Michelle Obama is launching a hip-hop album aimed at improving America's health, featuring Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and hip-hop pioneer D.M.C.
The First Lady won't sing on the tracks, but she will appear in the videos. The album will be distributed in schools across America.
The song titles include "U R What You Eat", "Veggie Luv", and "Get Up Sit Up".
D.M.C., of Run-D.M.C. fame, will perform on the rather less catchily-named "Hip-Hop FEET (Finding Exercise Energy Thresholds)". Other well-known stars on the album include singer Jordin Sparks, Matisyahu and Ashanti.
