As we move further into the new year, options on the workout music front are growing more collaborative. More than half of this month’s picks involve folks working together—often from different ends of the musical spectrum. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a few of the standouts below.

Beginning with the straightforward collaborations, you’ll find Pitbull working with Rhea and Sam Smith working with Normani—each making the kind of music you generally associate with the first member of each pairing. Next up, you’ll find more eclectic picks, such as Nicki Minaj on a Spanish track and Calvin Harris making somber pop with Rag’n’Bone Man. Finally, there are remixes in which Skrillex and Dillon Francis perform post-production collaborations, with Travis Scott and Cardi B, respectively.

As for the solo cuts, this playlist features a bit of melodic boasting from Post Malone and a song from J Balvin that makes him the only person to make two appearances on this month’s list. Finally, there’s a new tune from The Raconteurs—and while one could argue that this track belongs with the other solo efforts, it can also pass for a collaboration insofar as the band is a supergroup of sorts.

Beyond the number of folks involved in this crop of exercise jams, the most interesting aspect is the variety on display. Even if you can’t find a tune by someone for whom you care, there’s likely a genre here that you’ll enjoy. With that in mind, survey the list below to see if anything moves you, then get moving.

Travis Scott – SICKO MODE (Skrillex Remix) – 78 BPM

Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin – I Like It (Dillon Francis Remix) – 75 BPM

J Balvin – Reggaeton – 88 BPM

Post Malone – Wow. – 100 BPM

The Raconteurs – Sunday Driver – 124 BPM

Sam Smith & Normani – Dancing With A Stranger – 103 BPM

Calvin Harris & Rag’n’Bone Man – Giant – 122 BPM

Pitbull & Rhea – Ocean to Ocean – 105 BPM

Gesaffelstein & The Weeknd – Lost in the Fire – 101 BPM
