Throwback Thursday: Paper Planes - MIA



Speed: 86 bpm

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

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.

Songs worth mixing with in the 80 to 85 bpm range:

Chainsaw - Nick Jonas
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
Paper Planes - MIA
American Oxygen - Rihanna
