Frozen Soundtrack Returns To #1
March 19, 2014

The soundtrack to Disney's Frozen returns to #1 on the sales chart this week, selling another 99,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Frozen now becomes the first album to sell over a million units in 2014 (its total sales stand at 1.4 million). This is also the sixth non-consecutive week atop the chart for Frozen, making it one of only four soundtracks with six or more weeks at #1, according to Billboard. The last soundtrack to spend more time at #1 was the companion to another Disney animated film, The Lion King, in 1994 and 1995.

Meanwhile, Luke Bryan's digital-only EP Spring Break 6 … Like We Ain't Ever bows at #2 with 74,000 sold. Last week's chart-topping release, Rick Ross' Mastermind, slips to #3 this week with 49,000. Soulful crooner Aloe Blacc notches his best sales week ever as his third album, Lift Your Spirit, opens at #4 with a little more than 45,000 sold. The vocalist behind Avicii's hit "Wake Me Up" most recently charted with his solo EP, also called Wake Me Up, which reached #32 in January. Pharrell Williams' new solo album, G I R L, is in the #5 slot with 45,000.

In the back half of the Top 10, rockers 311 return to the chart with Stereolithic, bowing at #6 and giving the collective its ninth Top 10 effort. Since 1997, all nine of the group's full-length, non-live albums have debuted in the Top 10, Billboard notes. The Young Money crew opens at #7 with Rise of an Empire, shifting 31,000, and Lorde's Pure Heroine is #8 with just over 27,000 sold. Sara Evans nabs her fourth Top 10 album as Slow Me Down starts at #9 with 27,000, and Eric Church's The Outsiders is #10 with 23,000.
