Music Review: Love the Way You Lie - Eminem ft. Rihanna

Speed: 87 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Sentimental guitars? Check. Similar key and bpm? Check. In other words, this is the 2010 hiphop reincarnation of Beyoncé’s Irreplaceable. It’s a nice song though, with two superstars people can recognize as soon as you play it. Plus, it’s currently #2 on the Billboard charts, and while I haven’t downloaded this yet, requests are already coming in from females, which means it may be worth a spin.

If you're in the 80 to 85 bpm range, consider mixing or mashing up with tracks like Gotta Lotta - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne, See You Again - Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth, The Heart Wants What It Wants - Selena Gomez, Come & Get It - Selena Gomez, and Started From The Bottom - Drake.
