As incoming US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will be sworn into office on the 20th of January, Burna Boy’s song had been listed as one of the songs to be played on the inauguration day.
A list of a 46-track playlist songs to be played on Inauguration day was curated by DJ D-Nice and Issa Rae‘s music company Raedio in partnership with the presidential Inauguration Company to fit the Biden/Harris team’s theme “America United”.
Asides from Afrobeats heavyweight Burna Boy‘s “Destiny“, other international stars on the playlist including Bill Withers, (‘Lovely Day’), Marvin Gaye (‘Got to Give It Up – Pt. 1’), Bruce Springsteen (‘We Take Care of Our Own’), Kendrick Lamar (‘Now or Never’), Bob Marley & The Wailers (‘Could You Be Loved’), Jill Scott (‘Golden’) and Dua Lipa (‘Levitating’), among others.
A member of the Biden-Harris team stated that the playlist “represents the diversity of our nation and our strength and resilience as we look forward to new leadership and a new era in America.”
