Former Pres. Barack Obama’s playlist is out and jay-Z, Beyonce and Eminem make the cut

Former President Barack Obama has a new memoir coming out titled ‘The Promised Land’ and a corresponding playlist has been released.

The memoir which sees Pres. Obama explore themes of American politics and his significance of his tenure in the landscape of American leadership. According to The Guardian, “Obama makes clear he believes the whiplash from the 44th to 45th president is no accident. On the contrary, the mere fact that an accomplished, intelligent, scandal-free black man inhabited the White House was enough to trigger his antithesis.”

In celebration of the memoir which is set for release on 17th November 2020, the 44th President also shared a number of songs that have had a great effect on him.

He captioned the listing with an Instagram post saying, “Music has always played an important role throughout my life—and that was especially true during my presidency. While reviewing my notes ahead of debates, I’d listen to Jay-Z’s “My 1st Song” or Frank Sinatra’s “Luck Be a Lady.” Throughout our time in the White House, Michelle and I invited artists like Stevie Wonder and Gloria Estefan to conduct afternoon workshops with young people before performing an evening show in the East Room. And there were all sorts of performances I’ll always remember—like Beyoncé performing “At Last” for our first dance at our inauguration, Paul McCartney serenading Michelle in the East Room with, “Michelle” and Bob Dylan flashing me a grin before vanishing after his performance of “Times They Are a-Changin.” So in honor of my book coming out tomorrow, I thought I’d put together a playlist with some of those songs. Hope you enjoy it. #APromisedLand.

The 768-paged book is available for purchase today.
