“We meet new people and then kill them. We have the best job!” Cha-Cha says in the newest trailer for Netflix’s comic adaptation, The Umbrella Academy.

The spot, which premiered during the 61st annual Grammy Awards on CBS on Sunday night, offers a closer look at Cha-Cha (Mary J. Blige) and her accomplice Hazel (Cameron Britton). The two time-traveling villains are appointed to kill a superhero league of orphans as they attempt to save the world from an impending apocalypse.

With Blige’s rendition of “Stay with Me” in the background, the trailer also reveals that the series will include exclusive covers from Blige and Gerard Way, co-creator of the comic series and former frontman of My Chemical Romance.

Based on the Eisner Award-winning Dark Horse Comics series, The Umbrella Academy also stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Adam Godley, Aidan Gallagher, David Castañeda, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe and Colm Feore.

The Umbrella Academy premieres February 15 on Netflix.
