Lizzo, Prateek Kuhad, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, Lil Nas X, Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Maggie Rogers and others all featured on former US President Barack Obama's list of favourite songs in 2019.

A big fan of lists, Obama revealed his 2019 song picks on Monday, his favourite movies and TV shows on Sunday and his favourite books of the year on Saturday.

"From hip-hop to country to The Boss, here are my songs of the year. If you’re looking for something to keep you company on a long drive or help you turn up a workout, I hope there’s a track or two in here that does the trick," he wrote

Featured on the list are Lizzo's 'Juice,' Prateek Kuhad's 'Cold/Mess', Beyonce's 'Mood 4 Eva,' Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus' 'Old Town Road (Remix),' Bruce Springsteen's 'Hello Sunshine,' Frank Ocean's 'In My Room,' Alicia Keys and Miguel's 'Show Me Love' and Rogers' 'Burning'.

Tracks by Dominic Fike, Rema, DaBaby, The Highwomen, The National, Solange and Burna Boy also made the cut.

He also curated his hit playlist on Spotify, where Barack and Michelle will soon be releasing podcasts as part of a deal signed in June through their production company Higher Ground, which is also collaborating with Netflix.
