Indian singer Prateek Kuhad's song "cold/mess" has made it to former US President Barack Obama's favourite music of 2019 line-up. The list, shared by Obama on Twitter on Monday, has 35 songs which includes "Hello Sunshine" by rock legend Bruce Springsteen, "Show Me Love" of Alicia Keys featuring Miguel and "Go" by the band Black Eyed Peas.
"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.

There was so much amazing footage left from the cold/mess music video that the lovely folks at @jugaadmotionpictures made a super cute video for an old song of mine - Into The Night. This video magically came together from the uncut footage of the cold/mess video. These takes were from a sequence which never made it to the final cut. It’s been presented just as it was rolled. Not even the reflections were taken out. The film flares are natural leaks from processing and scanning. There couldn’t have been a better way to celebrate one year to the cold/mess video ðŸ™‚ Thanks for all the love guys!
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".
