Bozoma St. John Is The Coolest Person To Ever Go Onstage At An Apple Event

Put her in charge of everything, please.

Posted on

Bozoma Saint John, the head of global consumer marketing for Apple Music and iTunes, is the actual coolest person ever.

Before Apple, she was an executive at Pepsi, where she also reportedly was the one who talked Beyoncé into performing at the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show.

Before Apple, she was an executive at Pepsi, where she also reportedly was the one who talked Beyoncé into performing at the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show.

So when Saint John made her Apple event debut at Monday's Worldwide Developers' Conference, everyone agreed that her presence was a welcome change to Apple's usual lineup of presenters: mostly middle-aged white men.

Everyone immediately fell in love with her.

I am in love with Bozoma Saint John, please have her do every WWDC Keynote

Can someone please bring back Bozoma?

But the absolute best part was when Saint John played "Rapper's Delight" to an audience full of nerdy engineers... and tried to get them to rap along.

...And it was super awkward.

the wwdc sugarhill gang moment is the most embarrassed ive ever been in my entire life

bozoma saint john is trying to get a room of developers to rap to a song they are probably hearing for the first time ever

Given Apple's usual showcase of dad moves, Saint John was the best dancer the company has ever put on the stage.

Apple

MORE BOZOMA, PLEASE.

Glory and honor and praise to the Most High. I'm ready. #Apple #WWDC #AppleMusic #AppleNews
