Barack and Michelle Obama’s leadership is surely missed for many reasons, just one of which is their taste in music.
The power couple have always been unafraid to publicly co-sign their favorite musicians and now, the 44th President and First Lady are giving major shoutouts to a whole host of artists – both current and old school.
Via social media, Barack shared 44 (appropriately) of his and Michelle’s favorite songs as summer comes to a close. The list, of course, is impressive. “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,” Obama posted on Twitter and Instagram.

Everyone from Hip Hop mainstays like Drake and Jay-Z to older school artists like Erick Sermon and Lauryn Hill made the list. He also revealed his fondness for some up-and-coming acts like SZA, Lizzo, H.E.R., and more. Suffice to say, the Obamas have an excellent taste in tunes.
Lizzo has already acted to being included on the playlist, and unsurprisingly, she freaked out.
We miss you Barack and Michelle. COME BACK!
