Tracks issued as part of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamildrop” series have fared well from a sales standpoint, and the newest release is no exception.

Positioned as the first draft of “Hamilton” number “Burn,” the song features vocals from Arianna Afsar, Julia Harriman, Lexi Lawson, Rachelle Ann Go & Shoba Narayan. Each has played Eliza in the blockbuster musical.
