Disney’s “Frozen (2013)” is proving to be a golden ticket and mutli-record breaking machine raking in more fans than any other animated movie in history. According to Wikpedia.com, the pick grossed over $1,1 billion worldwide with nearly a third of the income generated in the North American market. In addition to the astonishing record-breaking sales at the box office, the film’s album is also making headlines since it was first released in November last year. The album has posted its biggest sales week since entering the charts with 259,000 copies, sealing its 11th non-consecutive win on Billboard’s Hot 200.
Billboard.com is confident that the “Frozen” soundtrack will continue its lengthy run at No. 1 for the 12th week. The site reports that “according to industry sources, the album could sell around 100,000 copies in the week ending April 27”. “Frozen” should be ahead of the likely No. 2 album, Iggy Azalea’s “The New Classic,” which is speculated to debut with approximately 50,000 to 55,000.
The soundtrack album also joins a long list of records broken by the animated pic which includes breaking the record for the most number of weeks atop the U.S. album chart by the soundtrack for an animated picture. The record was previously held by “The Lion King” with 10 weeks. The new top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart will be revealed on April 30.
