Former President Barack Obama has been putting annual summer playlists and he did the same for 2020 yesterday prior to Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention. Needless to say, fans believed that Mr. Obama had some solid selections for this playlist.

"Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time listening to music with my family. I wanted to share some of my favorites from the summer—including songs from some of the artists at this week’s @DemConvention. Hope you enjoy it."

One surprise pick was Rihanna's "Work" single featuring Drake which was released over four years ago but is still one of the most popular records ever released by her. Obama also included more hot 2020 tracks such as "Made It" by Teyana Taylor which appeared on her new 'The Album' project along with J. Cole's "The Climb Back" single. This is set to appear on his upcoming 'The Fall Off' album which was announced by the Dreamville rapper last month.

Another Obama who made headlines last night was Barack's wife and former First Lady, Michelle. She spoke at the Democratic National Convention and delivered a powerful speech. She emphasized that Donald Trump is not the right person to lead the United States for another four years. She also stressed that people need to show up to the polls and stand in line as long as they need to. This includes packing some good shoes and meals that would last the entire time.
