Sasha & Malia Obama's Schoolmates Twenty20 Release Rock Single & Video: Watch 'Heart Thief"

It’s funny: even if their households are led by parents who are reporting on, molding and emboldening our nation, kids' worries are still simple and the same. Such is the case with tween foursome Twenty20, a boyband made up from sons of some of Washington D.C.’s biggest political figures.

They go to Sidwell Friends, a K-12 private school, which they’re probably super popular at (next to President Barack Obama’s daughters Sasha and Malia, of course).  And they’ve recently released the lead single to their forthcoming as-yet-titled EP. The rock cut is called “Heart Thief” and it’s about—you guessed it!—a girl.

Singer Hugo Carney (White House Press Sec. Jay Carney and “ABC News” and “Good Morning America” correspondent Claire Shipman’s son) sings that he’s “spent lonely nights all alone” thinking about some cold-hearted gal.  Poor kid.

The rest of the 12-year-old crew is rounded out by Ben Froman (US Trade Rep. Mike Froman's son) on guitar, Lucas Donovan (Housing and Urban Development Sec. Shaun Donvan's son) on bass and Joey Doyle (former Hillary Clinton presidential campaign manager Patti Soils Doyle's boy) on drums.
