The most constant thing in all of our new year's resolutions is to re-dedicate ourselevs to the gym. Yes, we're all guilty as charged... for the first two week of the year, I look like a mobile tap, just sweating my life away, but everytime I (literally) see February approaching, I stop being consistent and just forget about my plans on workout for the year. This year, however, thanks to Spotify, it seems like I'm going to be LIVING in the gym.
With more than 54 million workout-focused playlists on Spotify, they decided to take a closer look at workout trends, and now, they're sharing 2020 fitness predictions based on current listening habits globally. I feel like I'm now part of an inner circle #beastmode. Spotify made some key highlight from their research base.
According to their data, listeners have created more running playlists than any other workout type. Yoga follows running in popularity.
Fun Fact: Sweden might be the world’s most zen nation based on the high number of meditation and yoga playlists Spotify listeners have created.
They also made some 2020 predictions on Self-care, because that’s obviously everyone’s motto in 2020. Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next”, Lizzo’s “Good as Hell” and Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself” are popular female empowerment anthems on people’s “self-care” playlists.
And when we asked what songs listeners sweat to? According to Spotify, Eminem’s “'Till I Collapse” is the most-streamed track in workout playlists, globally at the moment. Ed Sheeran’s “I Don't Care” with Justin Bieber is the second most-streamed workout song globally and the first in the UAE, followed by, “If I Can’t Have You” by Shawn Mendes and “Beautiful People” by Ed Sheeran and Khalid are the songs that almost everyone breaks a sweat to…interesting.
