Michelle Obama makes a rap video: “You Should Go To College”

First Lady Michelle Obama teamed up with Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharoah and released a rap video espousing the values of a college degree. We’re particularly impressed with FLOTUS’ rhymes right before the 1:00 mark:

South Side Chicago,
we all know,
we had to do overtime,
every night,
to make it to tomorrow

And everyone could really make their dream come true,
Hey, kid listening in Michigan, that could be you

The video already has 1.3 million views and is currently the No. 1 song on Twitter, according to Billboard. Enjoy the Friday video and have a good weekend!
