Music Review: Just The Way You Are - Bruno Mars



Speed: 109 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 105 to 110 bpm, 110 to 115 bpm

The DJ’s Take: It’s not too often that you see a new and faster pop track that isn’t in the 100-105 bpm range, or 115-130. But it’s cool too, because that means you have more potential songs you can mix it with, depending on the speed you’re mixing at (see my recommendations below).

As far as the song itself goes, I like the shuffling break beat, and Bruno Mars is a solid vocalist. Maybe a little on the touchy-feely, sentimental side for the club, although I wouldn’t be surprised if an electro remix pops up at some point. But at the very least, it’s worth a spot on your mixtape or demo.
