'Frozen' soundtrack has strongest week to date, tops album charts again

By Chelsea Lewis ,

The soundtrack to Disney's animated feature Frozen will not be thawed from the top spot on the Billboard album charts. The soundtrack has now logged another week at No. 1 on the charts, making it 11 weeks in a row.

Billboard reported that over the week leading up to Easter, the soundtrack had its largest week of sales to date selling over 259,000 copies. This is a 94 percent jump from its last week of sales, which was 133,000 copies

Frozen is now only the ninth album and third soundtrack that has ever spent at least 11 weeks at the No. 1 spot. Frozen has now moved passed another popular Disney classic soundtrack, The Lion King which only spent 10 weeks in the top spot.

The soundtrack, which features Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell and the hit single "Let It Go" has already sold 2.3 million copies since it was released back in November.

Frozen was helped by Easter sales which tend to help albums that are family and child friendly.

Even with this feature film becoming one of the most popular animated Disney movies of all time, a sequel is not yet in production, The Huffington Post notes.

Chairman Alan Horn spoke at the Tribeca Film Festival and said that the Broadway musical based on the hit film, which is currently in preproduction, is the bigger focus at the moment.
