As summer winds down, Barack Obama is letting everyone know what he's been listening to during the last few months.

In a tweet today, the former U.S. President revealed a playlist of songs that he and his wife Michelle have been listening to. Also, "Reelin" in the Years' by Steely Dan is there, so Barack and Michelle must have been binging on RTE's greatest series.

There's no "Hot Girl Summer" (sorry), but the list does include more than one appearance from Jay Z and Beyoncé and current hits like Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, which broke a record for staying at No. 1 on the Billboard chart for 19 weeks. "WE'RE FRIENDS NOW I DONT MAKE THE RULES", an elated Lizzo wrote.

"I'm just sayin we anxious bout the wrong things let's just listen to the policies and stop talkin bout the (expletive) that don't matter ya know", she tweeted, adding that she also likes Elizabeth Warren and will not officially endorse any candidates on Twitter.
