Earlier today, President Obama shared two summer playlists via twitter. Obama’s summer playlist features a wide range of artists from Prince to Chance The Rapper. According to the White House, the songs were all “hand-selected” by the president himself.

Obama created one playlist for the daytime and the other for the nighttime. Also, some of the artists on the playlist have actually had the opportunity to perform at the White House such as Janelle Monae, Sara Bareilles and Esperanza Spalding. The playlists are available on the White House official Spotify account.
