Knowing how daughter Malia fancies Joey Badass, I would have expected more hip-hop on this playlist, but I do like the fact that Obama included Jay Z's "Off That," which doesn't name-check him directly but does note that there is a "black president."


Obama did include a few old-school classics, including "Live It Up" by the Isley Brothers, "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" by Sting and "Could You Be Loved" by Bob Marley and the Wailers.
