We’re not talking about Bruno from the 2021 animated movie Encanto that took first place on the Billboard 100 chart.
The catchy song was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and sung by Encanto members Carolina Gittan, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Renzi Velez, Diane Guerrero and Stephanie Beatriz.
But the tune won’t be able to win an Oscar this year because it wasn’t submitted for racing. Instead, the movie’s theme song Dos Oruguitas was entered.
