While last week's list turned up an unexpected new single from Paula Abdul, this week might even top that—as Lionel Richie's new song with Akon makes an appearance. As was the case with Ms. Abdul, it was a remix that actually propelled Mr. Richie back onto the dance charts. In fact, the month's successes were nearly exclusively dance cuts and remixes—with rock music being represented solely by "Homecoming" and "Girlfriend." And, in fairness, the latter of the two could just as easily pass for dance music, and inspired a heap of remixes itself.
MC's resident DJ Chris Lawhorn weeds through each week's releases to find the best, new music for a workout. The highlights are presented here, organized by their beats per minute.
