Continuing the yearly tradition of sharing his choice of music with the public, former US President Barack Obama has unveiled his annual summer playlist for 2020.
Music artists that feature on the list include Megan thee Stallion, Billie Eilish and The Chicks.
Taking to twitter and Instagram, Obama wrote: “Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time listening to music with my family. I wanted to share some of my favourites from the summer.”
He continued, “As always, it’s a mix of genres that travels through various eras. I think there’s something in here for everybody — hope you enjoy it.”
Among the tracks included on Obama’s playlist include Beyoncé and Megan thee Stallion’s “Savage Remix,” Eilish’s “My Future,” “For What It’s Worth” by "Pose" star Billy Porter, and “Gemini” by rapper Princess Nokia.
Dua Lipa also makes an appearance, via “Un Dia (One Day),” her collaboration with J Balvin, Bad Bunny and Tainy, as do tracks by Childish Gambino, Frank Ocean and HAIM.
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.
Barack Obama tweeted 44 songs Saturday that he and his wife, Michelle, have been listening to. They include Drake's "Too Good," Steely Dan's "Reelin' in the Years" and the Sinatra standard "I've Got You Under My Skin."
