Hold It Against Me - Britney Spears

tempo: 133 bpm

bpm range: 130 to 135 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Fist-pumping beat with a bad pickup line as a hook - sounds like 2011 to me. A former #1 hit in the US by an iconic modern pop artist, and a throwback you can drop on a club night or a Top 40 set in a loud bar.

Good list of key-compatible tracks in the 128-129 bpm range:

Beautiful - Akon ft. Colby O'Donnis
Shots - LMFAO
Blame - Calvin Harris ft. John NewmanThinking About You - Calvin Harris
Turn Me On - David Guetta ft. Nicki MinajWhere Have You Been - Rihanna
Don't Stop The Party - Black Eyed Peas
Give Me Everything - Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo & Afrojack
Just Can't Get Enough - Black Eyed Peas
Baby Got Back - Sir Mix-A-Lot

And from 130 to 135 bpm:

Till The World Ends - Britney Spears
Judas - Lady Gaga
Where Them Girls At - David Guetta ft. Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj
Take Over Control - Afrojack ft. Eva Simons
Cooler Than Me - Mike Posner
