BARACK Obama has revealed what songs he’s listening to this summer…and one of Hove’s is one of them.
And this year, Hove DJ Fatboy Slim’s Praise You joins other big names.
Obama, 60, tweeted: “Every year I look forward to sharing my summer playlist because I get to know so many new artists through your replies – it’s an example of how music can truly bring us all together.
“Here’s what I heard this summer. What songs would you add?”

Praise You is Fatboy’s 1999 hit and features a prominent vocal sample from the opening of Camille Yarbrough’s Take Yo’ Praise.
It peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart and in Iceland, number four in Canada, number six in Ireland and number 36 in the United States.
Topping the former president’s list of summer picks was Beyonce’s newly released track “Break My Soul.”
The song is set to appear on their seventh studio album, Renaissance, which is due out on Friday.
Music for a Sushi Restaurant from Harry Styles’ third solo album Harry’s House was just below on the list. It has just been nominated for this year’s Mercury Prize.
Mercury Award nominees Wet Leg also made the list with their track Angelica.
The duo had a hit streak after being included on the BBC’s Sound of 2022 list.
Obama also chose modern tracks like Tems’ Vibe Out, Burna Boy’s Last Last and Bad Bunny and Bomba Estereo’s Ojitos Lindos.
The former president also mixed in classic songs from artists who have died and great, including Miles Davis’ Blue In Green, Aretha Franklin’s Save Me and Prince’s Let’s Go Crazy.
