The soundtrack for the film Encanto ousted Adele from the first place

The soundtrack for “Encanto,” the new Disney animated film, peaked at number one on the Billboard charts, displacing Adele’s “30” after six weeks at the top.

The album “Encanto”, featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda’s songs based on salsa and hip-hop and performed on traditional Colombian instruments, was released in November – initially taking 197th place – and has steadily climbed to the top. … After the film’s release on Disney + on Christmas Eve, the soundtrack entered the Billboard Top 10.

One of his numbers, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” is currently the most watched song on Spotify, surpassing many new tracks on The Weeknd. (The Weeknd’s surprise album “Dawn FM”, released on Friday with just a few days’ notice, is expected to open huge numbers on next week’s chart.)

The Encanto soundtrack, which also features music excerpts from the film by Germaine Franco, sold 72,000 copies in the US last week, according to MRC Data, which tracks Billboard’s business. This total includes 88 million streams and 11,000 copies sold as a full package. “Encanto” is the first soundtrack to hit # 1 on the Billboard charts since “Frozen 2” at the end of 2019.

Adele’s “30” dropped to 2nd place, and Morgan Wallen’s “Dangerous: The Double Album” dropped to 3rd place in Week 52. While Wallen was publicly denounced by the music industry after he was videotaped with racist insults last year – he was not nominated for a Grammy – Dangerous has had huge success and enduring fan loyalty.

According to MRC, “Dangerous” became the most watched album of 2021 with the equivalent of 3.2 million in US sales – far ahead of “30” and other hits by Olivia Rodrigo and Drake. Since its release in January last year, “Dangerous” has remained in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart every week, except once last month, when it was supplanted by several Christmas albums.

Wallen plans to kick off the arena tour in February, including a date at Madison Square Garden on February 9th.

Also this week, Rodrigo’s “Sour” is ranked 4th, while Taylor Swift’s “Red” (Taylor’s version) is ranked 5th.
