Carolina Gaitán is celebrating a global takeover…
The 37-year-old Colombian actress and singer and her Encanto castmember’s track “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” ascends to No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 dated February 12.
The track, which also features Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the Encanto cast, from Disney’s hit film, rises from No. 2 to No. 1 for its first week atop the Billboard Global 200.
The song drew 69.3 million streams (up 10%) and sold 19,000 (up 8%) worldwide in the January 28-February 3 tracking week.
Gaitán and Castillo become the first artists from Colombia to top the Global 200; Adassa, Feliz, Guerrero and Beatriz are all from the U.S. (with all singing as the characters that they voice in Encanto).
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” which Lin-Manuel Miranda solely wrote and co-produced with Mike Elizondo, also hits the Global Excl. U.S. top 10, rising 11-9 with 32.4 million streams (up 14%) and 4,400 sold (up 2%) outside the U.S. in the tracking week.
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” spends a second week at No. 1 on the U.S.-based Billboard Hot 100, while its parent album, the Encanto soundtrack, logs a fourth week at No. 1 on the U.S.-based Billboard 200.
Billboard‘s global charts rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by MRC Data. The Billboard Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the U.S.
Chart ranks are based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of audio and video music services, as well as download sales, the latter of which reflect purchases from full-service digital music retailers from around the world, with sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites excluded from the charts’ calculations.
