Don’t bother opening Spotify unless you plan on listening to Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-Calif.) new playlist, which she dropped yesterday to celebrate African-American Music Appreciation Month.

Clocking in at just over three hours, the 45-song playlist spans several decades and genres, encompassing pop, soul, hip-hop, and R&B. Classics like the Jackson 5’s “ABC” and Prince’s “Kiss” nestle alongside Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” and Migos’ “T-Shirt,” and the California senator reps her home state with Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” and 2 Pac and Dr. Dre’s “California Love.”

“No matter where you are from or what you look like, music is a bond that can bring us all together,” Harris told Blavity. “To celebrate African-American music is to dance, sing, and even march to the rhythms that have long served as vehicles for honesty, inspiration, struggle, success and joy.”

Harris recently made headlines for her persistent questioning of James Comey on Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ potential involvement in the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling with the 2016 presidential election. Her pointed interrogation skills and stellar music taste make her the breakout Democrat of 2017.
