In Brief

*** Various artists, "The Nutty Professor" soundtrack, Def Jam.

June 09, 1996|Cheo Hodari Coker

Russell Simmons--Def Jam CEO and "Nutty Professor" movie producer--has assembled such a powerhouse of talent for the soundtrack, star Eddie Murphy will be lucky if the film fares this well at the box office. Case's thumping "Touch Me, Tease Me," Warren G's low-rumbling "Throw Your Hands in the Air" and Richie Rich's smooth "Pillow" are only a few of the featured tracks destined for heavy car system rotation in neighborhoods from Compton to Crooklyn.
