Among the tracks featured are Migos and their 2021 single “Straightenin;” and Drake’s “Wants and Needs,” featuring rapper Lil Baby, who makes the list for a second year.

Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open” also made the cut as well as SZA’s “Good Days,” Brandi Carlile (“Speak Your Mind”), Bob Dylan (“I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight”) and Bob Marley & the Wailers (“Exodus”), George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord;” Joni Mitchell, The Rolling Stones and Ella Fitzgerald.

It’s no secret that Obama is a huge lover of music. He has been releasing a summer playlist since he was in the White House. 

“I sing in the shower, I sing outside of the shower. I am unembarrassed about singing,” Obama said during his Renegades: Born in the USA podcast with rock icon Bruce Springsteen in March. “My daughters and my wife sometimes roll their eyes.”

Last December, the former president shared his “Favorite Music of 2020″ list — featuring Bad Bunny, Dua Lipa, Lil Baby and Megan Thee Stallion.
