Former President Barack Obama Makes Debut On R&B Charts
Barack Obama appears to have earned an accolade outside of politics. According to Billboard Hot R&B charts, the former 44th President earned a spot at #22 for his appearance on a track from the Broadway musical “Hamilton,” called “One Last Time.”
In addition to Obama, the 4-minute track features Christopher Jackson and BeBe Winans; Obama appears at the end of the song, delivering George Washington’s farewell address. Jackson, who was an original cast member, played Washington during the original run of the musical.
The gospel track was released December 20, 2018 by the Broadway musical’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, in the accompany of a series of “Hamildrops–” songs intended to raise money for various nonprofits.
The track is available on all streaming platforms.
