Birthday Sex - Jeremih

tempo: 60 bpm

bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm, 60 bpm to 65 bpm

the DJ’s take: One of the big hits of 2009-10, and a solid r&b closer during a pop set. As someone who had a regular gig at the time, there was no better way to tell the crowd 'you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.' Some key-compatible tracks worth mixing with:

On The Come Up - Mike WiLL Made-It ft. Big Sean
March Madness - Future
Needed Me - Rihanna
2 Phones - Kevin Gates
CoCo - O.T. Genasis
Birthday Sex - Jeremih
Man of the Year - SchoolBoy Q
Loveeeeeee Song - Rihanna ft. Future
