Former U.S President, Barrack Obama has dropped his summer playlist of 44 songs and as usual, it’s a blend of different genres: R&B, pop, hip-hop and others. The list features songs like Beyonce’s Break My Soul, Kendrick Lamar’s Die Hard, Burna Boy’s Last Last, Tem’s Vibe Out, Prince’s Let’s Go Crazy, Drake and Rihanna’s on Too Good and many more.

Barack Obama made his first summer playlist in 2015 after creating a Spotify account. According to an article written by Obama’s white house staff, “when asked to pick a few of his favourite 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.” Since then, Obama’s summer playlist has been one of the things to look out for in the summer.

Obama’s summer and year-end picks in recent years have included songs from Mitski, Mdou Moctar, Phoebe Bridgers, Bad Bunny, Wye Oak, Arooj Aftab, Rema and more.

Speaking on the newly released 2022 summer playlist, Barrack Obama wrote on his Twitter account, “every year, I get excited to share my summer playlist because I learn about so many new artists from your replies, it’s an example of how music really can bring us all together. Here’s what I’ve been listening to this summer. What songs would you add?
