By Kyle Johnson,

The Frozen soundtrack remained at the top of the Billboard 200 chart for the ninth week, while 5 Seconds of Summer debuted on the chart in second place.

For the week ending April 6, according to Nielsen SoundScan, the soundtrack sold another 149,000 copies, reports Billboard. If Frozen remains in the top spot for another week, it will tie The Lion King for most weeks an animated film's soundtrack was No. 1.

Five Seconds of Summer started at the second spot on the top 200 with their new EP She Looks So Perfect. The Australian pop/rock group sold 143,000 copies of their EP, which is actually lower than early projections. It was estimated that their EP would sell more than 150,000 copies in its first week.

The band's sales were heavily skewed towards online sales, with 75 percent being digital.

In a distant third was Chevelle's latest album La Gargola, which sold 45,000 copies, reports HitFix. The band has never charted higher than sixth prior to this album.

Christina Perri sold 40,000 copies of Head or Heart, which was good enough for fourth place, while Shakira dropped to fifth place with 29,000 copies sold.
