Frozen Soundtrack Still Rock Solid In Sales
April 16, 2014

The unstoppable soundtrack to Disney's Frozen continues to reign supreme on the sales chart as it notches a 10th non-consecutive week at #1 by selling another 133,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album's cumulative sales have now passed the 2 million mark. Frozen also is one of only 11 albums to have spent at least 10 weeks at #1 since the chart started using SoundScan's point-of-sale data on May 25, 1991, reports Billboard. Four of those 11 albums also happen to be soundtracks: Frozen, The Bodyguard, Titanic, and The Lion King. In addition, Frozen now ties The Lion King for the most weeks at #1 for an animated film soundtrack.

Pharrell Williams' G I R L is the #2 album this week with 29,000 units sold. 5 Seconds of Summer's She Looks So Perfect EP is #3 with just over 26,000, and MercyMe scores a #4 debut with Welcome to the New, shifting 26,000. Black Label Society picks up its second Top 10 album with the #5 debut of Catacombs of the Black Vatican, selling nearly 26,000 copies.

In the back half of the Top 10, R&B singer SoMo's self-titled second album bows at #6 with 23,000 sold. Country singer Martina McBride earns a #7 debut with her new covers album, Everlasting, shifting 21,000. Luke Bryan's Crash My Party is #8 with 19,000; Shakira's self-titled album is #9 with 17,000; and Florida Georgia Line is #10 with Here's to the Good Times, hovering around 17,000 in sales.
