SZA, Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar all appear...
Barack Obama

Barack Obama has compiled a 'Best Of 2017' playlist - and it's pretty damn great.

The politician sparked a tradition when seated in the White House of sharing the music and books that had inspired him during the year.

Now settling into his role as a citizen, Barack Obama decided to update this tradition with a new playlist.

It's a pretty fine selection, too - Clash favourites such as SZA, Frank Ocean, and Kendrick Lamar all appear.

Well worth your time during these January days, we really have to wonder if President Trump's own selection would be so inviting...

Tune in now.
