Real Friends - Kanye West

Speed: 86 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm, 85 bpm to 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: Nice track to have on repeat when you're lying in bed, staring at the ceiling, wondering if anyone will ever love you for you... Seriously though, this is obviously getting a lot of buzz, so whenever you can download it, should be a good addition to the rotation. In the meantime, here's the link on Soundcloud. And in a hypothetical world where we can mix or mash this up with something key-compatible, here are some of my picks in the 80 to 85 bpm range:

Back Up - DeJ Loaf ft. Big Sean, Play No Games - Big Sean, Just Kickin' It - Xscape, Always Be My Baby - Mariah Carey, Down and Out - Cam'ron, Cheers (Drink To That) - Rihanna, We Go Down - Krewella

If you're going up toward 90, this could sound interesting with Africa - Toto, Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg, It Girl - Jason Derulo, and In Da Club - 50 Cent.
