Frozen soundtrack set to take The Lion King's album chart record
The soundtrack has topped the US album chart for nine weeks
The soundtrack to the hit animated film spent a ninth consecutive week at the top of Billboard 200, chasing The Lion King's ten week record.
The album is only the fourth soundtrack from an animated film to top the US album chart, following The Lion King in 1994, Pocahontas in 1995 and Curious George in 2006.
The Frozen soundtrack sold 149,000 copies in the US in the week ending 6 April, and looks likely to top sales of 2 million units next week.
In the UK, the album has been named the top-selling compilation of 2014 so far, selling over 177,000 copies to beat Now That's What I Call Music 86.
Composed by husband and wife duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the soundtrack features hit single "Let It Go", which was performed by Demi Lovato.
The track won the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in February.
The film continues to perform well at the US box office, making $399,877 in ticket sales last weekend five months after its release.
