Fans can't get enough of Encanto's catchy songs.

The Disney animated film debuted in theaters on Nov. 24 before becoming available to stream on Disney+ a month later on Dec. 24.

With songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda (think Hamilton and Moana's irresistible tunes), the Encanto soundtrack has now become the first soundtrack to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts since another Disney movie, Frozen II, did back in December 2019. It displaced Adele's 30 for the top spot after her album held No. 1 for six weeks.

"We Don't Talk About Bruno" and "Surface Pressure" are currently the breakout songs from Encanto, according to Billboard's data

Encanto is only the sixth animated film soundtrack to make it to No. 1 since Billboard began regularly publishing stats. The others are Curious George (2006) and several Disney films: The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas (1995), Frozen (2014) and Frozen II.

On Sunday, Encanto won best animated film at the Golden Globes.

The film's magical story is about the extraordinary Madrigal family, who live in the secluded mountains of Colombia in a magical house called Encanto. The magic of the home has blessed every family member with special and unique gifts ranging from super-strength to speaking with animals to healing — except for one person: Mirabel.
