Annually Former President of the United States Barack Obama updates his playlist during summer.
Since 2015 Barack Obama has been releasing an annual summer playlist that features the songs he’s listening to.
This years’ playlist features Nigerian Afrobeats stars Tems, Burna Boy Buju, BNXN, others.
Every year, I get excited to share my summer playlist because I learn about so many new artists from your replies—it’s an example of how music really can bring us all together.

Afrobeats and Barack Obama Summer Playlist: This is not the first time that Afrobeats acts will be featured on the famous summer playlist of the 44th United States president. In 2019, Rema‘s ‘Iron Man’made the playlist while in 2020, Wizkid’s ‘Essence’also made the list.
With the continuous ascension of Afrobeats, Nigerian artists can be expected to feature in the coming years.
