The Top 10 Workout Songs for April 2016

Gym Workout

Ladies rule the gym this month, with females out front on all but three of the month's top tunes.

The most anticipated songs of the month are the new singles from Sia and Meghan Trainor. Collaborations also proved popular, with Zara Larsson and Fifth Harmony teaming up with MNEK and Ty Dolla $ign, respectively. Lastly, from the guys, you'll find the latest from Pitbull, a remix from Coldplay, and a fast track from St. Lucia.

In short, what seems like a homogeneous playlist on the surface turns out to be a remarkably fluid mix of dance, pop, rap, and rock on further inspection. Moreover, it's spring when pop's jauntiness returns after months of hibernation. So, it's a great time of year for buoyant beats and an even better time to get outdoors.
