Encanto's 'We Don't Talk About Bruno' Passes Another Popular Disney Song On The Charts

We Don’t Talk About Bruno” has become a runaway hit for Disney!

The song from the Encanto movie soundtrack shot up the charts after the movie came out and it’s still climbing.

It was just revealed this week that the track, performed by Carolina Gaitán (Pepa), Mauro Castillo (voice of Félix), Adassa (Dolores), Rhenzy Feliz (Camilo), Diane Guerrero (Isabela) and Stephanie Beatriz (Mirabel), has reached No 4 on the Billboard Hot 100!

The soundtrack is also currently sitting at No 3 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart, but the track’s ranking ties it for the second highest rank for a song from a Disney animated film ever.

“Bruno” is now tied with “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from The Lion King and “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas at No 4. Above those is “A Whole New World” from Aladdin, which reached No 1 in March 1993.

The most recent Disney animated song to reach the top five on the Billboard chart was the ever so popular “Let It Go” from Frozen, which reached a peak of No 5 in April 2014.

“Every verse and every stanza introduce a different character,” songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda previously said about “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.” “They’re all riding the same musical landscape, but they ride it completely differently. Everyone sings the same chord progression with a totally different rhythm and a totally different cadence.”

The Encanto soundtrack previously topped the albums chart last week, after debuting at No 197 in December. WOW!

With the soundtrack being so popular, and especially “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” being a fan-favorite, it’s not likely that the track will be nominated for a 2022 Oscar.

According to Variety, Disney reportedly only submitted the song “Dos Oruguitas” from the movie to be in contention for a Best Original Song nomination.

The deadline for nominations was also back on November 1st, three weeks before Encanto even premiered in theaters.

When it comes to the Oscars though, Encanto could still pick up a prize, as it is reportedly a frontrunner for Best Animated Feature, and the film’s composer Germaine Franco is among 15 names on the shortlist for Best Original Score!
