Frozen Soundtrack Tops Album Sales Chart
February 26, 2014

Disney's unstoppable soundtrack to the animated film Frozen returns to the top of the sales chart this week with 89,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, collecting its fifth non-consecutive week at #1. Frozen has now earned the most weeks at #1 for a soundtrack since Titanic racked up 16 weeks at the top in 1998. Meanwhile, Eric Church's The Outsiders is #2 in its second week with 74,000, and Country singer Cole Swindell scores a #3 debut with his self-titled debut album, shifting 63,000 units. The Now 49 compilation is #4 with 45,000, Beyonce's self-titled album is #5 with 35,000, and Lorde's Pure Heroine is #6 with 30,000. Katy Perry's Prism earns the #7 slot this week with another 26,000 sold, and Bruno Mars' Unorthodox Jukebox is #8 with 23,000. Rock band Issues scores a #9 debut with its self-titled album, entering the chart with 22,000 sold. Finally, Toni Braxton & Babyface close out the Top 10 with Love, Marriage & Divorce, shifting another 21,000.

Over on the Digital Songs chart, Pharrell Williams' "Happy" continues to rule at #1 for a second week, selling 402,000 downloads, Billboard reports. It's the biggest sales week for a song outside of the Christmas season since last September, when Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" flew to #1 with 477,000 downloads. Pharrell is set to perform "Happy" this Sunday night at the Academy Awards, where the tune is nominated for Best Original Song.
