This month's top workout songs include a perfect blend of comebacks and collaborations. In the mix below, rockers Kings of Leon return to the charts with a new single and Lady Gaga returns to her pop roots -- following her jazz duets album with Tony Bennett. Elsewhere on the comeback front, you'll find Sting leading an uptempo tune that hearkens back to the sound of his work with The Police.

On the collaborative front, you'll find recent hits -- like the pop/rap track featuring Sia and Kendrick Lamar or a song that topped Billboard's Latin chart from Enrique Iglesias and Wisin. Additionally, there are after-the-fact collaborations -- in the form of dance remixes of rock songs from Fitz & The Tantrums and Blink-182. Throughout playlist below, you'll find plenty of variety as new and veteran acts from different genres duke it out -- occasionally in the course of a single song.
