Early 2000’s Hits You Need On Your Workout Playlist

My entire workout playlist is compiled of “throwbacks” and I thought it would be fun to share some fun song recommendations, that you might have let slip your mind. I should note, this list is not limited to the gym atmosphere, it’s also great for just jamming out, so get out your headphones! Also this is no particular order, I’m a fan of all these suggestions.

1 . Black Eyed Peas

“Imma Be”, “Don’t Stop the Party”, and “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” are probably some of my top Black Eyed Peas Songs when it comes to “throwbacks”.

2 . Timbaland

“THE WAY I ARE”! Love this one! And, of course, “Promiscuous” with Nelly Furtado!

3. Far East Movement

“Like a G-6” was a bop back in grade eight and it still holds up today!

4. Akon

“Smack That”

5. Ray J

“Sexy Can I” listen to this song on repeat?

6. Rihanna

“S&M”, “Rude Boy”, “Only Girl”, “What’s My Name”, “SOS”, to name five. Old Rihanna songs are a go-to.

7. Usher

“Yeah!” Need I say anything else?

8. Britney Spears

“I Wanna Go”, “Womanizer”, “Toxic”.

9. Maroon 5

“Moves Like Jagger”

10. Flo Rida


11. Katy Perry


12. Salt-N-Pepa

“Shoop” is good for a post-workout cool down!

13. T- Pain

“Low” Shawty got low! & “Buy U A Drank”

14. Pitbull

“Hotel Room”

15. David Guetta

“Where Them Girls At” & “Sexy Bitch”

16. J-kwon


17. Chingy

“Right Thurr” talk about a great beat!


“Blah Blah Blah” & “Backstabber”. Pretty much her entire “Animal” album takes me back in time, she was my grade eight pop idol.

19. Sean Kingston

“Take You there” 

20. Soulja Boy

“Kiss Me Thru the Phone”

21. Young Money


22. Justin Timberlake

“Sexy Back”

If you’re interested in these song suggestions, I have also put together a YouTube playlist for your convenience!
