Spring Might Be Coming, But 'Frozen' Won't Let Go Of The Billboard No. 1

The Frozen soundtrack has topped the Billboard Chart for the sixth week in a row, proving that Idina Menzel is a national treasure. Who cares that it’s the first day of spring. Obviously any season can be Frozen season, as long as Let It Go is playing. The soundtrack to the icy Disney flick is back at No. 1 this week with 99,000 copies in the week ending March 16, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That’s 1% down from the week before, but still enough to put Frozen firmly in the lead, THR reports.

Disney's princess flick celebrates independance and tops records in all categories.

The week before, the movie soundtrack ended up in third place, with an easily calculable 1% more for 100,000 copies. This makes the Frozen soundtrack the first album to pass the million sales mark for 2014.This year, the compilation has sold 1.1 million, bringing its total for 2013 and 2014 to a matching 1.4 million sales. The set was released last November, and it sold 338,000 in 2013. This makes the sixth nonconsecutive week atop the chart for Frozen. It first topped the list dated Jan. 18, reflecting the sales week that ended Jan. 5.

Check out the trailer below.

Frozen is just one of four albums to hold the top spot in the Billboard chart for six weeks since Nielsen began keeping records of the chart in 1991. The top three champions ever are Michael Jackson’s Thriller in 1983/84, the West Side Story soundtrack in 1962/63 and Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors in 1977/1978.
