"We Don't Talk About Bruno" is a song from Disney's 2021 animated feature film Encanto, with music and lyrics written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It was released by Walt Disney Records as part of the film's soundtrack on November 19, 2021. The song is an ensemble number, performed by the film's voice cast members: mainly Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero and Stephanie Beatriz, and a few others in minor roles. A viral sensation, "We Don't Talk About Bruno" has been described as one of the best Disney songs and the studio's biggest crossover success.Consisting of gossips and anecdotes about Mirabel Madrigal's ostracised uncle, Bruno Madrigal, whose gift for prophecy has been associated with misfortune and has left him estranged from the rest of the Madrigals, "We Don't Talk About Bruno" sees some of the family members and the townsfolk explain to Mirabel why they do not talk about Bruno. The song insinuates that Bruno is villainous, which is central to the film's plot. It sheds the narrative styles of conventional Disney villain songs by listing the protagonists' perspectives of the villain. Musically, "We Don't Talk About Bruno" eschews Disney's traditional formula of a sentimental ballad performed by a solo character, opting for a subdued, mid tempo tune blending Latin music styles such as salsa and guajira with pop, hip hop, dance and broadway elements, sung by an ensemble and climaxing in a polyphonic outro."We Don't Talk About Bruno" was met with universal acclaim from music critics, who praised Miranda's craftsmanship and the song's mystery element, catchy rhythm, versatile composition, ensemble of singers, and lyrical personality. A commercial success, "We Don't Talk About Bruno" peaked at number one in Ireland, the United Kingdom and United States, and inside the top 10 in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. "We Don't Talk About Bruno" is the only Disney song of the 21st-century to reach number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, as well as the first-ever original Disney song to top the UK Singles Chart. It broke the all-time record for the most credited singers (seven) on a Hot 100 chart-topper, and earned them and Miranda the first number-one song of their careers. The Fluffy Hat Music Co. present an arrangement for concert band, that will surely be an ear worm for any listener!
