Music Review: Your Love - Nicki Minaj



Speed: 95 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Nicki Minaj resembles a black Snooki, only a little better looking and more talented. Honestly, when I heard the first few bars of this song, I could’ve sworn it was Justin Bieber singing. Definitely a chick song, and already in the Billboard Top 30, with strong potential to go up based on the saccharine factor. Interesting note you won’t care about - the beat samples Annie Lennox’ (of Eurythmics) No More I Love Yous. And yes, the fact I could figure that out within 15 seconds means I’ve listened to too much soft rock radio in my day.

More relevantly, I thought of 5 different popular tracks you can mix with this song if you turn on the key adjust. Pretty sure that’s a new record for this blog. Haven’t actually tried this out yet, but my ear tells me it should work. So if you don’t feel like using your brain during a set, that’s about 20-23 minutes on cruise control before you have to start thinking again.

Time to Pretend - MGMT

tempo: 101 bpm The DJ's Take: Track #5 in mix #62 (8:05): I wanted to go a little off-beat in this mix, step outside traditional pop and hiphop, and this one fit the bill. A little on the louder side, and I didn't want to drown out the previous song with the screeching riff at the beginning, so we brought the volume down a little: Bound to bring out the inner-hippie in a crowd; worth a spin for a change of pace. Some key-compatible music from 100 to 105 bpm: Classic - The Knocks ft. Powers Too Close - Next Levitating - Dua Lipa ft.
