What is the genre of Washington on your side,

, as performed in Hamilton?

1 Answer 1


The songs from Hamilton are almost their own subgenre. I'd call this "Broadway Hip-Hop" or "Hip-Hop Show Tunes." It has a strong underground hip-hop influence, but it's also closely related to modern show tunes such as the Rent score.
