This is not a joke. First Lady Michelle Obama is releasing a rap album — but she doesn’t sing in it. The album, called “Songs for a Healthier America”, is the latest initiative for her Let’s Move! campaign to fight childhood obesity. It will feature songs from rap/hip-hop artists, including Jordin Sparks, Ashanti, Run DMC, Doug E. Fresh and Monifah (Am I supposed to know who this is?). Mrs. Obama will have cameos in the music videos of several of the songs.
Not that I’m surprised, but news of the album is getting mixed reviews. The Daily Beast called the lineup of artists “kind of embarrassing”, and others have scoffed at the playlist, which features songs like “Veggie Luv” and “Hip Hop LEAN”. link
