Barack Obama likes to party — proof? His taste in music

His 2022 favourites include artists Bad Bunny, Lizzo, Beyonce, SZA and Rosalia.

When we think of Barack Obama, an image of the former US president in a sombre suit is what pops up. Listening to his 2022 music playlist has shattered our perception of him entirely as we can’t help but scream in glee and dance along.

On Saturday, he posted a list of his favourite songs this year as he has done in the past. “I always enjoy sharing my end of year music playlist with all of you — and this year we heard a lot of great songs. Here are some of my favourites,” he wrote. Last year, Arooj Aftab’s ‘Mohabbat’ made it to his summer playlist.

Though there aren’t any Pakistani artists on his list this year, it has got some of the most popular artists today and songs that are trending on social media. Bad Bunny, Lizzo, Beyonce, SZA and Rosalia are singers young people are most enthusiastic about. Obama’s music taste seems to be very upbeat, he likes to listen to tunes that leave you with no other choice but to shake it.

Obama is not basic though — nope. There are quite a few songs in the list of 25 that we’re not familiar with. The politician has got a diverse palate, that’s for sure.

He also posted his favourite movies of 2022. His taste in films seems pretty versatile too — action film Top Gun: Maverick, historical documentary Descendant and sci-fi movie Everything Everywhere All At Once made the cut.

We don’t know about you but we have updated our playlists and watch-lists to make room for these funky and interesting additions.

We were always close to American hearts but recently india has eroded much of our goodwill by its propaganda of terrorism against us.

He was a failed US President, he did nothing good for world peace specially in the Middle Eastern Countries Palestine-Libya-Iraq-Afghanistan-Pakistan-Syria-Lebanon and many more countries in the regions. His successor President Donald Trump was a much better President.

There is another side of the story. Sure, most people like music. Nothing wrong and nothing surprising. The other aspect is called soft marketing
