The former First Lady recently tweeted her hope for a more focused life as she shared her 2020 workout playlist. Michelle had captioned the tweet with:

"It's about that time when New Year's resolutions get a bit harder to stick to. To offer a little inspiration, I want to share my go-to #WorkoutPlaylist with you. These songs always seem to give me that extra boost to get through my toughest workouts. What's on your playlist?"


The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the mother-of-two had included top songs like Lizzo's "Soulmate," Cardi B.'s "Press," and Beyoncé's "Before I Let Go."

Other songs on the list were Ed Sheeran's "Cross Me," Bruno Mars' "Perm," the clean version of late Nipsey Hussle's "Hussle & Motivate," Childish Gambino's "3005," and Koffee's "Toast."

The 56-year-old author and her husband, Barack Obama, have become known for occasionally sharing what songs are on their favorites list.

People recalled that Barack had shared a list of his top music picks of the year as 2019 drew to a close.

The 58-year-old had included a variety of artists and music genres that saw Beyonce and Lil Nas X, indie rock artists Big Thief and Sharon Van Etten on his list.

The list also featured DaBaby's "Suge," as well as tracks from Ocean, Alicia Keys, Burna Boy, Rema, and Maggie Rogers.

Upon the release of Michelle's list, Time mentioned that the author has continued to speak openly about her efforts to work out more.

In light of that, the entrepreneur would often share images of herself at the gym.

Michelle also began the "Let's Move" campaign – a movement that encouraged physical activity and healthy eating to fight childhood obesity.

Michelle has enjoyed the support of many celebrities, including Beyoncé, who partnered with her on the cause.

The musical powerhouse is no stranger to the Obama family as it will be recalled that she sang the American anthem at Barack's presidential inauguration in 2013.
