Burna Boy, Rema’s Songs Make Barack Obama’s 2019 “Songs Of The Year”


Former President of the United States of America, Barack Obama has shared his favorite songs of 2019 and our very own stars made it to his list.

From Lizzo’s “Juice”, Wale & Jeremih’s “On Chill”, to Beyoncé & Jay Z’s “Mood 4 Eva” and our very own Mavin Records‘ Rema’s “Iron Man” (also featured in the Obama’s summer playlist) and Burna Boy’s “Anybody” who were the only Nigerian stars on the 35-song list.

Sharing his favorite music for the year 2019, Obama wrote:

Recall in August 2019, the former President shared his summer playlist and fast rising Nigerian Afropop singer, Rema was sitting at number 42 with Iron Man.

According to Obama, it was a sampling of “what Michelle and I have been listening to — some new, some old, some fast, some slow. Hope you enjoy. “We hope to record more wins as such [in the Nigerian music industry] in the coming year.
