Disney gave us another must-see animated film with Encanto, a story of a young girl who must face the crushing disappointment of being the only member of her family without a magical gift. This film gave us an epic soundtrack, and here’s why everyone is obsessed with it right now.
The original songs featured in Encanto were written by none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of hit musicals In the Heights and Hamilton, and everything the touches turns to gold.
Encanto soundtrack gave us several viral hits, but none of them comes even close to “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”. It reached number one on US Spotify and iTunes, peaked at no. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, and became a huge hit on TikTok.
Film’s soundtrack reached the top spot on the US Billboard 200 chart, marking the first Disney soundtrack since Frozen II and only sixth in history to do so. In addition to “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”, five more songs from this album entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Encanto is in contention for many accolades this awards season and it’s receiving major recognition for its score and original songs. “Dos Oruguitas” received the best original song nod at several major award shows, including Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards.
