The grip that the Encanto soundtrack currently has on the world is not letting up anytime soon! In fact, the already record-breaking soundtrack has just hit another incredible chart milestone, thanks to the song 'Surface Pressure'.
'Surface Pressure' (also known as the Stressed Eldest Daughter Anthem™️) has officially broken into Billboard's Hot 100 top 10, where it's currently sitting at No. 10.
The undeniable bop, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and sung by Luisa Madrigal voice actor Jessica Darrow, is now the second song from Encanto to chart inside the top 10. That achievement now means that Encanto is the first Disney animated movie ever (!) to have multiple songs chart within the top 10.
The movie's runaway hit, 'We Don't Talk About Bruno,' is also still climbing the charts. The soundtrack as a whole is alsoo No. 1 on Billboard's 200 chart.
'We Don't Talk About Bruno' made history in the UK last week when it became the first song from an animated Disney film to reach the No. 1 spot on the charts.
In the US, 'Bruno' has shot up to No. 2 on Billboard's Hot 100 and is now the second highest charting Disney song of all time. Aladdin's 'A Whole New World' is the only Disney song to have gone further, reaching No. 1 in 1993.
Last week, 'Bruno' overtook Frozen's 'Let It Go' when it charted at No. 4, matching the success of The Lion King's 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' by Elton John (No. 4 in 1994) and Pocahontas' 'Colors of the Wind' by Vanessa Williams (No. 4 in 1995).
Only time will tell if 'Bruno' manages to secure that No. 1 spot, and whether or not 'Surface Pressure' can climb even higher.
Now, while we're all here, what are everyone's plans to make sure Mirabel's opening banger, 'The Family Madrigal,' gets into the top 10 too?
