President Barack Obama says the song by the Grammy-nominated rapper from Compton, California, is his favorite song of 2015.
In an interview with People magazine that was released Wednesday, Obama also shared his favorite book and movie of the year. They are “Fates and Furies,” a novel about a marriage by Lauren Groff, and “The Martian,” starring Matt Damon.
Obama’s wife, Michelle, revealed her picks, too, telling People that she can’t get enough of Bruno Mars’ song “Uptown Funk.” She and a troupe of dancers performed to the lively song earlier this year on “Ellen.”
For her favorite book, Mrs. Obama picked another marriage tome, “The Light of the World,” by family friend Elizabeth Alexander. It’s about the unexpected death of Alexander’s husband in 2012 and raising their two sons in the aftermath.
And for the first lady’s favorite movie? She chose “Inside Out,” an animated film led by comedian Amy Poehler.
