Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Official Soundtrack

Today, the Frozen soundtrack from Walt Disney Records was ranked the No. 1 best-selling album on the 2014 year-end Billboard 200 chart, for the period November 24, 2013 to November 16, 2014.  It is the first soundtrack to reach No. 1 on the year-end chart since Titanic in 1998 and is the first Disney soundtrack to top the chart since Mary Poppins in 1965.

Released on December 9, 2013, the Grammy®-nominated soundtrack spent 33 weeks in the top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart, including 13 weeks at No. 1.  It is certified triple Platinum, selling more than 3.6 million units to date.  The soundtrack was also named iTune’s No. 1 best-selling album of 2014.

Featuring original songs from Oscar® winner Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit,” “Winnie the Pooh”) and Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”), and an original score by Christophe Beck (“The Muppets,” Oscar®-winning short “Paperman”), “Frozen” won two Academy Awards® (best animated film and best original song with “Let It Go”) and a Golden Globe® (best animated feature film).  It is the fifth highest grossing film of all time and the highest grossing animated film earning more than $1.27 billion globally. Released wide domestically on Nov. 27, 2013, “Frozen” posted the No. 1 industry all-time Thanksgiving debut and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ biggest opening ever. The film’s Feb. 25 digital debut was the biggest digital release (sell-through) ever; its Blu-ray/DVD release on March 18 was No. 1 on the Nielsen overall disc charts for eight nonconsecutive weeks.

Last week the album received Grammy® nominations in the categories of Best Compilation Soundtrack, Best Score Soundtrack and Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Earlier today, YouTube posted their 2014 Rewind video celebrating the biggest moments of the year, which featured performances of “Let It Go” by today’s biggest YouTube stars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKx2B8WCQuw&feature=youtu.be
