Barack Obama has published a playlist of 20 songs that influenced him during his presidency.
To coincide with the release of his latest book, A Promised Land, Obama released a mixtape of his favorite songs.
Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, and Eminem were among the artists featured on the playlist.
The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, and Jay-Z were among the performers.
Obama, 59, posted the playlist on Instagram, along with explanations for his selections, which include Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, and Gloria Estefan.
I used to listen to Jay-“My Z’s 1st Hit” or Frank Sinatra’s “Luck Be a Lady” when reviewing my notes before debates. Michelle and I invited artists including Stevie Wonder and Gloria Estefan to hold afternoon workshops with young people before hosting an evening show in the East Room during our time in the White House.
“And there were all kinds of performances I’ll never forget – like Beyoncé performing ‘At Last’ for our first dance at our inauguration, Paul McCartney serenading Michelle in the East Room, and Bob Dylan flashing me a smile before disappearing after his performance of ‘Times They Are a-Changin’,” he added.
