Chart Moves: 'Divergent' Soundtrack Debuts on Billboard 200, Christian Music Takes Over Dance Chart

This week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, the unstoppable "Frozen" soundtrack returned to No. 1 for a sixth nonconsecutive week, while Luke Bryan's latest "Spring Break" EP started at No. 2. Outside the top 10, there were a number of movers and shakers -- let's take a closer look at some of them:

-- Eminem, "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" - No. 20 - The album sold another 13,000 copies in the week ending March 16, according to Nielsen SoundScan, bringing its cumulative total past 2 million (2.004 million to be exact). All of Eminem's albums have now each sold more than 2 million, led by the first "The Marshall Mathers LP," with 10.8 million. (He also happens to be one of only two acts with two 10-million sellers since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. The other: Backstreet Boys.)

-- Soundtrack, "Divergent" - No. 29 - The latest young adult novel series-turned major motion picture event -- "Divergent" -- sees its companion soundtrack bow at No. 29 on the Billboard 200 with 10,000 sold in the week ending March 16, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The set, which features a slew of new music by Ellie Goulding, Snow Patrol, Kendrick Lamar, M83 and A$AP Rocky (among others), follows similar movie/soundtrack combos like "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games."

The "Divergent" album arrived a little over a week before the film reached theaters, as the set bowed on March 11, while the movie opened in theaters on March 21. That could explain why the album starts a bit tepidly, as audiences have yet to connect the film to its music. If the movie drives home the importance of its music to memorable scenes in the film (as was done with "Twilight," for example), then we could see growth for the set.

 The first "Twilight" album debuted on Nov. 3, 2008, while its parent film didn't reach theaters until Nov. 21. That didn't hurt sales of the album though, as it launched with 165,000 at No. 1. It then sold in excess of 100,000 in each of its first eight weeks of release.

As for "The Hunger Games," its first album bowed on March 20, 2012 -— just three days before the movie arrived. The film's debut helped carry the album to a 175,000 bow at No. 1.

Like both "Twilight" and "Hunger Games," the "Divergent" film has planned sequels already in the works. A second film will arrive on March 15, 2015, while a third comes on March 18, 2016.

-- Ellie Goulding, "Halycon" - No. 51 - The singer performed on NBC's "Today" on March 12, helping left this album's sales by 61 percent. In turn, it jumps from No. 103 to No. 51, selling 6,000 -- its best sales week since the week ending Dec. 29, 2013. 

-- Jesus Culture, "Reconstructed Volume 1" - No. 97 - A week after Hillsong United made news as the first Christian act to top the Dance/Electronic Albums chart, Jesus Culture places this set at No. 4 on that list. It also begins at No. 5 on Christian Albums and No. 97 on the Billboard 200.

With Jesus Culture's arrival on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart, there are two Christian titles among the top five this week. Hillsong United's "The White Album (Remix Project)" slips from No. 1 to No. 5 in its second week.

-- Ruben Studdard, "Unconditional Love" - No. 101 - Following publicity and promotion in the week ending March 16, the former "American Idol" winner zips back onto the chart with a 128 percent gain. During the week, he performed on TV's "Dr. Phil," and Centric premiered "Being: Ruben Studdard."

-- Soundtrack, "Glee, the Music: Season Five - City of Angels" - No. 122 - The Fox TV series' 23rd charting album is also its lowest debut, as the EP starts at No. 122 with 3,000. From 2009 through 2011, all but one of the show's 14 entries hit the top 10. Since then, "Glee" has returned to the region only once.

-- Of Monsters and Men, "My Head Is An Animal" - No. 129 - With another 3,000 sold, the rock act's album creeps past the 1 million sales mark. The set's total song sales (led by the No. 1 Triple A and Alternative hit "Little Talks") stands at 4.4 million.
