Neighbor and musician Erykah Badu attended the 60th birthday party of former President Barack Obama. And a video she posted might have contributed to some attention circulating the event.

In the video, which has now been deleted, the Obama is seen dancing, maskless, on a dance floor at his Martha’s Vineyard property.

Originally, 475 people were invited to the party. But Obama family spokesperson Hannah Hankins said the guest list had been scaled down to include only family and close friends due to recent upticks in COVID-19 cases.

All party guests followed CDC guidelines and were tested for COVID-19.
