Barack Obama is releasing his stop of calendar year lists, and his favourite tunes of 2019 are all complete bangers. 

His round up consists of viral music like the remixed edition of Lil Nas X’s “Old City Highway,” which includes Billy Ray Cyrus’ legendary twang in the line “spent a good deal of revenue on my brand name newguitar.” The former president also provided “Burning” by Maggie Rogers, “Not” by Big Thief,” and “Seventeen” by Sharon Von Etten, confirming that Obama is in reality a sad indie kid at coronary heart. He nodded to hip hop’s catchiest bops of this yr, like “Suge” by DaBaby and Young Thug’s “The London,” which featured J. Cole and Travis Scott.

Others mentioned that the previous president’s playlists had been suspiciously culturally appropriate — as style-encompassing as they are, Obama could have gained some help with curating them. Good flavor in new music, immediately after all, can garner some favourable publicity.

I doubt Obama listens to any of these music. They are just what the little ones are listening to and what much better way is there to be hip with the group than by boasting you share their musical tastes? https://t.co/KFPjJMYeMN
