Starships - Nicki Minaj



Speed: 125 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm, 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ's Take: If you're older than 15 years old, there's no excuse for liking this song. I feel like it would fit in as a very cutesy K-Pop dance track with all the distortion and sound effects. Used to go to the bars in K-Town in NYC (32nd St. btw 5th and Broadway; solid place for Korean food if you're visiting) around 2001-05, and this took me back. Break it out for middle school and freshman/sophomore high school dances; otherwise, play at your own peril.

ROCKSTAR - DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch

tempo: 90 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #1 in our chapter 51 mix (made in Logic Pro X ): Big bass, so I had to be strategic about where to transition out and into Rihanna's Work . A little more of an in-depth look, plus some thoughts on its shelf life in a dj's rotation: Bottom line, when nightlife at college bars picks up again, this will likely be in heavy rotation.

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
