President Obama Shares His Summer Playlist with Chance the Rapper, Prince & More


Along with being one of the coolest presidents this country will ever have in a long time, Barack Obama also has an equally awesome music taste. He shared his latest playlist today, which evokes the feeling of summer's end.

The president created two playlists for daytime and nighttime. The first includes a mix of new and classic feel-good songs like Janelle Monaé's "Tightrope," Jidenna's "Classic Man," Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" and Nina Simone's "Sinnerman." But it is the nighttime edition that finds our Commander-In-Chief getting a little more...sensual:

This one is more suited for midnight swims in the ocean and opening a bottle of bubbly on a rooftop, thanks to songs like Billie Holiday's "Lover Man," Janet Jackson's "I Get Lonely," Floetry's "Say Yes" and Chance the Rapper's "Acid Rain."

Before you get to grooving to the playlists, see our behind-the-scenes Crash the Parties action at the Democratic National Convention below:
