Michelle Obama is sharing the music that makes her want to get up and vote, posting a hip-hop playlist for Election Day.

The former first lady released her so-called “voting soundtrack” through rapper LL Cool J’s content and commerce site, Rock the Bells, on Friday.

The tracks included on Obama’s playlist, the site said, are ones that she “believes best embodies the importance of voting.”

Among the songs featured: Queen Latifah’s “U.N.I.T.Y.,” “Hard Times” by Kurtis Blow and Run DMC, Public Enemy’s “Rebel Without a Pause,” “The Show” by Doug E Fresh and Slick Rick and “Lean on Me” by Big Daddy Kane.

Obama, 56, launched her voting participation organization, When We All Vote, in 2018.
