For the historic inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, Burna Boy’s ‘Destiny,’ a song that talks about the power of providence and divination has made the 46-track playlist. The song is a track in Burna Boy’s recent and Grammy-nominated album, African Giant.
The playlist was arranged by producer and rapper DJ D-Nice and actress Issa Rae’s Raedio, in collaboration with the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
While talking about the playlist, 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.”
The co-founder of Raedio, Benoni Tagoe said: “We know that music has the power to bring people together, and after a year of national challenges and division, we hope this collection serves as an indication of a new beginning, positive change, and a reminder that music of all types is a common language.”
The playlist is now available on TIDAL, Soundcloud, Apple Music and Spotify.
