Okay, “we don’t talk about Bruno,” but can we keep talking about how popular that song continues to be?
Only days after dethroning “Let it Go” from Frozen as the highest-charted Disney song, we now know that “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” has also gained massive popularity outside of America. Lin-Manuel’s group number which features performances from Rhenzy Feliz, Adassa, Stephanie Beatriz, Mauro Castillo, Diane Guerrero, and Carolina Gaitan has become the first Disney song ever to chart #1 in the United Kingdom.
According to officialcharts.com,
In a chart first tonight, We Don’t Talk About Bruno, from the new hit Disney musical Encanto, soars to Number 1 on the UK’s Official Singles Chart – becoming the first ever original Disney song to do so in the chart’s 70-year history, the Official Charts Company can confirm.
Racking up 6.3 million streams in the UK this week, We Don’t Talk About Bruno marks both Disney’s and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first ever original soundtrack song to reach Number 1 on the Official Chart.
But “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” wasn’t the only song from Encanto, to make the UK’s top 5. “Surface Pressure,” performed by Jessica Darrow, also joined its filmmate in the prestigious position, peaking at #5.
“We’re so proud of the success of the movie and soundtrack,” said Lee Jury, Senior Vice President, Studios Marketing, Music Group & Stage Shows EMEA at Disney. “Having two tracks in the Top 5 is more than we ever could have expected.. may the success continue!”
Disney’s Encanto is available for streaming right now on Disney+.
