Looks like the former president is feeling “savage” this summer.
Barack Obama has released his long awaited 2020 summer playlist, which is just what many needed during these unprecedented times. In a tweet Monday, Obama explains that the songs have been favorites among him and his family, whom he has been spending more time with amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Some of the artists that made the list include Rihanna, Beyoncé, Nas, Otis Redding, Bob Dylan, H.E.R., Sheryl Crow, Billie Ellish, John Legend, The Chicks, Jennifer Hudson and Common. Other artists who were also included are slated to perform at this week’s Democratic National Convention.
