Lin Manuel Miranda teased on Monday morning that he would soon share some new music, and oh boy, did he deliver.

In between Hamilton and his seemingly endless number of other side projects, Miranda found time to collaborate with Jennifer Lopez on a new song. Titled “Love Make The World Go Round,” the track was recorded to benefit the Hispanic Federation’s fund for victims of the Orlando shooting.

Miranda and Lopez posted a 30-second clip on Twitter, over a video of the two artists working together in the studio.

Eagle-eyed fans were already wondering if the two stars were collaborating on a new project, after Jennifer Lopez posted a selfie with Miranda in the background last week.

Miranda previously paid tribute to Orlando during the Tony Awards and joined other Broadway stars to record the benefit single “What The World Needs Now Is Love.”
