The First Lady of the United States is known for taking on campaigns, such as to get people moving to help combat obesity.

Now, Michelle Obama she is tackling education - by encouraging people to go on to college.

In a video with Jay Pharoah of 'Saturday Night Live', Mrs Obama tells her audience: "We had to do overnight every night to make it tomorrow, and everyone could really make their dream true - hey, kid listening in Michigan that could be you!".

The campaign is using the hashtag #BetterMakeRoom on social media.

The song has already made a splash, reaching number one on the real-time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart.

Billboard says this earns Mrs Obama "bragging rights" at the White House.

Her husband, President Barack Obama, reached number two on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 in November, thanks to a featured turn on JX Cannon's 'Pop Off'.

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 presidential address.

Move over Barack...
