As more and more people around the world are staying home to flatten the curve of the coronavirus pandemic, so the streaming numbers for some songs are skyrocketing.

Why? Because lots of people are choosing to break a sweat at home now that gyms – especially in South Africa where there is 21-day lockdown – are closed.

According to Google Trends searches around working out at home have risen by 488%, showing just how much demand has grown for keeping fit at home.

Who comes out on top of these high-intensity playlists? According to Spotify data, Dua Lipa's smash hit, Don't Start Now is the most popular home workout song.

Great news for fans of this track is that Dua's new album, Future Nostalgia is out now and packed with songs just like that.
