Drake's "Too Good" featuring Rihanna tops the playlist.

"Best Part" by Toronto's Daniel Caesar — featuring American H.E.R. — also got a spot on the list.

Popstar Shawn Mendes made it onto the list with Cuban-American songstress Camila Cabello for their collaboration "Senorita."

Robin Thicke — the American son of Canadian actor Alan Thicke — was also named for "Can U Believe."

Obama's lists of cultural recommendations have become something of a tradition.

Last week, he shared his summer reading list, which included a recommendation for the collected works of American Nobel laureate Toni Morrison.
