Barack and Michelle Obama are arguably the most musically aware couple that has ever graced the White House: They called on Beyonce to sing on Inauguration day, they consistently support Chance the Rapper in any and all of his endeavors, and apparently they’ve fed Frank Ocean raviolis.
Music and its culture seem to have been a solid thread in the 25-year relationship between the former president and first lady, and Michelle took the time to highlight that with a Spotify playlist especially curated for her man — “my one and only,” as she called him in an adorable tweet with the playlist — this Valentine’s Day.
“Forever Mine” is exactly the kind of old school and modern mix we’ve learned to expect from Barack and Michelle. The sweeping 44-track playlist includes classics from Diana Ross, Etta James, and Barry White, but it also develops and spans across artists like Miguel, Kendrick Lamar, and H.E.R.
Here’s hoping that we can all receive maybe just half of the amount of love between Michelle and Barack this Valentine’s Day.1 of 1
