In a particularly cold climate? for music sales, Frozen broke virtually every Hollywood rule — no “prince charming” narrative or genre trends — to become the year’s biggest ­phenomenon. The soundtrack moved more than 3 million copies, making it the best-selling album of 2014, and produced an out-of-the-box hit for Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go,” which surpassed a pop version by Demi Lovato to become the first original Disney song to reach the Hot 100’s top 10 since 1995.

Idina Menzel, cast member, Elsa; performer, “Let It Go”: Early on, the Elsa character was written as this very conventional nemesis in a Disney movie, this witchy character. The credit is with the Lopezes, who got this idea and wrote a song about her powers and embracing who she is and being comfortable with how to harness her power.

Robert Lopez, co-writer, “Let It Go”; soundtrack composer:Elsa’s situation reminded me of the first time you fail a test as a straight-A student and everything goes out the window.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez, co-writer, “Let It Go”; soundtrack composer: I took that further to reflect how women feel every day, that we’re under so much scrutiny to be thin and perfect.

Menzel: It showed this strong female character with a sense of self, but ?also emphasized to young girls how to find that voice.
