Michelle Obama Shares Workout Playlist: Lizzo, Cardi B, Beyonce
Frank Ocean, Sam Smith, Pink Sweat$ and more make former First Lady’s “Cool Down” mix
“It’s about that time when New Year’s resolutions get a bit harder to stick to,” Michelle Obama tweeted Sunday. “To offer a little inspiration, I want to share my go-to #WorkoutPlaylist with you. These songs always seem to give me that extra boost to get through my toughest workouts. What’s on your playlist?”
The former First Lady’s workout playlist is divided into two sections: Upbeat R&B and (clean versions of) hip-hop tracks for the actual physical portion, with more laidback songs for the “cool down.”
Obama’s workout mix includes Childish Gambino’s “3005,” Lizzo’s “Soulmate,” multiple Bruno Mars hits (“Perm” and “Finesse (Remix)”), three Cardi B tracks (“Press” and her appearances on “South of the Border” and “Finesse”) and more, while the “Cool Down” boasts Frank Ocean (“Godspeed”), Pink Sweat$, Meek Mill with Elle Mai and others.
As First Lady, Obama guided the White House’s Let’s Move! public health campaign that encouraged a healthier lifestyle and combatted childhood obesity.
