LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Disney princesses once again ruled the Billboard 200 on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, as the Frozen soundtrack clocked a 12th week at No. 1 on the weekly album chart, holding off new entries. Frozen, which features the Oscar-winning song Let It Go,sold another 115,000 copies last week, bringing its cumulative US sales to 2.5 million, according to figures from Nielsen Soundscan.

Five new albums entered the Billboard 200 top 10 this week.
