Iggy Azalea's rise to fame has been astonishing, not only because she's an Australian woman holding her own in a genre (rap) dominated by American men, but because the success of her string of initial singles led to the re-release of her debut album. To celebrate Azalea's undeniable talent, we've crafted a playlist to capture the momentum of her music so you can inject it into your exercise routine.

The songs featured in the mix below fall into two categories defined by their different speeds and tempos, denoted by their beats per minute (BPM). Collaborations like "Go Hard or Go Home," "Fancy," and "Black Widow" each clock in below 100 BPM but make up in assertive rhymes and driving beats whatever they lack in speed. These tracks are ideal for warm-ups and lower-intensity workouts. On the flipside, she's released a number of dance-oriented tracks with faster tempos that will come in handy when you want to pick up the pace. In those moments, you might want to fire up her early single "Work," her J. Lo collaboration "Booty," or one of the featured club remixes. (Pair these quick tracks with a fast-paced routine like this Fat-Burning Tread-Tabata Workout.)

Although listening to the same artist throughout a playlist could feel redundant, Iggy's songs feature a mix of styles and guests that will keep you on your toes. The different beats and tempos will keep your feet moving! Ahead, 10 of her most dynamic tracks.
