SUMMER ’17 RUN JAMS

RYU Team / Jun 30, 2017

Summer officially started on June 20th, and for those who run there’s nothing better than hitting a bit of steamy pavement in with a dope workout playlist. Here are our top 15 picks for your Summer ‘17 workout playlist.

workout-playlist-1
  1. STARLEY – CALL ON ME (RYAN RIBACK REMIX)

    105 bpm of pure bliss, if you ask us.

  2. DILLON FRANCIS – HURRICANE (FT. LILY ELISE)

    This song didn’t get the recognition it deserved when it was released so we’re putting it on this list. When the beat drops, hit the gas pedal.

  3. RALPH FELIX & SDJM – THE HEAT (I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY)

    Throw down a dance cover of an already dance-worthy song and you’ve got a recipe for the perfect run.

  4. JONAS BLUE – MAMA (FT. WILLIAM SINGE)

    We’re not really sure who Jonas Blue is but we’re down with this. (FYI, Jonas Blue was the DJ who brought you that sick cover of Fast Car by Tracy Chapman a couple years ago.)

  5. BRITNEY SPEARS – WORK B**CH

    We don’t care who you are, this song makes anyone work.

  6. MURA MASA – 1 NIGHT (FT. CHARLIE XCX)

    This featured artist helped you crash your car into a bridge and watch it burn a few summers ago. Now she’s helping you run. Get to it.

  7. ASTRID S – BREATHE

    Warning: this song may take your breath away.

  8. ZEDD, ALESSIA CARA – STAY

    Anything Zedd touches is gold. This is no exception.

  9. JAX JONES – INSTRUCTION (FT. DEMI LOVATO, STEFFLON DON)

    Demi Lovato, Stefflon Don, and Jax Jones team up to turn your average run into a run-rave.

  10. LUIS FONZI & DADDY YANKEEE – DESPACITO (FT. JUSTIN BIEBER)

    If you speak Spanish, you’ll either love or hate this one. Either way, this song won’t have you running ‘despacito’ at all. Don’t let your madre listen to this one though.

  11. DAVID GUETTA – 2U (FT. JUSTIN BIEBER)

    This is his second appearance on this playlist but let’s just be clear that he is the featured artist on both tracks. Also, David Guetta.

  12. MAJOR LAZER – RUN UP (FEAT. PARTYNEXTDOOR & NICKI MINAJ)

    Major Lazer is amazing, and Nicki Minaj is paying tuition for her fans so let’s at least support them by listening to this song.

  13. DUKE DUMONT X GORGON CITY – REAL LIFE (FT. NAATIONS)

    Try not to throw your arms in the air as you run.

  14. CALVIN HARRIS & RIHANNA – WE FOUND LOVE

    Alright, we know this one’s a little old but does the hair on the back of your neck not stand up when you hear this?

  15. MAGGIE LINDEMANN – PRETTY GIRL

    This song just reaches right through your chest, grabs your heart, and punches.
