On Friday, the former president shared his annual year-end list of favourite songs, books, and movies via Instagram. And, if there's anything that the lists prove, it's that Obama has an impeccable (and eclectic) appreciation for the arts.
"As 2018 draws to a close, I'm continuing a favourite tradition of mine and sharing my year-end lists," Obama captioned the post. "It gives me a moment to pause and reflect on the year through the books, movies, and music that I found most thought-provoking, inspiring, or just plain loved. It also gives me a chance to highlight talented authors, artists, and storytellers – some who are household names and others who you may not have heard of before. Swipe through to see my best of 2018 list – I hope you enjoy reading, watching, and listening."
While some of his top films include Black Panther, Won't You Be My Neighbour?, and Annihilation, his best-loved book is an obvious winner. As for his favourite songs of 2018? Look ahead to see which tunes made the list!
