If running the United States wasn’t impressive enough, former president Barack Obama is now also a Billboard charting artist.

Composer, Lin-Manuel Miranda, recruited Obama for the 44 remix of “One Last Time” by Christopher Jackson, BeBe Winans, and Alex Lacamoire. Released during the holiday season, the former president offers a moving reading of George Washington’s final words as president on the track.

“One Last Time (44 Remix)” is now sitting at number 22 on Billboard’s Hot R&B songs chart. According to Nielsen Music, the song has now garnered more than 307,000 streams in the US and recorded over 9,000 downloads.
