“With summer winding down, here’s a sampling of what Michelle and I have been listening to—some new, some old, some fast, some slow,” said President Obama. “Hope you enjoy.”

“Old Town Road” topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 19 consecutive weeks in 2019, which is the longest run in the chart’s history.
