Barack Obama Reveals Favorite Books and Songs of 2017

Barack Obama delivers a speech in Paris France

By keeping up with his reading list/playlist tradition, it comforts those who are in favor of his leadership and makes Obama one of the most companionable presidents in history.

Before 2017 came to an end, the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama made a decision to share a list of his top books and songs for the year.

While he was president of the United States, Obama was very open about his love for pop culture in the eight years he spent in the office, he built relationships with a lot of icons in music, fashion, literature and other fields.

Obama on Sunday continued the tradition he began during his presidency by sharing his favorite songs and books for 2017. "With some extra time on my hands this year to catch up, I wanted to share the books and music that I enjoyed most".

"I CANT BELIEVE OBAMA SAID HAVANA WAS ON OF HIS FAVORITE SONGS OF THE YEAR I AM REALLY CRUYING OH MY GOD DON'T LOOKA T ME", she tweeted.

His list included a healthy mix of both novels (like "Anything Is Possible" by Elizabeth Strout and "Exit West" by Mohsin Hamid, the latter of which centers of emigration and refugees) and nonfiction, including a biography of Ulysses S. Grant by Ron Chernow.

Jay-Z, Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, U2 and Chris Stapleton were just some of the artists responsible for Barack Obama's favorite songs of the year.
