Former president Barack Obama is back with his annual summer playlist and this year is just as diverse as ever. Obama tweeted out a screenshot of the 44-track sonic adventure on Saturday morning (August 24).
“With summer winding down, here’s a sampling of what Michelle and I have been listening to — some new, some old, some fast, some slow. Hope you enjoy.”
From Drake’s “Too Good” collaboration with Rihanna and The Spinners classic “I’ll Be Around” to Beyoncé, JAY-Z, Childish Gambino and Oumou Sangaré’s “MOOD 4 EVA”and Lizzo’s “Juice,” Obama’s tastes are all over the place.

Obama, who’s always been outspoken about his love for Hip Hop, also included Lauryn Hill’s classic “Doo-Wop (That Thing),” SZA’s “Go Gina,” Mac Miller and Anderson .Paak’s “Dang” and — yep! — Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ massive hit, “Old Town Road (Remix).”
And for those Hip Hop purists, A Tribe Called Quest’s “Can I Kick It?” and Erick Sermon’s “Music” featuring Marvin Gaye is on the list as well.
