Just two weeks after Miranda honored the Orlando shooting victims at the Tony Awards, the Hamilton star came together with Lopez to record a song titled “Love Makes the World Go Round.” The collaboration will go towards Somos Orlando, an ongoing benefit campaign for last month’s tragedy.
Miranda took to Twitter to share the news, writing that he had some new music to share that fans wouldn’t need tickets to hear. “Sooo @JLo & yours truly went in on a tune that will benefit [Somos Orlando] here’s a taste,” he wrote. The tease shows that the song will be an upbeat rap/R&B song, with powerful lyrics that hope to be a positive “message for the world.”

Aside from the teaser video, Lopez also shared an Instagram photo of the two of them working on the song. Nice work, #JLin!
