President Obama just dropped his summer '16 playlist


We all know President Obama loves music, loves to dance and occasionally break out in song. So when he dropped his highly anticipated presidential mixtape on Twitter, we had to check it out. Ok, ok, it wasn't a mixtape per se, but it is a list that essentially lets music lovers know if your jam is also a favorite of the president. Last year, he released a similar list on Spotify, but dubbed this summer's list "the encore."

He tweeted both playlists.

His daytime list is way more upbeat. Are we the only ones that noticed none of Beyoncé's "Lemonade" is on there? (Insert side eyes emoji here)

We're going to give his nighttime playlist an A+. Anytime you have Chance the Rapper, Billie Holiday, D'Angelo, and Floetry on the same playlist, it automatically wins.

Overall, we give his summer playlist two Carlton dances.
