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. pic.twitter.com/mQ2VssyDwt— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 30, 2019
Cold/mess made it to the list alongside songs of other international sensations like Beyonce, Young Thug, Lizzo and more such artists. The list did not stick to any major labels or artists. It included internationals, older songs like La Vida Es Un Carnaval by Angélique Kidjo.
Meanwhile, Prateek Kuhad could not believe that the song made it to the former President's profound playlist. He mentioned in a Twitter feed that he is in absolute awe. He also thanked Barack Obama in his Tweet for making this the highlight for him in 2019.
