    New Delhi (Sputnik): Former President of the US Barak Obama, whose fandom is spread all over the world and has over 111 million followers on Twitter alone, has left Indians thrilled with his yearly-ritual of sharing his year-end lists of favourite books, films, and music.

    Indian singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad is on cloud nine since Barack Obama released his "Favourite Music of 2019” playlist.

    The Indian musician's cold/mess made it to the list alongside some chartbuster tracks from Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, and Bruce Springsteen. Kuhad has also become one of the first Indian artists to feature on Obama's much-awaited year-end list.

    Kuhad soon reacted to Obama’s revelation, saying that he is flipping out and his 2019 couldn’t have ended on a better note.

    The independent musician, who has also lent his voice to Bollywood films, released cold/mess in 2018 amongst five other songs and the song made him one of the most-streamed artists on Spotify.

    The news of the millennial singer making it to Obama’s list left his fans thrilled who said he is very deserving of the honour and congratulated him.

    The singer is currently on a global winter tour titled Supermoon. The Indian lap of the tour on 12-22 December coincided with the protests in the country against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

    And Kuhad’s concert found its mention in the placards of young protesters.

    Kuhad is one of the most-streamed artists on Spotify. The singer's Token and Charms album bagged him an MTV Europe Music Award and Indie Album of the Year award from Apple’s iTunes.
