Lin Manuel Miranda says one of his family members is DONE with Bruno’s song from “Encanto”

This week, the most popular song from Disney’s Encanto soundtrack made big news nationally by beating a record held since 1994 and 1995, but that doesn’t mean it’s sitting well with everyone.

According to Billboard.com, the most well-known song from Encanto has finally topped “Let It Go” from Disney’s 2013 smash, Frozen. “Let It Go,” performed by actress and singer Idina Menzel, who voices Queen Elsa throughout the film as well, made it as high up the Billboard Top 100 chart as No. 5. This week, however, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from Disney’s latest animated feature surpassed the icy single and secured a spot on Billboard’s chart at No. 4, a feat “Let It Go” was not able to achieve.

“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is now tied for the highest-ranking song from a Disney animated film on Billboard’s chart with “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” from Disney’s 1994 The Lion King and “Colors of the Wind,” from Disney’s 1995 Pocahontas, both of which achieved the No. 4 spot on the chart once upon a time.

And while the success of the song aimed at reminding the Madrigal family not to mention Bruno’s name is great for Disney and great for the writer of the song, Lin Manuel Miranda, there are some close to the film who have had just about enough of the song.

“My son came home from school today and he was like, ‘Daddy, everyone’s singing it,'” Miranda explained. “He’s both proud and like, ‘All right, already.’ Because remember, he heard that song last May.”

Miranda shares sons Sebastian, 7, and Francisco, 3, with his wife, Vanessa Nadal. It’s Sebastian, his older son, who’s heard “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” just about as many times as he can stand. It sounds like he wishes we also wouldn’t sing about Bruno.

According to his father, Lin Manuel Miranda, Sebastian is “way over it.”

In an interview with PEOPLE, Miranda says he was shocked by the success of the song and sees it as a bit random that the wild success would be from “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

“I’m surprised [the most popular song is] ‘Bruno,'” Miranda explains. “I feel like [‘Bruno’] is my ‘Send in the Clowns,’ which was the late Stephen Sondheim’s biggest hit and probably the most random of an incredible career and life making music. But I’ll take it!”

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
