From the founding fathers to Hawaiian deities, Lin-Manuel Miranda knows how to lyricize history.

The Hamilton composer and Tony Award-winner co-wrote songs for Disney’s latest animated film Moana, and a new “outtake” reveals some “Alexander Hamilton” vibes.

“Unstoppable,” a bonus song on the deluxe edition of the Moana official soundtrack, features fresh rhyming vocals performed by Miranda himself.

“Abandoned by his parents and raised by the gods / Who could see he was destined for greatness / Though he was no bigger than you or me as a baby / He was a demigod!” sings Miranda, using the same rap-and-rhyming style that drives Hamilton, as he details the rise of the demigod Maui, voiced by Dwayne Johnson in the film.

Moana is now in theaters.

Listen to the full track above.
