Obama has long professed his love for Wonder's music, and Wonder has repeatedly returned the favor regarding his presidency. Most recently, he performed at a fundraiser for the president on October 7, which included a concert called "30 Days to Victory," and a private dinner thrown by Jeffrey Katzenberg.

This is one of several songs coming out for Obama this week. Bruce Springsteen performed a tune he wrote for the president on Wednesday, while Ne-Yo, Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls, Herbie Hancock, Delta Rae and Natasha Bedingfield performed a new song for the president as well, the similarly-titled "Forward." You can see that video below Wonder's.
