Obama Releases His Summer Music Playlist
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. President Obama has again released his summer music playlist for the second year in a row, to rave reviews. It came out late last week. Featuring artists like Chance the Rapper and also The Beach Boys, it's eclectic. On Spotify, it jumped to No. 1 in a single day. And with the president out of a job in the new year, Spotify tells The New York Times they're keeping a spot open for him as a music curator. It's MORNING EDITION.
