A bomb playlist can turn a party from whack to lit or a workout from blah to bangin'. So best believe that we're super serious about the tunes we choose on a daily basis. When we listen to music, our brains release dopamine, which makes us feel good, rather than bored or overwhelmed by the activity we're doing. If you're looking for the perfect distraction during a super tough workout or you're in charge of sound at your besties birthday party, here are 5 tracks to play on repeat:
1. "Finesse" by Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B
“Finesse” has been dope since Bruno Mars included it in the release of his multi-platinum album, 24K Magic. His creativity flourished once again with the remix featuring Cardi B and a nod to the sketch comedy classic, In Living Color.
2. "1000" by N.E.R.D. ft. Future
"1000" is bound to help you keep a steady pace of high knees for at least 30 seconds while the visual will open your mind and eyes to the hatred in the world. This track is a reminder to do better in the gym as well as in our society.
3. "Mi Gente" by J Balvin ft. Beyoncé
Beyoncé. Need we say more...
4. "No Limit" - G Eazy ft. A$AP Rocky, Cardi B, French Montana, Juicy J, Belly (NSFW)
When a moment of weakness, self-doubt, and defeat takes over your workout, press play on this hit and watch your workout reach new heights.
5. "Say A" by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie
Not only does the Queens rapper have a growing catalog of hits, but his new year’s resolution to work with a slew of different stars, including Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, SZA, Future, Rihanna, Demi Lovato, Akon, Bad Bunny, Adele, Zendaya, and Chance the Rapper, has us rooting for him every step of the way.
