“Frozen” remained hot on the U.S. album chart last week, as the Disney soundtrack held onto the No. 1 position for a 10th non-consecutive week.
For the fifth week in a row, “Frozen” took the top position with sales of 133,000 (off 11%), according to Nielsen SoundScan data for the week ending April 13, vaulting over the 2 million-unit sales mark. Its 10-week stand at the apex matches the record for an animated soundtrack set in 1994-95 by Disney’s “The Lion King.” However, the present title is unlikely to top unit sales of “King,” which shifted more than 10 million.
The continuing streak for “Frozen” provided a bit of upbeat news in an otherwise bleak chart week. The No. 2 title, Pharrell Williams’ holdover “G I R L,” moved a mere 29,000 copies (up 18%), and three titles in the national top 10 failed to sell more than 20,000.
