Rude Boy - Rihanna

tempo: 87 bpm

bpm range: 85 to 90 bpm

the DJ’s take: For all the times Rihanna asks whether you can “get it up” in the hook, is there any doubt this should be in a Viagra ad? Seriously though, a high-impact track that's gotten lost in the shuffle considering all her other mega-hits. Blow the dust off this one and see if your crowd remembers.

Some other key-compatible singles to mix or mash up with:

Izzo (H.O.V.A.) - Jay-Z
Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys
Famous - Kanye West
Back to Back - Drake
Izzo (H.O.V.A.) - Jay-Z
Energy - Drake
The Black The Berry - Kendrick Lamar
