The Fourth of July might have been full of hot dogs, fireworks, and Instagram posts of people decked out in their most Americana gear, but there was also another reason to celebrate: Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jennifer Lopez announced they had collaborated on a new song.  

And it wasn't any regular pop hit — even though that would have made our hearts just as happy. The dynamic duo teased a track on social media called "Love Make the World Go Round," which will benefit victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando through the Somos Orlando campaign.

On Monday (July 4), Miranda teased the track on Twitter.

Of course people couldn't contain their excitement.

New music from Miranda that you can actually listen to without paying a fortune? Hell yes!

And when he finally revealed the new track, Miranda gave us more than just a song.

The video clip revealed he had collaborated in the studio with J.Lo!

Lopez shared the same tweet, then followed up with a message that included an iconic quote from Miranda himself.

The song's lyrics reflect a message of equality and love in the face of intolerance and hate.

"What we got is love even when the sinners hate us / We cannot let them diminish or intimidate us / We sing out, we got the rhythm and the truth on our side / We cut through the divide and we do it with pride," are some of the lyrics heard in the teaser video.

Fans were excited and supportive of the incredibly heartfelt message.

Inspiring doesn't begin to cut it.


Proceeds from Miranda and Lopez's song will benefit Somos Orlando, a campaign dedicated to helping the tragedy's victims and their families.

"The days, weeks, months, and even years following will be a time of healing for our nation, but especially for victims and the families of the victims," the Hispanic Federation's website stated, noting that over 95% of the victims were Latino. "Proyecto Somos Orlando will address the long-term needs for mental health services that are culturally competent and bilingual. Proyecto will enable care to be delivered to those affected directly in the communities in which they live. Beyond emergency assistance, they will be provided with case management, crisis intervention, and mental health services, among other needs."


With less than a week from Miranda's final "Hamilton" performance, this is one way to make a statement.

We still can't believe that July 9 will be the last day to catch him in action!

No word yet when the single will be available for purchase. But we'll wait patiently — um, more like impatiently — to hear the rest of the track!
