Let Me Love You - Ne-Yo

Speed: 125 bpm

The DJ's Take: Picture this - you're watching Step Up 7: The Concrete Jungle (Ed. note - not that much of a stretch; apparently we're already at Step Up 4). The female lead character has overcome a rough upbringing, self-confidence issues brought on by an abusive relationship, condescending peers, and so much more to land a big audition at Juilliard's contemporary dance program (I assume they have one). For her final number, with her new love interest in the audience, she comes out to this song and gives the performance of her life. Amazing.

Seriously though, I could see this rising a bit more in the charts - it has a youthful, inspirational feel to it. Turn on key adjust and mix with tracks like Part of Me, I Wanna Go, and California Gurls, and you may be on to something.
