Dance tracks dominate the proceedings in our monthly workout music recap. While that sounds like the introduction to one-dimensional playlist, the tracks approach the genre from different avenues. Plus, there are a handful of pop singles mixing things up along the way.
The first batch of dance tracks are the remixes--where Top 40 favorites like The Weeknd and clubland stars like Flume both find their recent hits reimagined. Elsewhere, you'll find David Guetta and Nevada each leading collaborative covers of a pair of '90s, R&B singles. Finally, you've got straightforward pop tunes including a rousing send off to past loves from Little Mix and a contribution to the Sing soundtrack featuring Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande.
On the surface, it might appear that the common denominator at work here is a steady dance/pop vibe. But, there's a bit more variety at work than you might expect. Accordingly, the list's true consistency lies in its lively, uncomplicated beats--which will make for excellent motivation on your next run.
