I like the playlist too...And I'm all about some Beyonce...all those trumpets and cymbals make you want to break it down.

I agree with you Afrodoisa. Beyonce has some great workout songs. I'm more of a neo soul type of girl but when it comes to exercise my playlist is filled with beyonce.
Maybe i'll do a beyonce playlist next....
