Sledgehammer - Fifth Harmony
Speed: 100 bpm
The DJ's Take: Not my favorite all-time track with the name 'Sledgehammer' - I'm giving that honor to Peter Gabriel. But there's some slick production here, reasonably easy to listen to (minus the campy voice distortion in the hook), and it's making a move up the charts. Beware the percussionless interlude in the middle - like throwing cold water on the dancefloor.
Try mixing with tracks like BeFoUr - ZAYN, Team - Iggy Azalea, L.A. Love (La La) - Fergie, Turn Down For What - DJ Snake and Lil Jon, Show Me - Kid Ink, and You and Your Friends - Wiz Khalifa. Animals - Maroon 5 could be in play if you slow down a couple bpm's.
