In The Heights releases a video for its song “96,000” which features 500 extras, synchronized swimming, and a sneak peak into the movie musical.
The song and video for “96,000” from the highly anticipated movie musical, In The Heights, was just released. In The Heights is based off of a 2005 Tony Award winning musical from Hamilton mastermind, Lin-Manuel Miranda. The story follows a bodega owner in the primarily Latino neighborhood of Washington Heights, New York City, whose life is changed when his bodega sells a winning lottery ticket to someone in the barrio.
Ahead of the film’s release, Warner Bros. has released the song “96,000” from In The Heights along with a short promotional video of the song’s performance and other cinematic moments from the film. The song serves as the quintessential “I want” song from the musical, in which the characters express to the audience their main goals and motivations. Atlantic Records, Warner’s music label, has also made the song available to stream. Check out the video below:
The song “96,000” is a reference to the lottery ticket sold (that was worth $96,000) and is a song about money, movin’ on up, and achieving the upper echelon of the financial realities of the American dream. For the film, the number is perhaps the most ambitious, being filmed over two days with around 500 extras. The number was filmed in various locations, the main one being Highbridge Pool, and even features synchronized swimming.
In The Heights premieres on June 11 in both theaters and on HBO Max, though it will only be available to stream for a month.
