It's been on the market for over four months now, but Katy Perry's latest album, Prism, continues to maintain some of its top spots on the charts.

As of Monday, the album's latest single, "Dark Horse" featuring Juicy J, remains at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after 24 weeks. The song ranks right behind Pharrell Williams' "Happy," the Oscar-nominated song from "Despicable Me 2."

"Dark Horse" is also faring well on the pop chart, as it holds the top spot for another week, its 13th overall on the list. "Happy" sits in its peak position of fourth, creeping up from the No. 10 spot last week.

Perry's single has gotten some extra press lately after the Egyptian-themed music video was edited to remove an Allah pendant shown on a man being burned. A petition called the depiction "blasphemous" and several Muslims called on YouTube to remove the video from its site. An official "Dark Horse (Urban Remix)" was also released on March 2, featuring an extra verse from Juicy J.

Prism as a whole, however, experienced a dip on the Billboard 200, which ranks top-selling albums across all genres. For its 19th week on the chart, the album falls from the No. 7 spot all the way to No. 14. That spot sits behind eight newcomers, including ScHoolboy Q's debut album, Oxymoron.

Perry, 29, continues to tour and on Friday announced the addition of five extra shows to the Australian leg of the "Prismatic World Tour" this November.
