The Get Down will chronicle the rise of hip-hop in New York and will feature musical contributions from Nas, Grandmaster Flash, Zayn and Nile Rodgers. Netflix will release the show's first six episodes Aug. 12.

The official studio track follows another surprise song drop from Miguel titled "How Many," a single the R&B visionary released in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, aimed at putting an end to racial injustice. 

"I cannot sleep, I cannot rest, I cannot dream, I cannot stay silent, I feel the violence in myself," Miguel sings in the opening to that emotional track. "How many black lives? How many heartbeats turned into flat lines? How many black lives, how many black lives does it take to wake a change?"
