Jamaican reggae sensation Koffee has been featured on a playlist by former US President Barack Obama, for a fourth time.
Obama recently shared his annual playlist of favorite songs of the year and credited his daughter, Sasha, for helping him to craft the list.
“Here are some of my favorite songs of the year. As usual, I had some valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha, to put this together. I hope you find a new song or two to listen to,” Obama tweeted.

On the list of 30 songs is the collaboration between British rapper J Hus and Koffee entitled ‘Repeat’, which was released in February of this year.
It is the fourth time that Koffee is being featured on a playlist by Obama. Her breakout single “Toast” was on the list of his favorite songs of 2019. Obama’s summer playlists of 2020 and 2019 also featured the young Jamaican.
The features have been major publicity for the 20-year-old Spanish Town native, born Mikayla Simpson, who won the Best Reggae Album at the 2020 Grammys. She was the first woman and the youngest person to win the Reggae Grammy.
Koffee’s EP, ‘Rapture’, beat out projects by Julian Marley, Sly & Robbie and Roots Radics, Steel Pulse and Third World in securing the coveted award.
