'Frozen' Still Rules Billboard 200, 5 Seconds of Summer's EP Debuts at No. 2
The soundtrack of "Frozen (2013)" keeps its position steady at No. 1 on Billboard 200. Nielsen SoundScan reports that the compilation album has just claimed its ninth week atop the chart after selling another 149,000 copies.
The record, which was released back in November, has so far sold 1.9 million copies. Currently on course for its tenth week on the chart's top slot, it may tie "The Lion King" for the longest run at No. 1 by an animated film soundtrack.

Dan + Shay's "Where It All Began" takes the sixth spot on the chart. Supported by hit single "19 You + Me", the country duo's first LP has sold nearly 29,000. Nickel Creek's "A Dotted Line" is at No. 7 with 27,000.
