Presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala HarrisKamala HarrisHispanics sour on Biden and Democrats' agenda as midterms loom Officer who directed rioters away from senators says Jan. 6 could have been a 'bloodbath' Trump and Biden should stop denigrating US elections MORE (D-Calif.) released her summer playlist Friday of the “songs she’s listening to while traveling around country,” according to a campaign email.

“I’m a firm believer that we all need to find the time to dance, to sing and to bop our heads a little, so I’m sharing the songs I’m listening to in the car out on the campaign trail this summer," Harris told Bustle. “Whether we’re driving from Sacramento to Reno or Dubuque to Chicago, this playlist always lifts me up.”

The 46-song list, which can be streamed on Spotify, is a combination of hip-hop, pop and rock records. Harris’s picks range from classics, like “Sun is Shining” by Bob Marley and the Wailers and “Cold Sweat” by James Brown, to new hits, like “Booed Up” by Ella Mai and “Like a Girl” by Lizzo.


The list also includes artists like Mary J. Blige, Beyoncé, Aretha Franklin, A Tribe Called Quest, Ariana Grande, Stevie Wonder, Phil Collins and others. 

Harris chose Blige’s “Work That” as her walkout song at an Iowa Democratic Party celebration earlier this month. 

President Obama first curated a summer playlist on Spotify during the summer of 2015, with picks like Bob Dylan, the Temptations, Mos Def and others.
