It’s no secret that former FLOTUS Michelle Obama puts in some serious time at the gym. But if you’re wondering what jams help the bestselling author break a sweat, you’re in luck. Obama, who celebrated her 56th birthday earlier this week, just released her 2020 workout playlist, and the list features everyone from Lizzo and Cardi B to Ed Sheeran and Ariana Grande.
“It's about that time when New Year's resolutions get a bit harder to stick to. To offer a little inspiration, I want to share my go-to #WorkoutPlaylist with you,” Obama tweeted, sharing a two-part playlist featuring an upbeat section filled with hip-hop and R&B, followed by a cool-down section.

Scoring a spot on Obama’s list of favorites is a highly coveted position for any artist. Lizzo posted a screenshot of Obama’s playlist on her Instagram Stories.
“STREAM ‘SOULMATE’ BY LIZZO CUS Michelle Obama says so!” the musician wrote, sharing a couple of photos of her own workout.
Ariana Grande, who appears on the 2 Chainz track “Rule the World,” was also clearly thrilled with the inclusion.
Obama, whose biceps are a particular favorite of the internet, is famed for going hard at the gym. Back in October, she posted a photo on her Instagram page which showed her baring her abs for the internet. Dressed in black leggings, a sports bra and a black hat, Obama was pictured lunging forward while hoisting a weighted ball above her head.
“It doesn’t always feel good in the moment. But after the fact, I’m always glad I hit the gym,” she wrote.
