Michelle Obama Has A New Favorite Girl Group

Move over Beyoncé. Michelle Obama has a new favorite tune. A group of young, female students who produced and starred in a music video in which they rap about higher education and their own bright futures has captured the attention of FLOTUS44. She commented on the video, which was posted on the Instagram account of BlackGirlsRock, a nonprofit mentoring organization. “Young Queens – Stay focused. Stay motivated. Never quit. I’m with you, and couldn’t be prouder,” Obama wrote, signing off as “Mo” and adding a high five emoji. And you guys -- the song is lit. Here are a few bars: “I’m talking MBA then PhD/PharmD OB and of course Ed D/I gotta appetite for education/So I’m going to feed it/ And think I’ll start my dissertation because I’ll need it.” The former first lady is not the only one who took notice. Everyone, from P. Diddy to Jada Pinkett Smith, has shared the song on social media. Check out the video here.
