The Frozen soundtrack has landed a 10th week at number one on the U.S. album chart. Over 133,000 copies were sold in the past week, taking the album's tally past the two million mark. The soundtrack, which features 2014's Best Song Oscar winner Let It Go by Idina Menzel, is now one of just 11 albums to have spent at least 10 weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 since the new chart era began in 1991. Only four of those 11 albums have been soundtracks: Frozen, The Bodyguard, Titanic and The Lion King, which also spent 10 weeks at number one. Pharrell Williams' G I R L rebounds seven spots to two and 5 Seconds of Summer's She Looks So Perfect EP slips to three on the new countdown. MercyMe score the chart's highest debut at four with Welcome to the New, and rockers Black Label Society round out the new top five at five with Catacombs of the Black Vatican. Meanwhile, on the Hot 100 singles chart, Williams scores an eighth week at number one with Happy, while John Legend's All of Me and Katy Perry's Dark Horse both claim a fourth week at numbers two and three, respectively.
