SZA got a major co-sign from Barack Obama as 2017 came to a close when the former POTUS listed the TDE singer on his list of favorite songs from the year -- and you can probably guess how she took the news.

Last week, the 28-year-old Grammy nominee posted a text message exchange on Instagram, sharing her priceless reaction to her song “Broken Clocks” landing on Obama’s coveted playlist, captioning the photo: "My actual reaction vs. something really sane and well written lol #brokenclocks."

Besides SZA, Obama’s music list includes songs from Kendrick Lamar, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, U2, French Montana, Frank Ocean, Travi$ Scott, J Balvin, Bruce Springsteen and more.
