The fantastic mix is reminding lots of people that this is the last summer Obama will be our POTUS and has the internet feeling all sorts of nostalgia already.
The list was made specifically for Spotify, and you can either go there directly from your personal app or stream it online through the link at the White House website itself. When you’re done listening, you can always check out the FLOTUS song choices on her own #GirlPower playlist or listen to some throwback tunes he chose for summer last year.
