Chart Moves: Pink Floyd's 'Division' Returns, 'Voice' Winner's Low Debut, 'Frozen's' 30th Straight Week in Top 10

Disney's 'Frozen'

This week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Trey Songz claimed his second No. 1 with the chart-topping arrival of "Trigga." The album sold 105,000 copies in the week ending July 6, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It was one of five debuts in the top 10, joined by Seether's "Isolate and Medicate" (No. 4), MAGIC!'s "Don't Kill the Magic" (No. 6), Robin Thicke's "Paula" (No. 9) and Colt Ford's "Thanks For Listening" (No. 10).

There's a full 200 albums on the chart, so let's take a look at some of the list's other movers and shakers:

-- Soundtrack, "Frozen" - No. 5 - The smash Disney movie soundtrack spends its 28th straight week in the top five, and 30th consecutive frame in the top 10. 

The last album to spend more weeks stuck in the top five was Adele's "21," which had two lengthy consecutive runs in the region. It spent 68 weeks in the top five in total, separated by two runs of 39 and 29 straight weeks (between March 12, 2011 - Dec. 3, 2011 and Dec. 17, 2011 - June 30, 2012, respectively).


The last soundtrack to spend as many weeks in the top five was the Whitney Houston-led "The Bodyguard" soundtrack. It spent 31 weeks in total in the top five, with 30 of those consecutive between 1992 and 1993. (Its 31st week in the top five came following Houston's death in 2012.)

With regards to "Frozen's" long run in the top 10 -- 30 weeks and counting -- again, Adele's "21" was the last album to notch as many weeks in the region. "21" spent a total of 81 weeks in the top 10, with 78 of those consecutive between 2011 and 2012. (The last soundtrack to spend 30 straight weeks in the top five was "The Bodyguard," which tallied exactly 32 frames between Dec. 5, 1992 and July 10, 1993. In total, "The Bodyguard" spent 42 weeks in the top 10.)

-- Jenni Rivera, "1969 - Siempre: En Vivo Desde Monterrey -- Parte 2" - No. 27 - In total, the late Latin diva has charted 11 albums on the Billboard 200. Of those, seven of those debuted on the chart following her death in December of 2012. Over on the Regional Mexican Albums chart, "Simpre, Parte 2" is Rivera's seventh No. 1 -- tying her with Selena for the most No. 1s among female artists.

-- Tessanne Chin, "Count On My Love" - No. 41 - The most recent winner of "The Voice" sees her post-show album debut with 7,000 copies. This is the lowest sales debut for a "Voice" winner thus far, dipping below the 10,000 bow of first season champ Javier Colon's "Come Through For You" in 2011. (Colon's album, however, peaked at No. 134 from that sales figure -- as it was released during the competitive holiday season when sales are generally higher.)

Chin was crowned the winner of the fifth season of NBC's "The Voice" on Dec. 17, 2013.

Second season winner Jermaine Paul has yet to release an album, while third season winner Cassadee Pope saw her "Frame by Frame" album bow at No. 9 with 43,000. Danielle Bradbery, who won the fourth season, debuted and peaked at No. 19 in 2013 with her self-titled debut, selling 41,000 in its first week.

-- Soundtrack, "Begin Again" - No. 44 - The star-studded soundtrack debuts with 44,000 and boasts the film's stars Keira Knightly, Adam Levine and Cee-Lo. Over on the Soundtracks chart, it enters at No. 4. 

-- Pink Floyd, "The Division Bell" - No. 60 - The rock act's 1994 album returns to the chart at No. 60 (5,000 sold; up 1,903 percent) thanks to a deluxe reissue. The album has been off the chart since 1995, after debuting at No. 1 on the chart dated April 23, 1994. It spent four weeks atop the list -- the second-longest run at No. 1 for the band. Of their five No. 1 albums, only "The Wall" ruled longer, with 15 weeks at No. 1. 

-- Bon Jovi, "New Jersey" - No. 73 - Another rock album, of a slightly different vintage, returns to the list thanks to a deluxe reissue. Thirteen steps behind the return of Pink Floyd's "The Division Bell" we find Bon Jovi's "New Jersey," stepping back in at No. 73 with 4,000 (up 3,420 percent). Re-issued with oodles of bonus tracks, the former No. 1 album jumps back onto the tally for the first time since 1990.
