Disney has successfully book-ended the past two decades with back-to-back hit soundtracks. Frozen, released last November, has matched the 10-week reign of fellow Oscar winner The Lion King atop the Billboard 200, the last animated feature soundtrack to spend as much time at #1. The time span between the two albums’ chart runs is almost 20 years, with the soundtrack to The Lion King — which contained the Elton John hits “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and “Circle Of Life” — having been released on May 31, 1994.
Billboard points out that the Frozen soundtrack has now sold more than 2 million copies, easily making it the biggest-selling LP of 2014. In fact, no other album has even crossed the 1 million mark. This week the album added another 133,000 copies to its total.
