“We’re gonna be talking about this for a LONG time!” Disney Plus posted on Instagram Monday night. “Congratulations to Lin Manuel Miranda, the cast of Disney’s Encanto, and of course, Bruno, on landing at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 with ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’!”

We Don’t Talk About Bruno, which was written by Lin Manuel Miranda of Hamilton and Disney’s animated feature Moana, has been streamed 34.9 million times in the US during the week of Jan. 21-27, Billboard said.
