Music Review: Firework - Katy Perry

Speed: 124 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Why do I have a premonition that this will either be the soundtrack for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve, or the WNBA Finals? I don’t watch either, so I guess I’ll never know, but maybe I should go put down a bet in Vegas while the vision is still fresh. Honestly, I don’t know if this will do as well as her other recent singles, although the song title and inspirational violins will give this a shelf life beyond the charts. I will say this - it’s no less worthy of making it into the top 10 than anything else she’s done.

Try mixing with the following to stay key-compatible: I Love It - Icona Pop, Cannonball - Showtek & Justin Prime, Animals - Martin Garrix, Under Control - Calvin Harris & Alesso, Stay The Night - Zedd, Clarity - Zedd, This Is What It Feels Like - Armin Van Buuren, Turn Up The Music - Chris Brown, Wild Ones - Flo Rida ft. Sia, Beautiful People - Chris Brown, Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO, I Like It - Enrique Iglesias
