Disney's "Frozen" soundtrack returns to No. 1 on Billboard 200

Disney's

PanARMENIAN.Net - The soundtrack to Disney's "Frozen" returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 93,000 copies in the week ending Jan. 26, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's up 7% compared with its sales in the previous week (87,000). This is the album’s third nonconsecutive week at No. 1. A week ago, it was No. 2, Billboard reported.

Last week's chart-topper, Bruce Springsteen's "High Hopes," falls to No. 8 in its second week, selling 26,000 (down 74%).

"Frozen" is the first soundtrack to spend at least three weeks at No. 1 since 2007, when the TV soundtrack to "High School Musical 2" ruled for four frames. The last film soundtrack to spend three or more weeks at the top was "Bad Boys II," which reigned for four weeks in August 2003.

Cumulative sales for "Frozen" now rise to 769,000.

The film continues to do big business at the U.S. and Canada box office, even though it was released last November. According to Box Office Mojo, for the Jan. 24-26 weekend, the film was the fourth-highest-grossing movie, earning $9.1 million. Through Jan. 27, the movie has earned $348.6 million, making it the fourth-highest-grossing film released in 2013.

The highest debut on the Billboard 200 this week is the "2014 Grammy Nominees" compilation, which enters at No. 2. It starts with 59,000 (a larger-than-expected figure), according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album showcases a variety of songs and artists that were honored at this year's Grammy Awards, which were broadcast on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 26.

Traditionally, the "Grammy Nominees" album is released a number of weeks before the broadcast of the awards show itself, but this year, the album arrived during the same week as the show. That one-two punch of exposure (being both a new release and having the show help promote it) lifted the "Grammy Nominees" set higher than first forecast. A week ago, some industry sources suggested it would sell around 40,000 or so.
