The President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris have released a 46-song playlist in honour of their upcoming administration including Destiny, a song by Burna Boy.
Destiny, has made the official 46-track playlist by US President-elect and vice-president-elect ahead of their inauguration on January 20, 2020.
The song, ‘Destiny,’ is about the power of providence and divination. The song is off Burna Boy’s Grammy-nominated album, African Giant.
The playlist was put together by American music producer and rapper DJ D-Nice and actress, Issa Rae’s Raedio in partnership with the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
The Chief Executive of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, Tony Allen, said, “During a tumultuous year that has kept so many loved ones apart, music has been a consistent vehicle that has kept us connected. Whether you are a country soul, a jazz enthusiast, a hip-hop head, a classical sort, or just love that old-time rock and roll, music clarifies, inspires, unites, and heals.
“These songs and artists reflect the relentless spirit and rich diversity of America. They are the score to a new chapter and will help bring people together as the Biden-Harris administration begins its important work to unite our country.”
Burna Boy has become a fixture on the playlists of high-profile American politicians. In August 2020, he appeared on former US president Barack Obama’s summer playlist alongside fellow Nigerian stars Davido, and Wizkid.
