Barack Obama has unveiled his favorite songs of 2021.


The former president curated a Spotify playlist made up of 27 tracks he enjoyed throughout the year. As with his previous lists, this one included a variety of old and new records that spanned across multiple genres, such as pop, indie rock, reggaeton, and rap.


"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," he captioned the list on Instagram. "I hope you find a new artist or song to add to your own playlist."
