FROZEN IS FROZEN AT TOP OF MUSIC CHART

April 24, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

In its 11th (nonconsecutive) week on Billboard’s top-200 record chart, the soundtrack for Disney’s Frozen sold 259,000 copies, its best week yet. It nearly doubled the previous week’s sales of 133,000 copies. Moreover it broke a record for any animated-film soundtrack on the chart. The previous record was set 20 years ago by Disney’s The Lion King when it held the top spot on the Billboard chart for 10 weeks. Sales for the week were probably aided by Easter holiday shopping, spring school break, and strong sales for the Frozen DVD and Blu-ray disk. It has now sold 2.3 million copies to date. Billboard said that since it began publishing the Billboard 200 chart in 1956, Frozen is one of only 15 soundtracks of any kind to spend at least 11 weeks at No. 1.
