Sia's version appears on the 'Hamilton Mixtape'
The songs on the Hamilton Mixtape are so good, they’re even impressing the show’s original cast. On Friday, two new tracks were released: “Satisfied” by Sia, Miguel, and Queen Latifah; and “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done),” by K’NAAN, Snow Tha Product, Riz MC (a.k.a The Night Of star Riz Ahmed), and Residente. Shortly after, Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda posted a video of the original King George himself, Jonathan Groff, listening to the new version of “Satisfied” for the first time.
Groff presses play and his face breaks out into an immediate smile. At one point, he exclaims, “Oh my god” and stands up to better process his emotions, before bursting into laughter and jumping up and down by the end.
In the original musical Hamilton, “Satisfied” is sung and rapped by the character Angelica Schuyler (originated by Renee Elise Goldsberry), and covers her conflicted emotions about watching the protagonist Alexander Hamilton marry her younger sister Eliza instead of her.
Watch the video below. The complete Hamilton Mixtape is out Dec. 2.
