It’s that time of the year again.
Ahead of this week’s Democratic National Convention, Barack Obama has shared his annual playlist featuring 53 songs that soundtrack his summer including today’s biggest hits, throwbacks, and even a few surprises.
“Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time listening to music with my family,” tweeted the former POTUS. “I wanted to share some of my favorites from the summer—including songs from some of the artists at this week’s @DemConvention. Hope you enjoy it.”
He included selections from John Legend, Jennifer Hudson, Common, Leon Bridges, and Billie Eilish, who are all set to perform at this week’s convention.
The 44th President of the United States has also been keeping up on new music, with tracks from Popcaan featuring Drake and PARTYNEXTDOOR (“TWIST & TURN”), J. Cole (“The Climb Back”), Summer Walker and PARTYNEXTDOOR (“My Affection”), and Teyana Taylor (“Made It”).
Other songs in rotation in the Obama household include Rihanna and Drake’s “Work,” Beyoncé’s “ALREADY,” Frank Ocean’s “Cayendo,” Nas’ “Memory Lane (Sittin’ In da Park),” and the late Mac Miller’s “Blue World.” Megan Thee Stallion’s remix to “Savage” with Beyoncé was also among Barack’s bops. “Omg !!!” tweeted the Hot Girl after seeing his playlist.
Plus, he took it back with timeless classics from Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Nina Simone, and Bob Dylan.
