As the year 2019 bids adieu, former President of United States Barack Obama on Monday shared the list of his favourite music of the year which included the song Cold/Mess by Indian musician Prateek Kuhad alongside Beyonce’s Mood 4 Eva, The Black Keys Go among others.
Continuing with the tradition of sharing the year-end list of his favourite music, books, and films, the former President took to Twitter on December 30 and shared his favourites of the year in each of the genres.
“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,” read Obama’s tweet.
This just happened and I don’t think I’ll sleep tonight. Totally flipping out. I have no idea how cold/mess even reached him but thank you @barackobama, thank you universe 🙂 I didn’t think 2019 could’ve gotten better, but damn was I wrong. What an honour. https://t.co/zwaJFIQLmC— Prateek Kuhad (@prateekkuhad) December 30, 2019
