Questlove Recounts The Blackest White House Party Ever With President Obama

President Barack Obama threw a private party at The White House this weekend, and let Questlove tell it, it was a party for the ages.

In a post to his Instagram account, Questlove gushed about what sounds like a night full of incredible memories. Obama channeled his inner hip-hop head by requesting De La Soul perform of a very specific highlight from Stakes Is High, Bel Biv Devoe performed “Poison,” and Dave Chappelle was excited about playing with the Obama’s family dog.

In short: the blackest night in White House history.

Questlove’s caption: “Realist real list of thangs I seenT at the White House tonight: 10) the cp time factor of the first fam. Made me feel justified. 9) @usher & his 11th hour audible ideas 8) @morereginahall’s joking the Obama’s leaving is the most devastating occurrence since Free & AJ left #106thAndPark 7) Dave Chapelle flaunting the fact he got to play w Bo the Dog earlier 6) security expressing shock to me “wait, all to do in this house tonight and Chapelle was more excited about meeting the dog!? ? 5) Obama requesting the ENTIRE song #TheBizness be performed tonight & De La/Com making it a bboy affair. 4) 4 ladies snackin on chicken wangs at the WH piano 3) BBD KILLING “Poison” & everybody dancin w/ wreckless abandonment 2) me having my first Hennessy ever 1) d nice playing “Ante Up” “Party Up” “Make Am Say Uhh” “Shook Ones”—like the look on George Washington face as we defiantly sang EVERY lyric….haaaaaaa!!!!!!”

Attendees had to hand in their cell phones before entering the party, but according to ABC News, it was a night to remember. The Roots, De La Soul, Common, Usher, Jill Scott, Michelle Williams, Yolanda Adams, Janelle Monae, Yolanda Adams and Bel Biv Devoe all graced the stage. Obama has released several playlists during his presidency, and this lineup confirms his impeccable musical tastes.

The concert will be aired on BET on Tuesday, November 15.
