LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - The soundtrack for Disney's hit animated film Frozen reclaimed the top spot on the weekly Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday, becoming the first soundtrack in 15 years to notch more than five weeks at No. 1 on the chart.

The Frozen soundtrack, which features the Oscar-nominated song Let It Go, sold another 89,000 copies last week, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.

Since its release in November, the album has sold more than 1.1 million copies and topped Billboard 200 for five non-consecutive weeks.

The Walt Disney Co animated movie about two Nordic princess sisters continues to perform strongly, nearing US$1 billion (S$1.26 billion) at the worldwide box office.
