Sometimes the difference between a drab, dreaded workout and a fab energetic one is the music playing in the background.
A number of studies show that music acts as a powerful motivator, and can even temporarily dull feelings of exhaustion, which enables you to work harder on those squats and crunches.
More and more gyms are getting into the groove and blast feel-good music to rev your body up to do more reps. If you’re planning on sculpting that butt with a series of at home workouts, you can definitely bring the gym vibe home by making a kick ass playlist.

10 11 booty songs that’ll pump you up and power you through your butt workouts.
Sir Mix a Lot’s I Like Big Butts
Arguably, the most famous (and detailed!) song about the sexiness of a big juicy butt! I guarantee this will inspire you to do double time on your butt routine so you can prance around in a sexy bikini at the beach. Plus points for this booty song for permanently being part of pop culture by being the unofficial anthem of Ross and Rachel’s relationship in Friends.
Queen -- Fat Bottomed Girls
This is the original big booty song -- from even long before big butts were all the rage. But Queen knew what was up -- fat bottomed girls do make the “rockin’ world go round.” 😉
Jason Derulo -- “Wiggle” feat. Snoop Dogg
It’s about time a song was made about the struggle to get into trendy skintight jeans if you have ample curves! If there’s one song that will have you doing leg raises ala Jen Selter, this is it. Plus, who doesn’t appreciate the cheeky comparison of a juicy booty that’s so big it can be like two planets?
Meghan Trainor -- All About That Bass
This song is the best at making you feel super confident, even if you’re no size 2. Of course our favorite line has to be “my momma she told me don’t worry about your size. She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night”. Right on girl, we definitely agree!
Jennifer Lopez -- Booty ft. Iggy Azalea
This list wouldn’t be complete without a song from the proud owner of one of the most famous butts of the 1990’s (until now!). The tantalizing rhythm plus the catchy riffs from Iggy makes this the perfect song to do all those squat pulses to. Raise your hands if you got a big booty!
Nicki Minaj -- Anaconda
When one thinks of Nicki Minaj, the image of her unbelievably shaped butt can’t come far behind. Props to this girl for releasing, one of the cheekiest (pun intended!) songs that marked 2014 as the official year of the booty.
Ludacris -- Money Maker ft. Pharrell
Just the thought of Pharell asking you to shake your money maker is enough to get us through another 20 minutes of high intensity butt exercises. No one says no to Pharrell!
Destiny’s Child -- Bootylicious
The best part about this song, is you don’t have to have a coveted bubble butt to get down to it. This trio is all about women’s empowerment, so you shouldn’t be shy to shake what your momma gave you whenever this ditty plays. Yes, you’re ready for this jelly!
Fergie -- The Black Eyed Peas -- My Humps
Back in 2005, it was pretty racy to be talking about booty so openly, so Fergie had to come up with a lot of creative metaphors. It worked so well, it became a chart topper, and paved the way for more overt ass-shaking songs as well!
Juvenile -- Back That Ass Up
Hard to believe that this club favorite, was released more than 15 years ago. Even if it’s a 90’s song, you have to admit that until now, one of the main reasons you’re doing your time at the gym is to get a double take worthy derriere that would make your man stop and pay attention.
Wiz Khalifa -- Ass Drop
One of our favorites, thanks to its infection beats and smooth vocals. Plus, we’re all after butts that make our boyfriends want to buy us everything!
