Way to go Encanto! The movie seems to be shattering records left and right. Just this morning, the song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” reached yet another record breaking accomplishment in the music world.
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno”
Have you ever wondered why the song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” from the movie Encanto has caused such a massive social phenomena on social media and in the music world? This is the very topic that I taught about in my Sociology class last week while teaching about Research Methods.
I feel like this song has great influence because the song is relatable. Even my students who haven’t watched the the film connected with the song. They mentioned that they have seen countless renditions of the fun song on Tik Tok and Instagram.
Lin Manuel Miranda, composer of the hit song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” must be all smiles today. His song has reached another milestone in the music world.
Recently, the song surpassed the ever-so-popular song, “Let it Go,” as the highest ranking Disney song on the charts. “Let it go” reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 list in 2014.
When “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” reached number 4 on the Billboard list earlier this month, the song already had 29 million streams, and over 8,000 downloads sold.
Fast forward to last week and the song had been streamed 34.9 million times, 12,300 downloads and 1.5 million radio airplay time. For someone, that we were not allowed to talk about, quite the opposite has occurred!
No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 List
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” from Disney’s Encanto, has now reached the coveted the number one spot on the Billboard charts!
The song performed by Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the Encanto Cast is now the second Billboard No. 1 song from a Disney animated film. The other song came from the animated Disney film, Aladdin.
“A Whole New World” by Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle spent a week at number one in 1993.
As “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” takes the number one song spot, the Encanto soundtrack as a whole has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart for a third week.
I wonder, what the Madrigal family thinks, especially Abuelita, of this new magical talent!
