Former United States President, Barack Obama, on Saturday, shared a list of his favourite music of 2020.
The list, which was shared on Twitter, according to Mr Obama, was compiled with “valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha” who seems to have a considerable influence on her famous father’s music choices.
The former Commander-in-Chief’s Nigerian pick, Essence, is a single from Wizkid’s ‘Made in Lagos’ album in which he featured Tems.
Mr Obama’s musical taste touches many genres, from rock (Bruce Springsteen’s Ghosts, Bob Dylan’s Goodbye Jimmy Reed, Jeff Tweedy’s Love Is the King) to pop (Dua Lipa’s Levitating, Jessie Ware’s Remember Where You Are) to rap (J. Cole’s The Climb Back, Travis Scott’s Franchise, Lil Baby’s The Bigger Picture) to country (Chris Stapleton’s Starting Over, Ruston Kelly’s Brave).
This comes as a part of Mr Obama’s annual tradition of sharing his favourite entertainment programmes, books, and music from the particular year. Some of the movies from Mr Obama’s movie and TV favourites are Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Pixar’s animated movie, Soul, David Fincher’s Mank, the documentary Time, and Higher Ground Productions, Crimp Cramp.
