If your inspirational battery is dead, you may need to jump-start it with some fresh musical energy. These songs can help infuse new blood into an otherwise dull cheer routine—give them a listen to see if you can find the fresh sound you’ve been looking for:
1. "High Hopes"—Panic! At the Disco
Although they’re no longer the new kids on the block, Panic! At the Disco sounds as fresh as a newborn in “High Hopes.” The booming brass section, crisp vocals, and comeback-kid lyrics make it an ideal song for stunts involving great heights. Our Future House Remix, at 135 BPM, is great for high-energy cheer sections.
2. “Old Town Road”—Lil Nas X feat. Billy Ray Cyrus
Genres collide in this country trap viral hit by Lil Nas X, featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. The combination of country themes, catchy loops, and amusing rap sections means this song has something for everyone in the audience. Our Country Fitness Remix ups the tempo to 130 BPM, making it suitable for tumbling and movement cheer sections.
3. “7 Rings”—Ariana Grande
In “7 Rings,” Ariana Grande takes the essence of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music and transforms it into an appeal for extreme indulgence in the name of sisterhood. The notes of female empowerment make the track perfect for coordinated dance sections with your squad. Our Future House Remix, at 130 BPM, nearly doubles the song’s original tempo and makes it a perfect addition to your cheer routine soundtrack.
4. “Sucker”—Jonas Brothers
The Jonas Brothers have shown the world what a comeback should look like with this hit single off their upcoming reunion album, Happiness Begins. “Sucker” is a delightful earworm to dance along to, and our remix adds drops and high-energy buildups to allow the track to fit nicely into any cheer routine.
5. “This Feeling”—The Chainsmokers feat. Kelsea Ballerini
“This Feeling” is a collaboration between DJ and production duo The Chainsmokers and country music singer Kelsea Ballerini. The fusion of heartfelt country twang with clean EDM-pop vibes makes it a balanced, inspirational track, and our EDM Fitness Remix brings up the energy just enough for all of your stunting and tumbling needs.
6. “Look What God Gave Her”—Thomas Rhett
This classic country song by Thomas Rhett was written with some help from his dad as a celebration of his wife, making it a family-friendly track that’s popular with all audiences. Our remix takes the song’s natural groove and adds a heavy-hitting beat, groovy breakdowns, and infectious harmonies that are ideal for movement and pyramid sections.
7. “Giant”—Calvin Harris and Rag’n’Bone Man
This collaboration brings together the electro-house talents of Scottish DJ Calvin Harris and the powerful, baritone voice of English singer-songwriter Rag’n’Bone Man. The result is a catchy, gospel-inspired dance song that will make anyone who listens believe they, too, can crush boulders beneath their feet. Try our Future House Remix for any part of your routine that could use a little extra oomph.
8. “Happier"—Marshmello and Bastille
Originally written for Justin Bieber, “Happier” was such a hit with the band that Bastille front man Dan Smith decided to keep the song for himself. The British band collaborated with American music producer Marshmello, who “managed to find some euphoria in a pretty melancholy, direct song,” according to Smith. The pairing transforms the bittersweet love song into a track that’s worthy of a high-impact cheer routine, and our Electro House Remix puts it over the top.
And there you have it—I hope these songs provide enough inspiration to recharge your next routine!
