Spotify Reveals The Most Popular Workout Track Of 2017


The right workout playlist can be an invaluable ally in making the time you spend pumping iron or pounding the pavements more enjoyable, so it’s worth freshening up your personal exercise soundtrack regularly. If you’re short on ideas of what to listen to this January, then look no further than Spotify’s round-up of the most popular workout music among its worldwide audience.

In creating more than 25 million workout playlists on the music streaming service, the people have spoken, and with one voice they have shouted “Eminem”. For the second year in the row “’Till I Collapse”, has topped Spotify’s global chart of most popular workout tracks, and the American rapper also grabbed third spot in the rankings with “Lose Yourself”.

Providing the filling in this Eminem sandwich is another American rapper – Post Malone – with his song “rockstar”. Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE” and Axwell / Ingrosso’s “More Than You Know” round out the top five.

However, Eminem did not claim top spot in the UK – that honour went to MK’s “17”. Post Malone’s effort was also popular in the UK, hitting third in the workout charts, with Avicii’s “Lonely Together” fourth and Jax Jones’s “You Don’t Know Me” fifth.

You can see the full global and UK rankings below, and if you’re on the hunt for a ready-made workout playlist Spotify has also given the rankings of its most popular options, a chart topped by its “Beast Mode” playlist.
