Afrobeats, Nigeria’s largest music export, continues to gain traction on international stages, with some of its ambassadors appearing on former American President Barack Obama’s 2022 summer playlist.

Burna Boy’s ‘Last Last,’ Tems’ ‘Vibe Out,’ and Pheelz’ ‘Finesse’ with Beyonce’s ‘Break My Soul,’ Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Die Hard,’ and several other records from a diverse list of artists made the cut this year on Obama’s current summer playlist.

In recent years, the former President’s summer and year-end picks that have clearly shown support for Afrobeats have included Rema’s ‘Iron Man,’ Wizkid & Tems’ ‘Essence,’ Burna’s ‘Anybody,’ and others.

On Tuesday, Obama tweeted that the playlist was an example of how music can truly bring people together.
