The Ultimate Playlist for Your Resolution
You’re still exercising, but bored of Spotify’s playlists. We’ve got you covered.
By Nicole McCambridge
Congratulations! It’s three weeks into the new year and you haven’t given up on your fitness resolution yet. Pat yourself on the back and enjoy this playlist during your next workout.
Spotify has an abundance of playlists for exercising, but none of them really celebrate the year that passed or the year ahead. This collection is only songs that were released in 2017/18. They have controversy, love and most importantly, the rhythm that can move you from your bed to the treadmill.
1. Filthy- Justin Timberlake
This song takes some getting used to but once you listen a few times, you’ll be exercising like a creepy, futuristic robot.
2. Boom Boom- Red One ft. Daddy Yankee and French Montana
While Daddy Yankee has been taking it slow recently, and best known these days for Despacito,, this reggaeton king has been around for ages, and has a lot of great music that’s normally used for working out in the club, but has catchy beats, perfect for exercise.
3. Humble- Kendrick Lamar
Honestly, there is no song that makes me more pumped. Remember to be humble when you have your fantasy frame.
4. Best Friend- Sofi Tucker
5. Lonely Together- Avicci Ft Rita Ora, Jaded Remix
6. Work Your Body- Funkerman, Cooperated Souls
7. Believer- Imagine Dragons
8. Danger- Migos ft. Marshmello
9. Finesse- Bruno Mars and Cardi B
Cardi B’s confidence will have you bragging to everyone how much muscle you’ve gained. Bruno Mars makes you feel good when attaching himself to this.
10. ESP- N.E.R.D
“You’ve got energy but you ain’t gonna use it.” Prove N.E.R.D wrong by moving along with the fantastic beat.
11. Mi Gente- J. Balvin, Willy William
12. New Rules- Dua Lipa
This song is 2 for 1 if your other New Year’s resolution is to stay away from your ex.
13. Heat- Kelly Clarkson
14. Power- Hardwell, KSHMR
15. Best 4 U- Maroon 5
16. Shining- Dj Khaled, Beyonce, Jay-Z
17. The Champion- Carrie Underwood ft. Ludacris
Underwood had a difficult end to 2017, when a fall outside her home left her needing a wrist brace and about 40 stitches in her face, according to E Online . The country singer didn’t let this stop her. Just, this week she released a new song for the Super Bowl with rapper Ludacris. It’s a fitting song for exercise with the lyrics, “I am invincible, unbreakable, unstoppable.”
18. Feel it Still- Portugal, The Man
19. Freedom- Pitbull
20. Devil In Me- Halsey
21. Shape Of You- Ed Sheeran
These next songs are a little slower than the rest but still keep a steady beat. Perfect for cooling down.
22. Never Be The Same- Camilla Cabello
23. Sorry Not Sorry- Demi Lovato
24. Cycle- Methal, X-Embassadors
I found this song on Spotify’s “I’m With The Banned” playlist. It’s a collection of songs from musicians that live in the countries that feature on President Trump’s immigration ban. Methal is from Yemen, and she began playing music in 2011 after the Arab Spring began, according to her website.
25. I Need A Painkiller – Armand Van Helden Vs. Butter Rush
Self explanatory. Enjoy the workout!
