The BMC Top 5 for 10/8/10 to 10/14/10

Week #2 of October 2010 is done, and I can sense a gradual shift in the balance of power on these charts: BMC Top 5 Singles for 10/8/10 to 10/14/10: 1. Love the Way You Lie - Eminem ft. Rihanna 2. Like a G6 - Far East Movement 3. Right Above It - Lil Wayne 4. Club Can’t Handle Me - Flo Rida and David Guetta 5. Airplanes - B.o.B ft. Hayley Williams Top 5 BPMs for 10/8/10 to 10/14/10: 1. 125 bpm 2. 120 bpm 3. 115 bpm 4. 100 bpm 5. 130 bpm On the surface, the charts don’t look that different. But this week, the impossible almost happened - Love The Way You Lie nearly fell to #2. It’s been the most popular song on this site by a wide margin on a weekly basis, and Like A G6 was very close to taking the #1 spot. So does it mean the end of Rihanna ’s reign at the top? Stay tuned. (Photo via Morguefile )

Runaway - Kanye West ft. Pusha T

tempo: 88 bpm bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm the DJ’s take: Kind of sounds like a kid's piano lesson with some percussion. I probably wouldn't play this during a pop gig, but considering the initial buzz it generated (and the fact it's Kanye), somebody might recognize it. Some key-compatible tracks between 85 and 90 bpm: Real Friends - Kanye West Die A Happy Man - Nelly We Go Down - Krewella And from 90 to 95 bpm: In Da Club - 50 Cent It Girl - Jason Derulo Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg Africa - Toto Say Aah - Trey Songz Rollin - Calvin Harris, Future, Khalid Bloodstream - The Chainsmokers Boom Clap - Charli XCX Addiction - Ryan Leslie ft. Fabolous I Got To Have It - Ed OG download or stream Runaway: amazon itunes

What's Wrong With Them - Lil Wayne ft. Nicki Minaj

tempo: 75 bpm bpm range: 70 bpm  to  75 bpm ,  75 bpm  to  80 bpm the DJ’s take: The distorted buzzing synth is hypnotic, if not sleep-inducing. That said, name recognition counts, and you've got two pretty notable vocalists here. Worth a spin if you've got a couple minutes to kill early on in a hiphop set. Try mixing or mashing up with key-compatible tracks like: iSpy - Kyle ft. Lil Yachty Baptized In Fire - Kid Cudi, Travis Scott Break Up - Mario Trap Queen - Fetty Wap Alarm - Anne-Marie Ain't No Time - Future Remember Me - Chris Brown ft. Tyga 7/11 - BeyoncĂ© Tuesday - I LOVE MAKONNEN Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj Motivation - Kelly Rowland Young Forever - Jay-Z Love In This Club (feat. Young Jeezy) - Usher We Belong Together - Mariah Carey download or stream What's Wrong With Them: amazon spotify playlist itunes

We No Speak Americano - Yolanda Be Cool vs. DCUP

tempo: 125 bpm bpm range: 120  to  125 bpm ,  125  to  130 bpm the DJ’s take: If you’re ready to get a little international, this just might do the trick. Hard for someone like me to pin down - feels Mediterranean, with a little Greek / Italian flavor. A notable hit in 2010, and people should still remember it. Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like: Memories - David Guetta ft. Kid Cudi Temperature - Sean Paul Move Your Body (Alan Walker Remix) - Sia WIEE - Martin Garrix If It Ain't Love - Jason Derulo Home - Firebeatz & Jay Hardway Sunglasses At Night - Corey Hart Shut Up and Dance - WALK THE MOON Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor) - Pitbull ft. T-Pain download or stream We No Speak Americano: amazon spotify playlist itunes
