Barack Obama Made Camila Cabello Freak Out. Here’s Why
Not letting go of certain traditions from his Oval Office days, Barack Obama shared his favorite songs from 2017 on the last day of the year and some of the musicians selected are reacting to — or more accurately, freaking out over — being featured on 44’s annual top tracks list. Camila Cabello, included on the list for her hit song “Havana,” shared her excitement on social media once she realized she made Obama’s faves.
“I CANT BELIEVE OBAMA SAID HAVANA WAS ONE OF HIS FAVORITE SONGS OF THE YEAR I AM REALLY CRUYING OH MY GOD DONT LOOKA T ME,” she tweeted and then added another all-caps flip-out, “I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS OH MY GOD.”
Cabello wasn’t the only one to respond. J. Balvin, who topped Obama’s list for his smash “Mi Gente,” featuring Willy William, wrote “Yes!!!!” when he got wind of the news on Twitter. DJ Khaled also got an honorable mention and shared the screenshot on Instagram captioning it: “Bless up @barackobama HAPPY NEW YEAR ! #WILDTHOUGHTS ON THAT @barackobama play list #GRATEFUL 2018 LETS GO!!!!”
Other songs that made the diverse list include Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble,” JAY-Z’s “Family Feud,” U2’s “Ordinary Love (Extraordinary Mix)” and Style’s “Sign of the Times,” along with Montana’s “Unforgettable.”
While leading the free world, Obama took time out to compile a slew of Spotify playlists, including his favorite workout songs and his oh-so-popular summer playlist. The music-streaming service even jokingly offered a position to the former POTUS back in January 2017 in response to him saying that he’s waiting “for a job at Spotify.”
