Ahead of Christmas, Barack Obama revealed his 25 favourite songs from the past year, and as well as featuring frequent favourites like Lizzo and Bad Bunny, Obama's 2022 list includes Ethel Cain's "American Teenager", Steve Lacy's "Sunshine" featuring Fousheé, Kendrick Lamar's "The Heart Part 5", as well as other songs by Beyoncé, Maggie Rogers, NxWorries, SZA, Danger Mouse and Black Thought, SiR and Scribz Riley, Rosalía, Rema, Koffee and others.

Ethel Cain reacted to being included in the list, writing, "did not have a former president including my anti-war, anti-patriotism fake pop song on his year end list on my 2022 bingo."

Maggie Rogers, Koffee, Beyoncé, Omar Apollo and Burna Boy also made Barack Obama's 2022 summer playlist.
