On the charts, it’s Disney’s world, and everyone else just lives in it.
This week, the soundtrack to Disney’s “Encanto,” featuring songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is the No. 1 album for the seventh time, while the song “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is its fifth No. 1 on the singles chart.
The album’s songs have fallen, although with little major competition lately, “Encanto” has easily remained at the top. According to MRC Data, Billboard’s tracking arm, the soundtrack had the equivalent of 90,000 sales in the United States in the last week, including 115 million streams and 11,000 copies sold as a complete package. At its peak, about a month ago, songs from “Encanto” were pulling about 140 million clicks a week on streaming services.
“Encanto” sails above Gunna (No. 2) and Morgan Wallen (No. 3) albums, each with approximately 41,000 equivalent sales. “The Highlights,” a hit compilation by The Weeknd released a year ago to take advantage of its halftime performance from the Super Bowl LV show, is number 4. Another nearly a year old album, Olivia Rodrigo’s “Sour” , is in fifth place .
The highest grossing new album is “2 Alive” by Oregon rapper Yeat, which features guest appearances from Young Thug and Gunna. It opens at number 6 with 32,000 sales – barely a third of the “Encanto” total – including 45 million streams.
