Former US President and no stranger to sharing his fave tunes with us, Barack Obama has shared his 2020 Summer Playlist. No snob to genre, the playlist is stacked with a variety: from Beyoncé and Rihanna to Billie Eilish and Otis Redding.
Obama shared his playlist to Twitter saying, “Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time listening to music with my family. I wanted to share some of my favorites from the summer.”
He also mentioned some of the tracks he’s included are from some of the artists performing at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), which goes down this week.
There are some newies: ‘Gaslighter’ from The Chicks and ‘My Future’ from Billie Eilish. While some oldies like Otis Reddings’ ‘These Arms Of Mine’ and Billie Holliday’s ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’ also made Obama’s list.
Billie Eilish, Maggie Rogers, Leon Bridges, and John Legend are among the artists featured who’ll be performing at the DNC.
