This is Barack Obama's best of 2018 playlist

Former President Barack Obama has a few apolitical reminders of what went well in 2018.

On Friday, Obama continued what he called his "favorite tradition" and shared a list of his favorite songs, books, and movies of the year. His eclectic music taste featured everything from the Carters' "Apesh**t" to "Girl Goin' Nowhere" by country star Ashley McBryde, to a throwback album from jazz legend Nancy Wilson, who died this month.

Black Panther and The Death of Stalin were on an alphabetized list of Obama's top movies, while he said Michelle Obama's Becoming was "obviously" his favorite book. Check out all of Obama's 2018 picks below. Kathryn Krawczyk
