Michelle Obama, College, Jay Pharaoh


FLOTUS on the beat, ya'll!

Yes, you heard that right! Michelle Obama is dropping some serious lines in a new rap music video, throwing down a track about a very important cause to her heart: college!

As a part of the Obama administration's "Better Make Room" initiative to encourage kids to seek a higher education beyond high school, the First Lady joins Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharaoh in a funny hip-hop video featured on the website College Humor. Though fairly comical, the two deliver the important message of aiming high and going to college to land the dream job you want.

"South Side Chicago, we all know / We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow," Michelle raps. "And everyone could really make their dream come true / Hey kid, listenin' in Michigan that could be you."

But it's not only lyrics she drops! FLOTUS also shows off some slick moves, dancing alongside Pharaoh throughout a majority of the video, wearing oversized sunglasses, making it rain with dolla-dolla bills and strutting her stuff on the White House lawn.

And speaking of music, Michelle recently revealed her go-to girl-power jams in a playlist on Spotify as a means of spreading women empowerment. The list included (but was not limited to) hit tracks by Beyoncé, Diana Ross, Alicia Keys, TLC and Demi Lovato, who was beyond stoked to be featured.

"@FLOTUS thank you so much for choosing #confident to be on your girl-empowering playlist!!!!" she wrote on Twitter.
