While President Donald Trump was busy bragging about tax cuts and eliminating the Environmental Protection Agency, Ivanka and Jared might’ve been getting down and nasty, according the Huffington Post.
A new 21-minuted playlist suddenly appeared under Ivanka Trump’s Spotify profile on Oct. 15, her first since she published a holiday party curation in 2015. While the mix is pretty innocuous and tame, the debutante dropped the new playlist 10 days before her and Jared’s eighth wedding anniversary.
With a title that reads more a like a passcode to one’s phone or house alarm—“991122,” which HuffPo notes is the HTML code for red—the five-song playlist features a small gamut of superstars like John Legend and Bruno Mars. It opens with Legend’s chart-topping single “Best of Me,” followed by his reconciliatory single “Ordinary People.”
The tempo doesn’t pick up from there, with Bruno Mars’ sappy “When I Was Your Man” coming third on the list, right before James Blunt’s woeful lone hit “You’re Beautiful.” It ends with Adele’s melodramatic “When We Were Young.”
Ivanka Trump’s Spotify account is public, though it only has 1,000-plus followers. The playlist itself has ballooned in followers to 60 as of Wednesday evening.
Interpretations of this playlist can go anyway here. The sad nature of its songs lends it to sound more like the prelude to a breakup while the overly dramatic instrumental flourishes invoke an image of Jared and Ivanka waltzing around in a lavishly decorated ballroom at Mar-a-Lago.
Many aren’t convinced this was a sex playlist, while others had some song suggestions for the couple to consider.
Odd that Savage Garden’s Truly Madly Deeply didn’t make the cut

I thought for sure Social Distortion’s Prison Bound would be on the list

This is wildly boring. Somebody should have sent her my preemptive honeymoon playlist: https://t.co/AWj1RYpJwM

The presidential couple has remained mum. None of the celebrities or featured musicians have chimed in about the playlist. I give Chrissy Teigen until tomorrow.
