Cheyenne - Jason Derulo

Speed: 100 bpm

The DJ's Take: Nice background music for an 80s movie as the protagonist searches the city streets for the love interest that got away. Here's my question - is there room for two songs from the same album at the top of the charts at the same time (not counting Taylor Swift)? In this case, I'm guessing not - Want To Want Me is an effusive, dancefloor-friendly blockbuster that'll probably overshadow any of the other singles.

That said, it's a clean, well-produced pop song that should get some radio play. Certainly worth a spin for a mixtape or during the 'new music' portion of your programming.

If you're looking for key-compatible tracks, try going with Shots - Imagine Dragons, Classic - The Knocks, Sleeping With A Friend - Neon Trees, Midnight City - M83, Alejandro - Lady Gaga, LoveGame - Lady Gaga, and Nasty Boy - Notorious BIG.

If you're working in the 97-98 bpm range, Style by Taylor Swift becomes another option.
