“Music can be a great motivator for working out, so long as it’s the right music,” says Spotify’s Trends Expert Shanon Cook. “Year after year, our listeners have made Eminem’s ‘Till I Collapse’ the most popular track to get sweaty to, so it’s pretty clear a message of endurance resonates with them.”

Spotify has been tracking users as they sweat, releasing an inside look at global workout habits and the playlists we turn to keep us going as we try to make gains. It turns out that Drake, Kanye West, and Eminem are the motivational vocalists of choice to keep gym denizens pumped up as they pump iron (or run, or bike, or do anything workout-related). It looks like a driving beat and no-nonsense lyrics help propel listeners to keep their heart rates up.
