Break Free - Ariana Grande ft. Zedd
Speed: 130 bpm
The DJ's Take: It's probably been addressed before, but Ariana Grande really needs to learn to enunciate her words. I'm not typically a stickler for lyrics, but this is kind of ridiculous. Gonna be (or already has been) a tough conversation for whoever has to tell her.
All that said, I think teens and early 20-somethings will eat this up. Has that manic Call On Me vibe. Try mixing with some or all of the following to stay key-compatible: Red Lights - Tiesto, Helicopter - Martin Garrix & Firebeatz, Samurai (Go Hard) - R3hab, Love Me Again - John Newman, Wizard - Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway, Revolution - R3hab & Nervo & Ummet Ozcan, Scream & Shout - will.i.am and Britney Spears, Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO, Count On Me - Chase & Status, Scream - Usher, Hey Brother - Avicii. Love Runs Out - OneRepublic could work too, if you stretch both tracks to around 125 bpm.
