We could have never dreamed of a collab like this. Hamilton creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda has joined forces with none other than Jennifer Lopez to record a song and we can only imagine that it is perfect. The track is called ‘Love Make the World Go Round’ and seems to go along the same lines as Miranda’s ‘Love is Love is Love’ Tony Awards speech referencing the Orlando shooting.

We’re not just excited about the artists (although, that’s a big part of it), the song seems amazing just on its own. From the little taste we get in the clip, it looks like it’s all about acceptance, love and critical debate over hate; all stuff we can definitely get behind.
Proceeds from the song’s sales will go towards the Hispanic Federation‘s Orlando project. The foundation is working to address the long-term needs of the Orlando community through culturally competent and bilingual mental health services.
Both stars teased with a preview of the song in a video, and the promise that the full song is ‘coming soon.’

Excuse me, Miss Lopez and Mr. Miranda, we need to know when this will be available to us. Our poor hearts can’t take this uncertainty. We’ve seen that 30 second clip and we need more.
