So sayeth Usher in video he posted over the weekend of President Barack Obama dancing to “Hotline Bling” alongside Kansas City, Kan., native Janelle Monáe.

Entertainment Weekly said Usher performed at BET’s “Love and Happiness: A Musical Experience” on Friday at the White House. Also in attendance were Jill Scott, Common and the Roots. The president hit the dance floor afterward, and Usher captured the images of Obama dancing to Drake’s song with Monáe nearby.

People magazine reported that musician James Poyser tweeted that the president didn’t stop there.

“When the POTUS is dabbing with @Usher in the middle of the dance floor at the White House, you KNOW you’re at the most epic party ever!!” Poyser wrote.

Dasha Fayvinova of Yahoo! Style gushed, “There are a few undisputed truths in the world — no one looks good in a fanny pack, cold pizza tastes just as good in the morning, and President Barak (sic) Obama is the coolest president to ever be in office during America’s 240 years. Seriously, the man just oozes coolness.”
