Pop the champagne! An original motion picture soundtrack for In the Heights is headed our way on June 11, the same day the movie hits theaters and HBO Max. Ahead of the album release, the film's title track, "In The Heights" is available to download and stream now.

Written by  Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes and directed by Crazy Rich Asians filmmaker Jon M. Chu, the movie musical extravaganza is an adaptation of Miranda's first-ever Broadway show and stars Anthony Ramos (Broadway's HamiltonA Star Is Born) as Usnavi, a bodega owner in Washington Heights. While Usnavi dreams of jetting off to his native Dominican Republic, he's a little distracted when it seems local beauty salon worker Vanessa (Melissa Barrera) might reciprocate his romantic feelings.
