This week, Disney’s “Encanto” soundtrack notches its ninth, and possibly last, time on the top of the Billboard chart.اضافة اعلان

The “Encanto” album, with songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, like “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and “Surface Pressure,” that were amplified through TikTok into streaming blockbusters, holds the No. 1 spot with the equivalent of 72,500 sales in the US, including 93 million streams, according to the tracking service MRC Data.

That is the longest run on the Billboard 200 chart since Morgan Wallen’s “Dangerous: The Double Album,” which ruled for 10 weeks last year. But the numbers for “Encanto” have been slipping for weeks, and it may have finally met a challenger that could oust it: “7220,” by Chicago rapper Lil Durk, which was released Friday and is expected to make a splash on the next chart.

Also this week, “What It Means to Be King,” a posthumous album by King Von, who died in late 2020 at age 26, opened at No. 2 with the equivalent of 59,000 sales, including 79 million streams.

Wallen’s “Dangerous” holds at No. 3 in its 61st week on the chart; of those, 60 have been spent in the Top 10. Kodak Black’s “Back for Everything” is No. 4 and Gunna’s “DS4Ever” is No. 5.
