Barack Obama Just Shared His Summer 2019 Playlist
The playlist features Canadian artists Daniel Caesar and Shawn Mendes.
Former U.S. president Barack Obama shared his summer 2019 playlist this morning, and it does not disappoint.
“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,” wrote Obama on Instagram. “Hope you enjoy.”
The playlist features Lil Nas’ “Old Town Road,” Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Childish Gambino’s “MOOD 4 EVA” and Maggie Rogers’ “Burning,” to name a few.
Songs by several Canadian artists make an appearance. “Best Part,” a track with H.E.R off of Torontonian Daniel Caesar’s 2017 album Freudian made the list, along with Shawn Mendes’ song “Senorita” with girlfriend Camila Cabello.
Artists featured on the list have been sharing their reactions on social media. Lizzo was thrilled to see “Juice” included, tweeting in all caps: “We’re friends now, I don’t make the rules!!” Maggie Rogers shared an Instagram video of herself screaming, and captioned the post: “Interrupting my vacation social media celibacy for this important @barackobama message.”
