Obama just dropped a summer playlist

By Ro S

President Barack Obama, who's currently on a sixteen-day vacation in Martha's Vineyard with his family, just released a 2016 playlist of his favorite summer jams via Spotify on Thursday.

"Been waiting to drop this: summer playlist, the encore," he tweeted on the official @POTUS account. "What's everybody listening to?"

The playlist is split into "daytime" and "nighttime" editions. The artist roster across both is diverse, ranging from jazz cats like Charles Mingus and Nina Simone, to rappers Nas and Jay-Z, to alt-pop stars Sara Bareilles and Edward Sharpe.

You can listen to the full playlists on the White House’s Spotify channel, which published a similar list a year ago.
