We don’t know about you, but we can’t seem to shut up about Bruno Madrigal! “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” from the Golden Globe winning Encanto, has reached the No. 1 spot on the UK Singles Chart, making it the first time an original Disney soundtrack song has ever occupied the top position. 

Actress Stephanie Beatriz, who many know as the voice of Mirabel in the film, took to Instagram to share a photo of herself with her Official Charts trophy. Her caption reads: “Beyond thrilled that so many people connect with #ENCANTO and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s amazing music! Excited to celebrate and accept this honor of ‘Bruno’ reaching #1 in the UK… on behalf of the gorgeous voices of @lagaita @maurocastillomc @rhenzyfeliz @dianexguerrero @adassaofficial @officialolgamerediz who absolutely SHINE in this song!! #wedonttalkaboutbruno

The song has previously brought in many milestones, besides going viral on every social media platform. It reached no. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, beating out its predecessor, Frozen‘s “Let It Go,” which peaked at No. 5.

One of the greatest parts of the success of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and the entire “Encanto” soundtrack is how much visibility is given to the Colombian and other Latine communities, bringing us all together with a swell of pride for all the recognition it’s being showered with.  

Take this tweet, which featured one of the best memes that best represents how social media has taken to Encanto.

One Twitter user wrote: “WE DON’T TALK ABOUT BRUNO NO NO”, and we can only hope that Kris Jenner is as excited about this achievement as we are.

It’s no secret that “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” has become a cultural phenomenon that will be on repeat for the foreseeable future. After all of these achievements, we’re sure that this Twitter user’s prediction will soon come to fruition.

I mean, it’s already at No.4… Can it move up all the way to the top spot? In the meantime, we’re over here manifesting a “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” No. 1.
