'Frozen' soundtrack returns to top of Billboard 200 chart for sixth week at No. 1

By Daniel S Levine,

Disney’s Frozen soundtrack is back at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart this week, topping Luke Bryan’s new release and knocking Rick Ross down a couple of rungs. The soundtrack has now notched six non-consecutive weeks at No. 1.

Frozen added another 99,000 copies sold this past week, Nielsen SoundScan numbers for Billboard show. That’s actually less than the previous week, when the album sold 100,000 copies.

Overall, Frozen has sold 1.4 million copies and 1.1 million just since Jan. 1. It’s the first album to sell 1 million copies in the 2014 calendar year.

Frozen is only the fourth soundtrack to have six or more weeks since 1991, when Nielsen began calculating sales for the magazine. It earned its fifth week last month. It’s the most weeks at No. 1 for a soundtrack since Titanic had the No. 1 spot for an astonishing 16 consecutive weeks in 1998.

Bryan released Spring Break 6 ... Like We Ain’t Ever only on digital stores, but it still sold 74,000 copies. The EP debuted at No. 2.

Ross’ Mastermind, which started at No. 1 last week, slid to No. 3 with just 49,000 copies sold.

Aloe Blacc’s Lift Your Spirit started at a career-best No. 4 with 45,000 copies sold. G I R L by Pharrell Williams slid to No. 5 with 45,000 copies.

The rest of the Top 10 includes 311’s Stereolithic, the Rise of an Empire Young Money collection, Lorde’s Pure Heroine, Sara Evans’ Slow Me Down and Eric Church’s The Outsiders.

Although G I R L isn’t selling incredibly well right away, Williams’ “Happy” still topped the Digital Songs chart with 364,000 downloads.
