In lieu of the highly anticipated project The Hamilton Mixtape, Lin-Manuel Miranda surprised his fans by dropping two new cuts ahead of the record’s Dec. 2 release.
The first track features the pop songstress Sia crooning alongside tour-mate Miguel and Queen Latifah for “Satisfied.” Notably, Latifah delivers a memorable guest appearance, quickly reminding us all that she still got firey bars.
The second song finds K’naan, Snow Tha Product, Riz MC (aka actor Riz Ahmed, also of Swet Shop Boys), and Residente banding together to instill hope into the lives of dejected foreigners on “Immigrants.”
Despite the results of the recent election, the uplifting tune encourages immigrants to continue on with their grind, even if tomorrow isn’t promised.
Hear both tracks below via Spotify.
The Hamilton Mixtape, which is out December 2 via Atlantic, also features contributions from Chance the Rapper, Francis and the Lights, the Roots, Nas, Wiz Khalifa, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Usher, Common, and many others.
