He’s the leader of the free world and apparently really likes listening to Beyoncé; Spotify has released two playlists ‘hand-crafted’ by the president of the United States.

Today, the White House joined Spotify — and our inaugural playlist was hand-picked by none other than President Obama. When asked to pick a few of his favorite songs for the summer, the President got serious. He grabbed a pen and paper and drafted up not one, but two separate summer playlists: One for the daytime, and one for the evening,” a White House official said in a press release.

The two playlists are listed below:
