Who knew the US president was a fan of pop singer Iggy Azalea? Probably not even him, but a video of the president ‘rapping’ the lyrics has gone viral nonetheless.

The YouTube Channel ‘BarackDubs’ has taken snippets from the President’s speeches and weaved them together to make up the lyrics of the pop tune.

Since the video was uploaded only two days ago, it has already received over one million hits, and has received a good reaction online.

The clip is just over a minute long, but proves to make a very amusing cover all around, mostly because we get to hear Obama say things we never thought we would, such as that he “drops it low and picks it up” while he's “takin' all the liquor straight.”

The makers of the clip have done similar things before, and in the past made Obama look like he’s singing hits likes Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky,’ Miley Cyrus’ ‘Party in the USA and Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe.’

According to the YouTube description, viewers will be treated next to the presidential rendition of ‘Problem,’ the recent top charting hit by singer Ariana Grande, due to be ‘sung’ by the president on August 18th.
