This will blow us all away. If your non-Hamilton-obsessed friends are sick of you attempting to name-drop Leslie Odom Jr. and Andrew Chappelle, now you can seriously impress them. The highly anticipated Hamilton mixtape, which was first announced in October 2015, finally has a track list, and we can’t wait for it.
The album has covers and remixes of songs from the Broadway cast recording, and we can’t even pick what we’re most excited about: Alicia Keys slaying “That Would Be Enough.” Sia singing “Satisfied”…alongside Miguel and Queen Latifah, as if she weren’t enough. Wiz Khalifa rapping as Thomas Jefferson in “Washington on Your Side.” A remix of “My Shot” with the Roots and Busta Rhymes spitting newly rewritten lyrics.
There are also previously unreleased Hamilton tracks, including “Valley Forge,” performed by the one and only Lin-Manuel Miranda. The only miniscule flaw is the omission of “Guns and Ships.” Apparently no one can do it better than Daveed Diggs, though James Corden made a valiant attempt….
Oh, and get ready: “Dear Theodosia” by Chance the Rapper will probably make you cry.
