What do Lil Nas X, Stevie Wonder and Lizzo have in common? They all made former President Barack Obama‘s summer 2019 playlist.

The 44th president took to Twitter to share his summer playlist and its full of 44 amazing jams for Labor Day weekend.

“With summer winding down, here’s a sampling of what Michelle and I have been listening to — some new, some old, some fast, some slow,” Obama wrote. “Hope you enjoy.”

From classic songs like Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing” to modern bops like Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (Remix)” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, Obama included them all.

His taste is clearly versatile, with entries from Drake, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, 2 Chainz, Mac Miller, Robin Thicke, The Rolling Stones, John Legend and more.

Many of the artists included were, understandably, thrilled.

“WE’RE FRIENDS NOW I DON’T MAKE THE RULES!!!,” Lizzo tweeted when she saw that she made the cut.

While Lil Nas X offered a photoshopped image of a shirtless Obama in a silver cowboy suit.

If you don’t have plans for Labor Day just yet… you can now throw on Obama’s mix and chill POTUS style.
