The following is from a release:
A new analysis of users’ monthly Spotify playlists has revealed which tracks are best for getting hyped for the gym again in January – with Acraze’s “Do It To It” on top.
The research, conducted by Fitness Volt, analysed over 9,353 tracks from Spotify’s most popular January gym and January workout playlists to determine which songs feature most – creating the ultimate back-to-gym playlist for the new year.
Acraze’s “Do It To It” – featuring girl group Cherish – is the best-suited track, appearing in seven of the playlists analyzed. With a tempo of 125 BPM, the song is ideal for cardio.
Next up was Eminem’s “Till I Collapse,” also appearing on seven playlists, which would work well for a high-intensity workout thanks to its higher BPM of 171. The third-most popular track was The Chainsmoker’s “Closer”, which appeared in six workout playlists.
It makes sense that high-tempo songs appear frequently in January playlists, given many people are now getting back to their usual workout routines and will be trying to hype themselves up again after the festive break.
Some artists also appear more frequently in gym playlists than others; Lizzo is amongst the most popular, with featured tracks including Fitness, Water Me, Grrls and Truth Hurts.
Other artists that appear numerous times across the analysed playlists were Kanye West, Big Sean, Flo Rida, Rihanna and Tiesto.
