Your Grammy Awards–Inspired Workout Playlist


This year's Grammy Awards nominees were just announced. And as always, they're the year's hottest artists, like Meghan Trainor, Drake, Alabama Shakes, and Justin Bieber.

Kendrick Lamar was the top hitter with 11 nominations. Taylor Swift and The Weeknd both earned seven (including Album of the Year), and rap queen Nicki Minaj is in the running for Best Rap Album. Performances of "Sugar" by Maroon 5 and "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars are up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. So basically, all your favorite jams of 2015.

There's no better way to celebrate than to crush a workout in their honor. This playlist mixes the best upbeat tracks from this year's nominees so you can run, lift, stretch, and HIIT play as long as you desire. Unfortunately, Swift is still too cool for Spotify, so she's missing from this kick-ass roundup. If you need to burn off some anger toward an ex and wish "Bad Blood" would come on, just wait for Elle King's "Ex's & Oh's" and Tori Kelly's "Should've Been Us."

This playlist can carry you through your New Year's workout resolution until the winners are announced at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards on February 15, 2016. Listen below now, then subscribe to the playlist on Spotify to play anywhere, anytime.
