Kanye West, Coldplay, Tupac on Rubio's Spotify list

Some of the 16 tracks include “Clique” by Kanye West, Jay-Z and Big Sean, U2’s “Where the Streets Have No Name,” "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay, and “Feel So Close” by Calvin Harris.

Rubio also lists “Bon, Bon” by Florida-born rapper Pitbull — an entertainer the senator had been critical of in the past. In an interview with GQ last year Rubio said of Pitbull, “There's always been a party person, but he's a young guy. You know, maybe as he gets older, he'll reflect in his music more as time goes on. I mean, he's not Tupac. He's not gonna be writing poetry.”

Last week, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) expressed disappointment that Spotify was banned in the House. The measure was reportedly an effort to protect House data.

"House blocked Spotify? This is 2013. It is a legal service that should be allowed. Pandora, YouTube, iTunes, Spotify… Let the music flow!" Cantor wrote on Twitter
