Every year Barack Obama lets us know what music has been gracing his speakers. This year’s summer mix had tunes fit for every occasion from a romantic night in to a barbeque. The former POTUS’ playlist is full of pop, R&B and hip-hop from as recent as this year all the way back to the seventies.

“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 on Instagram.

Since he was our beloved 44th president it was only right that his playlist include 44 of his favorite songs. Obama’s summer sounds include “Too Good” by Drake and Rihanna, “Best Part” by Daniel Ceasar and H.E.R, “Juice” by Lizzo, “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas Z and Billy Ray Cyrus, “Doo Wop (That Thing)” by Lauryn Hill, “MOOD 4 EVA”  by Jay Z and Beyonce, “Go Gina” by SZA  and much more.

Lizzo was ecstatic after she saw that “Juice” came in at no. 6 on his list. She took to Instagram to share her entitlement,  saying that a hour after she tweeted about Obama being the first president she voted for he posted this list and of course she was hype.


Take a look at Obama’s 2019 summer playlist below.
