lin-manuel-miranda-e1478193041935If there’s one thing the nation needs right now, it’s an AshantiJa Rule reunion to remind us of simpler times when we could worry about things like Ashanti not always being there when Ja Rule called (she was always on time). Lin-Manuel Miranda is going to give us that reunion.

This morning, he casually dropped on Twitter that he’ll be releasing an album called The Hamilton Mixtape, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like- different artists doing covers and remixes of songs from the musical Hamilton. Starting tomorrow, you can pre-order the album which will be released on December 3rd.

The mixtape will feature Alicia KeysJohn LegendChance the RapperThe RootsSiaRegina SpektorKelly Clarkson, and Nas, just to name a few. There is also, of course, the aforementioned Ashanti (feat. Ja Rule) song. The whole track list reads like a who’s who of wish list status collaborators:
