The 10 Best Songs To Add To Your December 2018 Workout Playlist

Run Hundred presents its list of the top 10 workout songs of December 2018.

December 2018’s Top 10

This month’s top running songs come almost exclusively from the worlds of pop and dance. At a glance, this might seem too homogenous—but just under the surface, you’ll find a range of other sounds from which the mix profits immeasurably.

Starting with the straightforward dance numbers, you’ll find raucous rhythms from The Prodigy, a slow burner from The Chainsmokers and a track from festival favorites Benny Blanco and Calvin Harris. Mixing things up a bit, there’s a song pairing the talents of Steve Aoki and Blink-182 and two tracks featuring Nicki Minaj—one of which gains a bit of workout credibility from its inclusion on the Creed II soundtrack.

If you’re not sure where to start, consider “Keep Reachin’,” as it draws from several genres at once and benefits from the combined star power of Thriller producer Quincy Jones, “Uptown Funk” hitmaker Mark Ronson and rhythm and blues siren Chaka Khan. The list boasts enough big beats and huge hooks to get you (and keep you) in motion.
