Michelle Obama’s Favorite ‘Lemonade’ Song Shows She’s As Big A Beyonce Fan As You
Plenty of people can attest that FLOTUS 44 was the trendiest First Lady to ever step foot in the White House, and she continues to live up to that title. As a longtime enthusiast of pop culture, Michelle Obama revealed her favorite song from Beyoncé's Lemonade album recently, earning herself some extra cool points. Her response would ultimately prove that Obama is just as big of a Beyoncé fan as the rest of us — if not, even bigger.
At Wednesday's Inbound marketing conference, Obama took a moment to discuss, amongst many other important topics, her favorite tune from Beyoncé's Grammy Award-winning album. As a closing question to wrap up the sit down, Obama was asked to share her preferred track from the legendary body of work, according to Mashable. After initially responding that "all of them" have become personal favorites, the former First Lady went on to reveal that "Love Drought" is the song that remains near and dear to her heart, often keeping it on repeat.
It goes without saying that Obama reigns supreme as one of the most down to earth, classy, and relatable women of our modern time. So it really doesn't get much better than knowing that she shares a close personal relationship with the beloved 36-year-old singer and listens to her music on a regular basis. Obama recently paid homage to the multi-hyphenate entertainer by dressing up in her iconic "Formation" garb for a birthday tribute earlier this month.
The former FLOTUS has often shared her love for Beyoncé's artistry, often dancing publicly to her music. The first time was notably during the 2009 inauguration as the songstress serenaded the Obamas with her rendition of the Etta James classic, "At Last." More recently Obama rocked out to "Single Ladies" while in the passenger seat of James Corden's car during an episode of Carpool Karaoke. But it seems that up until this recent reveal, she had never actually called out a favorite song by name.
The Beyhive literally went wild after learning that Obama shared their love for the talented superstar and her "Love Drought" tune. Some of these fan reactions are simply priceless, just take a look.
