LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - The soundtrack to the Walt Disney Co. animated film Frozen topped the weekly Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday for the second consecutive week, again holding off Beyonce.
Frozen sold 86,000 copies last week, down from 165,000 the previous week, edging R&B singer Beyonce's self-titled album, which sold 79,000 copies last week, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.
Billboard said Frozen is the first soundtrack to claim the top spot for consecutive weeks since Dreamgirls in 2007.
The soundtrack has been helped by the film's box office popularity, Billboard said, citing sources. The film has grossed US$319 million (S$404 million) at the domestic box office since its November release.
