Sportwear brand Pour Moi shared a new study that detailed the relationship between different music and running speed. The data looked into 60 runs among a group of joggers, all of whom listened to different artists.

Beyoncé had the highest ranking on the list. Runners who listened to Bey cut their running time by two minutes and 45 seconds. Meanwhile, those who were listening to Drake lagged behind. The runners who had Drizzy’s music in their ears increased their running time by 6%. The study shows that listening to Drake could add nearly 15 extra minutes to their run-time.

Other artists who joined Drake in slowing down joggers are BTS, Nicki MinajDoja Cat, and Katy Perry. Meanwhile, the list of artists who made the joggers move quicker is Harry Styles, Britney Spears, Cardi BTravis Scott, Kanye West, Rihanna, and more.
