US President Barack Obama prefers to listen to the rest of the composition of a rock band The Beach Boys, as well as songs by Prince (1958-2016), jazz singer Billie Holiday (1915-1959) and the rapper Jay-Z. This is the head of the American administration, conducting vacation on Martha's Vineyard Island off the coast of Massachusetts, said on his page on Twitter.
"Been waiting to drop this: summer playlist, the encore. What's everybody listening to?" - wrote the president on Thursday.
In the list of the musical preferences of 55-year-old Obama, in particular, included such compositions as Good Vibrations band The Beach Boys, Lover Man Holiday, So Ambitious Jay-Z, U Got the Look Prince. He also said that he likes the creativity of the singer in the style of rhythm and blues Aretha Franklin, jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, Janet Jackson and singer Esperanza Spalding. Total President mentioned 39 songs and compositions, and distributed them - almost equally - those that he listens to the morning, and those who enjoy the evenings.
This is the second and probably the last time President publishes such a list. Last year, he enrolled in the Swedish music service Spotify, which was interpreted in the media as one of the measures for the "expansion of the White House in the presence of social networks."
Obama with his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha went to Martha's Vineyard on August 6, and plans to stay there until the end of next week. Presidential family rented one of the houses on this Atlantic resort for the seventh time.
