It's that time of year again: DJ Obama just dropped the summer's hottest new playlist. Straight out of his summer crib on Martha's Vineyard, POTUS created his most eclectic warm-weather mix yet.

"Been waiting to drop this: summer playlist, the encore. What's everybody listening to?" he wrote on Twitter, alongside photos of two new compilations, one for day and another for night. Each are eclectic mixes, featuring everything from rap to reggae, pop and soul.

The first, his songs for the daytime, is an upbeat and jazzy mix, with hits by everyone from Jay Z and Pharrell to Damian Marley, Nina Simone, and even Aretha Franklin. From Jidenna's "Classic Man" to "Good Vibrations" by the Beach Boys, it's sure to put a spring in your step.

The next, a collection of songs for nighttime, is decidedly more sultry. With vintage hits like Billie Holiday's "Lover Man" and Denise LaSalle's "Trapped by a Thing Called Love," the President exhibits his love for jazz, while Chance the Rapper's "Acid Rain" and Janet Jackson's "I Get Lonely" add some spice into the mix.

This isn't POTUS's first summer playlist, of course: Last August, he curated his first Spotify playlist, handpicking favorites from Bob Dylan, Justin Timberlake, and Joni Mitchell.
