Let’s just pretend for a minute that the “Frozen” soundtrack isn’t going to just dominate the Billboard charts until the end of time — or at least until Ed Sheeran’s X comes out.
Because, long story short: It is. After sending “The Lion King” back to the veldt last week by taking the crown for the longest run at #1 by an animated movie soundtrack, “Frozen” will easily put up a 12th win this week thanks to another 115,000 units shifted, according to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan.
The Future Is Now
The real action, though, took place just below Olaf and the gang, where Future and Iggy Azalea battled it out for second place. But it was ATL’s spaceman who won thanks to 53,000 in sales for Honest, which just barely squeaked by the full-length debut from Iggy, The New Classic, which moved 52,000. The other big debut in the top 10 was from Las Vegas poppers Neon Trees, Pop Psychology (19,000).
Pharrell About To Make History
Watch out Flo Rida, Pharrell Williams is about to smoke you. With 11 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart, Skateboard P’s “Happy” (208,000) now has the second-longest streak at the top in the chart’s history. The only one longer was by Flo’s “Low,” which spent 13 weeks at #1 in 2007 and 2008.
With the rest of the top five unchanged from last week, the new face in the top 10 belonged to, yup, Iggy. Azalea’s “Fancy” with Charli XCX was up six spots to #6 (108,000), while Justin Timberlake’s “Not a Bad Thing” scooted up two to #9 (87,000).
