The soundtrack of the Henry Krieger-Tom Eyen score — released by Music World/Columbia — remains in the top spot in its sixth week on the chart following a jump to No. 1 last week.
Featuring stars Beyoncé Knowles, Anika Noni Rose and Jennifer Hudson as the title trio, the album also stays in the No. 1 position on the Top Soundtracks (where the Deluxe Edition also charts at No. 6) and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts for a second week.
Over on the Top Cast Album chart, the original cast recording of the Broadway musical — featuring Loretta Devine, Jennifer Holliday and Sheryl Lee Ralph — still enjoys its rebirth. Both the Decca Broadway original 1982 release as well as the recent Hip O/Geffen special edition both hit their fourth week on the chart, edging up one spot to No. 5 and 7, respectively.
"Chicago" screenwriter Bill Condon directs and adapts "Dreamgirls" starring Jennifer Hudson as Effie, Beyoncé Knowles as Deena Jones, Anika Noni Rose as Lorrell Robinson, Jamie Foxx as Curtis Taylor Jr., Eddie Murphy as James "Thunder" Early and Danny Glover as Marty.
