Offering further proof that President Obama is the closest this nation has ever come to a leader that properly represents and speaks to its younger generations, POTUS has just rounded off his second annual Summer Playlist series. A follow-up to the "Day" playlist, "Night" is a banger of a mix—and we mean that in every sense of the word. With D'Angelo, Janet Jackson, and more, the curated selection is a pretty clear tip-off as to what the President uses to woo and Our Lord And Savior Michelle Obama when the lights go out.

Like many Americans, the playlist raises many urgent question, such as: when Fiona Apple's "Criminal" comes on, does Michelle mouth along to the words "You've been a bad, bad boy"? Do they make it through the full mix every time? Is Barack actually the one who chooses these songs, or is it a special intern's responsibility to make selects? What exactly is his answer to the prompt in the playlist's opening track, Chrisette Michele's "If I Had My Way"?And when that song comes on, does the staff take that as a "do not disturb" notice?

We may never know the answers to these questions, but we do know this: should the presidential tradition continue, we would much rather hear Hillary and Bill Clinton's mix over Donald and Melania Trump's come summer 2017. If we had to guess, we'd say the former probably doesn't include any Beyoncé.
