Billboard Music Yearbook -- from Fastball to Master P to Brandy & Monica to Tim McGraw. Billboard's ten major music charts are covered in ten separate artist-by-artist sections which give detailed chart data on every hit. For each entry, you'll find the date of its chart debut, peak position, total weeks on the chart, orginal label and number, and much more. No other book chronicles all of the year's music as deeply. ©1999, 264 pages.
