10 Missy Elliott Songs You NEED in Your Workout Playlist!!

Trying to figure out how to make your workout playlists pop? Today I’ve got 10 Amazing Missy Elliott Songs you must have on your workout playlist!

Working out with music is an absolute necessity. If I know I’m having a low energy day I think about what playlist I can make to make this workout a bit more bearable. My music selections usually depend on what would make me dance at a party–if I’m lifting it would be what kind of rap makes me bop my head the hardest, or somedays it’s a combination of the two.

There is one artist that I realize keeps popping up on pretty much all my playlists. The amazing, untouchable Missy Elliott. Although she has a catalog that is amazing and way more than just these 10 songs, these are my favorite for workouts.

When I first saw the “I can’t stand the rain” video of Missy in a garbage bag, I was completely blown away. I remember even as a kid, just being so enthralled with the video because it was SO DIFFERENT. The sound was different, the visuals were brand new and honestly at that moment Missy changed the game.

Since that debut album (which I know every word of by the way), she has released so many hits and club bangers! Somehow whenever I hear “Lose Control”, I want to do just that on the dance floor! She is such an icon when it comes to great beats and it makes for a fantastic Missy Elliott workout playlist.

Amazing! This post got me all in my feels. I LOVE Missy. And yes she is definitely perfect for any workout playlist. You got me thinking about slipping one of these songs into a Zumba class. Nothing is better than some ole school tunes.

One song that I absolutely love to work out to is Mary J Blige – “Just Fine.” Keri Hilson “Pretty Girl Rock”, and Beyonce “End of Time” are also in heavy rotation in my work out play list

And of course, being the Trini American that I am, I can never say no to soca, calypso, or reggae.
