Idina Menzel - Idina Menzel Makes More History On The U.s. Album Chart

Idina Menzel's amazing year has just hit another milestone in the U.S. - the Broadway cast recording of her latest show If/Then has debuted at number 19 on the Billboard 200 chart, the first time such an album has entered the chart so high in almost two decades.

Ironically, the last cast album to debut at 19 was Rent in 1996 - and that also featured Menzel.

So far in 2014, Menzel has starred in Frozen, the most successful animated film ever made, performed at the Oscars and landed a Tony nomination for her role in If/Then. Her Frozen song Let It Go has also become a modern classic, helping Menzel to become the first Tony-winning actor to have a top 10 single.

If/Then and Rent are two of only four Broadway cast albums to reach the Billboard 200 top 20 since 1980. The others were The Book of Mormon in 2011 and Dreamgirls in 1982.
