As the end of summer draws near, former President Barack Obama graced us with his annual playlist of some of the Obamas' favorite summer jams. 

Obama shared in an August 24 tweet 44 of his and former First Lady Michelle Obama's favorite current and classic hits on his 2019 playlist.

“With summer winding down, here’s a sampling of what Michelle and I have been listening to — some new, some old, some fast, some slow,” Obama wrote of the playlist. “Hope you enjoy.”

This year's list has something for all types of music fans. Popular hits like Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (Remix)” featuring country music legend Billy Ray Cyrus, Lizzo’s “Juice” and Beyonce’s “Mood 4 Eva.”

There are also timeless tracks from Lauryn Hill, The Spinners, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder. For fans of SZA, Daniel Caesar and H.E.R, there are a few tracks listed just for you.

The Obamas are no strangers to great music. Just last year, the former president released a list featuring legendary artists Prince, Mavis Staples, Chance the Rapper, Cardi B, Leon Bridges, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar.
