Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Lin-Manuel Miranda just became our new favorite (unexpected) duo. The stars, who work together on Disney’s Moana, recorded a Beauty and the Beast singalong together, and we’re still not over it.

Last week, Miranda took over Disney’s Instagram account to raise the hype for the upcoming movie Moana, for which he wrote the score, and posted not one but 11 priceless videos of himself singing showtunes. On Friday, Johnson took to Instagram to share an extended version of one clip, and this surprising duo just might be your new favorite musical group.

In the video, the Baywatch star lends his vocals to “Gaston,” from Beauty and the Beast, with The Rock making a cameo as the muscly character. “Oh my God that is the Rock.. GASTON!” Johnson writes in the caption. “For our next act Lin Manuel Miranda and I will tour the globe singing hip hop music in the spirit of show tunes.”

“After working w/ Lin on our movie #MOANA and having the privilege of singing songs he wrote, it’s easy to see why the creator of Broadway’s Pulitzer Prize winning HAMILTON is a genius. And the best part about it is he’s a genuinely great and humble dude. Look forward to working w you again my friend,” he added.

“The feeling is mutual @TheRock,” Miranda responded on Twitter. "I’ll start the car.”
