Work. Work. Work. The playlist.

Words byHayley Hayley

Rihanna really had it right. There’s something ‘bout that work, work, work, work, work. With September finally here, it’s on everyone’s minds. When we were younger, we had so many exciting things to look forward to with back to school: new school supplies, more time with our friends and interesting new classes.

Now that we’re adults, it can feel a little more difficult to get excited about heading back to work after a summer spent vacationing, splashing in the sea and sitting out on our favorite terraces. But just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to getting back to work, back into a routine. To get you going, to ensure you’re ready to rumble when you cross the threshold at the office for what feels like the first time in ages, we’ve crafted an incredible playlist for you.

These tunes should motivate you and get you pumped up for the next few months and make those first days back better than ever. So grab your headphones and start downloading. Because this year, back to work is going to be groovy.
