Frozen II logs its 27th week at No. 1 on Billboard's Soundtracks chart, which is the fifth longest run since the chart originated in June 2001.

It trails the first Frozen (44 weeks at No. 1 in 2013-14), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (34 weeks in 2001-02), The Greatest Showman (32 weeks in 2018-19) and Moana (31 weeks in 2016-17).

Frozen II this week pulls ahead of two heavyweight soundtracks that each logged 26 weeks at No. 1 -- A Star Is Born (headlined by Oscar winner Lady Gaga and multiple Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper) and High School Musical.

Four of these seven soundtracks – the two Frozen albums, Moana and High School Musical-- were released on Walt Disney Records.

Frozen and Frozen II have topped the Soundtracks chart for a combined 71 weeks so far -- more than the combined total for any other franchise in the history of the chart. The next four franchises in terms of most cumulative weeks at No. 1 on the Soundtracks chart are Hannah Montana (57 weeks), High School Musical (45 weeks), Glee (42 weeks) and The Twilight Saga (33 weeks).

Frozen won a Grammy for best compilation soundtrack for visual media in February 2015. If Frozen II also wins in that category when the 63rd annual Grammy Awards are presented on Jan. 31, Frozen will be the first franchise to win twice since the category was introduced in 1999.
