Today, on New Music Friday, its time for something pretty exciting. The Hamilton Mixtape is a 23-track album featuring A-list pop, hip-hop, and R&B artists as they cover and remix songs from the hugely successful, award-winning Broadway musical. Interspersed throughout the album are also demos tracks written by Hamilton-creator Lin-Manuel Miranda that never made it onto the stage and a few totally new songs.
Listen for tracks by Alicia Keys, Andra Day, Ashanti, Chance The Rapper, Dessa, Jill Scott, John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, K’naan, Nas, Dave East, Regina Spektor, The Roots, Sia, Stro Elliot, Usher, and Wiz Khalifa. There’s even an appearance by The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon, if you can believe it.
