If your New Year's resolution involves getting (or staying) in shape, this month's top 10 songs provide a variety of ways to help you make good on your word. Moreover, the list provides an excellent link between this year and last, as it's evenly split between remixes of 2015 hits and new tracks for 2016.
On the remix front, you'll find updated versions of chart favorites from Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd. In the new music department, Twenty One Pilots are the only band to make the cut, Zara Larsson conjures the vibe of an early Rihanna track, and David Guetta collaborates with Sia and Fetty Wap. In with the fresh and familiar tracks, you'll find two tunes that could fit in either category: one from Sigala (which borrows its hook from a Jackson 5 smash) and one from Diplo and Sleepy Tom (which uses elements of Jade's 1992 hit “Don't Walk Away).
In the same way the playlist bridges the musical past and the present, it can also serve as a bridge between the person you were in 2015 and the person you resolved to become in 2016.
