They may not want to “talk about Bruno” in the movie Encanto, but tons of people around the world are listening to the song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”
Emmy, Tony, and Golden Globe award winner Lin-Manual Miranda wrote eight original songs for Encanto along with the score from Germaine Franco.
The song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” moved up the Billboard 200 from Number 110 to Number 7 during the week of December 30, 2021. The Encanto album is number 1 on Billboard’s Soundtrack and Independent Album list.
Certain songs on the album are really blowing up such as “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and “Surface Pressure.” “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is currently the number 1 song on Spotify’s Top 50 US chart.
As of December 28th, 2021 the song was the number 1 music video on YouTube.
On Amazon, both songs are in the top songs played with 2.3 million voice requests in the last 7 days.
On iTunes, the soundtrack is the number 1 album and the two aforementioned songs are in positions 2 and 3 on the charts.
Another song on the album, “Dos Oruguitas,” is in the running for an Oscar for Best Original Song aside 14 other eligible songs. If the song wins the Oscar, Lin-Manuel Miranda would hold the highly coveted EGOT. An EGOT is a person who has an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and a Tony – all the major awards in the industry.
The Oscar slipped out of his fingers with “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana being beat out by “City of Stars” from La La Land.
You can now stream Encanto on Disney+ and can get the DVD or Blu-ray on February 8th in stores. Some theaters are still playing the movie as well.
