The 44th US President, Barack Obama, has a yearly habit of sharing a list of the tunes he listens to throughout the summer, and over the years, certain Afrobeats tracks have made the cut.

Obama revealed his summer playlist for 2023 on July 20th, and Grammy-winning Nigerian artist Burna Boy’s most recent album, “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,” made the cut.

Not only is Burna Boy from Nigeria, but Ayra Starr’s 2023 single “Stability” is also included on the list.

They are included on the playlist, including classic and contemporary songs by Jorja Smith, SZA, J Hus, Drake, Nas, and Rosalia.

Obama’s summer playlist has previously included songs by Burna Boy, with 2022’s “Final Last” cutting. Rush by Ayra Starr was included in Obama’s 2022 end-of-year playlist.

Wizkid, Rema, and Tems are Nigerians with songs in Obama’s playlists.
