People say that you can tell a lot about a person from the music that they listen to. Well what does Barack Obama’s playlist say about him? Previously, we didn’t know what to expect from the POTUS, but since we’ve already heard the POTUS sing a little Al Green or Amazing Grace at the drop of a dime, it’s safe to say that he would have a little soul on his music playlist.

Check out Mr. President’s playlist mixed with some Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, but there’s also some Coldplay, Mos Def, Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo. “Due to popular request, here are my vacation playlists,” the President tweeted, linking to a pair of 20-song Spotify playlists.
