Before I Let Go - Beyoncé



tempo: 103 bpm

bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm

the dj's take: That bass starting around 1:43 makes me think of an old 2Pac track:



Funky. Anyway, whether you prefer the cover or the original, it's new Beyoncé, so this should probably go in the rotation.

Old Town Road (Remix) - Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus



tempo: 68 bpm

bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm

the dj's take: Fun idea for your instagram page while the song is still hot - rent a horse, a cowboy / cowgirl outfit, visit this location, and pose accordingly:



Instant likes and follows guaranteed! Then again, my social media presence suggests you should get your advice elsewhere.

Guess I'll stick with what I know. Try mixing with:

Sensualidad - Bad Bunny x Prince Royce x J Balvin
She Knows - NeYo
We Dem Boyz - Wiz Khalifa
Right Now (Na Na Na) - Akon
All Night - Beyoncé

Con Calma - Daddy Yankee, Snow



tempo: 94 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

the dj's take: Song #2 in our XXV mix (2:31):



That video reminds me of one of those The General insurance commercials:



Ridiculous. Proves once again that old people shouldn't be allowed to drive after a certain age.

As for the track, you could certainly do a little throwback back-to-back with Snow's Informer - similar key, and close enough in bpm.

Man of the Woods - Justin Timberlake



tempo: 50 bpm

bpm range: 45 bpm to 50 bpm50 bpm to 55 bpm

the dj's take: The leadoff song in our nine is fine mix:



Half pop, half honky tonk - would be fun to drop this in a place like the Dogwood Cocktail Cabin. I sense a strong influence from Lou Reed's Take A Walk On The Wild Side; someone should do a mashup of that. Or you could go into A Tribe Called Quest's Can I Kick It.

Some other key-compatible tracks:

From 95 to 100 bpm:
