'Frozen' Soundtrack Could Take Down Adele, Taylor Swift In Its Billboard Warpath

Posted: Updated:

Is Adele's hot streak about to be bested by a Disney soundtrack? Probably not, but it's fun to postulate anyway.

The "Frozen" album is eyeing its eighth week atop the Billboard chart, and if it succeeds, it'll be the longest-running No. 1 release since Adele's "21." The beloved Disney tunes have a ways to go to catch up to the singer, however, as "21" spent a whopping 24 weeks as the highest-ranked album.

"Frozen" can count Taylor Swift among its conquests, though. It's currently tied with "Red" for the longest No. 1 trajectory since "21," but this week's chart should change that.

The soundtrack is expected to top Shakira's self-titled new album, which came out this week and is expect to sell 80,000 copies -- her largest debut to date. Johnny Cash's posthumous "Out Among the Stars" should take the No. 3 spot, industry forecasters predict.

"Frozen" doesn't face the stiffest of competition in the coming weeks either, so its reign could continue. Tyler, the Creator, Martina McBride, Jason Derülo and the Pixies are among the acts with new albums out in April. We called it back in February, but here's further proof that the first quarter of 2014 is a lame one for new music.
