One can pick any number of songs from Beyonce’s discography to use for a workout, but we’ve opted for ‘Run the World (Girls)’ for that extra push you’ll need. Off of the album ‘4,’ ‘Run the World (Girls)’ is hard to categorize into any one genre. A fusion of pop, R&B, hip-hop and dancehall, the track is known for Queen Bee’s theme of “girl power” and repeats the phrase, “Who run the world? Girls!” over and over.
1. “Heal the World” by Michael Jackson
The King of Pop used his ultimate status to bring our attention to the needs of its lesser-known citizens. In this smooth, inspiring song, he encourages all of us to do our part to make the world a better place, by taking care of its resources and its citizens.
