Miley Cyrus‘s sound changed a lot over the years, as did her style, hair, and love interests. There were her pop-meets-occasional-hints-of-hidden-angst days during Hannah Montana (anyone else dance wildly around their bedroom to “7 Things” and “Fly on the Wall”?!). Then came the punk pixie-cut, “Wrecking Ball,” twerking with your tongue out Bangerz era followed by experimental albums that spanned many genres. Most recently, she’s graced us with breakup ballads (“Slide Away”) and powerhouse hits about taking charge as females and fighting the patriarchy (“Mother’s Daughter”). She’s an ever-changing woman, and she’s here to stay.
Miley, now 27 and well beyond her Disney Channel years, is the perfect example of someone unapologetically coming into her own. Many of her past and present hits, no matter what the genre, make you want to move. Ahead, check out those songs that are great for keeping your feet pounding the treadmill and weights lifted off the ground. You’ll find the full Spotify playlist as well as a compilation of the songs via YouTube.
Note: you’ll be able to pick and choose songs on your phone freely with Spotify Premium (I’m currently on a three-month free trial), instead of having a skip limit. The app, though, is free regardless, and you can even use your computer or laptop. Conquer your sweat session with a little help from coach Cyrus — and picture yourself, mid “Can’t Be Tamed” music video, breaking out of your bird cage. Go ahead, we’ll join you.
