Idina Menzel has a monster hit on her hands with "Let It Go," a powerful, snow-flurry track from Disney's blockbuster animated film Frozen. Currently resting in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, the song gets a jolt of club beats, courtesy of production crew Papercha$er, who has previously concocted outrageous versions of Rihanna's "Where Have You Been?" and Fifth Harmony's "Miss Movin' On."

Much like most remixes, the revamped "Let It Go" make it far less serious, especially outside of the context of the film. It's far more lighthearted, taking on a while new meaning of epic proportions. This new delightful version will be promoted to dance clubs and DJs beginning on Friday (March 21), via Disney Music Group.

The home album, released last November, is the first million-selling record of 2014 and stands at the top of Billboard 200 for a sixth non-consecutive week. It's projected to move another 200,000 copies, end of the tracking week on Sunday, March 23.

Frozen came close to this sales total with the Jan. 5 tracking week, having moved a whopping 165,000 units. To-date, the soundtrack has moved. 1.4 million copies.

On a similar note, the film set brick-and-mortar stores on fire this week, following its March 18 date, with the Blu-ray and DVD release. Reportedly, 3.2 million copies were sold on the first day. That makes it the best-selling kids movie since Despicable Me.

Previously, Menzel has scored several dance club hits, including re-imagined versions of "Take Me Or Leave Me" (from RentWicked, which reached No. 5 in 2007.
