Michelle Obama made Barack a Valentine’s playlist—and it’s precious



Just days after unveiling their instantly iconic portraits at the National Portrait Gallery, the Obamas are back to being America’s most inspiring couple.

Former first lady Michelle Obama celebrated Valentine’s Day on Wednesday with a relatable gesture. She tweeted a link to a 44-song Spotify playlist titled “Forever Mine,” which she dedicated to her “one and only,” former President Barack Obama.

The former first lady has done her part to lay out the perfect soundtrack for a date with her husband, or one very much like him. There’s fun, upbeat stuff like Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” and Rihanna’s “We Found Love” for when you’re ready to bust a move. It’s also peppered with more classic mom-and-dad-night-in fare like Heatwave’s “Always and Forever” for when the time comes to share a single spaghetti noodle.

All in all, it’s very easy to imagine the Obamas ordering some takeout and lighting a scented candle to this thing—just like the rest of us.
