UPDATE: The soundtrack for Disney's Oscar frontrunner "Frozen" continues to climb the Billboard 200 chart, currently at number eight.

Meanwhile, the film is still holding strong at the box office, with domestic grosses at $250 million. Stream the soundtrack on Spotify here.

EARLIER: Disney has released a clip from the centerpiece of "Frozen": Idina Menzel's Queen Elsa -- aka the Snow Queen -- singing "Let It Go," as she learns to accept her chilly nature. Watch below, along with the full-length audio of the song and a humorous clip in which Kristen Bell's Anna makes her way into a department store tavern of sorts, looking for winter boots -- and also news of the Snow Queen. As it turns out, the shop's having a "big summer blowout." 

Disney's return to the princess musical is the Oscar frontrunner and so is this song, belted by theater veteran Menzel, who as you may recall, played the Wicked Witch in "Wicked." There's also an element of that angry, sad, powerful, lonely sorceress out of control in this role of a princess isolated by her magical abilities to freeze the world around her. She sings this song after she flees to the mountains and, free to unleash her powers, builds a magnificent ice palace.
