Apple Fitness+ will be adding seven new workouts featuring Beyoncé’s music on Monday as part of its Artist Spotlight series. The Bad Bunny and Foo Fighters collaboration is set to come out later this month.

For Apple, the continued focus on Fitness+ Artist Spotlights represents the latest in a series of moves to include exclusive music content.
