Megan Thee Stallion Creates Brand New Verse for ‘We’re Not Talking About Bruno’ at 2022 Oscars


Megan you stallion speaks, it seems, of Bruno. The Grammy-winning artist has joined the cast of Encanto at the 2022 Oscars for the first live performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”. John Leguizamo (who voices Bruno) presented the splashy performance, which included Encanto stars Adassa, Stephanie Beatriz, Mauro Castillo, Carolina Gaitán, and Diana Guerrero, alongside the musicians Becky G and Luis Fonsi.

Showcasing the colorful staging, Leguizamo poked fun at the song’s earworm status. “I’m sure you’ve heard this song before,” he said, adding, “It’s played more times than ‘Happy Birthday’. So please take it away, fam. EncantoThe hit has already had quite a cultural footprint, topping Billboard’s Hot 100 and becoming a frequent TikTok movie soundtrack. Given her influence, Megan Thee Stallion lent her star power to the performance, rapping an original verse for the song.

To the surprise of many, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” wasn’t nominated for the Best Original Song Oscar because Disney didn’t even submit the track for consideration. Instead, the studio submitted the Spanish language ballad “Dos Oruguitas”, which was performed by Sebastien Yatra during the broadcast. This song, written (as “Bruno”) by Lin-Manuel Miranda, was nominated for Best Original Song alongside Beyonce and co-author Dixson for “Be Alive” by King Richard, Van Morrison“Down to Joy”, from Belfast; Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell“No Time to Die” No time to die; and Diane Warren“Somehow You Do”, by Four good days, sung by Reba McEntire.

One person who was unfortunately absent for these performances was Miranda himself, who tweeted Saturday that his wife had tested positive for COVID-19. Although he and his children tested negative, “out of an abundance of caution, I will not be going to the Oscars tomorrow night,” Miranda wrote, adding that he would support Encanto and his directorial debut, Tick, tick… Boom!, from afar.
