Dirt Off Your Shoulder - Jay-Z

tempo: 82 bpm

bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

the DJ’s take: This beat encapsulates the modern definition of 'bounce.' Just watch the [alleged] moment when Jay-Z first heard it. Probably not too different from when he met Beyoncé:

Get this in the rotation a.s.a.p. and make it your designated WMD.

Try mixing or mashing up with key-compatible tracks like:

Best I Ever Had - Drake
Comin Out Strong - Future ft. The Weeknd
Love & War - Yellow Claw
Don't Mind - Kent Jones
Happy - Pharrell
Daydreamin' - Lupe Fiasco
Hello (Cover) - Conkarah & Rosie Delmah
I Can Transform Ya - Chris Brown
