It wouldn’t be right if former President Barack Obama didn’t continue his tradition of sharing his list of favorite things with people across the world. Keeping the tradition alive, he shared his favorite songs of the year.
Leading the way, J. Cole, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil’ Baby, Young, Thug, Travis Scott and DaBaby appeared on the former Senator’s list. His list also included the work of classic artists like Bob Dylan, Jeff Tweedy and Goodie Mob. Rounding out his playlist, the bestselling author threw in a few songs from Don Toliver, H.E.R, Jhene Aiko and Anderson .Paak.
Here are some of my favorite songs of the year. As usual, I had some valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha, to put this together. I hope you find a new song or two to listen to. pic.twitter.com/K1NRPYiSg4

Barack Obama’s latest playlist isn’t entirely different from last year’s. In 2019, his playlist included J. Cole, Young Thug, DaBaby and Travis Scott. While Lizzo and Lil’ Nas X missed this year’s last as opposed to 2019’s, they could very well be on it next year.
In addition to sharing his 2020 playlist, the former President also told us about his favorite shows, movies and books of the year. In his spare time, he read Caste by Isabel Wilkerson and Missionaries by Phil Klay. He also wrote his own book, A Promised Land. As for his screen time, he spent time watching I May Destroy You from HBO and Selah and the Spades starring Lovie Simone.
