The soundtrack to Disney's "Frozen," fueled by Easter shopping, earns its biggest sales week yet and 11th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

The album sold 259,000 copies in the week ending April 20, according to Nielsen SoundScan. (The Easter holiday was April 20.) That's up 94 percent compared with the previous week, when the album shifted 133,000 at No. 1. This is also the fifth consecutive week that Frozen sold more than 100,000 copies. To date, the album has sold 2.3 million.
