The people have spoken, and Barack Obama will be the President of the United States for one more term! On Nov. 6th, Americans casted their votes and proved that Obama deserved another shot in the White House. Many artists have been supporting President Obama ever since his inauguration back in 2008, so in honor of his re-election, here are our favorite lyrics that are all about President Barack Obama…
5. will.i.am — Yes We Can
“Yes we can to justice and equality / Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity / Yes we can heal this nation / Yes we can repair this world”
will.i.am released this song in 2008 when Obama first ran for President, and we’re revisiting it because it can apply to his re-election all over again. Yes we can!
4. Common — Changes
“What is change? Change is Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi / Shakespeare, Tupac Shakur, Barack Obama”
In these lyrics, rapper Common compares Barack Obama to all the great thinkers, religious leaders, and music icons that promoted change and forward thinking. That’s a pretty amazing comparison!
3. Jay-Z — Jockin’ Jay-Z
“I rock wit Obama but I ain’t a politician / And I do what the thugs and the gangsta’s do”
Jay-Z is one of the most popular Obama fans out of all the artists, and lots of his tracks name-drop the President with pride. This song is no different!
2. Young Jeezy — My President (ft. Nas)
“Tell him I’m doin’ fine, Obama for mankind / We ready for damn change, so y’all let the man shine”
Once again, this song was released when Obama was first elected as president, but many people have been turning to Young Jeezy’s lyrics this time around because they’re ready for change again!
1. Mariah Carey — Bring It On Home
“We just everyday people, tryin’ to make it through the pain / Yet we intentionally hurt each other playing silly games / But when it comes down to win or lose, don’t give up the fight / Cause strength is what we need and love can save our lives”
This song by Mariah Carey made it to no.1 simply because she released it for Obama’s re-election! She must have had a hunch that he’d get elected again, unless she recorded it hours after his win…
