14 December 2022 - Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the Encanto Cast - We Don't Talk About Bruno

It's not rare that a song from a Disney movie makes the pop charts.  

You can count on one hand the number of songs from Disney movies that topped the pop charts for five weeks.

Actually, you can count them on one finger, and it is this critically-acclaimed densely layered traditional Latin pop song.  Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda - the guy who wrote Hamilton, yes - it is a complex and extremely well-constructed song that moves forward the story of Encanto, a movie that Miranda was integrally involved in the development of (and we wrote the entire soundtrack).  

So many people - a who's-who of Latin actors and musicians (we will revisit several of them soon) - performed on this dense track - and we listed a lot of them, but there were more.  This is probably the longest WGP title ever, but I ain't apologizing.

Of course, for a song called "We Don't Talk About Bruno", they sure do talk a lot about Bruno.  

Because I did list out all those cast members and represented them with animation, it's only right that I give you a live performance, with the cast performing the song live at Disney's D23 Expo.  Notice how Rhenzy Feliz sings ALL the male parts.  

The cast made another appearance at the 2022 Oscars (the song wasn't nominated but c'mon).  It was introduced by John Leguizamo, who literally played Bruno.  Pay attention at the 1:45 mark.  No, Megan Thee Stallion was not in Encanto.
