Barack Obama’s 2023 Summer Playlist Features Ice Spice, Drake, 2Pac and More
On Thursday (July 20), Barack Obama shared a list of songs he bumped to the most this summer on Twitter. In the tweet below, the 44th president reminded his followers of the annual tradition. He also revealed that his selection was a combination of throwback hits and current bangers, too.
“Like I do every year, here are some songs I’ve been listening to this summer — a mix of old and new,” Barack Obama wrote in the tweet. “Look forward to hearing what I’ve missed.”
This year’s list includes Ice Spice‘s first No 1. song on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart, “Princess Diana (Remix)” featuring Nicki Minaj, and J. Hus’ single, “Who Told You” featuring Drake. Rap legends like 2Pac and Nas also secured a spot on the list. Last year, Barack Obama only picked one hip-hop song for his annual playlist, Kendrick Lamar‘s “The Heart Part 5.”
