The HAMILTON cast album has already won a Grammy Award, and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is already hard at work on his next album for the show. Miranda will release 'The Hamilton Mixtape', due later this year- featuring remixes and covers of songs from the hit show.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, he revealed more about the project, including that Busta Rhymes, Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, Latifah, Common, and Chance the Rapper will all record songs. He explained: "People are coming out of the woodwork, knocking on the door. Half the songs are cover versions of songs in the show, and the others are interpolations- we'll take some of this, some of that, and make something new out of it."

Theories on which song?

Now that we know Regina and Ben are on the same track - and there's no rapping, it's got to be an Eliza song

So I was super wrong. All my guesses were on That Would Be Enough (or other Eliza tracks).

Thrilled that Regina is basically Burr and Ben is Hamilton on Dear Theodosia. The song itself is getting great reactions, as is the whole Mixtape. Also loving the love Lin is throwing Ben's way.
