    There's nothing wrong with hip-hop/R&B/pop, but I wish you had mixed it up a bit more. The closest thing you have to a rock song on here is Nickelback. Ew.

    Before the "Frozen is so overrated" comments come flooding in, as a Disney fan that grew up in the 90's that had a very hard time accepting any post-2000 Disney movie as "great", Frozen did it for me. I seriously think you can put it in the same category as the 90's classics, I only think it's overrated because of the non-stop coverage it got coming out in the social media age. The same thing would've happened to Little Mermaid, BatB, Aladdin, Lion King etc. if the decades were flip flopped.
