Pharrell Williams has become one of only 28 artists to top the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for at least 10 weeks after extending his No. 1 run with “Happy.”

The Oscar-nominated song keeps John Legend’s “All of Me” at two for a sixth successive week, while Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” returns to the top three at three.

Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” falls a spot to four and DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” rounds out the new top five.

On the Billboard 200 album chart, there’s no thawing the “Frozen” soundtrack, which lands the number one spot for a 12th week.
