The “Hometown” playlist features hand-picked favorites from guest curators and Chicago-based artists like Chance the Rapper, Mavis Staples, Jennifer Hudson, and Dan Aykroyd.
“We asked you to share songs that remind you of home and inspire you to be involved in your communities,”a post about the playlist on the Obama Foundation’s website reads. “From India to Indiana, you delivered. Our first batch features Chicago, but over the next few weeks, we’ll add more and more songs that remind you of your hometown.”
Songs vary from Sinatra’s “Chicago” to Kanye’s “Homecoming.”
The former president released his first summer playlists on Spotify back in 2015, one for the daytime, and one for the evening. These featured classics like Nina Simone and Bob Dylan along with more contemporary celebrated stars like John Legend and Florence + the Machine. He also released a workout playlist which featured pump-up artists like Beyoncé, Drake, and Jay Z.
Whether in or out of office, Obama sure knows how to get his groove on. Listen to the playlist on Spotify here.
