This year, his top songs come from the likes of Big Thief, Frank Ocean, Rosalía, Solange, the National, Beyoncé, Lizzo and DaBaby.
Amongst his favourites are films like Amazing Grace, Booksmart, The Irishman, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Little Women, Marriage Story and Parasite.
He also binged some TV shows, which he "considered as powerful as movies," including Fleabag, Unbelievable and Watchmen.
But just when you thought former presidents were just like us — spending majority of the year plopped down on a couch, streaming Prime and Netflix — Obama also shared his list of 2019's top books.
See his full list of favourites below.
Next up are my favorite movies and TV shows of 2019. Of course, there's also American Factory, a film from our own production company, Higher Ground, that was recently shortlisted for an Oscar. Here's the full list: pic.twitter.com/PEcgwotcxm— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 29, 2019
As we wind down 2019, I wanted to share with you my annual list of favorites that made the last year a little brighter. We'll start with books today — movies and music coming soon. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. pic.twitter.com/l5qTGkAPok— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 28, 2019
From hip-hop to country to The Boss, here are my songs of the year. 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. pic.twitter.com/mQ2VssyDwt— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) December 30, 2019
