GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A former president is making a return to fame outside of politics with a song that’s climbing the charts.

Barack Obama is listed a featured performer on the song One Last Time (44 Remix), which debuted at No. 22 on billboard’s Hot R&B songs.

The song was released in December by the creator of Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and is a collaboration between other Hamilton cast members.

In the song, Obama delivers George Washington’s farewell address.

According to Nielson Music, it’s been streamed hundreds of thousands of times and purchased in downloadable form nearly 10-thousand times.

The release is one of several projects Miranda calls “Hamildrops” that raise money for different nonprofit organizations.
