Classic songs that appear on the playlist include “My Baby Just Cares for Me” by Nina Simone, “Do I Do” by Stevie Wonder and “Goodbye Jimmy Read” by Bob Dylan.

Rapper Chika, whose track “Crown” makes an appearance on the playlist, tweeted her excitement over its inclusion.

“Excuse my language but B****HH,” she wrote. She also jokingly urged her followers to not alert Obama to her track “Balencies,” which directly references the former US president.

Obama has published summer playlists every year since 2015.
