'Frozen' Soundtrack Hits No. 1 on Billboard 200, Bumps Beyoncé

“Frozen” is the fourth animated film soundtrack to reach No. 1 in the chart's 58-year history

Disney's “Frozen” was not only tops at the box office last weekend, its soundtrack shot to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart, as well, and bumped Beyoncé to the No. 2 spot in the process.

Billboard reports the soundtrack — previously falling in fourth place on the chart — sold 165,000 copies in the week ending Jan. 5, according to Nielsen SoundScan, while Beyoncé's self-titled surprise album sold 130,000 copies, and 1.43 million to date.

The “Frozen” soundtrack debuted on the chart at No. 18 in mid-December, and has since sold 503,000 copies.

The movie soundtrack marks the first to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 since “Les Miserables” did just short of a year ago. It is also only the fourth animated film soundtrack to reach No. 1 since the Billboard 200 became a regularly published weekly chart in 1956. It follows Jack Johnson's “Curious George” in 2006, and Disney's “Pocahontas” in 1995 and “The Lion King” in 1994.
