Where Have You Been - Rihanna



tempo: 128 bpm

bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #7 in mix 50 (10:35):



So apparently Guinness tracks the world record for highest score on this song in the Just Dance video game. Probably looked something like this:



Would you watch? Maybe. Anyway, the aforementioned record was set in 2015, which means it's time for this guy to mount a challenge:



Anyway, going back to mix 50, that transition into the Black Eyed Peas Don't Stop The Party is butter. Club-level beat matching there, and strong mashup potential if you have some time to spare.

Quick note: I found it was a little softer volume-wise than the other dance music in the track list, so keep that in mind.

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now.
