A recent study has claimed that listening to Drake‘s music while jogging will actually make you run slower than normal.
The non-scientific study, which was conducted by the sportswear retailer Pour Moi, tracked 60 running times by 20 runners and their varying speeds while they listened to a range of artists, with each artist being played for at least 1 kilometre of a run.
Pour Moi found that listening to Drake added 21 seconds per kilometre to their runners’ running time, while his music extended a three-mile run by one minute and 45 seconds.
Beyoncé‘s music proved to be the most effective in the study, inspiring their runners to shave 33 seconds off their average kilometre time and two minutes and 45 seconds off their three-mile run.

Last week saw Drake join Kanye West on stage at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the latter’s ‘Free Larry Hoover’ concert. At one point during the show, Drake declared that West was his “idol”.
The two artists recently reconciled, putting an end to a years-long feud.
