The Playlist: Top 10 Workout Tunes for May 2019

There’s no rhyme or reason for what landed at the top of the charts, but all have beats to keep you running.

If there’s a trend at work in this month’s top 10 list, it’s the lack of a trend. The picks are all over the place. So, if you’re looking for a few songs—or a full mix—that’ll get you out of a rut, we’ve got you covered.

On the rock front, you’ll find new tunes from the U.K.’s Foals and Coachella headliners Tame Impala. Moving on to rap, you’ve got a collaboration featuring Macklemore and abundant sass from Iggy Azalea. From the club scene, there are new anthems from ’90s heroes The Chemical Brothers and a new single from Calvin Harris. Perhaps hardest to classify is a joint venture from Khalid and John Mayer.
