CSPC: Frozen OST Popularity Analysis


Digital Singles Sales

Expectedly, there is no physical singles sales category for this era as that format was dead for long when the soundtrack came out. Digital sales were there though.

To be honest, this is extremely difficult to track sales of Frozen tracks. With Let It Go being released in various languages, finding it on charts gets really painful. For many markets, data is also completely missing. This impacts more the distribution between Complete Set tracks than the overall total which is on its side fairly under control.

All in all, that’s an amazing 29 million download sales for Frozen songs, an unbelievable result considering it really only had one single and that this song peaked at only #5 in the US, #11 in the UK, #16 in Australia and #18 in Canada. Its superb consistency during more than a year, the fact its sales were spread over various versions and its large worldwide appeal still created incredible totals.

Fully part of the Frozen franchise, Let It Go Complete Set sales will be added to the soundtrack in the final total.

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 1 ratio between one album and one digital single.

  1. Hi dear MJD !!!

    Congratulations for the website and also for CSPC analysis on Frozen Soundtrack.
    Then I’m curious to know after CSPC analysis on The Rolling Stones, which singer or group you will analyze. I hope you will answer me soon !!!

    1. Just wait and see!

      Nothing is frozen as of now, it will depend on my available time and what I’m willing to do when that available moment comes. I fully handle Chartmasters.org during my free time because I love studying charts and sales, I don’t want to commit on artists and dates as it would start looking more like a job rather than an entertainment and I would hate that!

  2. Hi everyone!

    Here are the 4 Frozen’s tracks that have generated the most sales:
    1 2013 Let It Go [Frozen] – 7,220,000
    2 2013 For The First Time In Forever [Frozen] – 1,620,000
    3 2013 Do You Want To Build A Snowman [Frozen] – 1,580,000
    4 2013 Love Is An Open Door [Frozen] – 1,100,000

    Like you probably remember, particularly if you have a children, “Let It Go” was an enormous hit! As a reminder, here are the biggest track for some recent artists:
    – Adele – Hello [25, 2015] – 15,730,000
    – Lady Gaga – Bad Romance [The Fame / The Fame Monster, 2009] – 4,700,000
    – Taylor Swift – Love Story [Fearless, 2008] – 4,560,000
    – Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud [x, 2014] – 4,250,000
    – Bruno Mars – Just the Way You Are [Doo-Wop & Hooligans, 2010] – 3,730,000
    – Rihanna – We Found Love [Talk That Talk, 2011] – 3,290,000
    – Katy Perry – Dark Horse [Prism, 2013] – 3,260,000
    – Justin Bieber – Sorry [Purpose, 2015] – 3,070,000
    – Drake – One Dance [Views, 2016] – 2,800,000

    Adele is again an exception! All the other tracks, which are real hits, cannot compete with “Let It Go”.

    If you have any questions / remarks, do not hesitate to let a comment!
