After sharing his favorite books and movies (plus a nod to TV) of the year lists, Barack Obama has dropped his 2019 musical playlist. The mix includes tracks by DaBaby, Frank Ocean, Summer Walker, Burna Boy, Kaytranada, Big Thief, and Snoh Aalegra among others. There are also mentions for Beyoncé, Rosalía, Lizzo, and Lil Nas X, all of whom appeared on Obama's summer playlist back in August.

Speaking about the list of songs, Obama said: "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."
