“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” ranked 4th on Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart – the highest charting Disney song in over 26 years.
It came in at #5 last week – and it’s only been on the charts for three weeks.
What’s surprising is that the hugely popular “Let It Go” by “Frozen” was only able to reach #5 in April 2014.
According to Entertainment Weekly, only three other songs from Disney’s animated films made the top 5: Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle’s rendition of “A Whole New World” from “Aladdin” reached number one in 1993;” Can You Feel the “by Elton John Love Tonight” by “The Lion King” reached number 4 in 1994; and Vanessa Williams’ “Colors of the Wind” from “Pocahontas” peaked at #4 in 1995.
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is credited by Carolina Gaitan, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz, and the “Encanto” cast.
The soundtrack hit #1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart last week; it’s the first soundtrack to top the chart since “Frozen II” in 2019. EW reports that it’s only the sixth animated soundtrack in history to top the Billboard 200.
“Encanto” was also a box office hit. To date, it has earned more than $93 million in the US and over 200 million worldwide. It’s available on Disney+ during the holidays.
The film’s plot revolves around Mirabel, a young girl trying to find her place in a family where everyone else has magical powers except her. She and her family, the Madrigals, live in the mountains of Colombia in a magical house in a place called Encanto.
