Eminem, Beyoncé, The Beatles: Check Out Obama’s Latest Playlist
In honor of his new book 'A Promised Land', former president Obama took to social media not only to spread word about her newly released book but to also put a classic Barack spin on it.
And, how does he put his spin on it? Well, the classic Obama playlist, or course. During President Obama's time in office, and ever since, the former president liked to curate and share playlists, usually sharing his favorite go to playlist of the year but, this time around, one specifically created for Michelle's book release.
President Obama went to Facebook yesterday to share his specially made playlist that includes Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan and Jay Z:
Here's what he had to say about his picks:
Music has always played an important role throughout my life—and that was especially true during my presidency. While reviewing my notes ahead of debates, I’d listen to Jay-Z’s “My 1st Song” or Frank Sinatra’s “Luck Be a Lady.” Throughout our time in the White House, Michelle and I invited artists like Stevie Wonder and Gloria Estefan to conduct afternoon workshops with young people before performing an evening show in the East Room. And there were all sorts of performances I’ll always remember—like Beyoncé performing “At Last” for our first dance at our inauguration, Paul McCartney serenading Michelle in the East Room with, “Michelle" and Bob Dylan flashing me a grin before vanishing after his performance of “Times They Are a-Changin.” So in honor of my book, A Promised Land, coming out tomorrow, I thought I’d put together a playlist with some of those songs. Hope you enjoy it.
Here is the playlist to hear, without Jay Z's 'My First Song' (this song was unavailable on Jay Z's YouTube page):
