Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 3.18.41 PMPresident Obama has just dropped his new Summer 2016 daytime/nighttime music playlists on Spotify, with songs that make you wonder if he’s also trying to drop some sexy, romantic hints to his First Lady.Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 3.08.58 PM

Romance isn’t the only topic Obama’s playlists covers though, his song choices actually cover an interesting dynamic, ranging from topics about people who turn into haters when their friends are on top, to songs about yearning for the sensual touch of the one you love. Obama kicks off his daytime playlist with Wale’s, “Love Hate Song” and he ends his nighttime jams with Floetry’s sexy ballad, “Say Yes,” (hint, hint, Mrs. Obama, LOL).
