Music Review: BedRock - Young Money ft. Lloyd

Speed: 74 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm

The DJ’s Take: So it’s late at night on a Tuesday, and I’m watching TV when I hear this track bumping outside on the street. Keep in mind that it’s about 15 degrees out there. I peek out my window, and it’s this group of high school kids with their hats turned back smoking something good in their car, windows rolled down, and heads nodding hard. So at the very least, the dude bros out there are feeling it.

Personally, the production’s kinda cool, and it’s not a bad option as a set closer for when the couples are pairing up and getting ready to call it a night. I find this single a little more of a challenge to beatmatch in because it’s soft and quiet, so turn the volume up in those headphones when you’re doing it. This is already a hit on the Billboard Hot 100, and should be up there for a little bit longer.
