The soundtrack to Disney’s winter movie Frozen has landed the film a very rare double in the U.S. — number ones on the Billboard 200 album chart and the box office countdown in the same week.
It becomes only the fourth animated film soundtrack to reach number one in the chart’s 58-year history, ending Beyonce’s reign at the top of the countdown in the process.
The project, featuring songs by the movie’s actresses Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, and pop star Demi Lovato, reaches the top with New Year week sales of 165,000 and claims the number one spot as much of America freezes as winter weather brings many cities to a standstill.
Beyonce’s self-titled album drops a spot from number one, where it spent three weeks, while Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 stays put at three and Katy Perry’s PRISM rises from five to four.
Meanwhile, Timber, Ke$ha’s new collaboration with Pitbull, ends Eminem and Rihanna’s four-week reign at the top of the Bilboard Hot 100 singles countdown – and lands a TransAtlantic double. The track hit the top of the U.K. charts on Sunday.
The news will give the Tik Tok singer something to smile about after checking into rehab last week to seek treatment for an eating disorder.

Global superstar Ke$ha premiere’s the video for her new single “C’Mon” across VEVO today. Check out the video here http://vevo.ly/V00Nie. The video was directed by Darren Craig from The Uprising and shot in Nashville at the end of last year. “C’Mon”, which was co-written by Ke$ha as well as Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee and Cirkut and produced by Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco and Cirkut is currently available at all digital music providers.
WARRIOR, which is executive produced by Kemosabe Records head Dr. Luke, has been critically praised by outlets such as the LA Times who raved, “Enter Ke$ha, who on her second album, “Warrior,” has perfected the art of aspirational rebellion and released a joyous celebration of defiance.” The Associated Press stated that; “Warrior,” the 25-year-old’s sophomore release, is entertaining from top to bottom,” while Rolling Stone declares that; “Ke$ha was born to be a rockstar.”
Pop star Ke$ha has taunted police in California after posting a naughty photo of herself urinating in the street online.
The Tik Tok singer tweeted a snap to followers on Wednesday morning and invited cops to “come and get me if you can find me.”
The photo of the star bent over with her trousers pulled down appears to have been taken by herself.
Had she been spotted, Ke$ha would have been slapped with a $270 fine.

Ke$ha is the latest western musical act to cancel or postpone her upcoming tour of Japan. The pop singer released a statement explaining the postponement via her Japanese promoter, Creativeman Productions:
“My heart is with Japan right now through this disaster and these hardships. I genuinely don’t think right now would be appropriate timing for me to perform in Japan given the content and the spirit of my show, which is all about feeling exuberant, rowdy, and wild. I plan to bring my party there and to that part of the world when we are all ready to dance and Get $leazy together again. In the meantime I am going to do everything I can to help relief efforts and I encourage everyone in the world to do the same.”
