Gold Digger - Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx

tempo: 92 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

the DJ’s take: Let's go back in time to 2005 - I am dj’ing 3 nights a week in a bar down south. No joke: there were glow-in-the-dark NASCAR murals on the walls. And I got at least 5 requests for this every night - it was like being a parent with a kid who couldn't get enough of the soundtrack to Frozen. Easily the biggest hit of that year, regardless of where you were in the US, and it should still get people moving.

Strong list of key-compatible hits to mix / mash up with:

Work - Rihanna ft. Drake
Escápate Conmigo - Wisin ft. Ozuna
Faith - George Michael
Don't You Need Somebody - RedOne
Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Lean Back - Terror Squad, Fat Joe & Remy
Hey Daddy (Daddy's Home) [feat. Plies] - Usher
Winner - Jamie Foxx
Try Again - Aaliyah
