Former President Barack Obama took to social media Monday to share his favorite music of 2019, and among the hits were the track “Suge” from DaBaby; “Juice” from Lizzo; and the Mavis Staples protest song “Change.”

“From hip-hop to country to The Boss, here are my songs of the year,” Obama wrote on Instagram. “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.”

On Sunday, the 44th president shared his list of favorite movies and TV shows of 2019. Among his picks were Martin Scorsese’s crime thriller The Irishman and Amazing Grace, a documentary about the making of Aretha Franklin’s best-selling gospel album, “Amazing Grace.”

Obama’s selections continue a tradition he started in the White House of sharing year-end lists of his favorite books, movies and music.
