With summer nearly upon us, there's a mess of new music bumping in a gym near you. The singles from Usher and Linkin Park's new albums are out now—along with Pitbull's contribution to the Men in Black III soundtrack. Also, on the movie tip, Kelly Clarkson's “Stronger” returns to the top 10—albeit in a dark, retro remix that works the American Idol veteran into a groove straight out of the Scarface or Drive soundtrack. Lastly, the top 10 is rounded out by trio of collaborations wherein Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, and Cee Lo paired up with Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B., and Slaughterhouse.

Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred--the web's most popular site for workout music.
