LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Hip hop artist ScHoolboy Q knocked Disney's juggernaut soundtrack Frozen from the top spot of the Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday.

Oxymoron, the third studio album from ScHoolboy Q and the first to be released through a major label, Universal Music Group's Interscope Records, sold 139,000 copies in its first week, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.

The Frozen soundtrack, which features the hit Oscar-winning song Let It Go and previously topped the Billboard chart for five non-consecutive weeks, dropped to No. 2 this week with 91,000 copies.

The Walt Disney Co film still performs strongly at the global box office, recently crossing the US$1 billion (S$1.27 billion) mark in ticket sales worldwide.
