It’s not every day that the President of the United States drops a mix tape, but when it happens, we listen. This week’s featured playlist comes from the highest office in the nation directly to give your summer the perfect soundtrack.
Technically, the President released two playlists. One, for the summer days with some upbeat jams from artists like Leon Bridges, Common, and Sara Bareilles to listen to while you get outside, hit the beach, and have fun.. The second is a night time playlist featuring Carmen McRae, Tower of Power, Billie Holiday and more. The latter is a more easy-listening playlist for watching the stars, relaxing by the pool or…you know, whatever else you guys get up to at night. We’re not judging, Mr. President.
You can find the entire track list in the image above or on the President’s Twitter here. We’ve also compiled most of the songs in a Spotify playlist below. A few are missing due to Spotify’s licensing, but there’s still plenty to.
Welcome to our Featured Playlist series. Each week, we’ll share a new themed playlist, embedded for your convenience! You can copy the track list to your service of choice, or listen right here. Have a sweet playlist of your own? Share it with us in the comments below!
