The soundtrack album of Disney's "Frozen (2013)" continues its domination on Billboard 200. The set is now enjoying its 12th non-consecutive week at the chart's top slot after selling another 115,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Frozen" becomes one of only eight albums to have spent at least 12 weeks at No. 1 since SoundScan began powering Billboard in 1991. Since being released last November, the album has sold 2.5 million copies with 2.1 million sold in 2014.

Next on Billboard 200, Future's sophomore album "Honest" enters the chart at No. 2 with 53,000 units sold. Giving the rapper his best sales week and highest-charting record yet, the record surpasses his 2012 set "Pluto" which opened at No. 8 with 41,000.

Future's new album also manages to outsell Iggy Azalea's "The New Classic", which comes with 52,000. The fact that "Honest" outsells "Classic" is quite surprising as the Australian femcee's LP was last week projected to win the first-week sales against Future's.

At the chart's No. 4, Pharrell Williams' "G I R L" climbs from last week's No. 7 with 21,000 while August Alsina's "Testimony" slips from No. 2 to No. 5 with 20,000.

Neon Trees' "Pop Psychology" makes its debut at No. 6 with nearly 19,000. Luke Bryan's "Crash My Party" falls to No. 7 with 19,000. At No. 8, the new "Nashville: On the Record" live album arrives with 18,000.

Rounding out the top 10 are Lorde's "Pure Heroine" (No. 9 with 16,000) and Bethel Music's Christian worship album "You Make Me Brave: Live at the Civic" (14,000).
