The moment was caught on camera
President Obama was filmed dancing to Drake‘s ‘Hotline Bling’ at the White House on Friday night (October 21).
The US President hosted his final ever musical event at the White House, BET’s Love and Happiness event. Guests at the event included Usher, Janelle Monae, The Roots, Dave Chappelle and more.
Footage has emerged of Obama dancing to Drake’s massive 2015 hit, along with Usher, Monae and fellow guests. Watch below.
Earlier this week, Frank Ocean and Chance The Rapper were among the attendees for the White House State Dinner. The annual invite-only black tie event was the last hosted by President Obama. Frank and Chance were also joined by a host of other famous guests, including Jerry Seinfeld and Gwen Stefani.
Ocean (who wore black and white checkered Vans) arrived at the White House with his mother, Katonya Breaux, while Chance The Rapper also brought along a parent, his father Ken Bennett. Chance’s dad previously served as an aide to former Chicago mayor Harold Washington, where he worked with then-Senator Obama.
President Obama recently revealed that he works out to Beyoncé and Black Eyed Peas, sharing the soundtrack to his presidential workouts. The 10-song playlist includes classic songs by Bob Marley, Nina Simone and Sting. More recent hits by Jay Z and Drake feature too. Perhaps most surprisingly, the outgoing president is partial to ‘Emergency’, a little-known 2015 single by Swedish electro duo Icona Pop.
