Michael Kiwanuka’s song features on Obama’s summer playlist

Former US President Barrack Obama a few days ago released an 18-truck playlist for 2021 summer.

Notably on this list, is Michael Kiwanuka’s ‘You Ain’t the Problem’ which comes in on number 8. Kiwanuka is a Ugandan British artiste and to make it on Obama’s playlist is a big deal.

The playlist also features tracks like ‘Wants and needs’ by Drake ft Lil Baby, ‘Allure’ by Jay-Z, ‘If you really love me’ by Stevie Wonder, ‘Neighbors’ by J Cole, ‘Desperado’ Rihanna, ‘Leave the door open’ by Bruno Mars, Anderson, Paak, Silk Sonic’ and ‘Find a way’ by H.E.R ft Lil Baby among others.

“With so many folks getting together with family and friends, there’s a lot to celebrate this summer. I put together a playlist of some of the songs I’ve been listening to lately — it’s a mix of old and new, household names and emerging artists, and a whole lot in between,” Obama posted on twitter

The last list Obama released had Tems and Wizkid’s ‘Essence’.
