— -- Still in the early stretch of his 16-day vacation in Martha's Vineyard, President Obama released today his 2016 summer playlist, and one artist is notably missing.

This is the second time Obama has released his favorite songs on Spotify. He released a similar list last summer when the White House officially joined the music streaming app.

That playlist included an eclectic mix of artists like The Temptations, Coldplay, Nappy Roots and Beyonce.

This time around, despite Beyonce's appearance at Obama's 55th birthday bash last Friday, the "Lemonade" star didn't quite make the cut.

Instead, Obama included hits such as "So Ambitious" by Beyonce's hubby Jay-Z and Pharrell Williams, "Good Vibrations" by The Beach Boys, "LoveHate Thing" by Wale and "Forever Begins" by Common, a repeat guest at the White House.

Check out the full daytime playlist here and the nighttime playlist here.
