The former president shows his exquisite taste in music with songs by Frank Ocean, Rihanna, and Megan Thee Stallion
2020 has been some of the most sucky years to come in recent times. We are facing disaster after disaster, and shocking reports of celebrity deaths are happening on the side. The opening event was the coronavirus pandemic which has now stopped us from venturing outside unless there’s a proper reason. So people are usually sitting at home and slowly losing their minds.
Enter Barack Obama. While this isn’t some world saving event, it’s still enjoyable and makes us a little less depressed. The former president shared his annual playlist on Monday, captioning it, “Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time listening to music with my family. I wanted to share some of my favourites from the summer – including songs from some of the artists at this week’s @DemConvention. Hope you enjoy it.”
A trend starting from 2019
The playlist has Frank Ocean’s “Cayendo,” Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé’s “Savage Remix”, and Rihanna and Drake’s “Work.” Other songs include Sheryl Crow’s “All I Wanna Do,” The Chicks’ “Gaslighter,” which the lead singer Natalie Maines has used to speak up against president Trump for his response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Obama had shared his playlist of favourite songs last year as well, and he may continue to do so for the years to come. Music lovers around the world will greatly appreciate it as there is always that great song you haven’t listened to yet.
For now, we can appreciate the little things before the pandemic lessens, and we can start hitting the dance floors once again, or attending live concerts.
