Top 10 Songs For April 2018
Variety is at the heart of this month’s top 10 list. While it’s nice to hear songs from across the musical spectrum, there’s a practical benefit to a playlist covering an array of tempos, as well. Specifically, the latter makes it easier to find something that complements each stage of your exercise routine. With all this in mind, you’re in luck—as this month’s top tunes are eclectic in both regards.
The list kicks off with a Prince-inspired track from Janelle Monáe and closes out with a Top 40 single from Hailee Steinfeld. In the middle, you’ll find guitar heroics from Jack White and an uptempo track from Bastille. Finally, there’s rustic pop from Almond&Olive and a collaboration between Kendrick Lamar and SZA from the Black Panther soundtrack.
Whether you’re looking for rap warm-up tracks (like a viral hit from Drake) or a rock song that’s twice as fast (from Los Angeles’ Bad Suns)–the mix below runs the gamut. Given the range of material at your disposal, you’ve got all the inspiration you need to get in motion. When you’re ready to make a move, here’s the full list—according to the votes logged on the workout music site Run Hundred.
