Encanto, the first soundtrack of a cartoon that reaches number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart after 2 years, leaving behind Adele
Disney's Encanto, with songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, has a soundtrack that climbed to the top of the Billboard 200 charts, replacing "30" by Adele who held No. 1 for six weeks.
The Disney animated film debuted in theaters on November 24 before becoming available for release on Disney + a month later, on December 24.
With songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda the Encanto soundtrack has now become the first soundtrack to reach number 1 in the Billboard 200 rankings since that of "Frozen II" in December 2019.
"We Do Not Talk About Bruno" and "Surface Pressure" are currently the main songs from 'Encanto', according to Billboard.
‘Encanto’ is the sixth soundtrack of the animated film that manages to position itself in first place since Billboard began publishing statistics regularly. Others are Curious George (2006) and some Disney movies: The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas (1995), Frozen (2014) and Frozen II.
On Sunday, Encanto won Best Animated Film at the Golden Globes.
The story of the film is about the Madrigal family, who live in the isolated mountains of Colombia in a magical house called Encanto. The magic of the house has blessed every member of the family with special and unique gifts, ranging from superpowers to talking to animals to healing with the exception of one person: Mirabel.
When Mirabel discovers that the magic surrounding Encanto is in jeopardy, she discovers that she may be her family's only hope.
