Even more than two decades after its release, the song still gets listeners pumped and motivated to keep going till their last breath.

2. Power by Kanye West
Dubbed one of Kanye West’s best singles in years, Power will definitely get your legs moving and your heart throbbing. While the title says it all, Kanye described the tracks as “superhero theme music” whose stylistic hip-hop beats coupled with an unadulterated/raw attitude will fuel your adrenaline on the mellowest of days. Power is bold and unabashed just like Kanye, and you can’t go wrong with it for your intense workout sessions.

8. Stronger by Kanye West
Making another entry in Spotify’s best exercise music list is Kanye West, with his edgy 2007 track Stronger. Despite facing flack for being a brazen copy of Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, West’s track enjoys massive popularity to date. Its infectious chorus, amazing beats, blazing synthesisers, and the overall immaculate production that Kanye is best known for, make Stronger a blessing to listen to!
9. Blinding Lights by The Weeknd
If there was an exclusive ‘Weeknd workout playlist’, Blinding Lights would inevitably sit at the top. Spotify’s most streamed song of all time, Blinding Lights boasts a unique 80s synth and dramatic beats that instil a euphoric feeling like no other.

10. Goosebumps by HMVE
Living up to its name, Goosebumps will send shivers down your spine with its banger beats.
