Remixes for Your Workout

Spring break is, perhaps, the busiest time of year for a DJ. In prepping for this year's dance bonanza, I stumbled across a few remixes I hadn't already heard. I thought I'd share them here, in case you missed some of them as well.

In other instances, though, it's the verses or vocalists who've changed — while the music remains largely the same. Accordingly, Lil Wayne and Chamillionaire both turn up in "Party Like a Rockstar," while Fergie trades lines with MJ on a love-it-or-hate-it version of "Beat It."

1. Ludacris, Ciara & Pitbull - How Low (Remix) - 145 BPM
