Yes, the reason why your “mile time” might be slower could be because you have Drake on your playlist. According to a new study, Drake is amongst the worst to listen to while running compared to other artists.
Sportwear brand Pour Moi shared a new study that detailed the relationship between music and work-out performance.
Beyoncé had the highest ranking on the list. Runners who listened to Bey cut their running time by two minutes and 45 seconds. Meanwhile, those who listen to Drake lagged behind by 6%. The study shows that listening to Drake could add nearly 15 extra minutes to their run-time.
Drizzy is not the only artist that is dragging runners down: BTS, Nicki Minaj, Doja Cat, and Katy Perry are also on the list.
Joining Beyoncé’s winning team in enhancing runner’s times are Harry Styles, Britney Spears, Cardi B, Travis Scott, Kanye West, Rihanna, and more.
