Perfect Illusion - Lady Gaga

Speed: 125 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ's Take: Been a minute since we heard from Lady Gaga, and the initial buzz around this single shows that she still has a high profile. Sounds more like a show tune than something you'd spin on a Top 40 night, but you can't deny what's hot on the [suburban] streets. One thing to keep in mind - there's a key change. So for the first part of the song, try mixing with:

My Boo - Ghost Town DJs, No Money - Galantis, Hey - Fais ft. Afrojack, Sweet Harmony - Dubvision, DADDY - PSY, Another You - Armin Van Buuren ft. Mr. Probz, Cool - Alesso, Get Outta My Way - Kylie Minogue, Waiting For Love - Avicii, La La La - Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith, Pompeii - Bastille, Invincible - Borgeous, Dear Boy - Avicii, I Could Be the One (Avicii vs Nicky Romero) [Nicktim - Radio Edit] - Single - Avicii & Nicky Romero, The Other Side - Jason Derulo, Alive - Krewella, Easy Love - Sigala, The Veldt - EP - deadmau5

After the change in key (if you're staying key-compatible), try going into tracks like:

Paradise - Chris Brown and Benny Benassi, Waiting - Oliver Heldens & Throttle, More Than Ever - Breathe Carolina & Ryos, Something New - Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Birthday - Katy PerryPlay Hard - David GuettaSweet Nothing - Calvin Harris, Super Bass - Nicki Minaj
