Frozen soundtrack slides back to the top of charts, Katy Perry makes history

The Frozen soundtrack has returned to the top of the album chart for a third week at number one.

It becomes the first film album to spend at least three weeks on top since the soundtrack to High School Musical 2 spent four weeks at number one in 2007.

The 2014 Grammy Nominees compilation is this week's highest debut on the Billboard 200 at number two, while Beyonce's self-titled album rises a spot to three, and A Great Big World's first album, Is There Anybody Out There?, enters the chart at number four.

Last week's number one album, High Hopes by Bruce Springsteen, drops to eight on the new countdown.

Meanwhile, Katy Perry scores her ninth number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with Dark Horse.

The pop star tells Billboard.com, "This number one is the most unexpected one I've ever had... I'm so thrilled and grateful to have these moments."

Perry now ties for 10th place among artists with the most U.S chart-toppers with the Bee Gees, Elton John, Paul McCartney and Usher. The Beatles have the most number ones with 20.

Last week's number one, Pitbull and Ke$ha's Timber, topples to two, while OneRepublic's Counting Stars stays put at three.
