1. Five More Hours
If your looking for a fun, loud and energetic song, this is it! “Five More Hours” by Deorro and Chris Brown, was released in 2015, yet is still a great song to workout or party to. This song is at the top of my workout playlist on Spotify and you should add it too!
2. Do You Think About Me
Do you love a perfect beat drop? Well, “Do You Think About Me” by Captain Cuts and Zookëper will have you dancing at the gym! Released in 2018, this vibrant song will make you feel on top of the world! My friends and I love jamming out to this song in the car or while going on runs in the neighborhood.
Close your eyes and listen to “Daylight” by One True God and TELYKast. The lively beat will make you feel as if you’re out in the city on a summer night with your bff’s! This newly released song will get you in the mood to workout and never stop! Don’t forget to add this exciting song to your playlist!
4. Like A G6
Although “Like A G6” by Far East Movement was released ten years ago, it is still an amazing fast paced song, that will have you running all around the block. This song has never left my playlist and is one of those songs you’ll never get tired of! Repeated beat drops throughout the song will have you breaking a sweat by the end of your workout!
5. South of the Border
Looking for a slower yet thrilling song? “South of the Border” by Ed Sheeran, Cardi B, Camila Cabello, and Cheat Codes is perfect for you! Make sure you listen to the Cheat Codes remix of this song for a faster pace! I personally love pop music and listen to this song ALL THE TIME when stretching. Also, who doesn’t love Cardi B? Her feature in this song adds in something unique and fun if you’re into her style of music!
In March, “Roses” by Saint Jhn was my favorite song to work-out to! Although it was released in 2016, it recently grew popular on the app TikTok, which is where I first heard it. The rhythm moves from fast to slow quickly and will keep you on your toes! It’s a fun and energetic song, making it a MUST on your playlist!
7. You Make Me Feel...
Released in 2011, “You Make Me Feel...” by Cobra Starship, may be a bit old but will never be too old to listen to. I’ve come to find that the older songs are always the best ones! This song starts off with a slower beat but quickly moves into a loud and energetic chorus. Whenever I listen to this song I feel productive and motivated which is why it’s best to listen to when working out!
