DAVEED DIGGS BRINGS HIS TRADEMARK FLOW TO DISNEY CHANNEL IN A NEW AND TOTALLY LIT HANUKKAH SONG, "PUPPY FOR HANUKKAH"

Multitalented Daveed Diggs (Broadway's "Hamilton," "Snowpiercer") brings his trademark flow to the original new song "Puppy for Hanukkah" premiering today, FRIDAY, DEC. 4 (9:00 p.m. EST/PST), on Disney Channel. The holiday hip-hop song, performed by Diggs and marked by his distinctive vocal style, dense verses with a memorable hook, was written and produced by Diggs with his longtime friends and creative partners William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes (also of the experimental hip-hop trio Clipping.). The song includes clarinet, tsimbl and percussion to make its innovative attention-grabbing sound.

The music video will also be presented on DisneyMusicVEVO and will rotate on Disney Channel and in Disney Stores nationwide this month.

"Daveed, William and Jonathan created a Hanukkah song for the ages that's inventive, humorous and relevant as it celebrates the Miracle of Lights, the diverse world we live in, and the universal joy when a family adopts a pet into a child's life," said Steven Vincent, vice president, Music and Soundtracks, Disney Branded Television.

"I was honored when Disney Channel approached me to come up with a fresh Hanukkah tune and embraced the opportunity to share my love of music and a little piece of my culture," said Diggs.

The song was written and produced by Grammy(R) and Tony(R) Award-winning Daveed Diggs with William Huston and Jonathan Snipes. The song is performed by Daveed Diggs. It was mixed by Steve Kaplan. Musicians featured are Max Kaplan on the clarinet and Hal Rosenfeld on the tsimbl and percussion. It is published by Wonderland Music Company, Inc. (BMI).

The lyrics to "Puppy for Hanukkah" are the following:
You know what I want
Whatchu want whatchu want whatchu want whatchu want
I want a puppy for Hanukkah
Wanna puppy wanna puppy wanna puppy wanna puppy
And Imma get Just what I wanted yup
Gon get it gon get it gon get it gon get it
Imma get puppy for Hanukkah
Get a puppy get a puppy get a puppy get a puppy

Some kids write lists for they Christmas gifts and send em' all off to they Santa's
But I don't trip off a list for my gift
Imma get it cause I got 8 chances
That's right 8 nights Festival of Lights go hard for a week with a plus one
So y'all keep stressing be good learn lessons
But Hanukkah is the best fun

And you can laugh if you wanna
Laugh at 'em laugh at 'em laugh at 'em laugh at 'em
But Imma get a puppy for Hanukkah
Get a puppy get a puppy get a puppy get a puppy
Clarinet no harmonica
Play the clarinet play the clarinet play the clarinet
When I get my puppy for Hanukkah
That's right.

Okay first night an' I'm feeling right
Momma came with a gift wrapped box
It don't bark don't bite don't cry when I shake it so I'm pretty sure that it's just socks
But you never know miracles happen
I tap in and start to rip the paper.
Oh please let it be
The puppy that I wanted I don't wanna wait till (oh yep that's just socks)
Imma get what I wanted to
Whatchu want whatchu want whatchu want whatchu want
Imma get a puppy for Hanukkah
Get a puppy get a puppy get a puppy get a puppy
I ain't even trippin' on it bruh
I ain't even trip I ain't even trip I ain't even trip
Cause Imma get my puppy for Hanukkah
Ok.

Night two what it do candles get lit it's lit!
Latkes sour cream is the best dip best dip!
Apple sauce on the side I might just get
(Say the Brucha first)
Adonai ain't gonna trip

Barukh atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha'olam, asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav, v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Hanukkah

That blessing is a bop now I've said it
Not sure what it means but I learned in phonetic
By the way you gat a present for me is it what I wanted?
Pass that shamash let's get the flame started.

Ooooh. For me? Oh, you shouldn't have well. Guess I'll just (ripping sounds)
Oh that's a sweater! Did somebody knit this? It's really ... It's really great.

This isn't going how I saw It huh
Ain't goin well it ain't going well
I really hope I get this puppy for Hanukkah
Get a puppy get a puppy get a puppy get a puppy
It's all I ever really wanted for
It's all I want it's all I want it's all I want
Just a puppy for Hanukkah
Gimme that dog

Lights keep burning and nights just pass
Menorah is now covered up with wax
I thought it would be obvious I didn't want to ask
but will tonight be the night I get my puppy at last?

My feet are warm and my body is cozy
The hats and the mittens an umbrella? Totally
Great love it all I'm the king of style.
There's one thing I've been wanting all this while I....

(yip) wait... is that?... could it be? Oh my gosh

You're everything I ever wanted for
You the one I want you the one I want you the one I want
You're my puppy for Hanukkah.
Got my puppy got my puppy got my puppy got my puppy
Imma name you Monica
(Nah probably not that's a weird name for a dog)
But it rhymes with Hanukkah
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
I got my Hanukkah puppy
