Barack Obama has diverse taste in music.
On Tuesday, the former U.S. president shared his 2022 summer playlist, featuring songs by Beyoncé, Harry Styles, Bad Bunny and more.
“Every year, I get excited to share my summer playlist because I learn about so many new artists from your replies—it’s an example of how music really can bring us all together,” he wrote on Twitter.
