Love Me Harder - Ariana Grande ft. The Weeknd

Speed: 99 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm, 100 to 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: Probably the most mature track I've heard from this artist. Still have trouble understanding what she's saying at times, but I'm a sucker for beats that sound like they could come straight out of Miami Vice (like Do What U Want or Hold On, We're Going Home). Is it a hit? I don't see why not.

If you're going in the 95 to 100 bpm range, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like NO - Meghan Trainor, No Mediocre - T.I., Juicy - Notorious BIG, Boom Clap - Charli XCX, Africa - Toto, Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg, It Girl - Jason Derulo, Rack City - Tyga, I Got To Have It - Ed OG, Say Aah - Trey Songz, Single Ladies - Beyoncé, In Da Club - 50 Cent, Ooh! - Mary J. Blige, Addiction - Ryan Leslie ft. Fabolous, Headband - B.o.B, and Why You Wanna - T.I.

If you're in that 100 to 105 bpm range, try mixing with tracks like Roses - The Chainsmokers, Love Yourself - Justin Bieber, Ain't It Fun - Paramore, Mo Money Mo Problems - Notorious BIG, Going Back To Cali - Notorious BIG, Love More - Chris Brown, and Turn Me On - Kevin Lyttle.
