Barack Obama shares his annual list of favourites, and after books and web shows and movies, he recently took to sharing his favourite list of music.

The former US president's list was met with much anticipation - Obama had begun publishing lists of book recommendations in 2015, while he was still in office. He served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017.

Sharing the list on Twitter, Obama wrote how he hopes there's a track or two there that 'does the trick.'

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

Artists like Lizzo, Beyonce, Solange and Frank Ocean also made it to Obama's list, but hidden betweeen them was a single artist from India - Prateek Kuhad!

After the list came out, Prateek Kuhad reposted it on his official Facebook page, sharing what an honour it was.

"This just happened and I dont think Ill sleep tonight. Totally flipping out. I have no idea how cold/mess even reached him but thank you @barackobama, thank you universe 🙂 I didnt think 2019 couldve gotten better, but damn was I wrong. What an honour."
