It Won't Stop - Sevyn Streeter ft. Chris Brown
Speed: 60 bpm
The DJ's Take: If someone asked me to pick between We Can't Stop and It Won't Stop, I'm going with the latter. Sensible strategy here - add a much more recognized name in Chris Brown after the original release and see if it helps you make more of a push up the charts. And you know what? Not bad. Not bad at all. Fingersnaps, fake guitar with a nostalgic echo, faintly pulsing synth, and emotive vocals. In fact, after the first listen, I immediately thought, 'Somewhere in the world, someone has choreographed a slow and sensual dance routine to this track.' Lo and behold, I was right.
In any case, It Won't Stop is end-of-the-night music for a dj. Picture this - you're spinning in a Boston bar at 1:45 am, rocking the crowd with Get Lucky, manager's telling you time to wrap things up, and you need something that'll let everyone down easy. Key-compatible, and you can probably beatmatch seamlessly. Worth a download.
Editor's Note: I've seen some comments on YouTube about how this sounds like an Aaliyah song. Sure does.
