Music Review: Power - Kanye West ft. Dwele

Speed: 78 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 75 bpm to 80 bpm

The DJ’s Take: I’m a little bit like that kid from the old Life cereal commercials who doesn’t like anything. And I have to admit - this track made my head nod. Sounds like Kanye recycled the beat from Amazing, but made it a little faster, fuller and more upbeat. Currently at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100, but if you spin top 40, stash it away til it hits #1, or you see a group of hiphop heads walk in. Or you can play it anyway, and blend it in with other stuff that people can get down to (see below).
