LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - The animated princesses of Disney hit Frozen reclaimed the top of the Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday as the soundtrack to the juggernaut film beat new entries to No. 1.

Frozen, which features the Oscar-winning track Let It Go, sold 99,000 copies in its 16th week on the chart and climbed from No. 3 last week, according to data from Nielsen SoundScan.

Frozen was only one of four soundtracks to have clocked six weeks or more on the Billboard 200 chart since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991.

The film, about a pair of Nordic princesses forced to save their kingdom from a never-ending winter, surpassed US$1 billion (S$1.26 billion) at the worldwide box office.
