Michelle Obama is not only a well-accomplished First Lady but she’s possibly the coolest as well since she shared her tunes dedicated to girl power for “The First Lady’s Day of the Girl Playlist.”

In celebration for the International Day of the Girl, the playlist debuted on Spotify and features 20 songs from women that make fans dance, think and feel like they’re on top of the world.

The curated playlist included TLC‘s “No Scrubs,” Beyonce‘s “Run the World,” Lauryn Hill‘s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” and Aretha Franklin’s “Respect.” Janelle Monae‘s “Give Em What They Love” featuring Prince is also on the list.

Along with the musical journey shared by FLOTUS comes a message that Mrs. Obama has been consistently making during her last year in the White House: #62MillionGirls.

The FLOTUS has been bringing awareness to gender inequality and the lack of opportunity in girls’ education across the globe. According to the White House, 62 million girls are not receiving the proper education they should by not being able to attend school.

Notable celebrities have joined the First Lady by sharing the experience they got in school — that the 62 million girls are not getting.

“In school I learned how to be myself and how to be a leader. 62 million girls don’t have that chance,” wrote Beyonce in an Instagram post.

Janelle Monae also wrote something in support of the movement. “In school I learned to think for myself, read, write short stories, be more creative, communicate more effectively, cultivate my ideas, tap into my imagination, and embrace the things that make me unique even if it makes others uncomfortable. #62MillionGirls don’t have that chance,” she wrote.
