We might not talk about Bruno, but people are definitely talking about the Encanto soundtrack.
The latest Disney animated film is enchanting viewers and listeners, with the Lin-Manuel Miranda-led soundtrack topping the Billboard 200 albums chart this week after initially debuting on the chart at No. 197 back in November. On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith discuss the rise of the catchy songs — including the No. 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” — as well as the history of Disney soundtracks on the Billboard 200.
Encanto is just the sixth animated film soundtrack to ever top the chart, and the fifth from Disney, with the most recent being Frozen II in 2019 and Frozen in 2014. What else topped the chart? And which legendary soundtracks didn’t make it to No. 1? Listen to this week’s show below to find out:
Also on the show, we’ve got chart news about Adele’s “Easy on Me” returning to No. 1 on the Hot 100, Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” hitting the top five for the first time, as well as Elton John and Dua Lipa’s “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” and Kodak Black’s “Super Gremlin” reaching the top 10 for the first time.
We also take a look at the constantly shifting awards season landscape, between this past weekend’s Golden Globes going off the grid and the Grammys moving from Jan. 31 to the spring. What does it all mean for the idea of this 2022 “awards season”?
