Watch Megan Thee Stallon Join the Cast of ‘Encanto’ for a Rendition of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”

 

“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” has been one of the hottest songs in the country. Megan Thee Stallon has just jumped on the track.

For the last couple of months, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” — which is featured in Encanto — has been one of the hottest songs in the country, spending weeks at No. 1 on top of the US Billboard Hot 100. Now it looks like that song has a remix.

A “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” remix featuring Megan Thee Stallion was just premiered at the 2022 Oscars. The performance was done by Stephanie Beatriz and the Encanto cast. (Miranda was not able to attend the Oscars after his wife tested positive for COVID-19. )

The remix was not previously announced so when Meg popped up and started rapping it was quite a surprise.

Megan made her debut at the Oscars this year but there’s a chance she could be returning within the next couple of years. Earlier this week, Roc Nation announced that it was teaming up with Time Studios to release a documentary about the star rapper. Nneka Onuorah, who previously directed the HBO documentary “Legends of the Underground”, will be behind the camera for this one.

In a press release, Loren Hammonds, Time Studios’ co-head of documentary, said:

“We are thrilled to be able to work with Roc Nation to share Megan’s story with the world. Millions of people are familiar with her as an entertainer, but this series will give her a chance to share her truth as never before. Her story is a powerful one, and the accomplishments that she continues to achieve are remarkable. We feel lucky to have this opportunity to capture her at a crucial moment in her life and career, as she continues to grow exponentially in both her artistry and global impact.”
