We continue our long goodbye to the Obamas with the greatest video yet to surface from Friday’s final White House music event: President Barack Obama dancing to Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”

The clip, shared on a Drake fan account, shows Obama totally at home in a crowd of celebrities:

Radio personality Angie Martinez was in attenance, and wrote about dancing with the president in a post to Instagram:

The White House hosted BET’s Love and Happiness: A Musical Experience on Friday night and featured performances from Usher, Janelle Mone, The Roots, De La Soul and more, reports the Associated Press.

Over the last eight years, the Obamas have made it a tradition to host events celebrating music. In years past, performers included Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger, to name a few.
