Top 15

YOUR TOP 15: As the Frozen DVD flies out of stores by the boatload—the latest projections have it finishing the week with an astounding 7-10 million—the soundtrack album is set to rule next week’s chart with a total that will likely exceed twice what it sold last week. In the modern chart era, the Frozen soundtrack is well on its way to setting a record for the most units gained by a soundtrack in the week of the film’s home video release, increasing by more than 100k. Previously, The Lion King and Twilight were leaders with increases of 50-55k.

Here’s how it looks headed into the weekend:

Frozen (Walt Disney) 200-225k
* YG (CTE/Def Jam/IDJ) 55-60k
* Foster the People (Columbia) 55-60k
* Skrillex (Big Beat/Atlantic) 45-50k
Pharrell Williams (Columbia) 30-35k
* The Pretty Reckless (Razor & Tie) 28-32k
Rick Ross (Def Jam/IDJ) 25-28k
Lorde (Lava/Republic) 21-24k
* Enrique Iglesias (Republic) 19-22k
Now 49 (NOW) 19-22k
* Taking Back Sunday (Hopeless) 19-22k
Luke Bryan (Capitol Nashville) 18-21k
Eric Church (EMI Nashville) 16-18k
Beyonce (Columbia) 16-18k
* Kevin Gates (Atlantic) 15-17k
Aloe Blacc (XIX/Interscope) 15-17k
Florida Georgia Line (Republic Nashville) 15-17k

* Debuts
