The 44th president made his debut on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart, reports New York Daily News. Obama collaborated with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda for “One Last Time (44 Remix),” a remix of song originally featured in the hit play. The song made it to the 22nd spot, between John Legend’s cover of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “Butterflies” by Queen Naija.
Obama recites a passage from George Washington’s farewell speech on the track. Bebe Winans and Hamilton star Christopher Jackson are also featured. “One Last Time” was the last Hamildrop of 2018, a series of songs remastered by Miranda.
This isn’t the first time Obama’s voice has earned him recognition. He won a Grammy in 2006 and 2008 for the audio version of his books The Audacity Of Hope and Dreams Of My Father.
Well done, Mr. President.
