This month, fans and publications worldwide are sharing year-end accolades for the best in music, film, TV, froyo, et al. And that includes the Leader of the Free World, President Barack Obama.
In a new interview with PEOPLE, the President revealed his favorite song, and surprisingly enough, it’s not his Coldplay collaboration, nor anything off the Pope’s prog-rock LP. Instead, it’s Kendrick Lamar’s “How Much a Dollar Cost”, the religious-rooted deep cut from his latest opus, To Pimp A Butterfly.
Additionally, President Obama revealed Ridley Scott’s The Martian to be his favorite film of 2015. First Lady Michelle Obama opted for Inside Out.
Below, revisit “How Much a Dollar Cost”. Then, make sure to check out our own picks for the year’s best albums and songs. Spoiler: Kendrick keeps on winning.
