The Obamas share a seasonal sequence.
Curator-in-chief, Barack Obama, is on a roll.
PLAYLIST: Okayplayer’s Songs of Summer 2019
Earlier this week, the former president shared a list of reading recommendations. And now, he’s returned with yet another summer playlist. In an Instagram post, Obama passed on his “sampling of what Michelle and I have been listening to,” featuring 40+ cuts from Anderson . Paak, Jill Scott, Lizzo, Ty Dolla $ign, Q-Tip, Frank Sinatra, Raphael Saadiq and so many more. The Obamas’ playlist game has been strong since even before they left the White House, sharing a Valentine’s Day sequence last year, along with a two-part summer 2016 playlist, featuring “daytime” and “nighttime” editions.
And if you’re keen on the idea of post-presidential, playlist-pushing Obama, a recent deal with Spotify could make that a more regular occurrence. Pair that with a slate of upcoming documentaries for Netflix and The Obamas are kinda killing this whole streaming thing.
You can hear Obama’s selections in an actual playlist via Pitchfork below. Hold tight for their next transmission.
