Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ team have released a 46-song playlist to celebrate the inauguration of the 46th president - see what they did there? After weeks of political unrest and the shock of the Capitol riots (opens in new tab), we finally have some lighthearted news.
The playlist features a wide range of genres covering modern hits to the classic, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The playlist was curated The Raedio and D-Nice, and it's aptly named the ‘Official playlist for the inauguration of the 46th President and Vice President of the United States”. It features songs from Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, and many more.
As most people will not be able to celebrate the inauguration as we would have wanted, a playlist is just the thing we need to celebrate at home - as well as our Kamala Harris pearls (opens in new tab).

In a statement from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris' team, the playlist is described as “representing the diversity of our nation, and our strength and resilience as we look forward to new leadership and a new era in America”.
Supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on the song choices, and even SZA has expressed her joy at being featured. She said: “JUST FOUND OUT WE MADE IT TO THE INAUGURATION PLAYLIST WE DID IT JOE Thank you for this honor.” A call back to the now iconic phone call between Harris and Biden that swiftly became a meme.
