The 55-year-old commander-in-chief was caught on camera hitting the dance floor and busting some hilarious moves to the song during a special concert in the White House.
Here's another reason to adore President Barack Obama. Over the weekend, the commander-in-chief invited several musicians to the White House for "BET's Love and Happiness: A Musical Experience" event. He clearly had a lot of fun that night as he joined his famous guests on the dance floor and busted some moves to Drake's "Hotline Bling".

The special concert featured performances from the likes of Usher, Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, Common and The Roots. Later that night, they threw a dance party during which Usher managed to film Obama grooving with Monae who also led the crowd for a massive sing-along to Drizzy's hit song.

That was the last time Obama could enjoy a concert in the White House as a president. Before kicking off the event, he reflected on some performers whom he had invited there. "We've had Bob Dylan and we've had Jennifer Hudson. Gloria Estefan and Los Lobos. Aretha, Patti, Smokey...," Obama said.

"I've had Paul McCartney singing 'Michelle' to Michelle and Stevie singing 'Happy Birthday'. We've had Buddy Guy and Mick Jagger getting me to sing 'Sweet Home Chicago'," he continued. "So this has been one of our favorite traditions, and it's with a little bit of bittersweetness that this is our final musical evening as president and first lady."

"This is the People's House and it ought to reflect the amazing diversity, and the imagination, and the incredible ingenuity that defines the American people. And while much of the music that you will hear this evening - gospel, R&B, rap - is rooted in the African-American experience. It's not just black music. This is an essential part of the American experience, it's a mirror to who we are, and a reminder of who we can be," he added.
