The official Biden-Harris inauguration playlist was released over the weekend and, let's just say, the event is set to be a bop.
Keep scrolling for the full details...
Now, Biden's inauguration has been highly anticipated since his election victory back in November.
It's been a rollercoaster few months in the world of U.S politics, to say the least.
Biden's win on November 7th was a historic one.
Not only because Biden broke Barack Obama's record for the most votes cast for a presidential candidate, but also because vice president-elect, Kamala Harris, will be the first-ever woman of color to be elected in office. Simply amazing.
Of course, President Donald Trump didn't take to this news well, at all...won't be attending Biden's inauguration - something that didn't come as a surprise to many.
Biden, on the other hand, accepted his win graciously...
And the president-elect, along with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, has been celebrating along with the rest of the country.
And last week, Biden officially announced his inauguration theme.
The theme of @JoeBiden's inauguration (Jan. 20) will be #AmericaUnited 🇺🇸— Joel Franco (@OfficialJoelF) January 11, 2021
"At a time of unprecedented crisis & deep divisions, America United reflects the start of a new journey to restore the soul of America..." - @BidenInaugural pic.twitter.com/E0UorX6ZKn
"At a time of unprecedented crisis and deep divisions, America United reflects the beginning of a new national journey that restores the soul of America, brings the country together, and creates a path to a brighter future," a statement from the transition team read.
In addition to the theme, 2 Inauguration Day events were also announced...

He will be joined by first lady Jill Biden, Kamala Harris, and her husband, Doug Emhoff...
As well as former POTUS's, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton.
Former first ladies, Michelle Obama and Laura Bush...
As well as Hillary Clinton, will also participate.
The inaugural committee also plans to install an art display on the National Mall.
The "Field of Flags" will include 191,500 American flags, representing the Americans who couldn't be at the celebration.
There's even an option to become a "symbolic sponsor" of the flag display.
Proud to be chosen as a Partner in Service for Biden's inauguration! A portion of donations for the "field of flags" display will come to EBB to support Black birthing people in the Triangle and improve maternal health.— Equity Before Birth (@EquityB4Birth) January 13, 2021
With all proceeds going to a group of nonprofit organizations decided by the committee.
"This inauguration marks a new chapter for the American people — one of healing, of unifying, of coming together, of an America united. It is time to turn the page on this era of division."
Can’t wait to proudly display our flag again beginning on Inauguration Day.— Linda Robinson (@LindaRo82242152) December 5, 2020
"The inaugural activities will reflect our shared values and serve as a reminder that we are stronger together than we are apart, just as our motto 'e pluribus unum' reminds us — out of many, one," Biden inauguration CEO Tony Allen said.
The ceremony will be scaled-down at the US Capitol...
The bravest thing @JoeBiden, @KamalaHarris and @SpeakerPelosi can do is stay safe for democracy. The only inaugural "norm" that counts is ensuring the transfer of power to the Biden Admin and protecting a pro-democracy line of succession. The terrorists win if the coup succeeds.— Jon Cooper 🇺🇸 (@joncoopertweets) January 12, 2021
Because of not only the continuing coronavirus pandemic, but because of the horrifying riots that took place at Capitol Hill on January 6th.
It was then revealed that there will be another inaguration event titled, Celebrating America, hosted by the one and only Tom Hanks.
The ninety-minute event is going to be hosted by the A-Lister and will feature a whole array of celebrities including Justin Timberlake, Jon Bon Jovi, and Demi Lovato.
It will be available to watch across major television networks, including ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN.
It's also expected to stream on various online outlets and the Presidential Inaugural Committee's social media feeds.
Tony Allen, Presidential Inaugural Committee said this:
"This inauguration presents a unique opportunity to spotlight the resilience and spirit of an America United. We have witnessed countless heroes this past year step up to the frontlines and serve their fellow Americans, so we are telling their stories, spreading their collective light, and celebrating the best of our country and its people with this primetime program."
And then came another announcement...
The Biden-Harris inaugural committee confirmed to Variety that Lady Gaga, a loyal Biden supporter, will perform "The Star-Spangled Banner" for Biden's swearing-in ceremony.
This typically begins around 11:30 a.m. ET on the West front of the U.S. Capitol...
According to Variety, also in line to take to the stage for the ceremony: Jennifer Lopez will perform; Andrea Hall, a career firefighter, will lead in the Pledge of Allegiance; Amanda Gorman, the first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate will recite a poem; an invocation will be delivered by Father Leo O'Donovan, and a benediction by Reverend Dr. Silvester Beaman, both longtime friends of the Biden family.
Gaga has since confirmed the news on her Instagram.
And, following this news...
The official Biden-Harris inauguration playlist has been released to the public.
The playlist has been specially curated by Biden and Harris themselves...
All with the aim to bring the festivities of the special day to all Americans in their homes, Billboard reports.
The playlist, put together by D-Nice and The Raedio, features forty-six tracks from a whole variety of artists...
