Carolina Gaitán & Her “Encanto” Cast Members Make Disney History with “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” Track’s Third Week at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Carolina Gaitán is still a woman on top…

The 37-year-old Colombian actress and singer and her Encanto cast mates’ track “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” tops the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for a third week.


The ensemble track – by Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the Encanto cast (all singing as the characters that they voice in the hot animated film) – ties for the most weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 ever for a hit from a Disney movie, animated or live-action, matching the three-week reign of “All for Love,” by Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart and Sting, from The Three Musketeers, in 1994.

“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” tallied 35.6 million U.S. streams (down 5%), 5.5 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 53%) and 8,400 downloads sold (down 38%) in the February 4-10 tracking week, according to MRC Data.

The song was aided by 69-cent discount pricing in the iTunes Store the prior two weeks.

The track tops the Streaming Songs chart for a sixth week and holds at No. 2 on Digital Song Sales, three weeks after it topped the latter list.

As “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” tops the Hot 100 for a third week, its parent album, the Encanto soundtrack, crowns the Billboard 200 albums chart for a fifth week (and fourth in a row), with 110,000 equivalent album units (down 2%).

Encanto and “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” mark the first soundtrack and corresponding song to have led the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 simultaneously for at least three weeks in over 26 years, since Dangerous Minds and Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise,” featuring L.V., aligned atop the respective rankings dated September 9, 16 and 23, 1995.


The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data.
