It’s another week of pure enchantment for Adassa…
The 35-year-old Afro-Colombian American singer and her Encanto castmember’s “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” has registered a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
The ensemble song – by Adassa, Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the Encanto cast (all singing as the characters that they voice in the movie) – becomes the first song from a Disney animated film to lead the Hot 100 for multiple weeks.
It one-ups the only other such song to have reigned: Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle’s Aladdin theme “A Whole New World,” which spent a week at No. 1 in 1993.
Meanwhile, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” logs its highest weekly totals yet in streaming, sales and radio airplay, as it reaches its first airplay charts: Pop Airplay and Adult Pop Airplay.
The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data.
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” drew new weekly bests of 37.6 million U.S. streams (up 8%), 3.6 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 132%) and 13,600 downloads sold (up 10%, aided by 69-cent discount pricing in the iTunes Store, and good for the Hot 100’s top Sales Gainer trophy for a second straight week) in the January 28-February 3 tracking week, according to MRC Data.
As “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” crowns the Hot 100 for a second week, its parent album, the Encanto soundtrack, tops the Billboard 200 albums chart for a fourth week (and third in a row), with 113,000 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 multiple weeks in over 19 years, since 8 Mile and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” ruled the respective rankings dated January 11 and 18, 2003. Before that, the last such multi-week double domination belonged to Titanic and Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” on the charts dated February 28 and March 7, 1998.
