The 59-year-old star shared his top 30 picks, which included the likes of Mac Miller, Dua Lipa and Travis Scott, as well as few more predictable choices like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan.

But it was his number one place on the list that left fans "shook" – the 'Savage Remix' by Megan Thee Stallion featuring Beyoncé.

While it may be daunting to have the former President and First Lady as your roommates, the 22-year-old's boyfriend, Rory Farquharson, received a glowing review from the Obamas.

Barack said youngest daughter Sasha helped him with the list 

"He’s British, wonderful young man, and he was sort of stuck because there was a whole visa thing, and he had a job set up," Barack shared on The Bill Simmons Podcast on Thursday, adding that he stayed with their family "for a while".

Joking about the amount of food it took to feed the young man, Barack added: "We took him in, and I didn’t want to like him, but he’s a good kid. The only thing you discover — [and] this is not a surprise to you, Bill, because you’ve got a son — young men eat. It’s weird to watch them consume food. My grocery bill went up about 30 per cent."
