Spotify Releases Playlists Of What Obama Listens To

First Lady Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama Dance Together at the Presidents Ball

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:
