Last month, Miranda spilled details to PEOPLE about the album while backstage at the People en Español festival.

“Right now we’re 50/50 original songs inspired by the show and covers,” he said.  “And every time someone turns in something new it’s sort of an amazing gift and really surprising.”

He also gushed about Sia, Miguel and Queen Latifah’s collaboration on “Satisfied,” which he called one of the mixtape’s most surprising songs.

“I can tell you that the people covering ‘Satisfied’ — and it’s more than one person — that’s when we realized how special this was going to be,” he said. “They turned it in nine months ago and, like, our hair blew backwards. I have footage of playing it for (then-Hamilton star) Jonathan Groff for the first time backstage and him just crying in our dressing room.”

Miranda said he hopes that the mixtape will have widespread appeal

“I’m really excited to sort of see how well these songs play in the pop, hip-hop music sphere — they actually work really well as radio tunes,” he said. “What’s exciting is that a lot of my favorite artists that are on the radio — Chance [The Rapper], Sia, Alicia Keys, John Legend — they brought their A-game to this work. Whether that translates into radio play, I don’t know. It’s just really exciting to see world-class artists play with your material.”
