Transcript for By the Numbers: 'Encanto’s' ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ beats 'Frozen’s' ‘Let it Go’
- Now to a music milestone. The breakout song, "We Don't Talk About Bruno" from Disney's Encanto has outperformed the Oscar-winning hit "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen. Tonight we're going to talk about "Bruno" by the numbers. "Bruno" hit number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, becoming the highest charting song from a Disney animated film in more than 26 years. The song was written by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and sung by multiple cast members.
According to Billboard, it drew 29 million streams and sold 8,000 downloads this week. And this week, "Bruno" overtook "Let It Go," which, as we remember, played on repeat in the homes and cars across America, and will now no doubt be an earworm stuck in your head for the rest of the day. It peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. 1995 was the last time until now that a Disney song hit number four. It was Vanessa Williams' "Colors of the Wind" from the movie Pocahontas. The other Disney song the hit number four was Elton John's "Can You Feel the love Tonight" from The Lion King back in 1994.
And the Disney song that topped them all, "A Whole New World" from Aladdin, which hit number one in 1993. And we do want to mention that Disney is, of course, the parent company of ABC News.
