“Excited to share with you a new @Spotify playlist inspired by the first season of my new podcast. It’s filled with incredible new artists and a whole lot of #BlackGirlMagic,” she said in a press statement. “I hope you’ll give it a listen and follow some of these terrific musicians.”
Obama launched the podcast, in partnership with Spotify’s exclusive Higher Ground hub, last Wednesday, July 29. She brought out none other than her husband and former President Barack Obama as the guest for her debut episode, where the couple discussed their relationship and civil service.
