Oh c’mon. Dwayne Johnson can sing, too?

It’s something those with Johnson’s Rock Clock app will be aware of – the man likes to belt out a melody now and then.

Disney has dropped a new clip from Moana, this one showcasing “You’re Welcome,” one of the tracks written by Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda. It may only be a slice of the song, but it’s nevertheless fun and provides a nice little look/listen at the musical stylings we can expect going in.

I don’t know about you guys, but this writer is going to have that chorus stuck in his head for a while. Please, no one thank me for anything for a couple of days.

Moana, directed by Aladdin and The Little Mermaid helmers Ron Clements and John Musker, will hit US cinemas on November 23 and arrives in Australia on December 26.

Synopsis for Moana:

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who is inspired to leave the safety and security of her island on a daring journey to save her people. Inexplicably drawn to the ocean, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) convinces the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) to join her mission, and he reluctantly helps her become a wayfinder like her ancestors who sailed before her. Together, they voyage across the open ocean on an action-packed adventure, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills her quest and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i, “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
