The US President’s Summer Playlist

The US President’s Summer Playlist

It’s not every day that the President of the United States drops a mix tape, but when it happens, we listen. This week’s featured playlist comes from the highest office in the US directly.

Technically, the President released two playlists. One, for summer days with some upbeat jams from artists like Leon Bridges, Common and Sara Bareilles for Americans to listen to while they get outside, hit the beach and have fun, and Australians to listen to while they miss doing all those things. The second is a night time playlist featuring Carmen McRae, Tower of Power and Billie Holiday. The latter is a more easy-listening playlist for watching the stars or… you know, whatever else you guys get up to at night. We’re not judging, Mr President.

You can find the entire track list in the image above or on the President’s Twitter here. We’ve also compiled most of the songs in a Spotify playlist below. A few are missing due to Spotify’s licensing, but there’s still plenty to listen to.

Welcome to our Featured Playlist series. Each week, we’ll share a new themed playlist, embedded for your convenience! You can copy the track list to your service of choice, or listen right here. Have a sweet playlist of your own? Share it with us in the comments below!
