There's only three more months until the season 3 premiere of Orange Is the New Black and this new video just makes the wait even harder!

On Friday, Netflix released a video showing 15 actresses from the female prison dramedy covering the super-meta song "Don't Talk to Me" just perfectly. The track was created by the show, thanks to its fans!

The stars featured in the parody, in order of appearance, are: Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman), Laura Prepon (her on-again, off-again lover Alex Vause), Lea DeLaria (Big Boo),  series newcomer Ruby RoseSamira Wiley (Poussey Washington), Taryn Manning (Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett), Jackie Cruz (Flaca Gonzales), Uzo Aduba (Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren), Laverne Cox (Sophia Burset), Lori Petty (returning as Tyler), Kate Mulgrew (Galina "Red" Reznikov), Natasha Lyonne (Nicky Nichols), Selenis Leyva (Gloria Mendoza), Yael Stone (Lorna Morello), Danielle Brooks (Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson), Dascha Polanco (Dayanara Diaz), Adrienne C. Moore (Cindy Hayes).

Watch the video above. And remember how gorgeous Poussey sounded singing "Amazing Grace" on a Christmas episode last season? Totally real. Wiley showcases her amazing voice in this video, yet again.


The song had undergone a metamorphosis last summer. In July, Vine star Twaimz posted a video of himself mimicking a chant and hand gestures inmate Leanne Taylor, played by Emma Myles, had made to former gang leader and now-adversary Pennsatucky in a season 2 scene.

His version inspired other Vine stars to post their own. Here is Leah Suh's, released about a week later.

And here is Lycia Faith's, posted a week after hers.

Then teen hip-hop artist Tre Coast remixed Faith's cover and added some rap lyrics. This is the version on which the Orange Is the New Black video is based.

"I heard her singing the jingle from OITNB so I made a beat and song to it," he said alongside his YouTube video, which has been viewed more than 9.6 million times.

The Orange Is the New Black cast had also released a version of "12 Days of Christmas" last holiday season.

Season 3 premieres on June 12 on Netflix.
