Obama took to her Instagram page, @michelleobama, on Sunday, where she posted her playlist. She said the playlist helps her go through her toughest workout sessions. A rundown of the playlist reveals that Burna Boy’s song falls fourth on her list.
“It’s about that time when New Year’s goals and resolutions get just a bit harder to stick to. To offer a little inspiration, I want to share my go-to 2020 #WorkoutPlaylist with all of you.
“These songs always seem to give me that extra boost to get through my toughest workouts. What’s on your playlist? #IAmBecoming #SelfcareSunday,” she wrote.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that in 2019, Michelle’s husband, Barrack Obama, released his summer playlist that sparked off a lot of conversation online following Rema’s ‘Iron Man’ inclusion. Burna Boy’s My Money My Baby is rendered in Pidgin English and a Fela-styled Afrobeat, sounding like Fela Kuti’s 1972 “Shakara”.
