Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal-every child except one, Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz). But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.

Oh you was re watching this too? lol
I comment early I cannot believe it
Luisa is an absolute girl boss, she’s the most relatable character to me in my opinion, change my mind
No I will not change ur mind
I actually found the vast majority of the Madrigals to be very relatable characters. Growing up in a loving family with lots of cousin contact made this movie very close to home for me.
Well I can't change your mind but the most relatable character to me is Bruno. We both live in the walls of someone's house and we haven't seen the light of day in years.
@Anthony Clay do you call that loving? Like actually?
Aubeula low-key guilt tripping over there
@Anthony Clay Sorry for the way I spelt you know the word
3:06 "Give it to your sister and never wonder if the same pressure would've pulled you under" is such a powerful line
Best line of the song! Despite some great competition.
The first time I heard this song, I felt so shocked, Lin articulated every experience I have as the oldest of four siblings. But that line hit song hard I couldn't cry because it took eveything out of me. I inhaled and BAWLED.
@Stacey Smith When he talked about writing this song in an interview he explained how it was first-hand experience growing up with his sister.
@Cat Streatwhere can I watch that interview?
@Stacey Smith Not just him but all of his team
“Give it to your sister and never wonder if the same pressure would’ve pulled you under” love this line
Fr made me cry
I was mesmerized by this song. But this line stood out for sure.
I found most recent female protagonists underwhelming or poorly written. But Encanto has pretty much all it's female characters masterfully written. I hope to get more of this kind of writing.
Sadly they aren't, now they just do mary sues
“I’m pretty sure I’m worthless if can’t be of service” is straight-up the rawest line I have ever heard in three decades of listening to music.
Guys you both need to start listening to better music
Luisa isn't Worthless She just Needs to Take one step at a Time
@Jalen Ikezeue they're not saying she's worthless, it's how she feels about herself
It's an amazing line, but dang you do need to find better music then
When I first heard this song last year, I cried my eyes out so hard. I relate HEAVILY to this song. The eldest Latina 🇵🇷 daughter taking care of a house that isn't mine that I pay for with my own money, taking care of my disabled brothers and my sick mom. I have the weight of the world on my shoulders and it sucks and often neglect myself. I need a vacation....
It hits different when you're the eldest! I felt so seen...
I am so sorry these responsibilities that you did not choose fell on you. You are so strong. I don't know you, but I can say I admire you so much.
BIG HUG! Eldest daughter too of immigrants. It's the toughest job that we did not pick!
I love how, even though Luisa is struggling with all of her pressure, she still, through the song, cares for Mirabel. Always catching the rocks before they fall, standing in front of the boulders, stopping to adjust her glasses, etc. It just shows her character and how good of a sister she is.
Yes everyone would like a big sister like Luisa
I need a sibling like her
Ikr i wish i had siblings like her
That side look she gives her sister when she is shouldering all that weight. Almost pleading for understanding as she expresses herself. This is powerful beyond just simple entertainment. Love it.
Mirabel's ability to give each of her family members their own musical number is beyond compare
I think one of my favorite things about this song is the way it both sounds like the process of trying to vent and explain the pressure without breaking down or being overwhelming to the other person AND shows the same thing in the scenes, Luisa is constantly Showing the pressure and what its like to be the strong one while Mirabel is barely able to keep up and is in a constant state of being in danger so Luisa needs to keep saving her to keep her safe from the burdens she didn't want her little sister to suffer from, with small breaks in pace to keep it from being too much. Then near the end she recovers and gets her confidence back to go back into being The strong one with all the confidence that worked before, and Mirabel while now safe with big sis has the residual concern realizing just how much goes into doing EVERYTHING for the family. Its such a familiar thing for me as this is a perfect way to show what it was like to let my sisters know that i needed breaks every now and then but also not breaking down or letting them feel like a burden or something similar, its such a narrow line to stay on cause on one side it seems like complaining that no one can really understand and on the other end you undo all the effort you spent being the strong one in the first place. I am so happy I found this song and my god there needs to be more light shined on not just family relations, but how the individual roles can weigh on someone. This is personally my first time ever seeing a whole movie dedicated to such a thing and it goes into such amazing detail with it. I think most people need to watch Encanto for this exact reason too, as mostly likely everyone at one point or another has experienced either needing to be the strong one, or hearing too much, seeing it all fall apart before it happens, or being stuck having to be perfect.
Okay rant over, as thanks for reading here is a fun fact! Elephants can't jump and pigs can't look up. Stay safe yall!
As someone who’s the oldest sibling in her family I can say this song hits hard on many levels. Parents divorced when I was young so I became the emotional support for my mom and my siblings. No one ever ask about my feelings or say on the matters around me, and when I spoke up I was told it’s “your responsibility to look after your family” or “your the oldest, it’s your responsibility” even after 20 years the emotional damage is there and I have to admit I resent some of my family.
Can we take a minute to appreciate how beautiful her voice is? It’s so deep yet it still sounds so feminine. I could listen to it all day
“I’m pretty sure I’m worthless if I can’t be of service” holy crap that hits me like a ton of bricks every time I hear that line 😭
Ikr? It just hits different 😭
@Dre you have to insult to promote. You’ll never win that way
the way her voice softens throughout the song is just, wow.
2:33 the feminine voice, mixed with looking for help switching to strong and independent always makes me tear up. It’s her realization that she must set aside her emotions and insecurities in order to provide the strength and stability that the family needs to survive…amazing song and video
Her eyes says a lot. She sings about the pressure, but until that point you can’t really see it.
I think we can all agree that Luisa is one of the most accurate representation of older siblings in almost any form of media. The first time I heard her song while watching Encanto, I damn near started crying, it hits so close to home😭
"Pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service." is a line that defines my life.
I felt that way too at one point. Living for ourselves can be hard. I hope you can find a way to break the cycle.
“Give it to your sister and never wonder if the same pressure would have pulled you under.”
Eldest daughters everywhere cried when they heard this.
The transitions in this song are genius. Like when she said shes "as strong as the the crust of the earth" and then when she first says "under the surface" she literally rips up the floor to show Mirabel what goes on in her mind. Amazing
Read my name.
They're really cool, so cool I have no words to explain it.
But I like how it's called surface pressure, because on the surface there's not usually a lot, because there's more at the core, like when she says "grip that won't let go". She feels like a core trying to keep up with everything around it.
I read this on the TV tropes website under “Fridge Brilliance”, but the crust of the earth is actually the weakest layer of the earth…implying Luisa isn’t as strong as we think
Pretty much all the transitions in this movie are brilliant. Like the whole film has a certain dynamic of flow from magical to normal to mundane or back.
I think it helped that the house (and therefore the general landscape) was shown to be magical so it made writing off sudden changes as just "more magic"
I love how gentle Luisa is with her little sister, their relationship is so sweet!
This song spoke straight to my soul. Hands down the best song in the movie, this has got to become a classic.
She be using her brawns to cover up her struggles and weakness. I love how they portrayed no matter how tough we are, we all have that one soft spot which makes us the weakest. Props to this movie, this is really wholesome, life-relavant and just really the movie we needed. And props to all people who keep on moving despite all the adversaries in life✨
The sheer horror in Mirabelle's face when their home crushed her sister was golden. Luisa is practically unstoppable, but their family might just do the trick fr
At 2:35, for a split second, the look on her face is almost one of pleading for help, to escape the burden. It's very very brief, and maybe I'm reading into a bit, but it always guts me when it drops. (I mean, I know that's the whole point of the song, but especially in that moment.) Such a great, unique tune.
The moment at 2:43 absolutely wrenches my gut every single time.
“Give it to your sister, it doesn’t hurt. And see if she can handle every family burden” as you can see the tears she’s holding back while the crushing weight of the boulders emphasize the crushing weight of expectation that she’s been holding back.
It’s not only extremely gut-punching, but just purely an extremely relatable feeling and it just… wow
It's the ending for me 3:05 when she says "Give it to your sister and never wonder
If the same pressure would've pulled you under". Abuela especially never allowed her to be vulnerable.
@Lisa T C Oh my god yes. This line really almost made me cry, its so sad
Story of my life 😩😩 I have that part on replay too
Especially how gently she places her away from harm, regardless of how imminent the danger is. Without question, almost as if it were muscle memory, she puts herself in-between her sister and harm.
I recently started learning about family roles, esp in dysfunctional families, and now I'm sure that's what this whole movie is about. The oldest sister is the "Helper Child", who takes on an adult role at a young age and bears more responsibility than the others, the middle sister is the "Golden Child" who can do no wrong, but also has the pressure of living up to that impossible role, and Mirabel is the "Lost" or "Invisible Child" who can never compete with the other, more "perfect" siblings, and generally gets ignored. Bruno is the "Truth-Teller/Scapegoat" who gets blamed for all the family's problems just for being honest (that's me in my family). Later in the movie Mirabel takes on that role herself. Very interesting parable about family dynamics and roles.
Isabella is the eldest Luisa is the middle child but aside from that you’re right
One of the parts I really like about this segment is how the things that were "huge pressure" represented by cerberus and the rocks become smaller and smaller and smaller as the stakes go higher. Cerberus becomes nothing but a finger push do defeat by the end of the segment- the 2 rocks from the begining end with her holding up a house, and then the entire city, and not breaking under the pressure.
It represents how even when we're at our pressure limits, at our stress limits, we're forced to endeavor even more, and more, and the things that were so big to us before, become to tiny as the growing pressure forces us to become stronger.
I try to hold back soooooo many tears everytime I hear this song. I've been through alot and this song just explains how I feel to a tee. The expectations that other expect you to live up to can buckle you and under the tough exterior, you feel like a small child holding the weight of the world. You become mentally tired even though you are logically, emotionally & physically strong. I hope to overcome that feeling one day, but until then, no pressure.
"give it to your sister, your sister's older, give her all the heavy things we can't shoulder"
"give it to your sister, your sister's stronger, see if she can hang on a little longer"
"give it to your sister it doesn't hurt and see If she can handle every family burden"
this hit HARD
I needed this song when I was young, I’m super happy other big sisters/brothers in broken homes have something to identify with. ❤
Watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks, no mistakes" and "give it to your sister and never wonder if the same pressure would have pulled you under" both those lines and how they were delivered were simply phenomenal.
As well as the bit JUST before that first one. "Give it to your sister, it doesn't hurt and see if she can handle the family burden"
That's facts 💯 👌🏽
Por donde estás p it rd go o ok go if fooo
Appeals to me
the message in this song is so relatable even outside of a family. Theres always someone people see as the strong one and they pile more on their shoulders cause ahh they strong they got it. This is true in physical and emotional strength. "im pretty sure im worthless if i can't be of service" Is a powerful line.
For a woman with incredible physical strength, Luisa is still stuck in a traditionally feminine role of taking care of the family burdens without expressing any sign of weakness. Poor girl need more hugs and support
You mean the role of the man ? Lmao
Women are allowed and even encouraged to show their emotions with no judgement. A man don't have that. U cry u get labeled weak, crybaby, and dramatic
I think her physical strength is just given to her so that kids can understand her a little but I think her real trait is how strong she is in the inside. Always taking care of everything but never getting any attention or credit for herself.
@Jason Miranda maybe as a kid. I know and accept that for men showing emotion accepted as a sign of weakness in world. Men think women are free to show their emotions because women are already entitled as weak and emotional. But in reality you see women are expected to deal with worlds weight and responsibilities as they become mother and not to show any emotions. The mother is not allowed to show their emotions for the sake of their family. Oldest sister also take her share of burdens as she is almost a second mom to the family. So it's not just men who can't show their emotions, basically our society just sucks for each gender regardless.
As the eldest child I relate to this song. I bawled when I really listened to this song.
my little brother woke me up just to show me this scene and made me listen to this song. he told me that Luisa was me and that he loves me and gave me a big hug and just left the room. now I'm just tryna not cry. ive taken care of him since he was little and i felt this song in such a visceral way. I love that kid so much, I would sacrifice myself or let myself be destroyed if it meant he'd be safe :')
That's beautiful, elder siblings take on a lot and not everyone realises that
I feel exactly the same way about my little sisters
Just keep in mind that your brother most likely knows exactly your sentiment and it is his way of subtly tell you to not overdo it exactly NOT destroy yourself on his behalf ;)
This is probably one of the best Disney songs to ever exist also Luisa is such a QUEEN
I absolutely LOVE the detail of the final 'domino' Luisa is struggling to hold up is her own door, showcasing the tremendous weight of it and how hard it is to carry the responsibility of having one of the strongest gifts in her family. Feeling the need to protect everyone because of it, especially her younger sister Mirabel. She may be able to move mountains and churches but nothing is heavier than the burden of having your beloved town and family rest on your shoulders.
Similar I like the scene from 2:30 on! Red for danger as the pressure piles on with the saddness and fear on her, blue for safety as she protects them all as she is confident and unwavering. It really shows how she is feeling compared to what she shows and does.
@Nightbane Adding on to this: the blue there representing safety is ironic, as the blue appears with their house, and that's what nearly puts her under, more than any of the other things she lifts. It shows even more so that while she protects her family from danger, the biggest danger to her is them, and the pressure they place on her. I know that's what the entire song's about, but they show tell it again, all of it, right there with the colors and house.
1000th like 👍
Yo i made an oc on a game (on roblox called gacha online) And my gf says : That oc looks like Rin Okumura : And i looked him up and it did XD
"Give it your sister it doesn't hurt and see she if she can handle every family burden, watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks" hits so hard
The sibling dynamic of Encanto is my favorite part of the movie, and I love how Luisa is so big and strong in physicality. Wish I could see more of that in Disney.
2:31 - 2:55 this part always makes me cry cause you can hear and feel the pain in her voice singing that part. And also the lyrics is kinda relatable
I know that part hits HARD. It's probably my favorite part of the song because of how powerful it is, especially when she says 'see if she can handle every family burden/watch as as she buckles and bends but never breaks.' The words, the movements, the expressions (from both her and Maribel) are just STUNNING
I love her voice
I love the details of in both Louisa and Isabella’s songs mirabell begins confused like she doesn’t understand their problems and then after a little while in the song she kind of begins to understand and go along with the song instead of being dragged around by it
i love all the symbolism in this song. especially at 2:47 when she says "see if she can handle every family burden". ever since she got this power she felt like she had to carry the weight of the whole family so she didnt disappoint her grandmother. and when the family house falls on her, that stronger represents her feeling like the family problems are hers only. "no mistakes" really takes that part home. honestly i love that all of their powers are just clear symbolism for their expectations in the family
I relate to this song on pretty much every level, bonus point because my name is Luis, the male Luisa. My whole life, friends, mom, other family, everyone. Whenever there was a burden to bear, i was always the one who stepped up. I was the one people kept looking to for answers and to this day its still the case. Every day i wonder how much more i can keep piling up. How much more i can handle just to make sure everyone else gets what they want. Just like Luisa said, I'll buckle and bend, but for the sake of everyone around me, i refuse to break.
"Give it to your sister and never wonder, if the same pressure would have pulled you under"
That hits home in more ways than one... As the oldest daughter, I relate to Luisa on a deep level. This song has practically become my anthem
Everyone's talking about 3:06 but why is no one talking about how hard the, "Give it you your sister it doesn't hurt and see if she can handle every family burden" line hits.
Ever since I've watched the movie and heard this song so I never realized how extremely heavy and deep it is. And pretty sure I'm not the only one who listened and and felt like this song clicked something happened or is happening in they're lives too.❤ still such a great song
Uh huh after almost 2 years you just found that out
@chezgameing uh yeah dude and I was putting a nice positive comment.👍
I'm a 37 year old man and this song gets me every time. I feel like the weight of the world is on me at all times and I alone shall carry that burden for my younger siblings. Older siblings have it extra tough because we not only have to be big sister/brother but we also double duty as mom/dad as well. All while trying to navigate life ourselves
I am OBSSESSED with the “drip drip drip” and the “no cracks, no breaks, no mistakes” at the end. This song is so good
I Agree ! :)
Feels like it translates to every father out there too. Beautiful song.
I relate to her so hard, not just being a strong person but on an emotional level. Certain people are expected to always be that emotional rock. She literally asks who she is if she can't carry everything with out buckling.
I find myself in that position a lot because I just don't have time to be sad or scared. I need to be the one always smiling and handling it.
Gosh, I love this song.
This song will never Break of how good this song is
"Give it to your sister it doesn't hurt, see if she could handle every family burden.whatch as she buckles and bends but never breaks" Touched me shows how protective and loving big sisters or even siblings in that fact. Addicted to this song too much to the pple who wrote this yall deserve a golden buzzer even a million dammn. I cry listening to this😢❤
I can't even begin to explain how every single second of this video is relatable in one way or another. The worst is that everyone takes her for granted and doesn't even ask if she's able to do it. They just expect her to be strong and never, ever make any mistakes. They don't realise how much she does for them and don't feel half as grateful as they should. I wish people could know what it is to be in her shoes, or in that of anyone carrying the weight of their family on their shoulders and knowing it would crumble without them.
“And I glow cause I know what my worth is” HITS DIFFERENT
@Cringington J. Johnson
Knowing and deciding your purpose in life with 100% direction and understanding will bring out the best and most confident you. You settle into yourself and feel right.
It’s interesting though, I love that line, but after watching it 30 times she says it at the same time of flexing her muscles. So her “worth” at the start was her strength for her family and the encanto, which is kinda sad.
@Cringington J. Johnson To me, it shows she's not just expected to be physically strong. She also feels pressured to be emotionally strong on top of that.
Super strength is a pretty useful power so they probably give her all that work, and she understands why. But if she becomes weak it’s gonna cause a lot of problems. So she is stressed as heck.
This song resonates so hard with any child who was expected to be great, who was pressured by loved ones who didn't know they were harming the kid.
just wanna gush over some details I noticed and really appreciate in this song:
how her backup dancers are donkeys and they’re included in the song bc she’s literally being worked like one 😭😭
the background “pressure, pressure” sounds similar to the townspeople chanting “Luisa, Luisa” in the “The Family Madrigal” song. It’s like an emphasis towards what she feels when she gets called to run errands.
how, while she’s pulling all those impressive feats, she constantly has a desperate/concerned face. her perspective is the focus of the song but in her life, it’s probably overlooked because of the scale of her achievements. Everyone just thinks she’s capable of everything but doesn’t realise that she can get tired too!
Luisa’s one of the most relateable characters I’ve ever seen in Disney for me. She gives a wonderful insight on how people shouldn’t put all their value on what they can do for others, and also need to look after themselves as well. Otherwise, look at the stress it can cause 😭😭. Luisa’s also so sweet and sensitive as well. I think she’s driven by care and it’s a big part of why she goes through so much. She just needs to be cared for too, by herself and by others around her. Also she has some sick moves. She is the best character and deserves a long holiday 🥲
I'm the youngest but I relate to this song the most because by the time all the bad things in my family happened my siblings had left me. It's nice seeing that there are siblings who care about their youngers.
This was a year ago
i heard a few saying this song isn't as great sounding as the others but that's what makes this perfect for me. the music really signifies pressure and fragility. the bass is strong but the melody and tones are very subtle and there are lots of staccatos. it gives the song the feeling and emotions Luisa is trying to convey.
Who says that O_O this is catchy as hell and the drip drip drip part
I’m an only child and don’t have much pressure and I’m very lucky to be where I am. But at times I feel like I carry too much, and have self hate, and this song is really a message to expectations. Great job Lin-Manuel Miranda
"I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service." And "Give it to your sister it doesn't hurt and see if she can handle every family burden." Hit me in the chest watching this. The pressure of always being the strong one and carrying the weight of everything is such a universal experience, but we all seem to have different pieces that specifically resonate with each of us. Another masterpiece by Lin Manual Miranda and what a phenomenal big screen debut for Jessica Farrow. Was shocked when she didn't have any other discography listed.

Only one person commented so I will to
Same & I couldn’t help but cry a bit. It hit me since I can relate to the feeling.
I agree it does hit, especially to me being the oldest cousin and siblings of both sides of the family... the kiddos look up to me to much and the adults have a lot of expectations on me as well... mate im only 15-
My little sister (Mia aged 2)is addicted to this song. Thanks for putting it on UAclips!
Como eu amo essa animação
As the oldest of 3 this one hits pretty hard. Every oldest sibling can relate to this on some level.
No wonder why this movie's sound tracks were amazing it's because it's written by Lin manuel miranda!💓😭
I relate to Luisa so goddamn much. I am medically fragile and came from a really bad childhood and everyone congratulates me for being such an inspiration and being so strong and I just wonder “how much longer can I hold on?” And “how much longer can I stay strong for?”. I’m proud of how far I’ve come since then but it’s impossible to be strong always when it feels like everyone is counting on you to be strong and an inspiration
I really love the emotion that Luisa's VA puts in the lyrics, she's not just singing, she's feeling the whole song in every verse
She started the song a bit strange like she was trying to keep the too artificial spoken voice from other dialogue. But it eventually gets going and she is great.
@Sara Samaletdin that spoken singing thing has a term! It's called recitative
I wonder if Lin had input/direction on the VAs as they sang the songs because I got a lot of the same vibes as hamilton from this movie during the singing parts. Building from spoken word to singing, emoting the lyrics, etc. Dropping the consonant sounds and throwing the voice into the nasal cavity during the hercules verse then immediately jumping into hyper syncopated syllables just sounds so much like Lin-Manuel's work
Put in the work, put in the hours
2:37 gotta be my favorite part
I'm not sure how many times I've watched this in the past few days but I love it more and more each time
This song is such a powerful banger! 😭 I can't believe I slept on Encanto for so long. Shout out to my 2nd grade class for OPENING MY EYES AND EARS 🙌🏾🙌🏾
The music video is her saving Mirabel the whole time but looking to her for help, and that kills me.
As the oldest of 3 siblings.... And my father who raised us alone, just passed away unexpectedly and now I have my little brothers and grandmother and my own daughter to take care of all alone. I feel this song deep in my soul. It's all up to me. I miss you dad.
BIG HUG! You got this!
The emotion in this song is incredible. The way her voice shows it- just everything about this is amazing.
Yeah i lit love this song
incredible song, the visual design, the animation, the content of the song, just excellent
this is definitely my favourite from the film, I mean like all the songs are absolute perfections, but this one is just my favourite, its just that little bit better
Luisa’s expressions toward Mirabel throughout the song when she makes her little confessions, and the way she watches out for her, even the way she gently fixes her glasses - something about it just hits my heart hard 🥺 (possibly in no small part because I’m that eldest sister... 😣)
As an oldest child (though she's not) who had to step up when my mother's chronic illness became too much to handle, I feel this song in my soul.
this song makes me sooo emotional. not only is it a banger but the lyrics really hit home for me😭 disney did well with this one for sure
"I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service"
That line is like a gut punch every time.
No actually that is very unintelligent to think of basing ones worth on that.
Maybe but it’s still something a lot of people feel.
I still feel this way at times. It's such a hard yoke to break!
@smarty pants It’s not really a choice if you were raised that way, it’s not “unintelligent”
@smarty pants it's not unintelligent. Unrealistic...yes. but it's a reality for many individuals especially if they r the eldest or first generation immigrants or first time college students for their family. As the eldest who checks all these boxes that line really hits home, because u r indeed made to feel worthless or useless if u aren't always helping ur family. Or made to feel selfish if u chose to put urself first and do 1 thing for u alone
God I relate to this so much…
I’m the youngest of 3, but because of the mental health / disability struggles my older siblings and parents dealt with, I ended up as the most “responsible” out of the family, even at an extremely young age. Additionally, early traumas (like first memories early) that the other family members didn’t experience taught me to clam up about my needs and boundaries because those were much less important than other people’s wants. This was the perfect combo to create the most convenient little obedient parentified kid- I MEAN inhome therapist and mediator for my family to use whenever they felt they needed a pick me up. I was given so many family burdens that an 8 year old NEVER should’ve EVER been made to think about, and was supposed to figure them out on behalf of my overly emotional family because they didn’t have the skills to regulate their emotions better than a child could.
I may not be an oldest child or have had to physically care for my siblings, but as the emotional rock this song hits hard in so many ways. I cried the first time I listened to this and still find myself crying over it a year later.
Sorry for the vent, I just thought my thoughts might be valuable to others like me who aren’t an older sibling but still relate to this song. Basically, TLDR, I see you. You’re not alone, and I’m sorry. 💔
this song has no business being this good and relatable
Maribel actually has a gift:
She can see other peoples’ visions
I honestly cannot watch or listen to this song without crying due to relating to it. I love it. Wish I could listen without the tears though.
She's tough and strong but she loves her family and protects them. She always nice to her sisters and when someone asks her something to do she replies so sweet. I want more of her!!
Everyone does. That's whats causing the pressure ;)
@Leviathandk so true
I'm not the older sibling but I relate to this song so much. My big brother is the 'disappointment' of the family so I'm the one my parents placed all their expectations on. I have to be the perfect one, the one who gets the best grades, looks prettiest and wins all the competitions they put me in. It doesn't matter that I'm still in high school I have to be the one who gets a good job and supports the family. Not the oldest but the pressure is all on me.
I feel this whole song so much, I'm the oldest sister but ontop of that I'm always the responsible ones in my friend groups or even school activities
Whenever we have projects I create a schedule for us, i give everyone tasks they can handle, I entrust them to them important things and when they can't deliver I just make up for it myself. Even if their own tasks are small compared to mine I still get everything done and help them out when I'm done
In my friendships I also was the one constantly being seeked out whenever there was problems, they asked for help, asked for my opinions, asked me for comfort, they were younger or older, no matter what they still came to me
I take care of my brother while both of our parents are at work, I work on commissions myself since my family's financial situation isn't the best, I do my best in my studies and I always do every task given to me with care.
Even with cousins though im the youngest out of the teens I still help when its us 3 since my close cousins are all boys, and similarly with my closet cousin, he asks advice on things
All while I take care of my own mental health since I was burnt out severely after helping so much, though the brightest stars burn the fastest, since my longest friendship broke apart since I couldn't help anymore lel, I was struck with depression after all the pressure and cracked
And since I no longer helped my ex friend, he cut ties with me, blocked me without even letting me say goodbye
But oh well im in the healing stage 😔
As the youngest sibling who got a younger brother at 12 I so get both these characters. It's perfect
Every time I come back to this song I end up crying. It embodies a feeling I know all too well... youngest sibling here who was constantly expected to fulfill the role of an adult/older sibling.
I love that even when she's insecure she still acts, she still fights, she keeps going.
That is true strength.
The last clip where she literally has the entire weight of the WHOLE town on her shoulders! Such a powerful song. Really makes you think about your own family and the roles people have.
And the sun
Guess Luisa carries the whole solar system
Applaud this goddess👏👏👏
She compares herself to Hercules but the song keeps comparing her to another figure. Atlas. Weight of the world literally on her shoulders in several segments of the song.
For real I relate to her strugle my dad had multiple heart attacks when I was a kid and being the only boy I kinda got all the responsibility
I've seen some reviewers claim Jessica Darrow has a bad voice for singing, and her "talking" some lines is unprofessional. I feel it lends more believability to the character. She's not someone who is used to singing, or preforming artistically - she's been doing hard labour and lifting her whole life. So she sounds like a regular person, with a strong but maybe not perfect voice.
To me this song resonates on my academic pressure. And how I feel worthless if I don’t get the straight A’s and the pressure is getting just bigger and bigger. Made me cry.
I like how in every scene she’s always protecting her sister.
Most inspiring song I've heard from disney
This song shows it doesnt matter how strong someone is. If you throw too much at them. They will have a breaking point. It's a good example of how important mental health is too.
I was NOT expecting this song when I saw this film. It steps away from typical Disney sounds and I am in love with it.
It's very a distinctive Lin Manuel Miranda style that I just love. It's this incredible fusion of hip hop, pop, and musical theater
Yeah got hooked
same I did not expect it
Best superman song ever written.
I grew up in Indoa , reading them in the 80s and the hiring videos from the library. Those were the days ! Clever , thought provoking literature. A must for young minds
I love how all songs, including this has a special way of describing the characters and feelings during its run time.
This song!! Makes me cry every time 😢! This is how I have felt for so many years. Not just with my 3 younger brothers but how I have felt I need to be with my mom as well. I adore this song. More than I think I should but!!!! Omg!! Once I heard and seen the movie I have to admit, It has gotten me through a lot I won’t lie! And I really wish this song was there when I was going through all that this song reminds me of. I feel I would have made it so much easier at the time.
