The Frozen soundtrack has continued it's winter chill at the top of the U.S. album charts after scoring a 13th week at number one. The album sold 106,000 copies in America last week and now becomes one of only 39 albums in the history of the Billboard 200 chart to have spent at least 13 weeks at the top. Meanwhile, violinist Lindsey Stirling debuts her second album, Shatter Me, at two, while Ray LaMontagne's Supernova is a new entry at three. On the U.S. singles chart, John Legend has finally ended pal Pharrell Williams' reign at number one after spending six weeks in second place on the Hot 100. His ballad All of Me, which was inspired by his wife Chrissy Teigen, is Legend's first number one and it comes almost 10 years to the day of his first Hot 100 entry in May, 2004. It took 30 weeks to get to the top of the countdown, landing the third-longest climb to number one in the chart's 55-year history. Williams' Happy slips a spot to two after spending 10 weeks on top and Ariande Grande's Problem rockets into the new chart at three, while Australian rapper Iggy Azalea scores her first U.S. top five hit at four and Katy Perry's former number one Dark Horse drops to five.
