Barack and Michelle Obama just proved that they are part of the "cool" parents crowd by releasing their much-anticipated summer 2019 playlist.


The playlist is filled with today's top hits, including songs by SZA, Ella Mai, Mac Miller, Drake, and a lot more.

Barack and Michelle Obama have always been quite open about their preferences, and that includes their taste in music and books.


This summer, they decided to release a playlist with a mix of both old and new songs, with the likes of Frank Sinatra and The Rolling Stones listed amongst Lil Nas X, Beyonce, and Drake.

Suggested Summer Playlist

The 44-song playlist shows what exactly the Obamas have been blasting in their home this summer, with songs like "Senorita" by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, "Boo'd Up" by Ella Mai, "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" by Stevie Wonder, and "It's A Vibe" by 2 Chainz ft. Dolla $ign, Trey Songz, and Jhene Aiko.

On Instagram, Barack captioned his list with:


"With summer winding down, here's a sampling of what Michelle and I have been listening to - some new, some old, some fast, some slow. Hope you enjoy."


Suggested Reading List

Along with his list of songs, Barack also shared his recommendations for books, which he enjoyed this summer. Having retired from politics, Barack has had a lot more time to enjoy reading.

This summer, his reading list included works of Toni Morrison like "The Bluest Eye," "Beloved," "Sula," and "The Song of Solomon" among many others.

Toni Morrison is one of Barack's favorite authors, having met her in the White House when she was alive. She passed away at age 88 just this month, August 5, 2019.

In total, his reading list included 11 books, proving just how much time he spends reading.

Aside from the collected works of Toni Morrison, the list also included books from Haruki Murakami, Ted Chiang, Colson Whitehead, Lauren Wilkinson, Nicholas Carr, Hope Jahren, Tea Obreht, Dinaw Mengestu, and Stephanie Land.
