“We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” the surprise hit from the “Encanto” soundtrack, has become the first song from a Disney film to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since “A Whole New World.” ‘Aladdin’ did it in 1993.

It joins the “Encanto” album itself as a hit as the animated film’s soundtrack continues to top the Billboard 200 chart for the third time in the past four weeks, variété.com reports.

Some other stats Billboard noted: “Bruno,” written solely by Lin-Manuel Miranda, becomes the first Hot 100 chart to be written by a solo writer in over four years, while Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” was the last.

It is the first time that a tune by Miranda has topped the charts. And it’s only the second time a Disney song has made it to the top, as “A Whole New World” was the only one to do it before.

And it did this with almost no radio play, which is highly unusual for a chart where spins play a significant factor.

The ascent of ‘Bruno’ made it difficult for Adele’s ‘Easy on Me’, who was eventually forced to relinquish the number 1 spot on the Hot 100 after a 10-week run at the top. ‘Easy on Me’ slipped to number 2.

Bruno, meanwhile, pulled in 34.9 million streams in the US, which is more than twice the number of Adele’s long-running hit, but a paltry 1.5 million radio airplay audience impresses at about 1/62nd the number of Adele’s radio power.

Still, with radio up 239 percent for the week, it’s clear that at least a few more stations are starting to try “Bruno” for a spot in their playlists.

Last week’s tracks 3-8 remain frozen in place, led by Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” at number 3.

Gayle’s song “abcdefu” is at number 8 on the Hot 100, as it was last week, but it is number 1 for its fourth week on two major international Billboard charts, the Global 200 and the Global Excl. American chart.

On the Billboard 200 album chart, “Encanto” remained at the top with 115,000 album equivalents. That’s 11 percent up from the previous week, and the best weekly total to date, as the album continues to climb in percentages week after week.

Two albums debuted in the top 10: Youngboy Never Broke Again’s ‘Colors’, at number 2, and country star Walker Hayes’s ‘Country Stuff: The Album’ at number 9. The first album boasted 79,000 album-equivalent units and the latter’s first complete album. album since breaking out with ‘Fancy Like’ came in with 33,000. For Hayes, it’s time in the top 10 on the album chart.

In their third week out, Gunna’s and The Weeknd’s new albums fell one spot each, at number 3-4, respectively.

Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out of Hell” was considered an opportunity to return to the top 10 after his death, but didn’t quite make it.
