I don’t know about y’all but I’ve watched ‘Hamilton’ at least twice a week since it dropped on Disney+. I was already a big fan and have talked about it a few times here on the blog, but having a visual readily available has made me a bigger fan. I’ve done deep dives on Twitter and clicked through the #Hamilton and #Hamilfilm hashtags checking out all of the pictures and videos of people expressing their love of the project. The clips of kids reenacting their favorite scenes, the watch parties (I even had one of my own on July 3rd), and more! That show truly changed the game and educated us as well as entertained us. But today’s a Tuneage Tuesday post so let’s get to the music!
I made a post on Facebook this past weekend that perfectly sums up how I feel about the Hamilton effect.
I love that Disney+ has brought out a new wave of Hamilton fans!! One of the lines in the show is “tomorrow there’ll be more of us” and that’s been the case since July 3rd. Getting to experience that new excitement with them is so fun and blowing their minds by informing them about the mixtape is even more fun.
I cannot stress this enough; if you like the soundtrack and the show please do yourself a favor and check out the mixtape. You can find it on all streaming platforms and even YouTube. Nas, Common, John Legend, Chance the Rapper, Kelly Clarkson, Miguel, Dia, Ja Rule, Ashanti and Queen Latifah are just a few people on it!
