Michelle Obama, the first lady of the United States and an advocate for a number of great causes, has been using her position to support women’s rights, arts education, organic movement, and childhood obesity among other things.

Her latest campaign, which she’s seen promoting in a music video, “Better Make Room” aims to “inspire every student in America to take charge of their future by completing their education past high school, whether at a training program, community college, or a four-year college or university.”

In an original College Humor video she teamed up with FLOTUS and Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharoah to rap about the importance of college-readiness programs and completion goals for teenagers in a song titled “Go to College.”

The short 2 minute track inspires teenagers with shout outs to Einstein, astronauts, engineers and a whole different set of aspirations you could achieve “if you go to college.”

The first lady managed to rise to No.1 on the real-time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart surpassing her husband’s No. 2 track JX Cannon’s “Pop Off” on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 on Nov. 17. Cannon released his Soundcloud-only cut, which is based on a the line, “If folks want to pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, present a specific plan” from a Nov. 17 presidential address.
