Barack Obama drops sensual playlist for the summer

The POTUS has released a 35-track compilation that we didn’t know we needed until now – and it’s quite steamy

Let’s just make this clear. In the final days of his presidency Barack Obama has cemented himself as the smoothest POTUS there has ever been, and he will probably retain that title for at least another four years.

Who could forget his mic drop after roasting Donald Trump and others at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Or when he penned a socially conscious essay on feminism that hit all the right notes? And when he literally hit all the right notes when singing the Al Green classic ‘Let’s Stay Together’?

So for all of you just waiting to hear more sultry Obama-themed tones. Wait no more. The president has dropped his summer ‘16 playlist. Released on The White House’s Spotify channel, there is a ‘Daytime’ and a ‘Nighttime’ edition.

It must be said the 'Nighttime' playlist could double up as the soundtrack to a lovely evening BBQ, but might be more appropriate for a vibesy romantic listen for two; featuring tracks by D’Angelo, Janet Jackson and Floetry. So smooth.

With classic tracks like “Sinnerman” by Nina Simone and “Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys, the 'Daytime' playlist pretty appropriate for presidential summer frolics. Except for when the lawmaker slips in “As We Enter” by Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley which has the lyrics ‘I got the guns and I got the ganja’.
