It’s way easier to enjoy your workout when you’re sweating to your favorite tunes.
Spotify crunched the numbers and found that Eminem’s “Till I Collapse” is the number-one workout song of all time. At number-two is another Eminem record, “Lose Yourself.” Kanye West has the next two spots, with “Stronger” and “Power.” And Macklemore and Ryan Lewis round out the Top 5 with “Can’t Hold Us.”
If you break things down by gender, you’ll see that the fellas like to listen to “‘Till I Collapse” in the gym, while the ladies would rather sweat it out to “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.
When you factor listeners’ ages in, the data tells a different story. Eminem’s “‘Till I Collapse” is a favorite for the 13- to 35-year-old set, while 36- to 54-year-olds prefer “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor. Meanwhile, Spotify’s oldest users are “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor.
2018’s trends tell a slightly different story. “God’s Plan” by Drake is at number-one, with Cardi B‘s “I Like It” and Eminem’s “‘Till I Collapse” at two and three. Drizzy pops back up at number-four with “Nice for What.” Rounding out the Top 5 is “One Kiss” by Dua Lipa.
