This Christmas, the Obamas are bumping Brian McKnight, Mariah Carey, Jackson 5, and more.
The Obamas have shared several playlists “due to popular demand” since Barack assumed the presidency. Just in time for Christmas, they share their lated curatorial masterpiece “Holidays with the Obamas.”
Though the 14-track playlist is devoid of any hip hop (despite the family’s hip hop leanings), it does include plenty of choice R&B Christmas cuts, including Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” Jackson 5’s “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” Boyz II Men’s “Let It Snow,” and Stevie Wonder’s “Someday At Christmas,” and more. Glaring omissions include “This Christmas” and “Santa Claus Goes Straight to the Ghetto.”
How would you rate this playlist?
