Disney's Frozen becomes iTunes best-seller
'Frozen' tops the iTunes album chart in early 2014.

COMMENT | After roaring success in cinemas both here in the UK and domestically in the US, the soundtrack to Disney's 'Frozen' has now topped the iTunes chart for album sales.

Having seen off competition from the likes of One Republic, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan, the Disney OST currently resides in the number one slot after a recent increase in its sales.

Having been released in the UK on December 2nd, the soundtrack for Disney's 53rd feature film proved a hit with viewers and critics alike, but has only now just soared to the summit of iTunes. Coincidentally, I even wrote a piece a few days ago questioning whether the music from the film features on the best soundtrack of the year. My thoughts were that, after listening to the album on repeat, the collection of songs were a fantastic, catchy and well-crafted selection.

It remains to be seen just how long it stays at the peak with buyer preferences altering frequently, but for now at least the public seem to be getting fully behind the film.

Box Office Success

Recently it was announced that 'Frozen' officially became Disney's highest ever grossing film in the UK, with takings after debuting in America to impressive figures. It amassed $93.6 million within five days there, and so far has made just over $500 million worldwide.

Awards Contender

What's more is that the film, directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, is up for a number of awards including an Oscar and Golden Globe. The film looks set to do well once the awards are dished out, with its main rivals appearing in the shape of Hayao Miyazaki's 'The Wind Rises' as well as Pixar's 'Monster's University'; although 'Frozen', now at least, seems to be in a much stronger position than the latter.
