Music Review: Paper Planes - MIA

Speed: 86 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm, 85 bpm to 90 bpm

Mix this one with: Messin' Around - Pitbull ft. Enrique Iglesias, Be As You Are (JordanXL Remix) - Mike Posner, Send My Love - Adele, The Man - Aloe Blacc, Live Your Life - Rihanna, Royals - Lorde, American Oxygen - Rihanna

The DJ’s Take: Interesting how a song comes out in summer 2007, doesn’t do anything chart-wise, gets featured in a movie about weed a year later, then blows up and goes top 10. Just goes to show if a single is hot, it’ll get noticed at some point.

If a psychologist were to ask me how Paper Planes makes me feel, I would say it’s like this pulsing ray of sunlight bumping inside me like a heartbeat. And no, I am not in third grade, nor am I an aspiring beat poet. Anyway, I’ve played this a lot, and it’s saved me a lot. Technically it’s a touch above 85 bpm, but sounds better in the 80-85 bpm range. Put it in rotation if you haven’t already.
