The day list includes jazz, soul, hip-hop songs and even The Beach Boys. My favorite selection from the day list is Common’s “Forever Begins.” In addition to thought provoking songs, The President tossed in a nod to himself with “Classic Man” by Jidenna.

Blige on “I’ll Be There For You.” I get a warm glow inside as I think of Barack and Michelle smiling together as they grove to “I got a love jones for you body and your skin tone...”
The Whitehouse Spotify channel started in 2015. Since then the White House has also used Spotify to share the First Lady’s girl-power picks for National Day of the Girl and holiday playlists curated by the Obamas and the Bidens.
