As the former president has done for the last few years, Barack Obama returned with his annual favorite songs of 2020 list on Saturday. The past history of the list finds Barack accounting for his favorite records that were released throughout the year with the collection of songs coming from various genres and this year, things are pretty much the same. Obama shared the list with his followers and let them know that he got some help from his youngest daughter, Sasha, in putting it together.
“As usual, I had some valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha, to put this together,” he said.
