Obama revealed 2022 Summer Playlist – Every year, former US president Barrack Obama publishes a list of his top songs from around the world. The 44th US president published his most recent song list on Tuesday in a tweet for summer 2022.
He wrote: “Every year, I get excited to share my summer playlist because I learn about so many new artists from your replies—it’s an example of how music really can bring us all together. Here’s what I’ve been listening to this summer. What songs would you add?”
The song “Vibe Out” by Tems is one of the foremost on this playlist. On the list, you can also see Burna Boy’s wildly popular song “Last Last.” One of the tracks that made the playlist was “Finesse” by Pheelz and BNXN.
The Nigerian artists on Obama’s summer 2022 playlist would be joining a rising group of other superstars who had previously been selected in a like manner. Burna Boy’s song “Anybody” and Rema’s song “Iron Man” were both included in the list for 2019. In 2020, Wizkid’s album “Made In Lagos,” which features Tems, and the song “Essence,” made the list.
