Longtime runner Ellie Kemper charms our socks (and running shoes!) off.
Variety is key when compiling a workout playlist. Fortunately, for those in the mood to move, this month’s top workout tracks come by their eclecticism naturally. So, rather than trying to encapsulate all of that in an overview, we’ll consider the highlights individually.
The big winners of the month are rappers Nicki Minaj and Quavo—both of whom make two appearances this month. (The latter, for what it’s worth, appears once on his own and again as 1/3 of Migos.) Rock acts are also out in force—with Imagine Dragons, Green Day and Fall Out Boy each turning up. Finally, there are dance hits like Afrojack and company’s “Another Life” and a remix of The Chainsmokers and Coldplay collaboration “Something Just Like This.”
When you consider the stream of hits that make their way onto the charts and into gym mixes, it’s rare to have a batch that’s this generous with the genres. So, pick your favorites or play it in full, but don’t let it go to waste. Here’s the full list—according to the votes logged on workout music site Run Hundred.
