Pour It Up - Rihanna
Speed: 67 bpm
The DJ's Take: Here it is - definitive proof that you can take any slow, yawn-inducing 'hiphop' beat, replace generic poser rapper with Rihanna, and it will sound even better. That said, better does not mean good, because it's still pretty bad. Anyway, if you're a top 40 dj, I'd still keep an eye on this one, especially if someone does a double-time dance remix at about 130 bpm.
On a side note, if you feel like getting really ridiculous, mix with Pop That and Bandz a Make Her Dance. Do this enough nights, and I'm pretty sure you'll see something amusing on the dance floor. No Option and Iz U Down are a couple of other possibilities.
