The Charts

Isn't It Ironic?

July 28, 1996

You would think that after a year, people would have had enough of Alanis Morissette. But the vibrant singer, whose "Jagged Little Pill" has been at or near the top of the pop charts for more than a year, shows no sign of slowing down. The album sold 144,000 copies last week, reclaiming the No. 1 position on The Times' Southern California charts and pushing New York rapper Nas' "It Was Written," the nation's No.1 album, to the No. 2 spot locally. 2pac's "How Do U Want It," with Jodeci members Ki-Ci and Jo-Jo, is the nation's top-selling single.
