Frozen, Future Lead Album Sales
April 30, 2014


Future
Once again, the soundtrack to Disney's Frozen is the top-selling album in the country with another 115,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Frozen is just the eighth album to have spent at least 12 weeks at #1 since SoundScan started tracking sales data in 1991. Its total sales now stand at 2.5 million copies. Meanwhile, rapper Future scores a #2 debut with Honest, shifting 53,000 copies. This marks his best sales week and highest-charting album yet. Fewer than 1,000 copies behind Future is rapper Iggy Azalea with the debut album The New Classic, starting at #3 with 52,000. Billboard notes that The New Classic is the highest-charting rap album from a woman since Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded debuted at #1 on the April 21, 2012 chart.

Pharrell Williams' G I R L is #4 this week with 21,000 sold, while August Alsina's Testimony is #5 with 20,000. Neon Trees nab their first Top 10 effort with Pop Psychology, bowing at #6 with 19,000. It's also the best sales week for the band. Luke Bryan's Crash My Party is in the #7 slot with 19,000, and the new Nashville: On the Record live album from the cast of ABC's Nashville series enters at #8 with 18,000. Lorde's Pure Heroine falls to #9 in its 30th week with 16,000, and Bethel Music's Christian worship album You Make Me Brave: Live at the Civic closes out the Top 10 with 14,000 sold.
