President Barack Obama released his second and final summer playlist as POTUS in a tweet Thursday ― presumably the soundtrack to life in the White House. 

Rap artist Wale, who appears first on Obama’s daytime list with his hit “LoveHate Thing,” replied to the president’s tweet: “POTUS knows. #1.”

Other Twitter users praised Obama’s musical taste and begged him to stay in office.

Obama’s 2016 summer playlist, available on Spotify, shows his preference for upbeat jams in the day and love songs at night. Both collections feature oldies and contemporary tunes from American and international artists.

When the sun goes down, he’s listening to romantic tunes such as Denise LaSalle’s “Trapped By A Thing Called Love,” Billie Holiday’s “Lover Man,” Miles Davis’ “My Funny Valentine” and Janet Jackson’s “I Get Lonely.”

During the day, he’s getting pumped blasting “So Ambitious” by Jay Z featuring Pharrell, “The Man” by Aloe Blacc, “Me Gustas Tu” by Manu Chao and “Don’t Owe You A Thing” by Gary Clark Jr.

Obama first shared his collection of favorite summer tunes on the official White House Spotify account last year. And back in 2008, as a presidential hopeful, he shared his favorite iPod tracks.
