Three months after its release, "Frozen (2013)" continues to break new records. The animated movie's soundtrack album has just returned to No. 1 on Billboard 200 after selling additional 89,000 copies, Nielsen SoundScan reports.

It marks the record's fifth non-consecutive weeks at the chart's top slot. It also becomes the first soundtrack with the most weeks at No. 1 since 1998, when "Titanic" stayed atop the list for 16 consecutive weeks.

The "Frozen" soundtrack album dethrones last week's first placer Eric Church's "The Outsiders", which is now at No. 2 after selling 74,000 in its second week. Behind the country crooner is Cole Swindell, who has his self-titled debut album "Cole Swindell" landed at No. 3 with 63,000.

At No. 4, the "Now 49" compilation album slips from last week's No. 3 with 45,000. Also falling one rung, Beyonce Knowles' fifth studio effort "Beyonce" rounds out the top 5 with 35,000. Meanwhile, Lorde's "Pure Heroine" and Katy Perry's "Prism" ascend to No. 6 and No. 7 with 30,000 and 26,000, respectively.

Bruno Mars' "Unorthodox Jukebox", which returned to the chart's top 10 following his performance at Super Bowl earlier this month, dips from No. 5 to No. 8 with 23,000. At No. 9, rock band Issues' self-titled debut album opens with 22,000.

Claiming the last spot on Billboard 200's top 10 is "Love, Marriage, & Divorce", Toni Braxton and Babyface's collaborative set which sells 21,000 in its third week.
