All the year-end lists are coming in, including a few from the former President Barack Obama. Barry took to Instagram to share his favorite songs, movies and books from the past year–continuing a favorite tradition of his.
As a friend and fan of JAY-Z and Beyoncé, it’s no surprise he took a liking to The Carters’ “Apes**t.” Shockingly however, were the inclusions of Cardi B’s “I Like It” and Chance The Rapper’s “My Own Thing” featuring Joey Purp–although the latter harkens back to his Chicago roots.
Check out the rest of his inclusions below and list yours in the comments.

As 2018 draws to a close, I’m continuing a favorite tradition of mine and sharing my year-end lists. 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.
