Rocketeer - Far East Movement ft. Ryan Tedder

Speed: 96 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Nice, chill song, and its current top 10 status on Billboard means people will recognize it. That said, doesn’t this sound a lot like Lupe Fiasco’s Superstar? High-pitched hook sung by a white guy, cascading piano riff, similar key, similar bpm, similar vibe - pretty clear to me. Anyway, maybe a better track to play at the end of a night, and you can mix it in with Superstar to get people waving their lighters/BlackBerrys/whatever bright things they have in their pockets.
