The answer is yes, and that news is that you can listen to two singles off the record on Spotify right now.
The two songs available for listening are Kelly Clarkson’s belted version of “It’s Quiet Uptown” and The Roots’ thumping “My Shot (Rise Up Remix)” featuring the one and only Busta Rhymes (as well as Joell Ortiz and Nate Ruess).
On the latter track, Busta Rhymes raps the iconic (but slightly altered) words, “Rise up / if you’re living on your knees,” along with the additional lyrics, “Every city, every hood, we need to rise up / All my soldiers, what’s good? We need to rise up / We ain’t got no other choice, we need to rise up / Rise up!”
A full track list for the album, which features covers and remixes of songs from the beloved Broadway hit “Hamilton: An American Musical,” was announced yesterday, revealing that Ashanti and Ja Rule will be reuniting on the song “Helpless.” Cue aughts nostalgia.
Dec. 2 can’t get here soon enough. In other news, “My Shot” should be the unofficial anthem of the Cubs’ World Series win this year.
