These ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‡ Artists ๐ŸŽค Should Be ๐Ÿ‘Œ on Your Gym ๐Ÿ’ช Playlist ๐ŸŽง ...

There are definitely some artists that should be on your gym playlist. Letโ€™s be honest, most of us HATE working out! If we had the choice of either watching โ€œThis is Usโ€ while devouring a bag of crunchy Flaminโ€™ Hot Cheetos or going to the gym to sweat like an explorer in an African jungle, we would choose the first choice. However, working out is essential to staying healthy and in shape so we got to push our asses to the gym.

Though working out can sometimes feel like extreme torture, it can be fun if you have the right workout playlist.

Your workout playlist is crucial to your workout; it is literally the heart and soul of it. Slow jams and R&B will not get you through conquering that devil in machine form called โ€œthe stair-master.โ€ However, if listening to Usherโ€™s โ€œConfessionsโ€ helps you run like Florence Griffith Joyner on the treadmill, then you go girl!

To me, your work out playlist needs to hype you up and make you feel invincible like Beyoncรฉ in her โ€œLemonadeโ€ short film.

So, here are some of my suggestions for artists that should be on your gym playlist.

1. Kanye West

(Your reaction) Thank you!

There is no denying that Yeโ€™s songs and beats go hard AF! From โ€œLost in the Woodsโ€ and โ€œPowerโ€ to โ€œBlack Skinhead,โ€ Kanye knows how to amp anybody up for the simple fact he himself is always amped up. You can also pick any song from his and Jay-Zโ€™s โ€œWatch the Throneโ€ album to feel help motivate you. He's one of the best artists that should be on your gym playlist.

DMX was the man back in the day and his songs are forever classics. โ€œX Gonโ€™ Give it to Ya,โ€ โ€œWhere the Hood At,โ€ and โ€œParty Upโ€ are just a few of his legendary hits that are some straight bangers! I know for me personally, when Iโ€™m on the elliptical, his songs push me to go as fast as a man whoโ€™s running from paying his child support.

Obviously, Jayโ€™s latest โ€œ4:44โ€ album is not for the gym, but his past works most certainly are. โ€œRoc Boys,โ€ โ€œ99 Problems,โ€ and โ€œDirt Off Your Shouldersโ€ all have hardcore beats that can help keep you amped up during your workouts.

4. Beyoncรฉ

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Of course I have to include โ€œQueen Bโ€ in the workout playlist. Beyoncรฉ definitely has the extensive catalog of songs that can empower anyone in the gym. โ€œGet Me Bodied,โ€ โ€œRun the World,โ€ โ€œCountdown,โ€ and โ€œ7/11โ€ are a mere few of Queen Bโ€™s fast-paced songs that will make you feel like a conqueror of the gym.

5. Kendrick Lamar

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Kendrickโ€™s last album โ€œDamnโ€, possesses songs like โ€œDNAโ€ and the smash hit โ€œHumbleโ€ that should without a doubt be on everyoneโ€™s workout playlist. His incredible producing skills of the โ€œBlack Pantherโ€ album, should also have you add the entire album to your playlist cause each song on there is LIT.

6. DJ Khaled

(Your reaction) Thank you!

DJ Khaledโ€™s whole energy and vibe is all about positivity and being hype so, of course, his songs would reflect that as well. A few of his hits such as โ€œAll I Do is Win,โ€ โ€œI Got the Keys,โ€ and โ€œOn Everythingโ€ are the definition of HYPE and will have you feeling like you could box with a jaguar. Ok, maybe thatโ€™s a stretch.

Get these tunes blasting and go have a beast-mode workout!
