You’re on a run. That song comes on. You smile. You hit repeat. You hit repeat again. You get home. You jump in the shower. You play the song. You get out of the shower. You hit repeat. Your hands are wet. You ruin your phone. You don’t care. This is the song of summer.

Sick of tangled wires and earbuds that fall out? There’s a better way to listen to music while you workout. UA Headphones Wireless make sure you never miss a beat.
Last year, it was Cheerleader by Omi … or maybe Bad Blood by Taylor Swift … or maybe See You Again by Wiz Khalifa.

Make a prediction! What’s going to be the workout song of summer?
We expected debate. We had moderators on call. We thought this would “break the Internet” or “go viral.” It didn’t.
Heather R nominated a song. Tina E agreed. Cindy P agreed. Hui Y agreed. Everyone agreed. Kiley W commented: “As soon as I read this that’s the first song in my head lol.”
So without further ado, here is: The MyFitnessPal Workout Song of Summer
There’s still a lot of summer left, though – so let us know in the comments if you’ve got another pick!
