As usual, former President Barack Obama has shared a playlist of his favorite songs of the year.
The 27-track curated Spotify playlist is a mix of pop, rock, hip-hop, reggaeton, jazz, house, Tuareg guitar jams and gothic blues.
“I’ve always enjoyed listening to a wide variety of music, so it’s no surprise that I listened to a little bit of everything this year. I hope you find a new artist or song to add to your own playlist,” Obama said in a note accompanying his year-end list.
The 2021 all-new playlist features tracks that defined the year, including Jon Batiste‘s groundbreaking “Freedom,” Brandi Carlile‘s “Broken Horses,” Lil Nas X‘s “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name),” Mitski‘s “The Only Heartbreaker,” The War On Drugs’ “I Don’t Live Here Anymore,” and Cardi B and Lizzo‘s “Rumors.”
