‘Frozen’ Soundtrack Chills Atop Album Chart For A Seventh Week, Holds Off YG & Foster The People
This week sees a whopping six new debuts in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart — including YG‘s My Krazy Life at #2 (61,000 copies sold), Foster The People‘s Supermodel at #3 (54,000) and Skrillex‘s Recess at #4 (47,000) — yet none of them are able to unseat the mighty Frozen soundtrack, which is sitting at #1 for a seventh non-consecutive week.
The Oscar-winning Frozen is still in theaters, and its domestic box office total is $397 million. But the animated Disney blockbuster was also released on DVD and Blu-Ray last week, which no doubt helped boost the soundtrack to its best sales week yet. (It moved another 202,000 copies.) To-date, the album has sold 1.6 million total.
Also getting a lift is the soundtrack’s breakout single, the Idina Menzel number “Let It Go,” which moves up to #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
