Frozen Soundtrack 2014: 'Let It Go' - Where to Listen & Download for Free?
The 'Frozen' soundtrack has maintained its grip on the top spot of the Billboard 200 chart for the second week, proving that the Disney album has resonated with fans of all ages. MSN News even reports that 'Frozen' has blocked Beyonce's self-titled studio album from climbing to the top of the charts.
'Let It Go,' the track performed by Broadway superstar and 'Glee' favorite Idina Menzel, is the most popular song in the album. The track has captured the hearts of fans everywhere, and if you want the song in your tablet or phone, download Queen Elsa's song and the whole soundtrack from iTunes HERE.
The immense popularity of the Disney single is not a surprise. Apart from being catchy, the song is an anthem that reverberates within any generation: the power to let fear go and just affirm the self, in all its splendor and flaws.
In the film, the track is sung by Queen Elsa as she leaves her kingdom and her fears behind and she instead unleashes her cryokinetic power, finally realizing her full potential as a person. Under the Gun Review notes that apart from the lyrics and the melody, the vocals behind it also plays a huge part in making the track an immense success.
The 'Frozen' soundtrack album is on its seventh week on the Billboard charts, and has topped the weekly Billboard 200 digital album chart for the second week in a row. The Disney soundtrack album has reportedly sold over 80,000 copies last week, while Beyonce's fifth album has sold 79,000 copies, as compiled by Nielsen SoundScan, says MSN News.
Billboard notes that 'Frozen' is "is the first theatrical film soundtrack to rule at No.1 for multiple weeks since 'Dreamgirls' spent two weeks at No.1 in early 2007." 'The Lion King', another Disney production, is the last animated motion picture that spent over a week being No.1 in the charts, dominating the top spot in ten nonconsecutive weeks in 1994 and in 1995.
Interestingly, 'Frozen' tracks have not been played on the radio. Its boost on the charts is attributed to the popularity of the film, which, according to Forbes, has grossed over $300 million at the box office since its release in November last year.
