Joe Biden and Kamala Harris‘ Presidential Inaugural Committee has released a star-studded 46-song playlist that will mark the inauguration of 46th president on January 20th.
DJ D-Nice and Raedio, the audio everywhere label founded by Issa Rae and Benoni Tagoe, curated the list, which fits the Biden/Harris team’s theme, “America United,” and crafted it in partnership with the PIC.
The tracklist features new and old music from across various genres. The list includes Kendrick Lamar‘s “Now Or Never,” Average White Band‘s “Pick Up the Pieces,” Sault‘s “Free,” MF Doom‘s “Coffin Nails,” Salt-N-Pepa and En Vogue‘s “Whatta Man,” Bill Withers‘ “Lovely Day,” the Staple Singers‘ “We the People,” Vampire Weekend‘s “Unbelievers,” Marvin Gaye‘s “Got to Give It Up – Pt. 1,” and SZA‘s “Good Days.”
The playlist also features Bruce Springsteen‘s “We Take Care of Our Own” for Biden, and Mary J. Blige‘s “Work That” for the Vice President-elect Harris. There are walk-on songs for First Lady Dr. Jill Biden and Second Gentleman Dough Emhoff as well.
According to a statement from the Biden/Harris team, the playlist “represents the diversity of our nation, and our strength and resilience as we look forward to new leadership and a new era in America.”
“We are honored to create the official playlist for the historic inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris,” Raedio’s co-founder, Benoni Tagoe, said in a statement.
