Watch Obama Tell David Letterman About Showing Off His ‘Dad Moves’ With Prince

David Letterman‘s forthcoming Netflix series My Guest Needs No Introduction is making its debut this week, and the first episode will feature none other than Barack Obama.

READ: President Obama Shares A Touching Tribute To Prince

Netflix released a teaser trailer Wednesday afternoon, which finds Letterman and Obama talking about the time the latter danced onstage with Prince a few months before his death.

“Prince asked Sasha to come up and dance and she’s an excellent dancer. Then Sasha pulls me up which surprises me because she always mocks my dancing,” Obama says. “I have dad moves.”

Following Prince’s death, Obama wrote a touching tribute to the legendary musician, calling him a “creative icon.”

“Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly, or touched quite so many people with their talent,” Obama said. “As one of the most gifted and prolific musicians of our time, Prince did it all. Funk. R&B. Rock and roll. He was a virtuoso instrumentalist, a brilliant bandleader, and an electrifying performer…nobody’s spirit was stronger, bolder, or more creative.”

Episodes for My Guest Needs No Introduction are set to drop once a month, with other guests including Jay-Z, George Clooney, and Tina Fey. The series debuts on Friday, January 12. A trailer for the show prior to the one with Obama was released last week.
