New York, NY – Anyone looking to make good use of that New Year’s resolution gym membership may want to give Eminem’s 2002 diamond-certified album The Eminem Show a revisit.

According to a new Spotify study, the popular album cut “Till I Collapse” (featuring the late Nate Dogg) is the top global song of all time for exercising and working out — a distinction its held for three years straight. (His Academy Award-winning “Lose Yourself” from the 8 Mile Soundtrack ranks as No. 2.)

The record was also the third leading workout anthem for 2018, right behind new age classics from Drake (“God’s Plan”) and Cardi B (“I Like It”). As of press time, Slim Shady maintains his place as the highest-selling rapper ever, with more than 100 million sales worldwide.


Whereas “Till I Collapse” dominated the men and overall numbers, female exercisers leaned towards Mark Ronson’s and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” for their favorite gym song. Another interesting stat includes the rise of cryotherapy/ice baths as the trendiest new workout theme and naturally, Vanilla Ice’s “Ice, Ice, Baby” was the preferred backdrop music when it came to freezing those muscles.
