With all the ongoing turmoil in the world, it was nice to see President Obama have a light, playful interview with People. One of the question asked was what his favorite song of 2015 was, and his answer may or may not be a surprising one.

President Obama’s answer? “How Much A Dollar Cost” by Kendrick Lamar.

Kendrick Lamar released this track on the album To Pimp a Butterfly earlier this year. The First Lady also got to weigh in with her favorite song of the year, which she states was Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”
