Frozen Staves Off Arrival Of Four New Debuts
April 23, 2014


August Alsina
Disney's Frozen soundtrack continues its dominance on the sales chart this week, despite the fact that the albums ranking #2 through #5 are all new arrivals. In fact, Frozen, fueled by Easter shopping, earns its biggest sales week yet with 259,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This gives the album its 11th week at #1, and it surpasses The Lion King (with 10 weeks at #1) as the longest-running #1 soundtrack by an animated film. To put it in a different perspective, Frozen is the first album since One Direction's Midnight Memories to score five straight weeks of sales that exceed 100,000 units.

Meanwhile, debuting at #2 is Testimony, the first album from up-and-coming artist August Alsina. The album, which sold around 69,000 copies, also starts at #1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, according to Billboard. Rock band NEEDTOBREATHE launches at #3 with its highest-charting album ever, Rivers In the Wasteland, selling 49,000.
Jason Derulo logs his first Top 10 effort with Talk Dirty, bowing at #4 with 44,000 sold. This marks the pop singer's best sales week yet. Ingrid Michaelson closes out the Top 5 with the debut of Lights Out, selling 37,000 in its first week. This is her second Top 10 effort, following 2012's Human Again.

As for the back half of the Top 10, Luke Bryan's Crash My Party is #6 with 33,000; Pharrell Williams' G I R L is #7 with just under 33,000; Lorde's Pure Heroine is #8 with 26,000; 5 Seconds of Summer's She Looks So Perfect is #9 with just under 26,000; and the Now 49 compilation is #10 with 22,000.
