Music Review: Got Your Back - T.I. ft. Keri Hilson

Speed: 74 bpm

The DJ’s Take: To me, this new T.I. track is like the ultimate remix. The drums sound like a variation on Knock You Down, and the key and bpm are almost identical to Bedrock. Plus, the fake accordion will make you feel like you’re either in Paris, or on a pirate ship. I prefer Paris, simply because I’d rather have room to roam, as opposed to being stuck with a bunch of criminals who could make me walk the plank at any time.

Does this single have hit potential? It recently cracked the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, although I’m inclined to say no. Not because it’s bad, but more because people seem to like faster songs these days. If you’re a DJ and want to test it out for yourself, I recommend blending it with Bedrock and seeing how your crowd reacts.
