New Delhi:

At 2019’s end, singer-songwriter Parteej Kuhad was in for a surprise when he found out that former POTUS, Barack Obama had singled out his song, cold /mess as one of2019’s favs. Kuhad’s song, cold/mess made an entry in the 35 list of Obama’s favourites that included other rock legends such as Bruce Springsteen.

"From hip-hop to country to The Boss, here are my songs of the year. If you're looking for something to keep you company on a long drive or help you turn up a workout, I hope there's a track or two in here that does the trick," the ex POTUS captioned the list.

Reacting to the news that his cold/mess has found a place in Obama’s iPod, Kuhad expressed how ‘shocked’ he was saying,

“I was playing Chinese Checkers with my mom and my girlfriend, when someone I knew from a music sharing platform shared his post with me. For the first few minutes, I was just staring at the post and wondering, why was I sent this post. Then I saw my song in his list and I was honestly shocked’’ Kuhad told HT.

“I am still honestly shocked. I don’t even know how it happened. Its not like that I am signed to a record label or anything like that. I don’t even know how he heard my song, or who made him listen to it,” he further added.

Featuring actors Zoya Hussain and Jim Sarbh, Kuhad's "cold/mess" featured on number 22 and the Delhi-based singer said he was honoured by the gesture.

"This just happened and I don't think I'll sleep tonight. Totally flipping out. I have no idea how 'cold/mess' even reached him but thank you @barackobama, thank you universe. I didn't think 2019 could've gotten better, but damn was I wrong. What an honour," Kuhad replied on Obama's tweet.

Sarbh also gave a shout-out to the singer on Twitter.

Previously, Obama shared his favourite movies and TV shows of 2019, and the list includes Phoebe Waller-Bridge's "Fleabag" season two, limited series "Unbelievable", Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman" and Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho's genre-defying class drama "Parasite".
