Barack Obama’s 2022 Summer Playlist: Listen Here

Can you imagine Barack Obama yelling Rosalía’s “SAOKO” as he speeds around Martha’s Vinyard on his kickstand rocket, or sipping a stiff drink while Harry Styles’ “Music for a Sushi Restaurant” plays in the background? Perhaps you saw him in the pit listening to Wet Leg’s “Angelica” or talking about Kendrick Lamar’s “Die Hard” while waiting in line for a coffee? It’s more realistic than you might think, because the former president has shared his summer 2022 playlist.⁠

“Each year I’m thrilled to share my summer playlist because I learn about so many new artists from your responses – it’s an example of how music can truly bring us together,” Obama wrote in an article accompanying this year’s summer playlist. “Here is what I listened to this summer. What songs would you add? »

In addition to the aforementioned tracks, Obama is spinning Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul,” Kacey Musgraves’ “Keep Looking Up,” Tems’ “Vibe Out,” Maggie Rogers’ “That’s Where I Am,” and Hope Tala’s “Cherries.”

Some older fares are also included, such as “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen, “Let’s Go Crazy” by Prince, “Blue in Green” by Miles Davis, “I’m Shakin” by Jack White and “Praise” by Fatboy Slim. You.”
