The daytime playlist kicks off with some free-flowing Wale before dipping into Leon Bridges, Janelle Monáe, Jay Z, Pharrell, and Common. Of course, the president keeps things classic with good-feeling tracks like the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" and Prince's "U Got the Look."
The nighttime playlist delivers a different kind of energy with the president relying on some insanely soothing and soulful voices to ease him into the late hours of the day. D'Angelo, Corinne Bailey Rae, Mary J. Blige, Billie Holiday, and Miles Davis are all rounded up to set the mood for balmy summer Washington, D.C. nights. Obama even throws it back to Chance the Rapper's old project, Acid Rap, for some "Acid Rain."
These are definitely some great picks. Let's hope Obama links us with a place to listen to his playlist and that First Lady Michelle Obama follows suit with a tracklist of her own favorite summer tracks.
