Spotify has made it easier than ever for users to compile and share playlists of their favorite songs. What's more, music fans aren't the only ones who have taken part in the trend.

In recent years, Spotify has finally begun to answer the age-old question of "what do your favorite famous people listen to?" Now, everyone from popular musicians to powerful politicians are creating their own public Spotify playlists. 

Sometimes celebrity Spotify playlists are created in anticipation of an artist's upcoming album release. Other times, it's just a fun, unique avenue for a celebrity to connect with their fans. Either way, there's an inherent joy in finding out what celebrities listen to on Spotify, especially when people learn that they appreciate the same music as their idols.

Without further ado, here are 12 of the most notable Spotify playlists of the rich and famous!

For everyone out there missing the days when Obama was still in office, this Spotify playlist is just what the doctor ordered. Created by the former President himself, the playlist features some of Obama's favorite nighttime summer songs. Oddly enough, the playlist feels like a good companion to Obama's term in office.
