Former U.S President Barack Obama has released his 2019 summer playlist and Nigerian singer, Rema, earned a spot.
Obama shared the list of 44 songs that he and his wife, Michelle, have been listening to and which make their latest annual summer playlist.
Rema, who is signed to Don Jazzy’s Mavin Record label, made the former U.S President’s playlist with his smash single ‘Iron Man’ coming at 42nd spot.
“With summer winding down, here’s a sampling of what Michelle and I have been listening to — some new, some old, some fast, some slow,” Obama tweeted on Saturday evening.
The 19-year-old ‘Dumebi’ crooner has since taken to his Twitter to thank Obama and Michelle for finding his song worth their while.
The songs on the Obamas playlist range from emerging artists Maggie Rogers’ “Burning,” Daniel Caesar and H.E.R.’s “Best Part,” Elle Mai’s “Boo’d Up, Rosalia & J. Balvin’s “Con Altura” to rock legends Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl,” Rolling Stones’ “Happy,” Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ in the Years” and the Youngbloods’ “Get Together”.
It also comprises Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (Remix)” with Billy Ray Cyrus, Lizzo’s “Juice,” Beyonce’s “Mood 4 Eva” and Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s “Senorita,” amongst others.
