Michelle Obama is the gift that keeps on giving.

The former first lady shared her 2020 workout playlist (and maybe the secret behind her renowned arms?) on social media Sunday and gave those looking to keep their New Year’s fitness resolution a boost of motivation.

“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 captioned her post along with her list of songs. “These songs always seem to give me that extra boost to get through my toughest workouts. What’s on your playlist?”

It looks like former President Barack Obama and his wife have the same taste in music as they both have Lizzo, Childish Gambino, Burna Boy and Alicia Keys, among many others, on their playlists.

Michelle’s playlist includes upbeat bops to power through your workout, from classics like “Lose My Breath” from Destiny’s Child and “Feels Good” by Tony! Toni! Toné!, to newer hits like “Cross Me” by Ed Sheeran, “Hussle and Motivate” by Nipsey Hussle and “APES**T” by the Carters (the clean version, of course).

The “Becoming” author also had a section of songs for the cool-down portion of a workout, which listed mellower hits like Snoh Aalegra’s “I Want You Around” and “Honesty” by Pink Sweat$.

Ariana Grande also made it on to Obama’s workout playlist with her feature on 2 Chainz’s song “Rule the World.” The “7 Rings” artist took notice and shared the former first lady’s tweet adding three emojis: a cloud, gray heart and crossbow. 

Spotify wasted no time in compiling Obama’s playlist on their platform. Listeners can stream all the songs here. 

Sharing playlists is a common practice in the Obama household. In December, former President Obama reflected on the year and released a list of his favorite songs from 2019.

“From hip-hop to country to The Boss, here are my songs of the year,” Obama wrote to Twitter. “If you’re looking for something to keep you company on a long drive or help you turn up a workout, I hope there’s a track or two in here that does the trick.”

His list included musical favorites spanning from Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen to newcomers Lizzo, Lil Nas X and DaBaby.
