Lido Pimienta has received a special presidential seal of approval…
Barack Obama has closed out the year with a list of his top songs from 2020, with the 34-year-old Colombian Canadian musician, singer and songwriter making the list.
Pimienta’s single “Nada,” featuring Li Saumet, is among the 30 singles selected by the former U.S. president, who says he got a little help from his daughter Sasha while making his playlist this year.
“Here are some of my favorite songs of the year. As usual, I had some valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha, to put this together. I hope you find a new song or two to listen to,” Obama wrote on Twitter.
But Pimienta isn’t the only Latinx artist to make the list…
Bad Bunny’s “La Dificil” earned a spot on Obama’s must-hear roster.
The 26-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton star’s single was released on February 29, 2020, and it was accompanied by a music video directed by Cliqua and Stillz.
Jhené Aiko’s warm weather anthem “Summer 2020” has also had Obama’s list.
The 32-year-old part Spanish and Dominican American singer and songwriter’s record, which samples Kool & The Gang‘s classic “Summer Madness,” is featured on the deluxe edition of Aiko’s Grammy-nominated third studio album, Chilombo.
Here’s the complete list of Obama’s song picks:
