The Obamas Just Dropped Their Summer Playlist


We can’t help but think Barack Obama probably did his famous mic drop when he released this star-studded summer playlist.

The former US president tweeted a playlist of what he and wife Michelle, the former First Lady, have been listening to this summer, and let’s just say: it is a vibe.

“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,” he wrote.

The playlist, which he dubbed ‘Summer 2019’, included a range of tunes, from emerging artists (Lizzo’s ‘Juice’ and Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’) to oldies but goodies (like Lauryn Hill’s ‘Doo-Wop (That Thing)’ and Stevie Wonder’s ‘Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing’).

Unsurprisingly, everyone was thrilled to hear what the famous couple are listening to – but perhaps none more than Lizzo herself.

Just an hour earlier, she had been gushing about the president being “the first President I could ever vote for”. Pointing out the coincidence, she added: “WE’RE FRIENDS NOW I DON’T MAKE THE RULES!!!”

Hey, this is a friendship we can get behind.
