Former president Barack Obama unleashed his annual summer playlist on Saturday morning (August 24).
Artists such as A Tribe Called Quest, The Spinners, Mac Miller and Drake were included on the 44-track playlist, which was carefully curated by 44 himself.
Several of the chosen ones have reacted to their inclusion on social media.
Burgeoning superstar Lizzo, for example, noted she’d just tweeted about Obama shortly before he released the 2019 edition.
“I TWEETED THIS AT 10:26AM AND ONE HOUR LATER PRESIDENT @barackobama TWEETED ABOUT ME!!!” she wrote in all caps. “WE’RE FRIENDS NOW I DONT MAKE THE RULES!!! STREAM JUICE!!! OBAMA’S 6# FAVORITE SONG RN.”
The caption read, “Make It Better for the winter playlist! @barackobama,” a reference to his Ventura cut with Smokey Robinson.
Erick Sermon, whose “Music” collaboration with Marvin Gaye made the list, was also moved by the honor.
