LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Hip-shaking Colombian singer Shakira was no match for Disney's animated princesses on the weekly Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday, April 2, 2014, as the Frozen movie soundtrack continued its reign at the top.

The Frozen soundtrack, released in November 2013, sold 161,000 copies last week, bringing its total US sales to 1.8 million, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.

Billboard said 1.5 million of Frozen soundtrack sales were in 2014, making it the year's biggest selling album so far.

Beyonce's self-titled album that she released in December comes in second with 604,000 copies sold so far in 2014.
