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!”
