Obama Ended Up On The Billboard Hot R&B Songs Chart

Adjust Comment Print

Obama has landed on the Billboard charts for the first time.

In addition to being one of the most popular US Presidents in recent history, Barack Obama has maintained a rather strong relationship with music.

The track - whose name is a throwback to Obama, who was the 44th USA president - is a collab among original Hamilton cast member Jackson, gospel musician BeBe Winans, and of course, Obama, who delivers George Washington's farewell address.

The former POTUS is slotted at the number 22 spot on this week's Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart with the single, "One Last Time (44 Remix)", reports Billboard.

Obama delivers George Washington's farewell address in the song.

Oddly, this isn't the first time that Barack Obama has hit the charts before, previously appearing on two, now defunct Billboard charts. The song features Obama along with Christopher Jackson and gospel star BeBe Winans. Its title "One Last Time (44 Remix)" is a nod to the former commander in chief, who was the 44th USA president.

Creator of the hit Broadway show, Lin Manuel Miranda, released the record last month just before the holidays as a gospel-inspired remix of a song from the onstage play.
