The Space Jam soundtrack slam-dunked its way to the top of the Recording Industry Association of America's league as the best-selling album of the year to date with more than 4 million copies sold. Space Jam, which passed the quadruple-platinum mark last month, also contains R. Kelly's platinum single "I Believe I Can Fly" and Monica's gold single "For You I Will." The soundtrack was one of 123 releases to go multiplatinum in the first half of 1997, down from 140 during the same period last year. Platinum album certifications, on the other hand, were up by 20 to 93 overall.
