'Wow! What an honor'
Sampa The Great and E^ST has gained themselves a pretty impressive new fan - Michelle Obama.
The former First Lady Of The United States has included the Melbourne and Sydney-based artists on her newly launched playlist.
Vol 1: The Michelle Obama Playlist is in celebration of Obama's podcast, The Michelle Obama Podcast, which launched on Spotify last month.
"It's filled with incredible new artists and a whole lot of #BlackGirlMagic. I hope you'll give it a listen," said Obama about the playlist via Twitter.
Sampa The Great's Freedom (from 2019's The Return) and E^ST's Friends (from 2018's Life Ain't Always Roses) are both featured alongside artists like Beyonce, Teyana Taylor & Erykah Badu, Jamila Woods, Kendrick Lamar, Little Simz and more.
