Music Review: Birthday Sex - Jeremih

Speed: 60 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm, 60 bpm to 65 bpm

The DJ’s Take: So one of the female bartenders made me pinky swear I would never play this again, and you know that pinky swears are legally binding in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, people ask for this, since it’s pretty high up on the pop charts. And if you want some solid bedroom music, you can’t do much better than Birthday Sex. I like playing it at the end of the night - encourages people to go home and do what they were put on this planet to do.

Also, there’s an up-tempo remix that’s about 130 bpm. A little hit or miss in my experience, but more appropriate for the middle of the night when people feel like dancing. Links to both are below.
