Some say it with flowers, some say it with chocolate, but Michelle Obama just professed her love for Barack with an incredible, 44-song Spotify playlist in honor of the forty-fourth president, and it’s one of the most romantic things we’ve seen this Valentine’s Day.
The playlist is called “Forever Mine,” and it features a gorgeous photo of the former First Couple on its cover. It’s packed with some lovely old-school classics, including Ben E. King’s “Stand by Me,” Etta James’ “At Last,” and Barry White’s “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Baby.” But the Obamas have also always shown us that they’re up on new music too. (Remember when Barack revealed his favorite tracks of 2017 included songs by Frank Ocean, SZA, and J Balvin?) So we’re not surprised that Michelle also added jams like “Get You” by Daniel Caesar and Kali Uchis, “I Found You” by Alabama Shakes, and “Love” by Kendrick Lamar and Zacari, plus music from John Legend, Beyoncé, and Ed Sheeran.
We can’t say the sweeping gesture comes as a total surprise—Michelle and Barack have been making us believe in love for a while now with their public displays of affection. Back in 2014 Michelle shared some sweet insight into how the couple has kept the romance going in their now-25-year marriage: “When the kids go to bed and after he’s done a little reading, we’re usually curled up in our den, and we’ll watch a show together. Or we’ll talk and catch up. It’s nothing major, but that’s what marriage is about. Not the big, splashy stuff. It’s just the little day-to-day sharing and routines and rituals that we still have.”
