"FROZEN" - Elsa

A No. 1 next week would be the album's sixth nonconsecutive week atop the chart

The soundtrack to "Frozen" is flirting with a return to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week.

Industry sources suggest the album might sell upwards of 80,000 to 90,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, March 16.

That could be enough to fend off the week's biggest new release, Luke Bryan's "Spring Break 6… Like We Ain't Ever" EP. The latter six-song set -- part of Bryan's long-running spring break-themed EP series -- may sell around 70,000.

The new Billboard 200's top 10 will be revealed on March 19.

Last year, Bryan topped the Billboard 200 twice, with a compilation of his earlier Spring Break EPs titled "Spring Break… Here to Party," and with his most recent studio album, "Crash My Party."

If "Frozen" returns to No. 1, it will mark the sixth nonconsecutive week atop the list for the album. "Frozen" is already the longest-running No. 1 soundtrack since "Titanic" logged 16 straight weeks at No. 1 in 1998.

After Bryan, next week's highest debut will likely be Aloe Blacc's "Life Your Spirit," with maybe 40,000.
