If you’ve been watching the Olympics, swimming to be precise, you’ve probably seen Michael Phelps wearing his big ol’ headphones before each race.

So what does the 20-time gold medalist listen to before dominating in the pool?

In a recent article from the New York Times, Phelps has said he listens to a steady dose of Eminem, Young Jeezy and his most recent edition, Eric Church.

He’s said to have a playlist that features¬†“Drink In My Hand,” “The Outsiders,” and “Creepin'” just to name a few. With upbeat songs like that, we now understand why he swims so fast.
