No stopping it now...
The soundtrack to Disney's Frozen is on top of the Billboard 200 for a thirteenth nonconsecutive week, selling 106,000 cpies. It's one of only 39 albums to have spent at least thirteen weeks on top in the entire history of the chart (all the way back to 1956).
Only five albums have had exactly thirteen weeks, including the original Broadway cast recording of Hair (1969), the Monkees' self-titled debut album (1966), Judy Garland's Judy at Carnegie Hall (1961) and Enoch Light/Terry Snyder and the All-Stars' Persuasive Percussion (1960).
This is also Frozen's tenth nonconsecutive week of sales over 100,000 copies. The last album to do this was Taylor Swift's red, which ended that run on December 30, 2012 after selling over 100,000 in its first ten weeks. Frozen now has a total of 2.6 million copies sold, 2.2 million of which are from this year.
