Music Review: DJ Got Us Fallin In Love - Usher ft. Pitbull

Speed: 120 bpm

The DJ’s Take: This song is so generic that during my first listen, it reminded me of at least 3 or 4 other recent hits. Off the top of my head, I had flashbacks to TiK ToK, Break Your Heart, and Please Don’t Stop the Music, mostly because of the pulsing percussion and/or the general feel. Just listening without mixing, none of these is really a match key-wise, but you could blend them together along with a bunch of other dance tracks in the 120-125 bpm range to keep the floor moving. Is this a hit? Probably. Just give me a couple months before I come around on it.
