The White House announced on Friday President Obama created a music channel on Spotify, featuring his favorite singers, including Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Coldplay. The president hand-picked 40 songs and divided them into two playlists, one he can enjoy during the day and another he can listen to at night.

For his daytime playlist, Obama has such songs as “Live It Up” by The Isley Brothers, Bob Dylan’s “Tombstone Blues,” Coldplay’s “Paradise,” and Stevie Wonder’s “Another Star.” Other songs the president likes to listen to in the morning are “Rock Steady” by Aretha Franklin, “Pusher Love Girl” by Justin Timberlake, “Shake It Out” by Florence + The Machine, and “Green Light” by John Legend and Andre 3000.

Obama’s night time playlist features Al Green’s “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart,” Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo’s “Nothing Even Matters,” Frank Sinatra’s “The Best Is Yet To Come,” and Joni Mitchell’s Help Me.”

Beyonce also made the cut for her song “Superpower,” with Frank Ocean. You’ll recall, Beyonce performed for Obama twice in 2013. The first time was his inauguration ceremony, where she sang the National Anthem, and then later that night when she performed Etta James’ “At Last” during the inaugural ball.
