Listen To: President Obama’s Spotify Playlist

Well…we’ve all got to admit that President Barack Obama, is hands down the coolest and hippest President there’s ever been, and maybe ever will be. I knew this guy is up to speed with technology, but I was surprised to find out that he has his own Spotify playlist. I took some time to check out the list of artists he selected. While I genuinely believe that he would use Spotify, I was curious as to how this list came about. Featuring everything from one of my all-time favorite bands, Earth Wind & Fire, Ledisi, U2, Aretha Franklin, Bruce Springsteen…and probably the most expected one, Al Green. I was secretly hoping to see Janelle Monae, J. Cole, and possibly a little Jay-Z. However…disregarding my opinion…feel free to check out the President’s Spotify playlist here.
