Barack Obama just dropped a summer playlist and it's fire

Never one to shy away from making a claim to be the coolest US President ever, Barack Obama has surely just claimed the crown forever, as he drops his and Michelle’s summer playlist.

The playlist is yet another indication that the Obama’s are the most down to earth and connected leading family since The Lincolns. The playlist is comprised of some old school classics, like A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Can I Kick It’ as well as the biggest selling artists of recent times Drake and Beyonce.

There are also spots on the list for Far Out favourite Maggie Rogers and the latest darling of the r’n’b world Lizzo. But this isn’t all bops to make the summer BBQ bang, no, there’s also a whole host of alternative rock.

Classic act Steely Dan finds a spot while Sharon Van Etten‘s incredible song ‘Seventeen’ also finds a slot on the list. But enough of us telling you who is on this, the best way to get to know the playlist is to listen to it. Find it below
