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.
