‘Hamilton’ Star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Officially Debuts His Secret ‘Star Wars’ Track
Entertainment| | By Margo Gothelf
Hot off his 16 Tony Award nominations for Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda is making headlines again for the release of his Star Wars: The Force Awakens musical hit, “Jabba Flow.”
The song was composed in secret during Miranda’s breaks from working on his Broadway hit. When the official soundtrack from The Force Awakens was released, “Jabba Flow” was left off the track list. The song was officially released today, May the 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day – May the Fourth be With You – on both iTunes and StarWars.com.

Miranda announced the release of the track during his live #Ham4Ham performance in New York City on Wednesday morning. He even performed the song live with J.J. Abrams who made his official Broadway debut. Check out the live performance below.
Miranda continued to prove his Star Wars knowledge explaining that the song was written in Huttese, the native language of Jabba the Hutt.
“It translates as ‘No, lover lover, it wasn’t me,'” Miranda told the crowd. “It’s literally a Shaggy intergalactic remix.”
Unfortunately, “Jabba Flow” isn’t available to stream on non-Apple devices, so you’ll have to wait on that one. For now Spotify users can check out the “Jabba Flow” Rick Rubin remix, “Re-Work.”
