Michelle Obama creates Valentine's Day playlist for Barack Obama

Barack Obama's love-pouring for his wife has never reduced one bit right from the time he took oath of office as the President.

Wiley, a Yale University-trained artist, is the first African-American artist to have his work featured in the National Portrait Gallery.

Valentine's Day saw two completely differenct reactions from USA's two most popular and powerful couple. She photographs them and paints them against brightly colored or patterned backgrounds, accentuating the monochromatic central figure.

Wiley, who was exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery in a 2008 show, places black men and women into heroic, often larger-than-life contexts. Sherald is another African-American artist known for her unique style, and her portraits also tend to underscore themes of social justice. The chair, not grounded, floats against an ornate, floral backdrop, yet the president's body language suggests his presidency was anything but relaxing frolic in the garden. As with much commentary from the Obama era, the discussion was rife with absurd and extreme reactions. The list contains 44 tunes to celebrate him being the United States' 44th president. Barack shared a picture of himself with the former first lady on Twitter.

"To celebrate the occasion, I'm dedicating a little Valentine's Day playlist to you!" she added.

South Korea to pay $2.6 million for North's Olympic presence
Meanwhile, a North Korean cheering squad, Taekwondo demonstrators, and reporters are staying at the Inje Speedium in Gangwon. You could nearly feel the ripple of excitement as Kim Yo-jong walked into the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games.

Michelle chose perhaps the most thoughtful and spot-on gift for her partner. The gown in itself is a contradiction and suggestion of race relations, featuring the work of white fashion designer, Michelle Smith. But in the aftermath of a presidency rife with baseless conspiracies propagated about the president's identity - dealing with everything from his birthplace to his religion - it seems apt for Obama's official presidential portrait to dispense with the useless pretense of objectivity.

Not to be outdone, someone has also made an unofficial Valentine's playlist for current first lady Melania Trump.

With a light-blue backdrop, Mrs. Obama's strong skin stands out, yet her face itself nearly fades into the portrait.

In her remarks, Mrs. Obama expressed gratitude to those who came before her in her journey. "#HappyValentinesDay", it was noticeable that she had no words of affection for her husband, the President.

When Barack's was first uncovered, he simply said "Look at that".
