With President Barack Obama’s eight-year term coming to an end and his presidential handover coming up next week, it’s only natural that people are curious as to what the future holds for the president after he leaves the White House.
But as it is, it looks like the first black president of the U.S. may end up as an employee of Spotify.
According to podcast host and writer Natalia Brzezinski, Obama is waiting for a call from Spotify and Spotify CEO is very much excited about the prospect.
More telling indications emerged about Spotify being Obama’s next job earlier this week when Brzezinski and her husband, former Swedish ambassador Mark Brzezinski held a chat with the outgoing POTUS.
During the chat, Obama quipped ‘I’m still waiting for my job at Spotify…’cause I know y’all loved my playlist.’
Obama has created multiple Spotify playlists over the years, and they’re all so good. His workout playlist, released last October, featured everyone from Icona Pop to Beyoncé, while also throwing it back with some Sting.
His summer 2016 playlist was so bangin’ it gave one list for daytime and one for nighttime, featuring everyone from the Beach Boys to Billie Holiday to Sara Bareilles.
Spotify CEO, Daniel Ek already offered Obama a role at the company in a tweet.
