We Don't Talk About Bruno

The Encanto soundtrack is sitting at the top spot for albums. 


We Don't Talk About Bruno, the hit song from Disney's animated feature Encanto, has hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.  It's only the second song from a Disney animated feature to top the chart, after A Whole New World from Aladdin in 1994, Billboard said Monday.

"We're gonna be talking about this for a LONG time!" Disney Plus posted on Instagram on Monday night. "Congratulations to Lin-Manuel Miranda, the cast of Disney's Encanto, and of course, Bruno, on landing at No. 1 on this week's Billboard Hot 100 with 'We Don't Talk About Bruno'!"

We Don't Talk About Bruno, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton and Disney's animated feature Moana, was streamed 34.9 million times in the US the week of Jan. 21-27, Billboard said.
