Thanks, Tidal.

If you’re still thinking about DJ D-Nice‘s star-studded Club Quarantine sets (particularly his Saturday set on March 21, that was attended by Mark Zuckerberg and Michelle Obama) you’re in luck — there now exists a 15-hour playlist inspired by the DJ’s parties.

Tidal has shared a “D-Nice: Club Quarantine” playlist that clocks in at a little over 15-and-a-half hours, and features 193 tracks from Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan, Marvin Gaye, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill and others.

“Relive the the flyest virtual party with this playlist inspired by the talented DJ himself, D-Nice,” a description of the playlist reads on the Tidal website.

D-Nice recently spoke to Gayle King about the inspiration behind his Club Quarantine sets.

“I was at home self-isolating, just sitting here,” he said. “Then I realized outside of just missing my family, that the most important thing to me was the crowd, DJing for people. I woke up at four in the morning and just decided I wanted to throw a party.”

“It was supposed to just be for my friends on Instagram,” he continued. “The next day, I hooked up the turntables. I noticed the crowd started to grow. John Legend was in there. I called Dave Chappelle up, he jumped in. The next day, J. Lo came, Drake arrived. And then that Saturday night party, like everyone was there.”

The first session, on Wednesday, ran for nearly 10 hours. By Saturday, presidential candidates like Bernie Sanders and tech titans like Mark Zuckerberg showed up. However, the most shocking to D-Nice was Michelle Obama.

“I put in a call to see if I could get the former First Lady in there,” he said. “The moment she popped in, I just froze. And it’s not like I hadn’t DJ’d for her before. I was like ‘I don’t know what to play!'”
