LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Frozen, the soundtrack to Disney's US$1 billion (S$1.25 billion) grossing animated film, spent its fourth consecutive week atop the Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday, edging Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer for the top spot.

Frozen, which has ridden the popularity of the film and its hit song Let It Go by Broadway actress Idina Menzel, sold 149,000 copies last week to reach 1.9 million in US sales since its release in November 2013, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

It is 2014's biggest-selling album so far with about 1.6 million copies sold this year.

She Looks So Perfect, an EP (extended play) from 5 Seconds of Summer, sold 143,000 copies in its opening week. The Aussie quartet, which developed a strong following on YouTube, gained international exposure as the opening act of popular boy band One Direction.
