Barack Obama shares his best music of 2023, and it’s a super eclectic mix

If you want to dance like Barack Obama, you can do so from Afrobeats to Reggaeton.

The former president shared his list of favorite songs of the year to his official Instagram on Friday, and it was pretty varied.

Included was “On My Mama” by Victoria Monét, “Crazy Love” by Rita Wilson and Keith Urban, “Water” by Tyla and “La Bebé (Remix)” by Yng Lvcas & Peso Pluma.

There was also “Cobra” by Megan Thee Stallion, “The Returner” by Allison Russell, and Zach Bryan’s “I Remember Everything” featuring Kacey Musgraves and more.

Ironically (or not), Obama also included Beyoncé’s “America Has A Problem” which includes rapper Kendrick Lamar.

Oscar-winner Jon Batiste also made the list, with his song “It Never Went Away.”

In a nod to any possible glaring omissions, in the caption to the list, Obama wrote, “Let me know if there are any artists or songs I should check out.”

It’s become an annual tradition for Obama to share his best books, movies and music of the year. He also does special picks, like his summer playlists.
