Lin-Manuel Miranda pulled out all the stops for the release of one final "Hamilton" remix track on Friday, including a feature from ... former President Barack Obama?

"What an incredible gift these folks have given to the United States of America", Obama said at the time.

After taking a look back at previous Hamildrops in a series of tweets Thursday night, the Mary Poppins Returns star successfully inspired me with a quick note on the importance of perspective.

Notably, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda last performed "One Last Time" for the former president in an emotional farewell tribute at the White House just days before he stepped down from office early a year ago.


The 44th president - see what they did there? - provides a spoken interlude for the song, which originally featured in Act Two of Hamilton. One is Warner Bros.' Aquaman, the latest D.C. universe flick, projected to come out on top with a three-day opening weekend nearing $70 million, and a total of $120 million by Christmas, per Deadline. But Jackson and Miranda also performed the original version of "One Last Time" with Obama in attendance.

The then-president led a standing ovation following the performance.

Other Hamildrops have included a song about Benjamin Franklin performed by The Decemberists, a posthumous release by Prodigy and a new original song for the musical by Miranda and composer John Kander.
