Every year, Barack Obama compiles a list of his favorite songs. For 2017, he included a range of artists such as JAY-Z, Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, SZA and Frank Ocean. Apparently, SZA just found out that she made the cut because she recently posted about it on Instagram. Since she was a few days late to the celebration party, the singer-songwriter decided to share a screenshot of her candid reaction to sum up all of her feelings about it with the caption "My actual reaction vs something really sane n well written lol." As you can see in the photo, she was very excited because she typed a series of messages in all caps.


SZA is currently the most nominated woman artist for the 2018 Grammy Awards with five nominations to her name. This past October, her debut album Ctrl was certified gold. Scroll down to read her candid response to Obama.
