Lin-Manuel Miranda is making U.K. chart history…
The 42-year-old Puerto Rican actor, singer-songwriter, playwright, and film director’s Encanto soundtrack has produced another U.K. singles chart achievement as the album’s hit single “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” notches another week at No. 1 on Official U.K. Singles Chart.
While “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” enters a third week at No. 1, another two Encanto album tracks impact the Top 10: “Surface Pressure” by Jessica Darrow (holding at No. 4) and “The Family Madrigal” (up 11-7).
In the process, Encanto becomes the first animated film soundtrack in U.K. chart history to simultaneously chart three songs in the Top 10. The collection already made history when “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” became the first original Disney number to lead the chart.
Meanwhile, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is on track to notch a fourth consecutive week at No. 1 on the U.K singles chart. Based on sales and streaming data accumulated from the first 48 hours in the chart week, the song will lock up another chart crown.
The Official U.K. Singles Chart is unveiled late Friday, local time.
The ensemble song, written by Miranda, is performed by Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the Encanto cast.
